#4674 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Keep Task schedule on trac server and update it from there

Reported by: javierurien@… Owned by: osimons
Priority: normal Component: XmlRpcPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11

Description (last modified by stp)

I am working with your plugin for mylyn and I find that it would really be usefull to coordinate a team if I could just assign a schedule to a task and this information gets propagated to the trac server and then to the individual users.

Regards

Not quite sure what problem you are trying to solve, and the XmlRpcPlugin won't ever solve problems that are not solveable using standard Trac features and interfaces.

If by 'schedule' you mean milestones, then the plugin has support for that already.

If your 'schedule' is some custom ticket information, then use a custom field to store the information. Custom fields editing should also be supported by the plugin already.

If 'schedule' is some custom task plugin providing own database model++, then make/update the plugin to provide xmlrpc interfaces to its own data. The available xmlrpc methods can easily be extended by other plugins.

Either provide further details about your actual request, or I'll be closing this ticket.

Replying to osimons:

I think it could be resolved using Trac

If by 'schedule' you mean milestones, then the plugin has support for that already.

No I mean the Mylyn schedule property you can configure to the tasks.

If your 'schedule' is some custom ticket information, then use a custom field to store the information. Custom fields editing should also be supported by the plugin already.

It could be stored in a custom field, but later the plugin should interpret it and set the appropriate schedule on the Mylyn side.

If 'schedule' is some custom task plugin providing own database model++, then make/update the plugin to provide xmlrpc interfaces to its own data. The available xmlrpc methods can easily be extended by other plugins.

Either provide further details about your actual request, or I'll be closing this ticket.

I'll try, for example, from my office I open a Task and schedule it (a Mylyn property) for Friday, the plugin writes this annotation to the ticked. From home I synchronize with the task repository and the XmlRpcPlugin reads that the ticket has been scheduled and sets that date as the schedule (on the Mylyn side) for the Task.

Let me know if you need more clarifications, english is not my mother language and I may not be as clear as I think I am B)

I think it would be best if this feature was raised against Mylyn since the XmlRpcPlugin provides all necessary means to share scheduling information (e.g. through custom fields). Please feel free to add your requirements to this bug which discusses a related request:
