web admin interface for TicketSubmitPolicyPlugin

Reported by: Jeff Hammel Owned by: Jeff Hammel
Priority: normal Component: TicketSubmitPolicyPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: webadmin
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


it should be fairly straight forward to make a table (or tables) as a form where by one can alter the behavior of the TicketSubmitPolicyPlugin TTW instead of editting the .ini file. The basic form of this would be something like

 * [type] [is|is not] [defect]:
      [requires] [version]

where each [field] is a drop-down menu

we like the plugin a lot, but cannot us it as there is a "no productive file access" policy here. so this would be really helpful - to us anyway.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

the initial implementation is done as of r3996 ; the UI can be seen at

Some notes on this implementation:

  • this is done entirely as a form using a POST request. JS could be used to make the form more intelligent and alter the form without POSTing; I think that the "Apply" button should remain and be a POST request so that the policy is consistently flushed when the user clicks the button
  • the UI looks pretty bad; i'm not a UI designer, so any patches to the template that make things prettier would be appreciated
  • the values for conditions are text-boxes; instead they should be widgets according to both the field type and and comparitor operator; in other words,

[type] [is] <input type="text" />

should actually use a <select> tag instead of a text line. If the comparitor was "is in" instead of "is", instead of <select> checkboxes should be used, as they are for the policy actions ( see /query )

There are a number of other minor tweaks that are desirable, but these are the top three. These and other issues with the webadmin interface should be ticketed separately.
