Updated documentation for recent and forthcoming changes.

Autocomplete user fields (assigned to and CC) on tickets

Description

The AutocompleteUsersPlugin allows AJAX completion of users for the owner, reporter and CC fields on new and existing tickets. Currently, all the known users are autocompleted, though this could be restricted to those that have the ticket owner permission. A /subjects URL is served which presents the users and/or groups in a format suitable for the jQuery Autocompleter. The AutocompleteUsersPlugin should gracefully degrade when JavaScript is disabled. In addition to fields on new and existing tickets, the following fields are also autcompleted:

  • User and group fields on the admin Permissions page.
  • User field on the admin Components page (forthcoming).
  • Ticket custom fields (forthcoming).

Note: Email addresses shown by this plugin are handled accordingly to the setting trac.show_email_addresses and the permission EMAIL_VIEW. That is, if trac.show_email_addresses is set to false and the current user doesn't have the permission EMAIL_VIEW all mail address will be obfuscated as usual in Trac (i.e. email addresses will be displayed as donjaun@... rather than donjaun@example.com). In any other case the full email address is visible.
