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.

#13054 duplicate Preference page does not check email for external links while post submission does Gray Wolf <wolf+"https:@…>

Trac can be configured (it seems) to check posts (in this case comment to existing bug) for external links and fail the submission if they are found.

However, it seems to also check email to be CC'ed for the external links. However, it does that only on submission, not on setting the email itself in preferences which seems inconsistent (and requires one to go back to change the email despite already setting it).

#13053 worksforme Dynamic addition of users in trac labraham@…


We have locally implemented a trac system but we are facing some issues while dynamically updating the user list. Whenever a new user logs into the system using the active directory credentials and creates a ticket, the user does not get added to the trac system dynamically. We need to add this user manually every time.

For example:

  1. User1 logs into the system and creates a ticket
  2. User2 updates the ticket and tries to reassign back the ticket to User1 (This does not work)

We have drop down list of all users to whom the ticket can be assigned but this newly logged in user is not present in the list. However when we manually add the user, it works(then the user is present in the same drop down list).

Please let us know if there is an option available to dynamically add the users in this list provided that they login to the system at least once. If not, then do inform us if there is an enhancement planned for this issue or if we are missing any configuration from our side.

Regards, Lijo Abraham.

#13052 fixed No extracted strings from report_view.html Jun Omae Jun Omae

report_view.html has several _('...') to translate the string, but messages.pot has no strings from the template file.
