1.1 devel727.02.201322.04.2015 Task Description

In global permissions there is 'View tasks'. This makes it so a user can view all tasks. Need a way instead that they can view only their own tasks, for example a permission called 'View own tasks'.

If 'View own tasks' is checked for a user, in the project list we should only show projects which contain tickets that that user is a part of. Within a given project we should then only show tickets that the user is a part of if they have that permission set.

So for example if 'View tasks' is set, show user all tasks. 'View tasks' is not set, but 'View own tasks' is set then show them only their own tasks and projects.

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.

Steps done to create the problem:
Visit https://bugs.flyspray.org/index.php?do=register in a private browser window (so you are logged out)

Put in an already taken username (e.g. Stefan or Stefan2)

Expected behavior:
Username gets red and a note appears that username already is taken

Experienced behavior:
Username gets green and registration of a new user proceeds with sending a notification mail with confirmation code.
After putting in the confirmation code in provided page, user gets presented a “username is already taken, choose another” (where?) message, and has to re-start registration process from beginning and hopefully this time choose a not taken name.

I tried to register a user test3, and in my flyspray Installation the adminstratior disabled the notifications.
So I could only select “None” as text next to “Notifications”. After I pressed the button “Send Code!”, I received the email with the confirmation code. I clicked on the link in the email, and on the appearing website I entered the confirmation code and password and pressed the button “Register this account”.

Then I got the next e-mail message.
This message begins with:

“You have registered at Flyspray. Your details are as follows:”

This e-mail ends with the sentences:

“You are receiving this message because you have requested it from the Flyspray bugtracking system. If you did not expect this message or don’t want to receive mails in future, you can change your notification settings at the URL shown above.”

But this is not true. I have not requested this email. I as user test3 cannot change the notification settings because the notifications are disabled by the administrator.

06.05.201906.05.2019 Task Description

RC9 running on CentOS LAMP stack

Steps done to create the problem:
Set up google as an oauth provider.
Have a user click “Sign in with Google” in the login box.
User connects their account with Flyspray.
Google redirects the user back to Flyspray
The return screen (on flyspray) asks for a username.

Expected behavior:
No warning about duplicate username should be shown on initial page load since no username was entered yet

Experienced behavior:
A warning about the username being already taken is shown.

It appears there is no logic for showing or hiding that warning in register.oauth.tpl

(It would be great if flyspray was able to just use the email as a username to make the UX even better/simpler.)

This is a parent task for all small helping or explaining tooltips that can be maybe added where approriate.

Many people don't like reading external documentations, which sometimes often is also not up to date with the current used version.

If you are doing something in Flyspray and you don't know exactly how it works or have to be done rigth and you must look at documentation, it breaks your workflow.

The best case is if its all perfect intuitive and you don't have to read any help texts. But in the case of more complex operations or things that do many things behind the scene a helping tooltip or explanation can give you a mental map and more trust into what the tool is doing.

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.

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):

2440Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowOption to disable tag featureNew

15.09.201715.09.2017 Task Description

There is a wish on the Flyspray mailing list:

Is there a way of hiding the TAGS input field from the Add New Task form?
Alan

If it is just hiding on that form, there are several options to achieve this (from simple to complex)

A) Hide by CSS

Add that rule to themes/CleanFS/theme.css CSS file:

#edit_tags{display:none;}

B) Hide by CSS (better)

Add a rule to a custom_*.css, for instance themes/CleanFS/custom_mytheme.css

#edit_tags{display:none;}

and choose custom_mytheme.css in your project settings.

D) Edit themes/CleanFS/templates/newtask.tpl directly

and remove the whole div-tag with id=”edit_tags” (all between ‘<div id=”edit_tags>”’ and its closing ‘</div>’ (not recommended)

E) Use a custom template

  1. Create a folder in themes/, for instances themes/mynotagtheme/
  2. Only copy themes/CleanFS/templates/newtask.tpl to themes/mynotagtheme/templates/newtask.tpl
  3. Make the changes to that newtask.tpl like in B) (custom theme not overwritten by Flyspray Updates if you keep or backup your themes/mynotagtheme/ folders, but requires review if something has changed within themes/CleanFS/templates/newtask.tpl between version updates)
  4. Choose your mynotagtheme as project theme. All other files fall back to default themes/CleanFS/

(not tested, but thats the way it should work with current Flyspray 1.0-rc5)

D) Nag or caress someone

to finish tag feature for Flyspray with options/permissions to turn it off per project or project group or something like that.

This would effect not only that newtask form but all places where that options should kick in (listing tags in tasklist, tasklist filters etc)

120.05.201625.05.2016 Task Description

There was a question on the mailing list:

I have a suggestion, even though I don´t know if it´s possible to do it. But if it is, it would be great!
In the comments list of a given task, is it possible that the comments appear from the newest one to the oldest ones, and not as it is now, with the new ones coming at the end of the list? This is because I deal with long comments list for a given task, and it is becoming difficult to reach the last one, that is, the newest comment, because the order in the comments is on the top, the older ones. If this could be altered it would be great. Kind regards
Ana ...

Quick anwsers:

  1. Users can use ‘End’-key and ‘Pos1’-key on their keyboard to scroll to bottom and top of page. (lame anwser I know)
  2. Another quick anwser is to just reverse the comments array in the appropriate template themes/CleanFS/templates/details.tabs.comments.tpl :

Replace

<?php foreach($comments as $comment): ?>

with

<?php
$comments_latestfirst=array_reverse($comments);
foreach($comments_latestfirst as $comment): ?>

But the real problem I think is that the details page (and others too..) is not optimized for todays wide screens (landscape views). Laptops have FullHD or higher but the Flyspray users still have to scroll to get an overview of a task.

And for narrows views too (mobile phones, tablet portrait view)

The attached screenshot shows moving the task details tabs beside their task description if the display width is over 1200 css pixel. (and the reversed comments too ;-) ). Done with pure css media query:

E.g. add to a custom stylesheet file custom_detailswidescreen.css in folder themes/CleanFS/ :

@media only screen and (min-width: 1200px) and (orientation: landscape) {
.details .tab.active{
        display:inline-block;
}
 
.details .tab{
width:44%;
padding-left:0px;
/*margin-top:60px;*/
box-sizing:border-box;
}
 
.details .commenttext pre {
overflow:auto;
}
.details .comment_container .comment {
width:auto;
margin-left:30px;
display:block;
}
.details .comment_avatar {
position:absolute;
}
.details #comments .fa.fa-user{
font-size:30px !important;
}
 
#submenu li a{margin-left:0;}
 
.details #submenu{
display:inline-block;
position:absolute;
padding:1em 0 0;
margin-top:26px;
}
 
.details #content{
display:inline-block;
box-sizing:border-box;
vertical-align:top;
width:55%;
}
 
/* just a temporary fix: should be redone in theme.css with class instead ids*/
#comments, #related, #notify, #remind, #effort, #history {margin-top:72px;}
 
}

(Has still some problems with current 1.0-rc1 when the project selector wraps. Also tab labels wrap if not enough width available and tab content do not adapt.)

What do you think? How should the details page look on different display sizes? How can it improve the workflow of the user?

peterdd1.0-rc1023.02.202012.04.2020 Task Description

For Flyspray installations with many users (several thousands) a pagination of the user list in the admin area is required.

2000 users no problem to display (aside the PHP max_input_vars limit which is only 1000 by default, so maybe not all checked checkboxes are handled.)

More users might send your mysql to long running blocking queries creating temp tables … bad!

(I killed them by watching show processlist; and kill id; on mysql console.)
