Changing the kind of status of a ticket

Hello, please, is there any way to change the default status ('new', 'fixed', etc) or add a personalized status ? I am editing Trac for a portuguese language,and will be very useful for me to translate the status of the tickets. Thank you for the attention.

I don't know if there are any open tickets for implementing this in trac-admin or the Trac front-end, but there is a fairly simple way of doing it manually. It does require re-creating your Trac instances, however, although you could always edit an existing one with a SQLite client.

Edit the db_default.py file in your Trac install (e.g. your Python libraries folder → site-packages → trac → db_default.py). Near the top of this file is a fairly obviously laid out set of tuples which corresponds to the database schema; you'll see a section for the ticket statuses. Just edit to your heart's content (making sure to keep the indexes in order), and the next time you create a new Trac instance, it will reflect the changes you made.

I've done this on my system and it works fine.

Please do not edit the built-in "status" values. Currently Trac is not designed to support custom statuses, and it will cause Trac to function incorrectly if you change these values. Ticket #869 for creating custom workflows would help make this possible.

The "resolution" field is less critical and it may be possible to change these values, though this is still not recommended since there are still a few places that this may cause minor problems.
