2121Backend/CoreBug ReportMedium'my assigned tasks' uses like %?% search instead of use...Confirmed

1.0319.04.201603.02.2018 Task Description

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.

2134Backend/CoreBug ReportHighCannot assign a task to other projectPlanned
0%
3207.06.201617.02.2019 Task Description

Moving task to another project seems to require fields updated to target project options. This operation is not possible on the task category field and possibly others. Attempting to submit changes gives error:

“Oh, there are some incompatible properties set that must be resolved before moving this task to a different project.”

However, you cannot select a new value (from the target list) for the properties in question.

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.

304.11.201905.11.2019 Task Description

I have installed flyspray on an internal server and have problems with the renaming of internal links.

For example:
I want to put this link in the comment section.
\\192.168.200.5\Folder\example.docx

it shows the link correct,
but when you hover over the link it shows:
file://192.168.200.5/Folder/example.docx

And on clicking on it, of course I can´t access the file, because it´s trying to open an external link.
I dont want it to be renamed from ‘\’ to ‘/’.

Can somebody help me please.

I tryed to find it in the sourcecodes, but I have almost no experience in PHP.

Thank you!

peterdd1.0-rc10312.12.201918.02.2020 Task Description

PHP 7.4 is out now and a few things should be done to make Flyspray work well with it.
Nothing really breaks, but a view deprecation warnings should be fixed.

Flyspray source itself: Just a few new notices, most are yet fixed in the master branch.

Watching the PHP7.4 compatibility of dependencies defined by composer.json:

  • ADOdb/ADODb: 5.20.15 should be OK for Flyspray
  • swiftmailer/swiftmailer: We still use 5.* branch, so either do quickfix for a notice in a fork or upgrade/rewrite our integration to the 6.* branch.
  • ezyang/htmlpurifier: 4.12 OK
  • thephpleague/oauth2-client: unknown, we still use 0.13, last real source change was Nov 2018, to upgrade requires rewrite of integration into Flyspray and there is low demand for OAuth2.
  • dapphp/securimage: seems to be OK
  • jamiebicknell/sparkline: OK, but probably obsolete for us in future due
    • still annoying problems with our github/travis tests (problem of travis, not sparkline itself)
    • better solution (interactive hover infos, scales, screen size adaptive) by Flyspray source planned

2.02120.10.200917.01.2013 Task Description

I would love a option to allow anom users to write comments! Maybe with CAPCHA...
I allow anom users to report bugs, but when I have a question to this bug, or the reporter wants to make a additions, he has to register...

I tried hacking it in the core: In the class.user.php at the end of the get_perms method I added:
$this→perms[$proj_id]['add_comments'] = 1;

But I has nothing changed. The I removed the check if the user had the right to make a comment in the template file, now I have a comment field for everyone, but anom user get a error message saying, that they should enter a comment... I searched a lot in the core files, but I don´t find the point where the comment a written in the database... I would a great help if you could give at least a hint :)

Another thing i tried was changing the user contructor, that every user with a negative ID get the ID 2, witch is a special "anom" user. But then you could not log out, a the admin not in...

When editing a ticket to change things like User, Percent done, etc should be able to add a comment. When changing 100% → 70% for example, there is usually a comment that goes along with that (e.g., you didn't yet finish changing the background color)

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.

1960Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumforeign key relations between versions and tasksNew
0%
209.03.201513.08.2015 Task Description

It seem that when deleting a version entry in a project, that tasks that have this version assigned are still connected to this deleted version. For example FS#1222 (on 2015-03-09).

There are several options to solve such things:

  • Deny deletion of version as long as tasks assigned to this project version.
    • Either by doing a testing SQL query to check this case coded in PHP. Take care to keep this centralized, must also be respected by an eventually later added Flyspray API (XMLRPC or whatever).
    • add SQL foreign key constraints with ON DELETE RESTRICT
      • Pro: some business logic can be directly enforced by SQL.
      • Cons: higher requirements for hosting, if using mysql innodb tables must be available on the hosting
  • Move the tasks of this version to a default fallback version before deleting the version tag.
    • Either doing one transaction doing : 1. move the tasks to its fallback version, 2. delete the version
    • add SQL foreing key constraint with ON DELETE SET $fallbackversionid. Some pros & cons like on the the denying option.

The same for other assignments for tasks.

This issue is similiar to the massop issue: (https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/issues/130)

Well, it needs a cleanup, per example:

fixed now http://127.0.0.1/flyspray/task/3?project=1

That should be something like:

The actual one is actually half a rewrite and half a GET version

1981Backend/CoreTODOLowUnify event logging and notificationsConfirmed
0%
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.

2036Backend/CoreBug ReportVery Lowsession timeoutNew
0%
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 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..

2038Backend/CoreBug ReportLowJscalendar must be replaced with something elseNew
0%
223.08.201524.08.2015 Task Description

It's old. There has been a newer version 2.0. Even that one is not supported anymore, although some documents still remain available. The calendar component relies on its language translations files to be complete, or it breaks. Unfortunately, as I found out a few weeks ago, they are not, after switching the default language from english to my native one. Without having a good replacement for it, some of the translations for flyspray itself we've been getting lately are half-way unusable. Not for an ordinary user, but for anyone actually having to edit a task and its due date.

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.

2053Backend/CoreBug ReportLowambiguous user name display username / realnameNew
0%
1.1 devel217.09.201519.02.2020 Task Description

With the existence of now two peoples named “Peter” on bugs.flyspray.org (I - peterdd , and PeterTheOne)
there are several places where the full names are display instead of usernames and the user can’t know who is which “Peter” until he visits the users profile page.

Different solutions possible:

  • more profile image/gravatar usage where user names are shown, on mouseover link title attribute shows username and realname
  • display user name (username) instead of full name (realname)
  • display full name and username (where much space available and precision needed)

When adding the mention feature, the username will be probably the prefered setting as the username is unique but the realname not.

2089Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumadding same taskid as subtask or related task should be...New
50%
1.0207.11.201518.11.2016 Task Description

Both is a bit illogical, but both is currently possible! ;-)

1 ←- 1

So when setting the parent task id checked for creating loops is needed:

Loop with 2 tasks: 1 ←- 2 ←- 1

Loop with 3 tasks: 1 ←- 2 ←- 3 ←- 1
Loop with n tasks: 1 ←- ... ←- n < – 1

As I think there are currently no recursive reads that could lead to an endless loop, but should be kept in mind when someone wants to programm rendering a gantt chart.
E.g. by limiting the depth of subtasks for example.

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.

224.01.201724.01.2017 Task Description

The filename for the csv export is build based on project name and current date.

Due different handling of web browsers, the appropriate http header should send the filename in ascii and also provide them as utf-8 for web browsers who can handle that.

202.02.201712.03.2019 Task Description

You cannot select the fields for export to csv. This means that the commentfield (edit: you mean task description, right?) is always exported too. As this commentfield task description (?) could contain quotes, comma’s etc (like people inserting copies of emails on an issue) it corrupts the output file and the file cannot be read by excel.
