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.

Problem: https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/pull/552

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.

Edit: Implemented simpler solution: if param is digitsonly, then search by userid, otherwise by username and realname if that param exists.

1.0207.11.201518.11.2016 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.

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.

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?

1.0516.03.201512.10.2015 Task Description

Due to the needed implementation of an anti csrf system into Flyspray 1.0,
this are a side effect issues we need to address:

Due the required replacement of action links to form buttons:

  • The user cannot just see anymore the target url of the action by hovering over the link. We can compensate that in the simpliest case by using the title-tag as additional info to the user. Trust not full reestabilished that way, but better than nothing and user has fear to click a form button.

Javascriptless CSS3-toggles:

  • Some clickable labels don’t show pointer icon when :hover. CSS issue, easy fix.

index.php calls scripts/roadmap.php at line 200:

if (!defined('NO_DO')) {
    require_once(BASEDIR . "/scripts/$do.php");

and:

in scripts/roadmap.php, lines 11-13 redirect to base url:

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)

1.0207.03.201520.03.2015 Task Description

If you save forms, it can happen that something is changes on the page. ^^

But if you render parts of the answer page before the form action is handled and database changes are made,
the answer page shows old information. Only on an additional request you see the current data.

The wrong way to solve this is making a redirect. Saw this in some other software and it was source of problems.

1.0129.10.201715.07.2018 Task Description

Hello,

I recently upgraded a very old version of flyspray, the avatars (and gravatar) are enabled, my profile includes an image which looks correctly (I had a problem with the transparency btw, so I used then a JPG version). But the users that doesn’t has avatar shows up like a broken image.

Example: http://bugs.elivecd.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=262&tasks=&due=33&status%5B0%5D=&order=dateopened&sort=asc&order2=lastedit&sort2=asc

Maybe when there’s no avatar for the users would be needed to show a generic image?

Thank you

1.0523.08.201517.04.2019 Task Description
  • Use github releases for the release? peterdd: Yes, currently only source releases without 3rd party vendors.

The Flyspray 1.0alpha1 .zip file release unzips directly to the current directory.

.zip files from github unzip to it’s own directory (flyspray-master.zip unzips to flyspray-master/ ). This is a bit safer, because you cannot accidently mess your directory structure with it.

  • The release should contain the binary fontawesome files instead of linking to the external CDN. Removes one dependency/singlepointoffailure. How this can be configured for automation? included in Flyspray source now. :-)
  • document how a release is exactly created. (consistency, reliability, automation, knowledge sharing for maintainers see below :-) )
  • Get in contact with os distributions, that could add Flyspray releases to their repositories (*BSD, Linux distributions, ..) This repositories could add the dependencies like ADODB within the packages (.rpm, .deb,..)
  • Get in contact with web hosting providers who provide integreated 1-click installs of software for their web hossting customers.
  • Get in contact with container builders (docker, ..)

Steps how to do a Flyspray release (since Flyspray 1.0 RC)

  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-rc1
  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 satisfied with layout
  4. Run buildscripts for different php versions (see comments at FS#2040)
  5. Upload the created .zip and .tgz files to https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/releases
  6. Upload the created .zip and .tgz files to https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/tree/master/packed stored since 1.0-rc2 only on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/releases to avoid redundancy
  7. Test the created blobs on different servers too.
  8. Edit the https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/blob/master/_docs/download.md and link the source and packaged .zip and .tgz files
  9. 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
  10. Send an email to the Flyspray mailing list
  11. 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-rc to 1.0-rc1 if you are releasing Flyspray 1.0 RC1. Must be the exact version you set in includes/class.flyspray.php .

Maybe we can use this sequence as template on bugs.flyspray.org for releases? :-)

the links in the list of users of that group are

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.

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.
