#8314 new enhancement

Dynamic Default Values

In the config file, we have options to provide default values for multiple fields. It appears that these can only be string literals though.

Is it possible, or easy to implement, a dynamic default value.

More specific:

The way I have permissions set-up, there are several groups. Each user belongs to one of these groups, and has no other permissions set.

I want this group to be the default value for a field, so that we can later sort them by what group/company these tickets originated from.

Somehow related to #4374 and #4549. Though in this case, I'd rather see something like a custom Property and reimplementation of render_selector (see FieldRefactoring#Proposal).

Well I've hacked together a plug-in to implement this specific request, but a more general (and elegant) solution would be nice for the future.

I'm a little unclear about the request, but I believe that th:TracTicketChainedFieldsPlugin implements the desired functionality.

I think I looked for a solution for this problem for at least 4 hours now and I cannot find any trac-hack nor anything else how to realise this functionality. TracTicketChainedPlugin doesnt have the functionality to have default field values based on username or group or permission. Please … this feature is needed badly.

@anonymous: Could you provide me with this plugin of yours? I hope its compatible to 0.11.
