Conditionally set ticket creation status

Description

This plugin is an evolution of the TicketCreationStatusPlugin, permitting conditioned setting of creation status, depending on arbitrary ticket field values, e.g. type.

Status can be chosen independantly for owned or unowned tickets.

Usage

Install the plugin using setuptools (how to). Activate the component in trac.ini like this:

[components]
ticketconditionalcreationstatus.* = enabled

Configuration is then written in a separate section, headed [ticketconditionalcreationstatus].

There is one fixed configuration variable, criteria, taking as value a list of ticket field names that you want to use as conditions.

For any of the criteria you can then write variables <fieldname>.owned or <fieldname>.unowned.

  • in the simplest form, such a variable takes the form <fieldcontent> -> <ticketstatus>
  • you can also give several such rules, like <content1> -> <status1>, <content2> -> <status2>
  • when you have several content values that should map to the same status, you can use <content1>|<content2> -> <status>

Example

The following example will make owned tickets of types task and task-dev start out as assigned, instead of new, and tickets of type plan start out as new_plan.

[ticketconditionalcreationstatus]
criteria = type
type.owned = task|task-dev -> assigned, plan -> new_plan
