Flyspray - The bug killer!

12.03.201512.03.2015 Task Description

We have severity field.
We have priority field.
We have estimated effort field.

But we don't have a fíeld to see how hard a task is to solve. Something like in doom 3d shooter a face from normal/easy to angry/bloody/very hard.

Imaging you have some people in a company, some base educated, some high educated, some are experts in their field, some do repeating easy tasks.

By adding the ability to set a 'doom level' on tasks this can complete the view over a project in addition to severity,priority,effort.

2559Backend/CoreBug ReportLowa duplicate close accepted even when missing comment/ r...New

peterdd29.07.201929.07.2019 Task Description

Closing a task with selected close reason duplicate should warn when there is no comment or FS # id is given in the close comment text field.

The task is closed as duplicate without any further notice. The information to which task it is duplicate or a description (if the problem is logged/handled outside Flyspray) is lost.

Possible solutions

Frontend hints

  • variant F1 (soft): When duplicate as close reason is selected, a placeholder attribute in the close comment text field could be shown/updated. (maybe as ‘css only’ possible)
  • variant F2 (harder): Deny sending the form if duplicate selected, but comment text field is empty. and shows warning info. (javascript required, nojs browsers still send form.)
  • variant F3 (hard): Deny sending the form if duplicate selected and no task id detected in comment text field. and shows warning info. (javascript required)

Backend deny

  • variant B1 (soft): When request wants close a task with duplicate reason and (cleaned) comment string is empty, deny closing the task and give feedback to user why it was denied.
  • variant B2 (hard): It requires detecting a task id in the comment field and the first detected task id is taken for referencing as ‘is duplicate of’. Limitation of this is that the duplicate could be also a ticket or something of a complete other system.
2568DocumentationBug ReportMedium[MANUAL] a missing image in "Understanding Permissions:...Unconfirmed

101.09.201902.09.2019 Task Description

In the page http://www.flyspray.org/manual/group_permissions/ , it is written

Shown is an image of the permissions page for the Flyspray project’s Contributors group

but there is no image in there.

I can think of two ways of dealing with that I guess:

  1. add an image
  2. remove the sentence

What do you think?

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.

1977Backend/CoreBug ReportLowWeird URL after closing task with referenceUnconfirmed

115.03.201518.03.2015 Task Description

On Mac OS Safari:

I just closed a task and wrote the following into the comment for closing:

"See also F.S.#.14" (of course without the points). When I then click the link in the comment box (below the task details) I'm redirected to:
"http:/flyspray.stefan-herz%0Aog.tld/index.php?do=details&task_id=%0A14". No matter if #14 is closed or not.
It worked with Firefox.

Any suggestions?

2327Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowvisibility-option for private tasksUnconfirmed
0%
315.01.201717.01.2017 Task Description

We have some private Tasks in our FS-bugtracker to hide them from normal reporters. But we also have some external beta-testers in a betatesters-group and they should be able to see (and check) the private tasks without giving them a project manager status. So it would be good, if there is a switch in the group option to give specific groups the right to see private tasks.

216.03.201720.03.2017 Task Description

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.

531.10.201803.11.2018 Task Description

I use a personal email server with a self-signed certificate (i’m not sure if it’s possible to use my https certificate for that? i don’t even kind of understand what all I did to get this email server setup, and I don’t really want to mess with it... especially since my https certificate comes from Let’s Encrypt... so i might have to muck with the email server every 60 days ... not sure?) ..

anyway, when I try to connect to it with Flyspray, I get above the Test Email button, “Completely unexpected exception: Unable to connect with TLS encryption
This should never happend, please inform Flyspray Developers”

Most systems have a way to override and accept an invalid cert, but I’m not seeing anything obvious about doing that with Flyspray. Does a function for this already exist, or do we need a way to do that? (alternatively, I would accept help in properly configuring my email lol)

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.

2210User InterfaceInformationLowTasklist color for due dateUnconfirmed

612.10.201618.10.2016 Task Description

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.

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.
