2142Backend/CoreBug ReportLowPost-authenticate redirect does not make use of baseurl...Unconfirmed
0%
28.06.201601.08.2016 Task Description

I run flyspray behind a reverse proxy with the front end url being https and with the actual back end server not being on a standard port and not using https.

Setting force_baseurl seems to sort most areas with flyspray’s url generation using that instead of picking up from $_SERVER, however post-authentication redirection does not do that it just processes redirect_to as is (which in my case means it picks up the protocol, name and port for the back end server rather than what’s set in force_baseurl).

./themes/CleanFS/templates/loginbox.tpl puts out $_SERVER[’REQUEST_URI‘] into a hidden redirect_to input field - on my setup on the front page that’s e.g. “/” or for a ticket url it would be “/index.php?do=details&task_id=999” so no protocol or hostname.

scripts/authenticate.php picks up that redirect_to value and just passes it to Flyspray::Redirect, which in turn calls FlySpray::absoluteURI on what it’s passed, and FlySpray::absoluteURI doesn’t use $baseurl to qualify the url.

Not sure what the best fix is - my suggestion would be that Redirect detects urls that aren’t fully qualified and adds the $baseurl on to the front of them, rather than calling absoluteURI (absoluteURI is used to set $baseurl if force_baseurl is unset, so that’s not appropriate to modify). Alternatively scripts/authenticate.php could check redirect_to and add $baseurl if needed.

06.08.201606.08.2016 Task Description

Problem: By replacing just the project_id of the closed task it is possible the task then has invalid field values within the target project.

Possible scenarios:

  1. Ignore invalid values within the target project
    • Pro: Easy to do, an immidiatly revert back to the old project would “heal” the task properties.
    • Contra: may effect accuracy and reliability of other parts like searching, listing, statistic calculations
  2. Silent change task field values to valid field values of the target project if necessary
    • Pro: relative easy to do
    • Contra: a bit loss of information, little side effects
  3. allow user to modify the fields that must be changed so that every field of the task has valid values within the target project
    • Pro: accuracy
    • Contra: a bit loss of information(fallback to default values) if there are no similiar field values selectable within the project
  4. allow user to modify the fields, fields or field select values that do not exists in target project will be automatically created.
    • Pro: accuracy
    • Contra: target project may be cluttered with too many fields/field values

2.0118.07.201507.08.2016 Task Description

Currently only a small portion of adjustements on a task is available in the “edit task” view.

To add or modify stuff in the current tab sections (comments, related tasks, notifications, effort tracking,..)
a user must go from edit task to view task page.

This not optimal for work flow.

To solve this quite much changes are needed. Because currently they are different http requests each with its own checks and request anwsers.

07.08.201608.08.2016 Task Description

If someone with ‘edit comment’-permission wants to edit a comment, the edit comment form is shown on an extra page.

This is not optimal, because the editor cannot see task details or the other comments while modifying the comment.

Possible Solutions

  • with javascript is enabled: Stay on the ‘task detail’-page, just the comment changes from a ‘view’ layout to ‘edit’ layout, similiar to the quickedit-feature (like in FS1.0).
  • when javascript is disabled: The ‘edit comment’-page shows task details (check permissions) and other comments too, but maybe a bit narrow, so ‘visible focus’ is on editing the comment.

422.04.201616.08.2016 Task Description

Edit by peterdd: renamed task summary

Affected versions: at least Flyspray 0.9.9(.7/*?) up to Flyspray 1.0 RC1

Original report: Title ‘Problem regarding 0.9.7 (1.0) to 1.0 RC-1 update’

I tried to update BT from modified version (database in original state) 0.9.7 to 1.0 RC-1 but I got strange error.

PHP is 5.6.

I try to use:
Precompiled with 3rd party libs for PHP5.6

and was doing as was written on upgrade procedure.

Strange is that “D:\SShopBT\includes\class.flyspray.php” there are errors regarding writtable path... Because the path is correct and all other Joomla and Wordpress web sites are working correctly..

After upgrade web site do not work att all. Login not working - just get error. So I must reverse (use backup) database and files.

Server is Windows Server and IIS (Internet Information Services)..

Complete error was (also seen in screenshot):

1673Backend/CoreBug ReportHighOnly white screen after upgrade to 1.0 - reasonsConfirmed

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.

When viewing a project via the tasklist, there are a series of checkboxes available. If a user in a group with “modify own tasks” checks a box on a ticket - no matter who actually owns it - they are given a list of options to change it with.

This should not happen. The checkboxes should only be available from the tasklist if the user can actually edit the tickets they’d be next to.

26.08.201626.08.2016 Task Description

The user preferences and the add new user screens both allow you to set the timezone offset of the user, however, we are only provided with whole hour offsets from GMT. This makes it impossible to select our timezone here in India, which is GMT+5:30 - IST(Indian Standard Time - Asia/Kolkata as per TZ Zoneinfo). In addition, there are also timezones in the GMT+x:45, which wouild also require to be handled. Note, this is totally independent of DST Changes, since some of the countries use DST(Like in Australia) and others do not(Like India).

Here is a link with more details of the same - http://www.timeanddate.com/time/time-zones-interesting.html

I will be trying to identify and fix the codebase to resolve this, and will hopefully have a patch to submit soon.

Hello,

I was wondering if there is a way to make the task more visible if it wasn’t completed due to the date that was selected by a user - let’s say a yellowish background in tasklist, just like the ones from custom css based on severity, but that will take color if the task has the due date passed.

After completing the Greek translation I have a series of issues I want to report concerning mainly (but not limited to) the Greek languange.

I was thinking of opening a separate task for each one of them (note that they are all ultra low severity/priority) and adding them as sub-tasks to this one (or maybe as dependencies - or both).

I also request a Translations > Greek sub-category. I really have a lot of issues.

1124.10.201625.10.2016 Task Description

The symbol “;” in Greek is the question mark. So a list of semicolon-separated values looks like a series of questions in Greek. (looks like this: “cat? dog? rabbit?” ;-))

I suggest replacing semicolons with commas as list separators.

In email lists space is good choice too.

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.

I use Flyspray as a closed system with all projects set to private. I use it as a main means of communication with my clients. In such a case it would be a good idea for visitors to see a home screen (preferably a blank/splash screen with login option only) and definitely not the All tasks title or project names ( FS#2302 ) or taskid search.
