#2245 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Enable trac-admin to configure "user settings" (e.g. e-mail address)

My company is trying out trac for project management, but as a consulting company, we have many projects. Developers currently need to configure their user settings manually for each project, as far as I can tell. (We are running Trac 0.9b2.)

It would be nice if, for each new project, I could run a script to preconfigure everyone's e-mail address for ticket notifications.

Is there any way to do this now, even if it involves a script with a sql query/ bash script or something directly into the SQLLite DB ? It would be MOST helpful, as with 50 projects, and more adding all the time, we could really use this..

Thoughts anyone ?

I would absolutely like to see such a feature show up in the Admin panel - and/or in trac-admin. But in the meantime, I guess something as simple as:

$ sqlite3 trac/dir/db/trac.db
sqlite> INSERT INTO session_attribute (sid, authenticated, name, value) VALUES ('username', 1, 'name', 'User with Lastname');
sqlite> INSERT INTO session_attribute (sid, authenticated, name, value) VALUES ('username', 1, 'email', 'user@company.com');

would probably work. That's what I just did, and it appears to work. I'm not sure if it would/could mess up anything if the user has not already logged in though.

Or of course use any other library to connect to the database ;)

There is a UserManagerPlugin available that will meet your needs.

Resolution: duplicate
Status: newclosed

TracAdmin can configure user configuration like email since #1347.

session set <name|email|default_handler> <sid[:0|1]> <value>

    Set the name or email attribute of the given sid

    An sid suffix ':0' operates on an unauthenticated session with the given
    sid, and a suffix ':1' on an authenticated session (the default).
