TicketQuery Wiki Macro

The TicketQuery macro lets you display ticket information anywhere that accepts WikiFormatting. The query language used by the [[TicketQuery]] macro is described in the TracQuery page.



Wiki macro listing tickets that match certain criteria.

This macro accepts a comma-separated list of keyed parameters, in the form "key=value".

If the key is the name of a field, the value must use the syntax of a filter specifier as defined in TracQuery#QueryLanguage. Note that this is not the same as the simplified URL syntax used for query: links starting with a ? character. Commas (,) can be included in field values by escaping them with a backslash (\).

Groups of field constraints to be OR-ed together can be separated by a literal or argument.

In addition to filters, several other named parameters can be used to control how the results are presented. All of them are optional.

The format parameter determines how the list of tickets is presented:

  • list — the default presentation is to list the ticket ID next to the summary, with each ticket on a separate line.
  • compact — the tickets are presented as a comma-separated list of ticket IDs.
  • count — only the count of matching tickets is displayed
  • rawcount — only the count of matching tickets is displayed, not even with a link to the corresponding query (since 1.1.1)
  • table — a view similar to the custom query view (but without the controls)
  • progress — a view similar to the milestone progress bars

The max parameter can be used to limit the number of tickets shown (defaults to 0, i.e. no maximum).

The order parameter sets the field used for ordering tickets (defaults to id).

The desc parameter indicates whether the order of the tickets should be reversed (defaults to false).

The group parameter sets the field used for grouping tickets (defaults to not being set).

The groupdesc parameter indicates whether the natural display order of the groups should be reversed (defaults to false).

The verbose parameter can be set to a true value in order to get the description for the listed tickets. For table format only. deprecated in favor of the rows parameter

The rows parameter can be used to specify which field(s) should be viewed as a row, e.g. rows=description|summary

The col parameter can be used to specify which fields should be viewed as columns. For table format only.

For compatibility with Trac 0.10, if there's a last positional parameter given to the macro, it will be used to specify the format. Also, using "&" as a field separator still works (except for order) but is deprecated.

#13445 cantfix SyntaxError: invalid syntax ( class HTTPException(TracBaseError, metaclass = ABCMeta): Tomasz Brzezina <tomasz@…>

I try to install 1.5.3 (I give up with 1.4 on bullseye).

Installed all needed packages and version 1.5.3:

pip install https://download.edgewall.org/trac/Trac-1.5.3-py3-none-any.whl

all needed packages installed with venv at /var/lib/trac/env

Apache2 uses wsgi:

WSGIScriptAlias /trac /var/lib/trac/apache/trac.wsgi
WSGIDaemonProcess trac python-path=/var/lib/trac:/var/lib/trac/env/lib/python3.9/site-packages

After apache2 restart accessing trac gives error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/var/lib/trac/apache/trac.wsgi", line 13, in <module>
import trac.web.main
File "/var/lib/trac/env/lib/python3.9/site-packages/trac/web/__init__.py", line 14, in <module>
from trac.web.api import *
File "/var/lib/trac/env/lib/python3.9/site-packages/trac/web/api.py", line 195
class HTTPException(TracBaseError, metaclass=ABCMeta):
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I can't see what's wrong.

#13443 cantfix Installation 1.4.3 at Debian 10 Tomasz Brzezina <tomasz@…>

After some debian update I lost access to Trac (Python2.7⇒Python3 migration I suppose). So created virtual environment:

virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python2.7 env

And finally installation is succesful! (Hope this help somebody)

But… Stil can't run it by wsgi apache2:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/lib/trac/apache/trac.wsgi", line 13, in <module>
    import trac.web.main
  File "/var/lib/trac/env/lib/python2.7/site-packages/trac/web/__init__.py", line 19, in <module>
    from trac.web.api import *
  File "/var/lib/trac/env/lib/python2.7/site-packages/trac/web/api.py", line 18, in <module>
    from BaseHTTPServer import BaseHTTPRequestHandler

I tried to install pip install http but still the same problem

my wsgi file:

import sys
sys.stdout = sys.stderr

import os

os.environ['TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR'] = '/var/lib/trac'
os.environ['PYTHON_EGG_CACHE'] = '/var/lib/trac/eggs'

#import trac.db.postgres_backend
#trac.db.postgres_backend.PostgreSQLConnection.poolable = False

import trac.web.main

application = trac.web.main.dispatch_request

I understand, that it is installation problem, but previously installation guide leads to success, but now - stucked. I can't use 1.5.3, because I need some plugins which are not available in 1.5 yet…

#13441 cantfix There is often problem to turn off the plugin anonymous

Eg. after restart screen with app by fgci I can't turn off plugin by plugin manager as admin, must do this by trac.ini only

Error: Unable to check for upgrade of tracusermanager.api.EnvironmentFixKnownUsers:
TypeError: environment_needs_upgrade() takes exactly 2 arguments (1 given)
  • many not updated plugins doing this type problems
