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

Download the zipped source, check out using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


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.

 bla:Test Account:bla@localhost.localdomain

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.
