#8612 closed enhancement (fixed)

Improve sorting of tickets in the "Child Tickets" area

Reported by: awmross Owned by: walnut
Priority: normal Component: ChildTicketsPlugin

Cc: Trac Release: 0.12


I have just created a ticket with a series of child tickets.

The child tickets are displayed in the "Child Tickets" area of the parent ticket, but in a seemingly random order. In my example, the tickets are displaying like this:


I am trying to create a series of tickets intended to be completed in a certain order. First do A, then B, then C etc. The current interface doesn't seem to provide a way to do this.

If the child tickets were displayed in the order they were created, this would work OK in most cases.

I would ask for:

  • Provide a way to change the order of sub tickets (sounds very difficult / impossible, but could be done)
  • OR (more realistically) Display the tickets in the order they were created. The ticket# should provide an easy way to do this.
  • OR allow sorting on different columns, like in the Query view.

I saw another similar ticket; #8496, which would solve this issue for me. I've created a separate ticket as that change looks a lot more ambitious, and it looks doubtful if it will be implemented; whereas this one should be a simple change.

I actually have sorting on the table as a 'todo' on my own list of things!!! It is a little more difficult than I had thought...!!! As a work around for you for the time being, I have made a change that should ensure tickets are displayed in order of creation (ie. by 'id').

I hadn't seen this as an issue, as my environment always seems to display them in this order (perhaps I just don't have enough tickets generated in my test env??)

I've made the change to both the 0.11 and the 0.12 versions of the plugin, please see [10008]. I'd be grateful if you could test and give feedback.
