Psychokiller18881.0311.03.201511.02.2016 Task Description

.htaccess enables the mapping of nicer looking URLs to the default get parameter requests.

After all our changes for FS 1.0 we should review if it works well together when enabling .htaccess for the Rewrite Rules.

Maybe we have to update Rewrite Rules if there are added features that are good candidates for nicer urls.

"Replace your profile image by uploading a new one." or "Replace Avatar" ..

peterdd1.06101.11.201824.01.2019 Task Description

flyspray version: 1.0-rc6

How to reproduce:
Create a bug with tags (preferable with spaces)
Edit this bug
Change the spaces to ‘,’ Save

Expected behaviour:
Saves the tag with comma (even ; is the correct seperator).
It looks to me, that sanitisation of user input is missing here.

peterdd1.0113.12.201716.07.2018 Task Description

Well, as everybody can see at the moment, someone (who? @floele ?) updated the server hosting bugs.flyspray.org to PHP7.2.x and now some ‘deprecated’-warnings are shown.
Edit: For example not working Flyspray 1.0-rc6 and older with the brand new PHP7.2:

  • shows deprecated info on top
  • shows deprecated info at every comment
  • tells task in work by other user when you want to save a task.
  • Uploaded files aren’t downloaded correct (open a downloaded image with a hexeditor for example to see)
  • probably also scheduler (cronjob/schedule.php and sending emails effected)

  1. Edit includes/class.flyspray.php on github.com and set the correct version for the release there (remove the ' dev’ from the version string), commit as new branch e.g. 1.0-rc2
  2. Prepare a new release on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/releases , write a summary of changes since last release, choose the branch you created in the previous step, save as “draft”.
  3. “Release” the Flyspray source on github when satified with layout
  1. Run buildscripts for different php versions (see comments at FS#2040)
  2. Upload the created .zip and .tgz files to https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/releases
  3. Edit the https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/blob/master/_docs/download.md and link the source and packaged .zip and .tgz files
  4. Write a new article with a summary of highlights of changes since last release for the www.flyspray.org frontpage on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/tree/master/_posts/News
  5. Important: If all is nice and shiny: Update the version string on www.flyspray.org https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/blob/master/version.txt so admins of flyspray get informed a new Flyspray release is available now. For instance change from 1.0-rc1 to 1.0-rc4 if you are releasing Flyspray 1.0-rc4. Must be the exact version you set in includes/class.flyspray.php .
 2120 Backend/CoreBug ReportMedium anonymous task creation in restricted project not possi ...Closed

peterdd1.0219.04.201601.08.2016 Task Description

with this general project settings for everyone (users and anon):

Project is active ('project_is_active'): yes
Allow anyone to view tasks of this project ('others_view'): no
Allow anyone to view roadmap of this project: no 
Allow anonymous users to open tasks: yes
  1. Project is not selectable from Project drop down list with this settings, but should.
  2. The can_view_project permission is currently a calculated value, currently using ‘others_view’ permission for guests.
  3. Review where can_view_project() permission is used to limit access.
  1. Evaluate if “Allow anonymous users to open tasks”- perm make can_view_project()-permission true is sufficient.
  2. Or just use the “Allow anonymous users to open tasks”- perm at the relevant places. (I tend to prefer this, because of very limited places.)
  1. TODO: Maybe move
Allow anyone to view tasks of this project: no
Allow anyone to view roadmap of this project: no 
Allow anonymous users to open tasks: yes

from ‘Preferences’ project settings tab to the ‘User Groups’ project settings tab. So everything permission related is at one place.

I think the problem is within index.php, put in with commit https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/commit/651f09801a35533205971cf322483a0e52ad0a1d

A anon user cannot pass behind this code lines:

// make sure people are not attempting to manually fiddle with projects they are not allowed to play with
if (Req::has('project') && Req::val('project') != 0 && !$user->can_view_project(Req::val('project'))) {
    Flyspray::show_error( L('nopermission') );
    exit;
}

But before just removing removing the “exit;” here, needs too review if anon users cannot trigger bad actions.

peterdd1.0203.04.201609.04.2016 Task Description

Hi,

my customer set priority “very high”.

(note by peterdd: currently “very high” is priority6, but it was “flash” in older versions. See https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/commit/34fd39f86190983584c608c0d6754d5959338d3d )

After that i want to edit task to make some changes, i can’t save task because error of invalid priority. Other priorities works.

 2080 User InterfaceFeature RequestMedium Unfinished UI for task list secondary sort setting Closed
100%
peterdd1.0129.10.201512.11.2015 Task Description

In the Look and Feel settings for a project, there’s a grayed out setting that says:

[[defaultorderby2]] (not implemented yet)

For a proper release this should be either implemented or removed from the UI.

It would be great to have this implemented, because without it I can’t seem to get the same good sorting I had in 0.9.9.6. In that version I had tasks sorted by severity and then newest open date first, but in 1.0-beta2 if I sort by severity I now get oldest open date first.

peterdd1.0320.08.201527.10.2015 Task Description

I’m not sure this is a bug or this behavior is intended.

I have a user who belongs to a “basic” group but he’s a projects manager in one of the projects.

We have noticed he is not able to edit their own comments or tasks even though this feature is enabled in project managers group within this particular project.
I could only fix it by enabling these features in the global basic group, but I feel the project group setting should overwrite those from global groups.

Well, it sounds stupid, but testing also the stupiest things can show flaws..

Ok: If you are admin - even id 1 - you can change your own group from "Admin" to "Basic".

Imaging what happens after you saved the form. :-D

 1845 User InterfaceBug ReportLow Support for short user name Closed

peterdd1.0112.03.201307.03.2015 Task Description

Greetings!

It is kind of trivial, but if I create a user account whose user name and real name are both short (e.g. user name == "ao", real name == "Ao"), when I stop mouse at my name, the profile box cannot be displayed completely. If I scroll to the right, that box will then disappear.

Attached are images for illustration.

Thanks!

peterdd1.0105.03.201323.04.2015 Task Description

I searched but found nothing related, so pardon me if there is a duplicate.

When admin searches for event logs, choose "Created" or "Deleted" in "user" area, and in the result, click "Detailed information", a box will pop up. If the admin click on the box, I expect him to enter a page to edit the user's details. However, an error message ("This task does not exist") will pop up instead.

 2015 NotificationsBug ReportMedium notification if category was changed Closed

Jouni Ahto1.0122.07.201531.07.2015 Task Description

If the category of a task was changed, the receivers of notifications for this task
only get the category ids, but not the name of the category in their notification.

 1954 EmailTODOHigh Change "No HTML in E-Mails" Option  Closed
100%
Jouni Ahtopeterdd1.01607.03.201523.04.2015 Task Description

Emails should be sent in both formats within one Email, not either text or HTML.

It is the choice of the users email program if he sees the messages as html or plain text.

So in best case we can drop this option when implemented and make Flyspray a bit more easier to administer?

 1764 Backend/CoreBug ReportLow PostgreSQL: No activity graphs displayed Closed

Jouni Ahto1.0113.08.201222.04.2015 Task Description

Instead of a activity graph, some broken images are displayed. After minimal investigation I found following error:

Query {SELECT count(date(from_unixtime(event_date))) as val FROM "flyspray_history" h left join "flyspray_tasks" t on t.task_id = h.task_id WHERE t.project_id = ? AND date(from_unixtime(event_date)) = str_to_date(?, '%m/%d/%Y')} with params {4,08/12/2012} Failed! (FEHLER: Funktion from_unixtime(integer) existiert nicht LINE 1: SELECT count(date(from_unixtime(event_date))) as val ^ HINT: Keine Funktion stimmt mit dem angegebenen Namen und den Argumenttypen überein. Sie müssen möglicherweise ausdrückliche Typumwandlungen hinzufügen.)

which points to a missing function "from_unixtime" in PostgreSQL and it is true, it's a mysql specific function. One can build this function on PostgreSQL. stephe did it: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/flyspray/_VigAhVd-CU. If ever possible don't use these specific functions or this will break all database compatibilities with other than mysql

 1591 Backend/CoreBug ReportLow PostgreSQL Advanced Search is Case-Sensitive; MySQL is  ...Closed
100%
Jouni Ahto1.0203.08.200919.03.2015 Task Description

I apologize if this is a duplicate... I did search pretty hard for another filing.

Text searches are case-sensitive on PostgreSQL where they aren't on MySQL (I'm guessing MySQL is the desired behavior). When checking the code, it has to do with the use of the 'LIKE' keyword: it's case-insensitive on MySQL and case-sensitive on PostgreSQL.

I fixed it for my own uses by changing it to ILIKE instead (PostgreSQL-only), but a more generic approach would be more appropriate for Flyspray Proper. The Right Way To Fix This™ probably involves a change to ADOdb to allow for an abstraction of the LIKE keyword depending on the database in use. The Mostly-Right Way To Fix This would be to use something generic across MySQL and PostgreSQL like UPPER() or something to compare the data.

Jouni Ahto1.0514.11.200804.08.2015 Task Description

An existing Jabber configuration in the admin backend prevents the scheduler from sending mails, deleting the Jabber account data let it work again. Anyway, the normal messages in case of a task's changes are sent properly with or without the Jabber configuration.

Jordan MendlerPsychokiller18881.0204.06.201517.11.2015 Task Description

The loading graphic ajax_load.gif was removed with the classic theme bluey/
and not copied in the same step to the later default theme directory.

So every javascript call to showPreview() results in a 404 request for that ajax_load.gif.

Someone with permissions to upload files can readd this please? You find the ajax_load.gif in github versions before july 2014.

Spaces before or after a task search string gives too many results in the tasklist.

Example search strings:

Found this on bugs.archlinux.org, but also current 1.0-rc7 has this problem.

2491Backend/CoreBug ReportLowgroup member links if project manager but not adminNew

1.001.09.201801.09.2018 Task Description

When a user has project manager permissions, but not admin permissions, then on the ‘edit group’ pages like index.php?do=pm&area=editgroup&id=8
the links in the list of users of that group are

index.php?do=admin&area=users&user_id=12345

instead of linking to the users page

index.php?do=user&area=users&id=12345

and a redirect follows with Error #4: You don’t have administrative rights.

50%
1.0201.09.201810.09.2018 Task Description

I’ve set up an account with a username longer than 20 characters, but can’t reset the password because the
flyspray/index.php?do=lostpw
page username field has maxlength=”20” The maxlength for a new user registration seems to be 32 characters.

A related concern is that when setting up the default/admin user on first load of the system, I can use an email address as username (always my preference), but it’s actually not a valid username to create for others thereafter. Consider allowing ‘@’ character in usernames.

2453Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumvalidate category before storing a new taskNew
0%
1.014.12.201714.12.2017 Task Description

Currently the category_id is not checked if the value is legal for the project when a new task is created.

  • must be unsigned int
  • must be an active category_id of the project or global category.
  • setting a category_id must be allowed - see project settings.

If invalid category_id is sent, deny creating task and show error message and show filled form again.

If no category_id is sent (or empty string) and category select is enabled:

  • either choose a default category

or

  • implement feature request FS#2451 and show that user should select a category.
