     448As long as [wiki:TestManagerForTracPlugin#LinkingaTickettoaTestCase tickets have been opened from the context of a test case in a plan], by means of the appropriate "Open a ticket on this test case" button, this chart shows the trend in tickets associated with all test plans or a specific plan, displaying the number of total, active (i.e. not closed) and closed tickets.

     457=== Configuration ===
     458
     459'''Note:''' By default, the charts use the [http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/charts YUI library] available online at Yahoo!, so you will need internet connection from your client machines to be able to display this charts.
     460
     461Alternatively, in case you don't have internet connection, you can download the YUI library, put it somewhere on the Trac server machine where the web server can access it, and refer its location in the trac.ini as follows.
     462
     463Other options you can customize are the default period of time the charts will display, in terms of historical depth and scale.
     464
     465{{{
     466[testmanager]
     467yui_base_url = <URL or path to the root of your YUI library>
     468default_days_back = <number of days back from today>
     469default_interval = <number of days between samples>
     470}}}
     471
     472For example:
     473
     474{{{
     475[testmanager]
     476yui_base_url = http://yui.yahooapis.com/2.9.0
     477default_days_back = 14
     478default_interval = 1

    484 
    485 There are '''known issues on Trac 0.11 with MySQL and PosgreSQL''', caused by lack of Trac support to the "int64" database column type.
    486 If you plan to work with MySQL or PosgreSQL '''you will need to run Trac 0.12.'''
    487 
    488 Hint: The database user (MySQL or PosgreSQL) must have read access to the trac.ini!
     536Both '''Trac 0.11 and 0.12 are supported''', and also '''Python 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7'''.

     539
