0%
22.11.200818.04.2009 Task Description

In version 0.9.9.5.1 (unfortunately I couldn't select this version in the dropdown list on the left), reminders can only be created and edited by Admins and Project Managers. I recommend to give Assignees the permission to create reminders for themselves. To minimize any programming impact, his may be done as part of the "edit own tasks" permission.

This topic has been reported by Engie as part of Bug #713 for version 0.9.8 as well: "Also it would be useful if a user could create reminder for himself." Although that bug is already closed ("fixed in devel"), this part is not yet solved in the current version.

1237Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumAllow Multiple Owners Per CategoryPlanned
0%
2.04709.04.200710.08.2015 Task Description

Currently, only one owner can be applied per category (at least, that's what the tooltip implies). The ability to add more than one user, a user group, or a mix of the two to a category would be ideal.

Often times, more than one programmer will work on and maintain a feature that cannot be divided into subcategories with the various programmers dispersed accordingly. In such cases, setting all such programmers as owners of the category is beneficial in that they will all receive notifications.

Also, having a parent category's owner receive alerts if no owners are specified for a sub-category benefits from this ability. I may have a "User Interface" group that has all of my UI developers in it; assigning the group to the "User Interface" root category means all relevant developers find out about a new issue that was not directed elsewhere.

One potential conflict does arise with another Flyspray feature. If "Auto-assign a task to the category owner" is enabled, care must be taken to assign no users or the first user to the task; personally, I would prefer no one being assigned and seeing the wording changed to "Auto-assign a task to sole category owners". Worst case scenario would be another option asking if no one or the first user would be assigned to a task in that instance; if a group is specified, the first user in the group would be chosen.

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.

407Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumPlugin systemConfirmed
0%
2.0261404.12.200417.01.2013 Task Description

Everything is currently hard-coded. Create a plugin system that allows a module to be simply "dropped into" a plugins/ directory, enabled in the options, and have the plugin just work.

Possibilities might include alternative methods of notification, perhaps a documentation subsystem, or even simple things like voting for tasks.

The user should NOT have to edit existing Flyspray source code to make a plugin work.

0%
02.05.202002.05.2020 Task Description

When a tasklist contains the duedate column and the user sorts by duedate ascending, the tasks that do not have a duedate set should not be listed first. Instead they should be listed after the tasks with duedates.

This way a user can see the task with the earliest duedate first instead of seeing a bunch of probably not so important tasks without duedates set.

My company maybe changes to a MS SQL Server backed ERP.

Well, currently just an idea.

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

On the Flyspray homepage, no informations about https://github.com/flyspray/flyspray

A lot of people think that the project is dead.

In the same time, can you change the https://github.com/Flyspray to https://github.com/flyspray ?

No lost, you can try it already works but it is not the default.

https://github.com/organizations/Flyspray/settings/profile → “Rename organization” and replace Flyspray → flyspray.

402.02.201716.02.2017 Task Description
  • Flyspray 1.0 includes 1 default theme CleanFS. That decision was made to reduce maintainance effort and the old blue theme was dropped. Also the CleanFS contains UI-logic implemented in HTML/CSS and tries to be usable even for the people who turned off javascript in their web browsers for security reasons. (and reduces spam on many other websites too without an adblocker)
  • Current Flyspray source and the theme CleanFS provides several methods to customize the layout without touching the .tpl files. These are:
    1. custom_*.css files that extend or overwrite properties of CleanFS/theme.css
    2. 2 fields in admin area where to put code
      ?do=admin&area=prefs#lookandfeel

      For instance a corporate footer menu or something like that.

Advantages of CleanFS instead running your own

  • Theme is maintained with Flyspray source. Detected security issues related with themes are fixed with Flyspray releases.
  • Added features or capabilities are implemented for the default theme.

‘Subtheme’ can be a compromise: Theme CleanFS is always uptodate in sync with Flyspray. Subthemer only needs to check changes required for own subtheme .tpl files.

I do not want complete stop people from writing their whole new template, it allows new ideas implemented or alternative usability. For them, it is probably better to create a Github project for that theme.

This is just raw info from me and can be discussed. Something should be finally written on https://www.flyspray.org in the documentation area.

11.03.201511.03.2015 Task Description

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.

105.05.202005.05.2020 Task Description

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.

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

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)
