First of all, thanks for this great tool, very user friendly.
I'm informing you as requested ("This should never happend, please inform Flyspray Developers" :)) because I'm getting this error message:

[Completely unexpected exception: Connection could not be established with host [php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known #0]
This should never happend, please inform Flyspray Developers]

I set up the SMTP configuration (SSL) with information provided.

Enclosed in PHPinfo configuration, if it helps.

209.09.201504.04.2016 Task Description

Currently, if there are no public project, the anonymous users gets a blank page not very useful. It will be a good idea to have a global configuration parameter to display some customizable-page or maybe the login form instead.

Here I will put some sql examples for the current developers to have a base for testings:

Starting with a default installation with its 1 example project and 1 example task:

I hope we can put all this into valuable phpunit tests for automatic testing with travis-ci.

Still TODO, do not use:
After fresh Flyspray install, add some more projects:

INSERT INTO flyspray_projects (project_title,project_is_active,others_view,anon_open) VALUES('Inactive Project', 0, 1, 1);

INSERT INTO flyspray_projects (project_title,project_is_active,others_view,anon_open) VALUES('Deleted Project', 1, 1, 1);
DELETE FROM flyspray_projects WHERE project_title LIKE 'Deleted Project'; -- delete to have an id gap
INSERT INTO flyspray_projects (project_title,project_is_active,others_view,anon_open) VALUES('Active Project NO Others View', 1, 0, 0);
-- There should now be 4 projects with ids (1,2,3,5).

INSERT INTO flyspray_groups (group_name,project_id,manage_project,view_tasks,open_new_tasks,modify_own_tasks,view_own_tasks,view_groups_tasks) VALUES('Project3 Manager', 3, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 );

INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(2,2);
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(3,3);
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(3,8);
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(4,4);
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(4,9);
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(4,10);
-- And lets fill the Database with 10 different configured task to simulate different cases:
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(1,1,1,0); -- id2 in first project
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(2,1,1,0); -- id3 in inactive project

INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(5,1,1,9); -- id10
-- And now lets fill the database with many task referencing the 10 base tasks (10k or more rows) by repeating the following until enough (grows exponential x**2 !
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks (project_id,task_type,item_status, supertask_id, item_summary) SELECT 3,1,1,FLOOR(RAND()*11),RAND() FROM flyspray_tasks;

These Examples can be used for finding bottle necks or problems on huge installations.

2104Backend/CoreBug ReportLowfiltering by one user on tasks with multiple assignees ...New
26.02.201626.02.2016 Task Description

If you have a tasklist with tasks that have multiple assignees in a task and you search just by one of the assignees, the resulting tasklist shows only this user in the assignees column.

Expected: all assignees of the tasks are shown.

Convert all the JS to using one library. Seems there is scattered JS scripts all over and we need to pick one solution that could be long term and has plenty of features for improving FS.

I vote for JQuery w/ Bootstrap which has some nice JS effects using JQuery.

2094EmailBug ReportHighAfter Upgrade All Users Receive Notifications for All T...Unconfirmed
4106.01.201613.01.2016 Task Description

I upgraded from 0.9.9 to 1.0-beta2 a few hours ago. I received an error about oauth during the upgrade (didn’t think to take a screenshot). In any case, the upgrade otherwise seemed to go smoothly. When I subsequently closed a few tasks people who weren’t assigned to receive notifications for those tasks, even old consultants whose account I had disabled years ago, received the email notification. I also received lots of bounced emails from accounts whose email addresses were no longer existant.

Has anyone else experienced this? I’ve gone into the database and null’d out the email addresses of old accounts to prevent further spam. Not only did it notify everyone who had an account (active or disabled) but it put their email address in the To: field for all to see.

2036Backend/CoreBug ReportVery Lowsession timeoutNew
2121.08.201512.01.2016 Task Description

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, 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..

My version of PHP still shows deprecation warnings with flyspray.

Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /var/www/ on line 353

Have all mysql.connect instances been removed? The connect will be removed from PHP soon and will cause problems.

2.0222.06.201312.11.2015 Task Description

Hi,I would like to see a enhancement, where you can submit/edit and assign it to multiple components, as it needs work from multiple sides.

For example: A user asks for a new object to be visualized. This includes work of the GUI designers and altering internal core structures. For internal management, I would like to label this for both teams.

2081User InterfaceBug ReportLowUI for adding comment while editing task doesn't use HT...Confirmed
429.10.201506.11.2015 Task Description

While editing an existing task, there’s a “+” button you can click to add a comment as part of the edit. Unfortunately this is just a plaintext box instead of the HTML editor used everywhere else, so it’s impossible to get proper line/paragraph breaks if a comment is entered with this UI.

This problem makes it necessary to edit a task and add a comment as two separate steps, whereas in it was possible to do them together in one step.

Note that this is the case with syntax_plugin=”none”. I don’t know if it’s also a problem when using other values for that setting.

1809User InterfaceFeature RequestLow Searching closed tasks by Reason for closingMaybe

how can I search tasks by "Reason for closing"? There is an option for searching for status but I do not want search by tasks' status but by reason for closing it. Is it possible to do it?

2085Text RenderingInformationMediumEnabling Color Coding options in CKEDITORUnconfirmed
130.10.201530.10.2015 Task Description


So I figured out that there are no color coding options (to set text color and background color) for text in the CKEDITOR. I did some changes to CKEDITOR to add those, however, once I submit the text, it does not retain the changes.

Is there a particular reason why these are not enabled in the first place?

I am thinking it would be good add these, so that we can make the important text pop-out to the users.

2013User InterfaceFeature RequestLowpersonal task list column selection and positioningNew
2.0120.07.201506.10.2015 Task Description

Currently the appearence of the task list table is configured system wide for all project view and project wide for project task list views.

Even more fancy and for power users would be if the user can set his own project column list view preferences for projects.

While the project columns for the task list are configured by "visible_columns"
we could use the project wide "visible_fields" as allowed columns the user may configure as his personal preference. If the user doesn't configure his own list, the project default list is used. The user should have the option to reset to project default. (e.g. empty personal "visible_fields" )

In this case the description for setting "visible_fields" on the project management configuration page must be adapted too.

Probably a new table required something like:

CREATE TABLE {user_projects} (
user_id int,
columns varchar(255) DEFAULT '',


CREATE TABLE {user_projects} (
user_id int,
columns varchar(32) DEFAULT NULL,
