#12933 closed defect (fixed)

TracWorkflowAdminPlugin incompatible with Trac 1.2

Reported by: Jacob Owned by: Jun Omae
Priority: normal Component: TracWorkflowAdminPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 1.2


All works fine with TracWorkflowAdmin in Trac 1.0.13, but after the upgrade to 1.2, Admin > Workflow Admin is empty (see attached screenshot).

And, if I click Restore Initial State, I get:

Trac detected an internal error:

TypeError: expected string or buffer

Using the Sandbox, I can see that Graphviz still works fine, so that's not it.

Empty Workflow Admin in Trac 1.2

Please post the error with stacktrace after enabling TracLogging.

comment:2 Changed 6 years ago by Jacob

This is strange...

If I tail -f trac.log:

When I click 'Workflow Admin', all I see is this even though the page is basically empty as seen in the attachment:

2016-11-08 10:22:05,398 Trac[main] DEBUG: Dispatching <RequestWithSession "GET '/admin/ticket/workflowadmin'">

If I then click 'Restore initial state', the TypeError is thrown but nothing is added to the log.

Instead, this is the Python traceback:

Thanks for the details. Okay. I'll investigate the issue with Trac 1.2.

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by Jun Omae

Fixed broken workflow editor in [15945]. However, the plugin uses jquery-multiselect.js for Operations column but it is broken with jQuery 1.11.x bundled in Trac 1.2.

comment:5 Changed 6 years ago by Jacob

I personally don't have a problem with 2 separate jQuery libraries if that's what it will take...

comment:6 Changed 6 years ago by Jacob

Jun, if I apply your patch, where would I need to make a call to use a good version of jquery-multiselect? Which version works for you?

comment:7 Changed 6 years ago by Jun Omae

The plugin with jquery-multiselect.js 1.9 on Trac 1.2: TypeError: m.easing[this.easing] is not a function occurs. The plugin with jquery-multiselect.js 1.17 (latest) on Trac 1.2: the multiselect is shown at wrong position.

First I checked that the update works with Trac 1.0.13. It does.

Then I tried with 1.2. I've attached an animated gif that shows what I saw. I noticed that in 1.2 there are two new actions: create, and create_and_assign. Did the error I see come from the fact that my existing workflow didn't take them into account?

Please post stacktrace of the errors in your trac.log and javascript errors if javascript errors are raised.

tracworkflowadmin: add may_set_owner to default operations (refs #12933)

comment:13 Changed 6 years ago by Jun Omae

It seems to be caused by may_set_owner operation. The operation was not listed in default of [workflow-admin] operations option. In [16032], it is added to the option. Please try latest.

Just tried TracWorkflowAdmin It works both in 1.0.13 and 1.2! Everything appears in the admin, and no more error messages.

I see that the workflow diagram automatically includes the new actions while keeping the custom workflow I already had in place.

Great job! 👏👏👏

And thanks
