Notice Manager Plugin
The Notice Manager was developed to help local project admins to create information needed before sending notice e-mails.
Up till now, it was not possible to change the e-mail address of users or to create information for users without adding the user to a credentials file, e.g. when you use LDAP to manage Trac permissions.
The Notice Manager allows to retrieve all information needed either from an LDAP directory - in this case, the methods provided by the LDAP plugin - or a local text file.
Please note, this plugin was developed for internal use. Feel free to add, change or delete as this plugin is our first experience with programming for python/trac.
One more note: This plugin requires the LdapPlugin to be installed - even if you only want the "local text file" variant. It doesn't install without.
Download and Source
Go to the Admin page, General, E-Mail. This will show a list of accounts, which are either:
- already registered, or
- mentioned in the Trac-permissions
On the right side, you can fill in information, either by entering them manually (Add/Change Notice Info), by getting them from an LDAP directory (Information gathering ... from LDAP) or by retrieving the information from a local file (Information gathering ... local file).
The file follows a simple syntax, on one line, list the id, the name and the e-mail address, divided by the ':' sign, e.g.
Please note: In order to use LDAP groups for assigning tickets, the LDAP group prefix has to be changed from "@" to "*". If you dont change the prefix, you will not be able to send e-mail to the LDAP group when assigning ticket responsibilities.
