Bugs/Feature Requests

Existing bugs and feature requests for SimpleTicketPlugin are here.

If you have any issues, create a new ticket.


  • #9995 is being implemented on a development fork.
  • Version 5.0 of this plugin is under development. The main new feature will be the ability to hide fields rather than dropping them #6648. After the release of 5.0, future work will be to add features to the DynamicFieldsPlugin in order to get equivalent functionality, if it does not already exist. A migration guide will be written to help with transitioning to the DynamicFieldsPlugin.
  • Version 4.0 of this plugin has been released.


Download the zipped source from here.


You can check out SimpleTicketPlugin from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


Add a section like this to your trac.ini to display only the specified fields in the ticket form.

fields = milestone, owner, component
show_only = true

Then give some users the TICKET_CREATE_SIMPLE permission. The TICKET_CREATE_SIMPLE permission has no effect on a user with the TRAC_ADMIN permission.
