Assign-to as Drop-Down List not working

Reported by: bill.meyer@… Owned by: Jonas Borgström

Component: ticket system Version: devel
Severity: normal Keywords: drop-down

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

Not sure to understand which patches you're refering to.

I agree that making a username appears in the drop-down list is really frustrating, and this is something that needs to be improved. It got on my nerve the first time I tried ;-)

Anyway there are several operations you made that are not related to this issue. It would help if you specify which version of Trac you're using.

Keywords: drop-down added
Milestone: 0.11
Version: devel

Using Trac 0.11dev-r5661. Had so much trouble trying to get the Windows version on previous (stable?) releases - tried the latest - which seemed to work - installation was a *lot* easier compared to the previous versions on Windows… then I tried to do - you know - basic things. Like adding users and managing them via the WebAdmin interface. After struggling with the options until it started working, I decided to try and get the users on the drop down list….

So far the experience is that things don't just work. The instructions states a number of things, and after double checking, re-checking, redoing again and again… it still does not work.

Checked the session database…(Sqlite) Six users logged in incl adm Not apearing in the drop down list… Is there a way to manually populate the list? In what .py file cna I check for the code where the list gets populated?

Funny thing is - in the admin interface - when in the "component" area - the users does show up - but not in the ticket… In the ticket only the adm user is listed

I take the garbled comment as a vote for either #454 or #2914 ;-)

In this case, it would have probably been a better idea to add this information as an attachment anyway.
