Summarized mailing list discussion about RestrictTicketActionsPolicy.

Custom Permission Policies

Permission policies were introduced on the TracFineGrainedPermissions page. Many policies can be implemented with a short plugin. Some custom permission policy examples are given on this page.

Restrict a Workflow Action to the Ticket Owner

This permissions policy can be used to restrict a workflow action to the ticket's owner.

To install and activate the plugin:

  1. Create a single file plugin that implements IPermissionPolicy:

    from trac.core import *
    from trac.perm import IPermissionPolicy, IPermissionRequestor
    from trac.ticket.model import Ticket
    class RestrictTicketActionsPolicy(Component):
        """Provides a permission for restricting ticket actions to the
        ticket owner.
        implements(IPermissionPolicy, IPermissionRequestor)
        # IPermissionRequestor methods
        def get_permission_actions(self):
            return ['TICKET_CHANGE_STATE']
        # IPermissionPolicy methods
        def check_permission(self, action, username, resource, perm):
            if action == 'TICKET_CHANGE_STATE' \
                    and resource is not None \
                    and resource.realm == 'ticket' \
                    and resource.id is not None:
                ticket = Ticket(self.env, resource.id)
                return ticket['owner'] == username
            return None
  2. Edit the permission_policies option in the [trac] section of trac.ini, adding the component before the default permission policy:
    permission_policies = RestrictTicketActions, ...
  3. Require TICKET_CHANGE_STATE for one or more workflow actions. For example, the default workflow could be modified so that only the ticket owner can assign tickets:
    -reassign.permissions = TICKET_MODIFY
    +reassign.permissions = TICKET_CHANGE_STATE
  4. Grant the TICKET_CHANGE_STATE permission to your users.
