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.

#13504 cantfix Intertrac doesn't work from sub-level wiki pages only from tickets and top-level wiki pages geert.linders@…

I have a server with several trac instances. If I add an Intertrac link to a ticket or top-level wiki page, it works fine. If I add the exact same link to a sub-level wiki page, it doesn't work. I am using Trac version 1.4.3.

The set-up in trac.ini is (this is common to all trac instances):

development.title = New Product Development project
development.url = ../../development
maintenance.title = Maintenance project
maintenance.url = ../../maintenance
sandbox.title = Sandbox project
sandbox.url = ../../sandbox
administration.title = Server Administration project
administration.url = ../../administration

My sites are accessed as: http://trac/development, http://trac/maintenance, http://trac/sandbox and http://trac/administration.

If I add link [[maintenance:ticket:29|29]] to a ticket, it takes me to this ticket in the other Trac instance.

If I add the exact same link to a top-level wiki page, it works fine as well.

A top-level wiki page is for instance http://trac/development/wiki/BuildSystem or http://trac/development/wiki/WikiStart.

If I add the exact same link to a sub-level wiki page, it doesn't work and I get error: No handler matched request to /maintenance/intertrac/ticket:29.

A sub-level wiki page is for instance http://trac/development/wiki/BuildSystem/Makefiles.

How can I make the Intertrac links work from all wiki pages?
