#3151 new enhancement

Two requests: Assign to specific user, Send email

Reported by: gmr@… Owned by: retracile
Priority: low Component: AdvancedTicketWorkflowPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Looking for two features:

  1. The ability to assign to a particular user without having them on the ticket. Something like TicketWorkflowOpOwnerField but where you can specify the username instead of the Field.
  2. The ability to send off a custom email notification. In our case it's an email to mailing list that a ticket has reached a certain state and we don't want to force use of that mailing list on the CC (makes for very verbose chatter). This is what I'm trying to achieve by using TicketWorkflowOpRunExternal in #3150.

For the first request: The set_owner operation provided by Trac core allows you to specify a single user. Is that not what you want?

For the second request: Yeah, 'send_email' or something would be useful.

(In the future, when you have 2 requests, please file each as a separate ticket.)

Sorry for the wrong component, could have sworn I checked that.

Re #1, ah I wasn't aware of that, I must have missed that in the documentation. Thanks for the clarification.

Will break up any future requests.

  • Priority changed from normal to low

While I could implement a send_email operation, I don't think writing a shell script and using the run_external operation is that much work. I think a send_email operation would be handy, but I'm going to leave this enhancement to the LazyWeb for now.
