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.
 2080 User InterfaceFeature RequestMedium Unfinished UI for task list secondary sort setting Closed

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.

100%
1.0341927.01.200702.03.2016 Task Description

A list what could/should be done for 1.0

  • language for email/jabber notification currently depends on sender(user who changes something), not the recipients preferences - needs loading translation everytime to the recipients prefered language changes in the sending loop. done.
  • Provide functionality similar to bugzilla 3.0 “whining” (Custom scheduled notifications) reminder (schedule.php) is working again . Setup a cronjob for that.
  • get rid of modify.inc.php (make do-modes pluggable)
  • database transactions
  • new templating engine (eval free)
  • user area (summed up notifications, own notes)
  • remove the usage of $_REQUEST and the Req class (only reduce)
  • add two checkboxes SSL and TLS to the SMTP configuration section in order to permit usage on servers that requires them (f.e gmail)
  • permit multiple flyspray installations with a single codebase.
  • Make threaded mail really work.
  • Localize the Installer/Upgrader
  • Upgrade to SwiftMailer v3 (when released for PHP4)
  • simplify task changes ( FS#1203 )? quick-edit is enough
  • link to dokuwiki syntax
  • replace FS prefix
  • lock password capability?
  • auto-close tasks...
  • restrict assignees (group permission → “show for assignees”, default 1)
  • last-edited-by column, others,  FS#1330  (redundancy table?)
  • for upgrading, to not make all fields project level?
  • remove all usage of split() and ereg_* functions, this include sending patches to external libraries.
  • Social networking authentification (Google, OpenID, Oauth, Facebook, Yahoo)

Things that will not be done in 1.0:

  • conversion scripts for most popular BTS - All of Flyspray data is stored in database. It should not be too hard to create a conversion script, at least from the Flyspray side. Do you need a conversion script to or from Flyspray? Tell us.
  • allow personal ordering of fields (FS 1.1 or later), see FS#2013
  • Add an option for SSL login - If you want a secure Flyspray, configure your webserver to only talk TLS/SSL, not unencrypted HTTP. Flyspray can help by hardening its source for TLS/SSL only sending, ask peterdd if it’s a requirement for you.

Things planned for 1.1:

  • Find no longer used functions in the code and remove them

Not planned yet:

  • Add support for both sqlite and mssql. But you can try your own experiments, we use adodb that supports a wide range of databases.

How to reproduce:

Expected behaviour:

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!

 2102 Backend/CoreBug ReportMedium strict ordering of tags required  Closed
100%
1.0219.02.201626.01.2019 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/modify.inc.php

Why?

The SQL for the tasklist uses currently GROUP_CONCAT (and a equivalent syntax for postgres) that groups by list_tag.list_position.
Well, we could just ‘group by’ the tag_id too, but with list_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.

Alternative

Don’t use group_concat() or similiar for list_tag.tag_name or list_tag.class. Instead load an indexed array once per http request and only when needed.

For instance as function within class.flyspray.inc.php:

        /**
         * load all tags into array
         *
         * compared to listTags of class project, this preloads all tags in flyspray database
         * ideally maximal called once per http request, then using the array index for getting info
         *
         * @return array
         */
        public static function getAllTags()
        {
                global $db;
                $at=array();
                $res = $db->query('SELECT tag_id, project_id, list_position, tag_name, class, show_in_list FROM {list_tag}');
                while ($t = $db->fetchRow($res)){
                        $at[$t['tag_id']]=array(
                                'project_id'=>$t['project_id'],
                                'list_position'=>$t['list_position'],
                                'tag_name'=>$t['tag_name'],
                                'class'=>$t['class'],
                                'show_in_list'=>$t['show_in_list']
                        );
                }
                return $at;
        }

in scripts/index.php in function tpl_draw_cell():

function tpl_draw_cell($task, $colname, $format = "<td class='%s'>%s</td>") {
  global $fs, $db, $proj, $page, $user, $alltags;

50%
1.0907.03.201511.11.2015 Task Description

This is taken from FS#1753:

The second reason being there is no way that I know of to automatically set a project usergroup to new members. I only have 1 project, but it seems the Global groups aren’t working (can still see tasks if “View Tasks” is unchecked) and I don’t know how to fix that.

And what I have to say - it is hard to tell if you are on the Flyspray admin settings area or on the admin settings of a project.

Cheapest way is adding some CSS to distinguish this for the user.

But there is in fact more to do to make it user friendly.

  • TODO: list configurations for project(task types, categories, ..) in Manage Project should also show the system wide list values as hint to avoid duplication.
  • TODO: project user groups overview should show system wide user group infos as info for project managers to avoid unnecessary complicated configuration settings.
  • TODO: visualize related permissions that can overrule eachother like ‘view_task’ overrules ‘view_own_tasks’ to avoid misconfigurations

.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.

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.

which points to a missing function "from_unixtime" in PostgreSQL and it is true, it's a mysql specific function.

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.

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.
