Upon my implementation for an easier date selector, I think we should rework it as follow:

  • Drop extended date concept
  • Add a Time format
  • Extended dates field become a concatenation of date format and time format.
    • The above make it easier to select your preferences
  • Rename GMT to UTC
  • Add automatic daylight saving configs
2527Backend/CoreBug ReportLowDatabase Check »Your mysql supports full utf-8 since 5....Unconfirmed
0%
105.01.201905.01.2019 Task Description

Steps done to create the problem:
Access /index.php?do=admin&area=checks with a MySQL Version >= 5.5.3

Expected behavior:
Flyspray tests for character set and displays »Your mysql supports full utf-8 since 5.5.3. You are using x.x.x and flyspray tables could be upgraded.« when database schema or one table isn’t set to utf8mb4 character set.

Experienced behavior:
Flyspray always shows this note, even though character set is correct.

As far as I can tell from the source, a query gets executed to the database (and if I do that manually the result is “utf8mb4, utf8mb4_unicode_ci” for my database), but the result doesn’t get checket, the note is always shown (line 123)

1782Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowCustom fields on taskPlanned
0%
2.033327.11.201207.01.2020 Task Description

A very useful feature would be to be able to manage a list of custom fields by project, and to be able to add and fill any of these fields to any task.
So we could be able to search on the presence and content of a field.
We could be able to sort the tasks by this field when they are displayed in a list.

A use example is when you create a bug by reference to another external list. It can be very useful to have a field that references a line in the external list.

220.02.201723.02.2017 Task Description

If i set up a custom css in the main FS settings the style doesn’t get applied to all nested projects. I have to set the css to all projects explicitly to get the stylings work on all project pages.
Wouldn’t it be a good idea to first load the css set in the main dialog and after that load an additional css specified in the sub project? Then it would be possible to specify general stylings for all projects and project based stylings also.

224.01.201724.01.2017 Task Description

The filename for the csv export is build based on project name and current date.

Due different handling of web browsers, the appropriate http header should send the filename in ascii and also provide them as utf-8 for web browsers who can handle that.

2058Backend/CoreBug ReportLowClosing of github.com 'Issues' featureNew
0%
24.09.201524.09.2015 Task Description

As discussed with the team some time ago, a consolidation of places where issues are discussed is wanted.

One of the results was, that we do not want people post issues to github.com Issues and instead use our own bugs.flyspray.org
and to prefer "to eat our own dogfood" and a have central place to handle tasks.

As a result we tried to reduce the open issueas on github.com. I was in the process of moving 2 of still 7 open issues there to bugs.flyspray.org when suddenly the Issues on github.com were closed. :-( Now the last 5 issues there are lost at the moment for me and the audience, which where mostly informations to interested users, not bugs.

I think just closing it without an easy accessible alternative is not the best solution.

At least we should wait until the oauth2 authentication for github users should be implemented and setup on bugs.flyspray.org , so people browsing github.com, finding Flyspray project just can
"Login with github"-feature on bugs.flyspray.org.

The blocker to do this: Currently there is missing an option to "connect" an oauth "Login with github"- Login with an existend flyspray userlogin.

So that one userid in flyspray can:

  • login with username and password
  • login with one or more of his social accounts (github, facebook, microsoft, g+) if they are enabled (would it restrict to github.com accounts for bugs.flyspray.org)
1858Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowClone Tasks and ProjectsMaybe
0%
2.0102.04.201315.09.2017 Task Description

My workplace is piloting Flyspray for an internal project and one feature that my boss was asking about was the ability to clone tasks and projects.

We have reoccurring simultaneous projects that contain a large number of testing tasks, and tasks dependent on other tasks, which makes starting up a new project very tedious. If it was possible to clone the contents of a task, or an entire project, we could create template tasks/projects that would really speed up the workflow.

2439Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowClone a ProjectNew

15.09.201715.09.2017 Task Description

There is a request for cloning a project on Flyspray mailing list:

Would be a very welcome features to have Project Templates for repetitive workflow. Any idea if its in the pipeline?
Thanks

Well, not yet.

The question is, how exactly you want that project clone.

Do you want just a rough copy of the project table entry?
Thats quite easy and can even be done without programming or writing a line of SQL just by using PHPMyAdmin (or similiar Tools for PostgreSQL) and copy a row of the project table for example.
See yellow marked project table on the right of the attached dbschema screenshot.

The other extreme is copying every project depending list table entries to new ones.
This sure requires some programming, but not too hard to add this to Flyspray. (all yellow marked tables in the attached dbschema screenshot.

I attach a rough form mockup how could this could look like.

Possible solution

  1. add a new file scripts/ folder for instance copyproject.php (check admin permission)
  2. add a template file to themes/CleanFS/templates/copyproject.tpl
  3. Set a link to that clone form page somewhere, for example on the toplevel page of a project (see screenshot)
  4. Handle the adminuser (or add a clonepermission for that project manager usergroup) submitted form careful and savely either by includes/modify.inc.php (or like scripts/copyproject.php to keep it seperate from core)

The link to the clone form looks then ?project=123&do=copyproject

2214Backend/CoreInformationLowChanging status of task automaticallyUnconfirmed
0%
417.10.201606.11.2016 Task Description

Hello again,

I was wondering (again :-) ) if the following scenario is possible for this bug tracking solution:

Our company uses this bug tracker mainly for helpdesk issues. However, our main users (except IT department) don’t seem to easily understand how to change the status of a ticket, they aren’t interested in doing that also.

So I would like to know if there is a way that we can develop some automatisation in changing the status automatically after customer replies to a message.

Let’s see the following scenario:

  1. user A posts a new task
  2. user B assigns himself (or other) to that specific task - the status automatically is changed to Assigned
  3. user B replies to task by adding a comment - as a result of adding the new comment the task status should change automatically to Waiting for customer - without the need that user B to change the status
  4. user A checks the comment from user B and decides to comment back to him. After pressing the Add comment button, the status should change automatically to Waiting for assignee

If the task is needed to have another status, the users can change them manually, but the automated part should be the waiting for customer and assignee.

On a basic algorithm it shouldn’t be hard (if user is logged in and is task owner, then after comment, task detail - status changing to id 4-5 from task-statuses table on mysql; if user is logged in and assigned to task, after adding comment change status 4-5 from task-statuses table).

I saw this thing on an otrs platform and it is quite ok for a simple user like ours.

Is there any way that we can personalise the flyspray in this way?

If yes, please give us an elaborate answer with what I should do for this to work.

Thanks in advance.

3207.06.201617.02.2019 Task Description

Moving task to another project seems to require fields updated to target project options. This operation is not possible on the task category field and possibly others. Attempting to submit changes gives error:

“Oh, there are some incompatible properties set that must be resolved before moving this task to a different project.”

However, you cannot select a new value (from the target list) for the properties in question.

If a task creator requested closure, and someone (developer) closes the task explicitly, the PM request cannot be later ‘accepted’ and the PM request remains in the queue.

Workaround - Deny request and queue item is removed OK.

It looks like the PM request button invoked details.close which returns early if task is already closed.

1720Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowBetter Access Control Lists and User / Group ManagementPlanned
0%
1.1 devel301.05.201220.03.2015 Task Description

We need to have a better way to do user rights, group rights and manage users.

Here is what I am thinking, global administration can go to a ACL tab. Click on it and you have a simple way to add a new user / group. Two tabs on top are User Rights and Group Rights. These are global so each project will inherit the global setting for user / group.

Clicking on User Rights tab will lists users with a table to grant user rights. Specific to that user, it would be the same for group rights tab.

You can also search by a user name. This will make things faster to find that specific user.
