I need metrics for flyspray projects about a rest api. For example the count of issues for status, priority. I want use this values for my code analysis system http://www.sonarqube.org/ and other internal tools. It is possible to create a rest api with user authorization and only for metrics data?

0%
231.03.201611.04.2016 Task Description

An assigned ticket can't be edited by a lower privileged user.

Steps to reproduce:

  • One Project, Two Users. User A is Admin, User B is Basic
  • A creates a Task.
  • A take ownership of the Task. (it’s important to do this AFTER saving the task. You cannot assign User A if you are A in this moment. Maybe another Bug...!?)
  • Now B is allowed to take ownershop too. B click now “Add me to assignees”.
  • Now B can edit the task.
  • If B click “save”, the task can’t be saved, because some fields haven’t the correct values (esp: state is now “unconfirmed”). Many error messages said, that unexpected values exist

Some weird moments:

  • Why can B edit a task? He have no rights to edit tasks...
  • If B are Basic and have “edit own Task”-Right too, this bug also exist.

1487AuthenticationFeature RequestLowLDAP(Active Directory) AuthenticationPlanned

1.1 devel101121.05.200804.09.2019 Task Description

I have done a very quick bit of work to bring ldap (through active directory) authentication to flyspray for our implementation in the office. I hope it will be of use to others. There is a readme.txt inside talking through the process and the patch to apply. My plan is to expand on this and make it part of the setup process but this will take a bit longer.

407Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumPlugin systemConfirmed
0%
2.0261404.12.200417.01.2013 Task Description

Everything is currently hard-coded. Create a plugin system that allows a module to be simply "dropped into" a plugins/ directory, enabled in the options, and have the plugin just work.

Possibilities might include alternative methods of notification, perhaps a documentation subsystem, or even simple things like voting for tasks.

The user should NOT have to edit existing Flyspray source code to make a plugin work.

1237Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumAllow Multiple Owners Per CategoryPlanned
0%
2.04709.04.200710.08.2015 Task Description

Currently, only one owner can be applied per category (at least, that's what the tooltip implies). The ability to add more than one user, a user group, or a mix of the two to a category would be ideal.

Often times, more than one programmer will work on and maintain a feature that cannot be divided into subcategories with the various programmers dispersed accordingly. In such cases, setting all such programmers as owners of the category is beneficial in that they will all receive notifications.

Also, having a parent category's owner receive alerts if no owners are specified for a sub-category benefits from this ability. I may have a "User Interface" group that has all of my UI developers in it; assigning the group to the "User Interface" root category means all relevant developers find out about a new issue that was not directed elsewhere.

One potential conflict does arise with another Flyspray feature. If "Auto-assign a task to the category owner" is enabled, care must be taken to assign no users or the first user to the task; personally, I would prefer no one being assigned and seeing the wording changed to "Auto-assign a task to sole category owners". Worst case scenario would be another option asking if no one or the first user would be assigned to a task in that instance; if a group is specified, the first user in the group would be chosen.

1222Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumWorkflow engine / Role-based State Transition Rules Eng...Unconfirmed

11625.03.200705.05.2019 Task Description

I have been working with Eventum (http://www.mysql.org/downloads/other/eventum/) for quite sometime now and in contrast, I like Flyspray for its simplicity and practicality. But one thing I badly miss (and something that Eventum scores high) is a Workflow Engine. If not a sophisticated W.E., I (as an Admin / Manager) should be able define role-based state transition rules of the tasks reported in a particular project. For example, I should be able to implement the following scenario:

  1. For a “Developer”, the subsequent tasks from various states. Likewise for other roles
  2. “Developer” should not be able close out the bug reports. He/she can only flag them as implemented. The “Reporter” of the bugs or the “Manager” alone should be able to close out issues
  3. ..
  4. .. it will go on like that ;-)

This feature, in my opinion, is very crucial for corporate organizations to give a serious consideration to Flyspray.

1673Backend/CoreBug ReportHighOnly white screen after upgrade to 1.0 - reasonsConfirmed
10%
1.1 devel31412.01.201117.08.2016 Task Description

After I upgraded to version 1.0 (the upgrade was successful), flyspray only shows a white page (and the source in firefox shows, that the page is completely white).


Please help us finding the roots of these bugs!

Please report what you were exactly doing before this happend, report us your steps made, the used php version, used OS version, and such information.

We think most cases of that “white screen” are relying on the third party vendor libraries behavior we use.
When a library detects an error, sometimes they just call die() or exit; of php, but suppress error messages. So the script just stopped not giving any output to browser.

The dev versions from github use composer for installing the required libraries. We will package them on the final release together and make sure most cases of “white screen” are fixed.

1782Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowCustom fields on taskPlanned
0%
2.030327.11.201228.04.2016 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.

2.08317.01.201318.10.2016 Task Description

Need to be able to email back and forth to communicate with flyspray. Ideally flyspray can be CC'ed on an email or can replay to a notification which would add the body and/or attachments to the thread. This goes back to reworking the way people interact with and view tickets

1753Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumUsergroup Restriction: Only View SummaryConfirmed
0%
1.1 devel4220.06.201227.06.2016 Task Description

I was really impressed with Flyspray and about to use it as our bug tracker, but then I discovered quite a big problem. You can't restrict users from seeing full task details.

I would really love the ability to let them only see the summary. My reason being is that I'm needing a bug tracker for my game, and bugs reported can be easily abused, and will be abused, if people can just read bug reports and see how to replicate them.

The reason I don't like just unchecking the "View Tasks" option, is because they wont be able to see if there is already a task about the bug, so we would just get flooded with duplicate reports on the same bugs.

Hey Flyspray Team,

a nice feature would be to see which user commented recently on a task.
This could be a simple new column in the tasks list view.

1856Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumWrong timezonesResearching
0%
1227.03.201306.03.2015 Task Description

Hello,
when selecting timezone in user profile, it only offers offset based timezones. It should offer timezones like "Europe/Prague", instead, because in summer it is UTC+2 and in the winter UTC+1. Also UTC is the same as GMT.

Using offsets will cause invalid future and past times when crossing daylight saving or when something other changes.

Adding daylight checkbox is not enough and will cause additional troubles. Just use names and store them as ENUM in database, not offset. This problem is pretty complicated and the only solution is to use names and let libraries to solve it for you.

Thank you.

2134Backend/CoreBug ReportHighCannot assign a task to other projectPlanned
0%
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.

I searched a lot in the core files, but I don´t find the point where the comment a written in the database... I would a great help if you could give at least a hint :)

30%
1.1 devel4112.04.201309.07.2018 Task Description

When some url to a bug is redirected to the login page, because the user does not have the right to see the bug without login, the user should be redirected after the login to the url he wanted to see.

Maybe redirect to /login/?next=/task/X and put the next-url in a hidden field in the login-form, so flyspray can redirect to the correct page after login.
Even preserving anchor-urls (#comment-YYYY) would be cool, but i guess this needs Javascript to work.
