2439Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowClone a ProjectNew

15.09.201715.09.2017 Task Description

There is a request for cloning a project on Flyspray mailing list:

Would be a very welcome features to have Project Templates for repetitive workflow. Any idea if its in the pipeline?
Thanks

Well, not yet.

The question is, how exactly you want that project clone.

Do you want just a rough copy of the project table entry?
Thats quite easy and can even be done without programming or writing a line of SQL just by using PHPMyAdmin (or similiar Tools for PostgreSQL) and copy a row of the project table for example.
See yellow marked project table on the right of the attached dbschema screenshot.

The other extreme is copying every project depending list table entries to new ones.
This sure requires some programming, but not too hard to add this to Flyspray. (all yellow marked tables in the attached dbschema screenshot.

I attach a rough form mockup how could this could look like.

Possible solution

  1. add a new file scripts/ folder for instance copyproject.php (check admin permission)
  2. add a template file to themes/CleanFS/templates/copyproject.tpl
  3. Set a link to that clone form page somewhere, for example on the toplevel page of a project (see screenshot)
  4. Handle the adminuser (or add a clonepermission for that project manager usergroup) submitted form careful and savely either by includes/modify.inc.php (or like scripts/copyproject.php to keep it seperate from core)

The link to the clone form looks then ?project=123&do=copyproject

2214Backend/CoreInformationLowChanging status of task automaticallyUnconfirmed
0%
417.10.201606.11.2016 Task Description

Hello again,

I was wondering (again :-) ) if the following scenario is possible for this bug tracking solution:

Our company uses this bug tracker mainly for helpdesk issues. However, our main users (except IT department) don’t seem to easily understand how to change the status of a ticket, they aren’t interested in doing that also.

So I would like to know if there is a way that we can develop some automatisation in changing the status automatically after customer replies to a message.

Let’s see the following scenario:

  1. user A posts a new task
  2. user B assigns himself (or other) to that specific task - the status automatically is changed to Assigned
  3. user B replies to task by adding a comment - as a result of adding the new comment the task status should change automatically to Waiting for customer - without the need that user B to change the status
  4. user A checks the comment from user B and decides to comment back to him. After pressing the Add comment button, the status should change automatically to Waiting for assignee

If the task is needed to have another status, the users can change them manually, but the automated part should be the waiting for customer and assignee.

On a basic algorithm it shouldn’t be hard (if user is logged in and is task owner, then after comment, task detail - status changing to id 4-5 from task-statuses table on mysql; if user is logged in and assigned to task, after adding comment change status 4-5 from task-statuses table).

I saw this thing on an otrs platform and it is quite ok for a simple user like ours.

Is there any way that we can personalise the flyspray in this way?

If yes, please give us an elaborate answer with what I should do for this to work.

Thanks in advance.

2499User InterfaceBug ReportHighChange recaptcha from using file_get_contents to CurlUnconfirmed
0%
118.09.201802.11.2018 Task Description

The issue with many servers now and the reason that recaptcha does not work is because it requires servers to enable allow_url_fopen which is a huge security risk. That is why you get the warning message when you try to run recaptcha that file_get_contents failed to connect.

So the solution is to use Curl to do that job.

Here is the fixed file, excuse my mess i had not cleaned up my code yet... but recaptcha now works.

this file goes in the includes dir... you can clean up the file if you like again sorry about that.

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.

14.07.201614.07.2016 Task Description

If a task creator requested closure, and someone (developer) closes the task explicitly, the PM request cannot be later ‘accepted’ and the PM request remains in the queue.

Workaround - Deny request and queue item is removed OK.

It looks like the PM request button invoked details.close which returns early if task is already closed.

From the ‘Task Statuses’ menu, when in the global project, the ‘delete’ cases are grayed out, preventing me from deleting them.

This is a problem for me because I would like to only have project specific statuses and I would like to name one of those statuses ‘Assigned’.

For now, I got around it renaming the system wide ‘Assigned’ status.

The money sits in a pool, and then when someone claims that task and it is marked as completed by the admin, they get the bounty (less some commission that goes towards the project).

1720Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowBetter Access Control Lists and User / Group ManagementPlanned
0%
1.1 devel301.05.201220.03.2015 Task Description

We need to have a better way to do user rights, group rights and manage users.

Here is what I am thinking, global administration can go to a ACL tab. Click on it and you have a simple way to add a new user / group. Two tabs on top are User Rights and Group Rights. These are global so each project will inherit the global setting for user / group.

Clicking on User Rights tab will lists users with a table to grant user rights. Specific to that user, it would be the same for group rights tab.

You can also search by a user name. This will make things faster to find that specific user.

2459User InterfaceFeature RequestLowAttachments on/off and max size setting in Admin Toolbo...Unconfirmed
0%
116.02.201803.03.2018 Task Description

It would be great if the Admin Toolbox had an attachments section with an on/off switch, a max size setting, and it would print out all the reasons why it can’t set it to your desired value.

This would help in situations like  FS#2458 , it would be more clear if there is a setting to turn on/off attachments instead of turning them on and off by setting the rights if the attachments folder.

This way if the attachments setting is On, the GUI could also print an error “Attachments folder must be writable” when it detects that the writable attribute does not match the desired setting.

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.

231.03.201611.04.2016 Task Description

An assigned ticket can't be edited by a lower privileged user.

Steps to reproduce:

  • One Project, Two Users. User A is Admin, User B is Basic
  • A creates a Task.
  • A take ownership of the Task. (it’s important to do this AFTER saving the task. You cannot assign User A if you are A in this moment. Maybe another Bug...!?)
  • Now B is allowed to take ownershop too. B click now “Add me to assignees”.
  • Now B can edit the task.
  • If B click “save”, the task can’t be saved, because some fields haven’t the correct values (esp: state is now “unconfirmed”). Many error messages said, that unexpected values exist

Some weird moments:

  • Why can B edit a task? He have no rights to edit tasks...
  • If B are Basic and have “edit own Task”-Right too, this bug also exist.

118.09.201802.11.2018 Task Description

Hi, in order for us to push our name (rather than flyspray) on emails, notifications, and GUI we had to edit the language file to replace the text “flyspray” with our install site name. That way notifications come from our company name rather than flyspray.

It would be nice if you could take the site name variable and add it to the language files in all keys that face the public user and all notifications. This would not only prevent editing of the lang file but also make setup alot faster.

Thanks so much..
Dave

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.
