Assign-to as Drop-Down List not working
|Reported by:||Owned by:||Jonas Borgström|
According to the documentation:
Assign-to as Drop-Down List ¶ If the list of possible ticket owners is finite, you can change the assign-to ticket field from a text input to a drop-down list. This is done by setting the restrict_owner option of the [ticket] section in trac.ini to “true”. In that case, Trac will use the list of all users who have logged in and set their email address to populate the drop-down field.
To appear in the dropdown list, a user needs be registered with the project, i.e. a user session should exist in the database. Such an entry is automatically created in the database the first time the user submits a change in the project, for example when editing the user's details in the Settings page. Also, the user must have TICKET_MODIFY permissions.
In reality - I tested this - added two users (after struggling with the absolutely horrendous user administration), it does not populate the Assign to field. Edited the ini file, restarted the web server, created new user, logged in as new user, modified user info, logged in and out, restarted the server, repeated the process with a number of users… just not working - only gives the admin user…
My opinion is that it seems asif trac is falling apart from all the patches
