Problem: https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/pull/552

The button ‘My assigned tasks’ should search only by userid, not in username or realname with the LIKE ‘%...%’ operator.

Currently the button is using the same as doing an advanced search filling the ‘Assigned To’ input field. (currently ‘dev’ param) But that search param searches in userid, username and realname.

Edit: Implemented simpler solution: if param is digitsonly, then search by userid, otherwise by username and realname if that param exists.

So, there would be great option if we can set permission to users to see and post only in specific opened projects in bug tracker.

Idea is, that user has all right to all projects, but in some cases we want that user can see only projects which is allowed and also to publish new tasks to only allowed projects.

In that case tasks overiew is locked and user must be logged in to see opened tasks.

When I tried to install a instance of flyspray that is a release, I am greeted with a screen that says that I am trying to install a development version of flyspray. Due to me using shared hosting, I am unable to run any composer commands.

My version of flyspray was downloaded from flyspray.org, so why would this be happening? Thanks

1.1 devel220.03.201522.03.2015 Task Description

They are currently two separate mechanisms. Shouldn't be so. Events happen always, notifications when someone should be or have chosen to be notified about those events.

Besides, the current code is just a total mess that should be fixed/rewritten anyway, and we unfortunately also overlooked during the development phase 2 things: one new table, users_emails, and the fact that the user is now allowed to give several email addresses separated by a semicolon.

2589User InterfaceBug ReportLowTime zone in user settings is confusingUnconfirmed
0%
228.12.201928.12.2019 Task Description

Hello,

When registering and when later editing users settings it’s possible to specify “Time zone” but the way it’s implemented is confusing. What I see is a drop-down list with GMT[+-]:digit: and this is an odd way to set the timezone for multiple reasons:

1. “GMT” is a word without universally accepted and defined meaning these days, see https://www.ucolick.org/~sla/leapsecs/timescales.html#GMT ;

2. Often time zone specification needs to include the rules when (if ever) to apply DST and what abbreviation is to be used in different cases. See TZ description on https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/basedefs/V1_chap08.html#tag_08_03 .

Taking these two points into account I can’t see how to meaningfully use this feature.

TIA for looking into it.

2536Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumstore session in Flyspray databaseNew
0%
221.01.201915.03.2019 Task Description

Currently the sessions are stored by the webservers default settings.

Having this sessions under control by Flyspray by storing it in the database has following advantages:

  1. Allows handling of all sessions of a user by Flyspray.
  2. Providing a session management for each user. The user can see on which devices he is currently logged in and could also force a logout on selective devices.
  3. A forced logoff of all or some user sessions is easy implementable for admins.
  4. Statistics about how many users and who is logged in. (user status: hide always, online, offline, do not disturb, ..)
  5. Could make onpage-notifications easier to implement.
  6. .. ?

Disadvantages:

  1. A potential unknown security bug in Flyspray that could lead to reading a session db table could leak informations like who is currently online/active and make further attacks more focused or makes session takeover easier.
  2. .. ?
2114TranslationsTODOMediumStandardize the priority meaning across flyspray transl...New
0%
207.04.201626.03.2018 Task Description

Standardize the priority meaning across flyspray translations.

Idea:

0 - priority unset (database field default value)

1 - defer (or very low priority, often results the task is defered, see “Eisenhower principle”)
2 - low
3 - normal
4 - high
5 - very high

6 - flash (house burns, catastrophic event, website down, “boss” decision)

Some other software (other task planers/ email programs) use a 1-5 step priority. So an export feature to other software may merge priority 6 to priority 5 for such software.

In 2012 meaning was changed only in english translation.

Before normal was priority 2 in a 1-6 range, after it is priority 4 in a 1-6 range.
It should be IMHO 3 in that 1-6 range.

2223GreekBug ReportVery LowSome strings need splitting or replacementUnconfirmed
0%
2124.10.201625.10.2016 Task Description

There is a conflict in meaning in some words. In English past tense (”he closed the task”) and past participle (”List of closed tasks”) is the same word. But in Greek they are two different words (past tense of close: έκλεισε, past participle of close: κλεισμένος/κλεισμένη/κλεισμένο/.../etc → (actually, past participle has 3 genders (male/female/neutral) x 2 grammatical numbers (singular/plural) x 4 grammatical cases (nominative/genitive/accusative/vocative)) = 24 combinations but we’ll deal with this later if needed).

So, strings that now are used both as past tense and past participle, or used both for singular and plural, must split and use a different string when past tense and a different string when past participle or singular/plural.

These strings are:

varvaluenotes
openedOpened It is used in Event log as past tense (meaning: “User X opened Y task” or “Y task was opened by X” → so in Greek must either use past tense or past participle as singular because it’s one task) and it is also used in Overview as past participle (meaning: “List of opened tasks” → so in Greek must use plural). On the other hand, the same message in task’s History uses var taskopened=”Task opened”. Maybe it would be best if var taskopened was used in Event log too instead of var opened. It would solve my problem.

Got "wrong token" on creating a task whose form were open for a while in browser tab.

That means probably the session timed out on bugs.flyspray.org, so the anti csrf token doesn't existed anymore on the webserver.

It would'nt be a big problem if the browser backbutton works showing the ready written form again, but it was empty.

One solution would be temporarly storing it offline in the browser storages which are available with html5. But open for other simpler solutions..

If on the reports page some get params aren't set, there are notice warnings on the report result page

like

index.php?do=reports&events[]=30

without start date,end date,result size

But it can be useful to have a bit shorter urls for sharing between authorized users instead the full params url.

Result page should use user default and project default settings fallbacks for the unset get params.

2535Backend/CoreFeature RequestLownew optional Flyspray setting: add new users automatica...New
0%
216.01.201921.01.2019 Task Description

When a Flyspray installation allows user self registration and has public but also more private projects, this feature could make the required configuration more clear:

In this case, keep the number of global user groups as low as possible and the global user group for basic or just registered users has only the ‘can login’ permission and nothing more.
Because that only would be useless for new registered users, adding them also to a basic user group of a public project could be useful.

So my suggestion is:

A new optional global setting: Something like ‘default project user group’ (store 2 values: a project_id and a group_id). Validity of that setting must be checked during any user registration, so that project must exists now and at later time as also that project user group within that project. (’Checks’ of admin prefs)

So it would be like this for a new registered userA:

  1. userA is in a basic default global user group: only login permission to handle his account registration (login, logout, user preferences, password forgotten)
  2. userA is in project X default user group: some basic permissions you want allow for every (new) registered user in project X
  3. project Y: all ‘allow anyone ...’-settings are unchecked, userA not in any user group of project Y

The setting is probably best put below the ‘Default global group for new users’ setting in the global admin prefs tab #userregistration as

Either: A dropdown list with all public projects with an existing user group and dependend on the selection the available basic project groups are loaded by ajax as a select list too.

Or: Only one dropdown list that contains a list of public projects with possible project user groups. Would not require extra ajax calls and is maybe enough because we could exclude project groups that have project manager permission or such configuration nobody would allow new registered users.

no default project user group
public projectA - simple user groupA1
public projectA - simple user groupA2
public projectB - simple user groupB
public projectC - simple user groupC

This idea could be enhanced further (put the new user to multiple public projects when he registers or let user choose from public allowed projects during registration process), but lets start simple.
