Default and convert report dynamic variables to pulldowns

Description

This plugin applies to all reports that use dynamic variables. The plugin does two things for dynamic variables whose (uppercase) name exactly matches a built-in or custom (lowercase) select field name:

  • Dynamic variables are set to default values if unset
  • The text fields for dynamic variables are converted to pulldown menus

JavaScript is required for the second feature above.

Configuration

  1. Install the plugin (after downloading and unzipping):
    cd dynamicvariablesplugin/0.11
    sudo python setup.py bdist_egg
    sudo cp dist/TracDynamicVariables*.egg /your/trac/location/plugins/
    

See TracPlugins for more installation details and options. You'll likely need to restart Trac's web server after installation.

  1. Enable the plugin:
    [components]
    dynvars.* = enabled
    

You can alternatively use the Trac Web Admin GUI to enable any or all rules.

  1. Create/modify reports so that the name used for dynamic variables exactly match the name of the select field that it corresponds to. For example, a report for a specific milestone that also queries for a custom queue select field could be specified like this:
    SELECT p.value AS __color__,
       t.id AS ticket, summary, component, severity, reporter,
       t.time AS created,
       changetime AS _changetime, t.description AS _description
      FROM ticket t
      LEFT OUTER JOIN milestone m ON t.milestone=m.name
      LEFT JOIN enum p ON p.name = t.severity AND p.type = 'severity'
      LEFT OUTER JOIN ticket_custom q ON q.ticket = t.id and q.name = 'queue'
      WHERE t.status <> 'closed' AND q.value = '$QUEUE'
        AND milestone= '$MILESTONE'
      ORDER BY m.due ASC, p.value, severity, t.time
