#12583 closed defect (fixed)

Hide rule does not work when the user group has only the TICKET_VIEW permission

Reported by:… Owned by: Ryan J Ollos
Priority: normal Component: DynamicFieldsPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: permissions
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Do not know exactly if it is a defect, but "show_if_group" rule does not work as expected.

Users in groups with the TICKET_VIEW permission can still view all the fields. Only users in groups with the TICKET_MODIFY permission have fields hidden (correctly based on the rule).

my installation: trac 0.11rc1 with no other plugin than DynamicFieldsPlugin.

btw: thank you for this plugin.

I'll check the behavior with Trac 1.0, however Trac 0.11.x is no longer supported. Trac 0.11rc1 was released 8 years ago and I highly advise against running such an old version of Trac.

Confirmed. The issue is that the rules are applied to input elements, and the ticket properties are hidden as a side-effect of applying the rules to input elements. When a user has TICKET_VIEW but not TICKET_MODIFY there will be no input elements and the rules will be skipped.

Should be fixed with the next commit, but the issue in #12575 is still causing problems during autopreview.

Thanks again for the report. Note that you'll need to upgrade to Trac 0.12 or later, preferably to Trac 1.0.9 (the latest stable release), and install DynamicFieldsPlugin from dynamicfieldsplugin/trunk.

Thank you rjollos for your time. I upgraded trac to 1.0.9 and now I'm testing the plugin. It works fine, but I think there is a little oversight at


if (input.attr('id') !== undefined)

This breaks the hide rule when inputs are hidden.

I think it should be

if (input.attr('id') === undefined)
