#243 new enhancement

Show username rather than userid with hyperlink to user's page

Reported by: soloturn Owned by: anybody
Priority: normal Component: Request-a-Hack
Severity: normal Keywords: user management
Cc: Trac Release: 0.8


if you have artificial user id's/short-codes in a companies central user management system, it would be great to allow:

  • showing additional information of a user
  • like his name
  • a link to users web-page/intertrac to users web page

it would be also great if you a user has uid "12345" and you could anyway search for tickets by referencing the user name, not only the user id.

Possibly already implied by the original description, but having the option to _display_ the username in place of the user id in all sections of the Trac site (in tickets, in the timeline, etc.).

This information is already in the 'settings' page, just need to have a way to substitute that information in all relevant places.

Some of this information is stored in the database, which you could access using SqlQueryMacro. If you need access to records in trac.ini, try IniGetMacro.
