1673Backend/CoreBug ReportHighOnly white screen after upgrade to 1.0 - reasonsConfirmed
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.

4106.01.201613.01.2016 Task Description

I upgraded from 0.9.9 to 1.0-beta2 a few hours ago. I received an error about oauth during the upgrade (didn’t think to take a screenshot). In any case, the upgrade otherwise seemed to go smoothly. When I subsequently closed a few tasks people who weren’t assigned to receive notifications for those tasks, even old consultants whose account I had disabled years ago, received the email notification. I also received lots of bounced emails from accounts whose email addresses were no longer existant.

Has anyone else experienced this? I’ve gone into the database and null’d out the email addresses of old accounts to prevent further spam. Not only did it notify everyone who had an account (active or disabled) but it put their email address in the To: field for all to see.

1856Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumWrong timezonesResearching
1127.03.201306.03.2015 Task Description

when selecting timezone in user profile, it only offers offset based timezones. It should offer timezones like "Europe/Prague", instead, because in summer it is UTC+2 and in the winter UTC+1. Also UTC is the same as GMT.

Using offsets will cause invalid future and past times when crossing daylight saving or when something other changes.

Adding daylight checkbox is not enough and will cause additional troubles. Just use names and store them as ENUM in database, not offset. This problem is pretty complicated and the only solution is to use names and let libraries to solve it for you.

Thank you.

1.1 devel3112.04.201320.08.2015 Task Description

When some url to a bug is redirected to the login page, because the user does not have the right to see the bug without login, the user should be redirected after the login to the url he wanted to see.

Maybe redirect to /login/?next=/task/X and put the next-url in a hidden field in the login-form, so flyspray can redirect to the correct page after login.
Even preserving anchor-urls (#comment-YYYY) would be cool, but i guess this needs Javascript to work.

1960Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumforeign key relations between versions and tasksNew
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: (

1988Installer and UpgraderBug ReportMediumPassword Field for AdminUnconfirmed
302.04.201512.05.2015 Task Description

The installer requests a password for the admin account, and provides a default one.

Because this field is not type=”password”, the browser caches this data for any field named “admin_password”

This also applies to future installations of the software.

I have marked this as critical as this can pose a security hazard. A different implementation would be allowing entry of password, or in the case of wanting to provide a default one, have two password fields prepopulated, and a text one prepopulated so that it can be viewed by the end user.

It can't be found easy with

Because the preg_replace modifiers are added dynamic depending on the target programming language. At least in the version we have in flyspray.

2089Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumadding same taskid as subtask or related task should be...New
peterdd1.0207.11.201518.11.2016 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.

2098User InterfaceBug ReportMediumAttached image cannot be downloadedConfirmed
1.1 devel530.01.201610.01.2017 Task Description


- Attach an image to a task.
- It shows as a link in your task (cf. screenshot “Screenshot from 2016-01-29 18-34-31.png”).
- Click on the link.

Result: it opens a “popup” with the image displayed in it. If the image is big, the popup is just so huge the image is not visible without boring horizontal and vertical scrolling (see “Screenshot from 2016-01-30 15-07-26.png” which shows what I see when I click the image link on my task).
I can’t even right click to download from the menu since I see no “Save Image As” item. (see Screenshot-no-save-image-in-menu.png).

My workaround was that if I drag and drop the attachment link in the address bar, I finally get the expected image, which I can finally save as! This workaround was hard to find, and I expect most people will just get frustrated of being able to view an image attachment, yet not save it locally.

I proposes the following:
- a small “download” icon next to the image link in the task for direct download (without preview).
- a “download” link/icon on the top-left of the image display popup (to download while previewing).

And as a side feature (maybe I should make a separate report?), I suggest that by default the image display popup constrains the image to the screen size, with a “see real size” link, so that you don’t get the popup with huge scrolling when opening a big image on a smaller screen.

Note: of course this issue does not appear with non displayable attachment. If I have a zip or a document, it proposes me to download it directly.

2102Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumstrict ordering of tags required New
1.0119.02.201624.02.2016 Task Description

When saving the tag list at admin and project area, the ordering of the tags must be recalculated.

So it is not more legal to have a list ordering like (0,0,0,1,3,4,7)

That should be recalculated and stored as (1,2,3,4,5,6, 7) (or 0,1,2,3,4,5,6)
currently in file includes/

The SQL for the tasklist uses currently GROUP_CONCAT (and a equivalent syntax for postgres) that groups by tags.position.
Well, we could just ‘group by’ the too, but with position value we can show the most important tags first.

3 times, and that 3 result fields must be in the same order. (tag id, tag name, tag class field)

Also that sql-query part there needs a little modification, but first fix that strict ordering.

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.

2121Backend/CoreBug ReportMedium'my assigned tasks' uses like %?% search instead of use...Confirmed
1.0219.04.201620.03.2017 Task Description


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.

There are several solutions possible:

  • We do not use the dev-urlparam ?do=index&project=1&dev=123 that would list also assignees with username dude123 or dude123blabla. Instead use for instance ?do=index&project=1&mytasks or ?do=index&project=1&devid=123
  • ...

Needs some planning, thinking to keep it simple/solid.

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)..

2123Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumTaskList export is not a SYLK file (error message).Unconfirmed
326.04.201627.04.2016 Task Description

I tried the “Export tasklist” button and I get the following error when it tried to be opened with Excel.

“Flyspray_-_The_bug_killer!_2016-04-26-1.csv” is not a SYLK file”

The csv file is understood as a SYLK file because it starts with ‘ID’. It’s an Excel keyword that means
to Excel, “open it as a SYLK file”. but the it’s not a SYLK file, it’s just a csv file.

I created few files to let you understand it: (bad_SLYK.txt and correct_SYLK.txt), translated in csv files,
do the (bad_SYLK.csv and correct_SYLK.csv) files.

The csv content is different because Excel check the first column name: ID ( == SYLK).

With Flyspray export to csv (SYLK_file_should_be_CSV.png), you use the ID as a first column name. So, Excel
understand it as a SYLK file, and it’s not.

Could you please switch “ID, Category, ...” with “Category, ID,...” or rename ID as Id or iD ? or maybe just export
columns as defined in the user view. (not all columns).

I hope it would solve the problem (as a quick fix).

Hope it helps

2200User InterfaceBug ReportMediumIncomplete list of timezones available in the user pref...Unconfirmed
26.08.201626.08.2016 Task Description

The user preferences and the add new user screens both allow you to set the timezone offset of the user, however, we are only provided with whole hour offsets from GMT. This makes it impossible to select our timezone here in India, which is GMT+5:30 - IST(Indian Standard Time - Asia/Kolkata as per TZ Zoneinfo). In addition, there are also timezones in the GMT+x:45, which wouild also require to be handled. Note, this is totally independent of DST Changes, since some of the countries use DST(Like in Australia) and others do not(Like India).

Here is a link with more details of the same -

I will be trying to identify and fix the codebase to resolve this, and will hopefully have a patch to submit soon.

I setup the default page to “roadmap” for a project, logged out, and it’s not possible to access the base url anymore. I chased the bug throughoutt the code and it seems that:

2317User InterfaceBug ReportMediumDate format wrongConfirmed
1.1 devel122.11.201622.11.2016 Task Description

In some parts of the world (primarily the US), the date is viewed as Month/Day/Year. However, all options in the current rc4 build are listed as Day/Month/Year aside from one, which goes ShortWrittenMonth/Day#/Year#.

This is poor from a customer perspective, and can be highly confusing. I can change the date globally to a correct format in the database, but this doesn’t help much as every user can select their own date which has all incorrect formats.

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.
