#4976 closed defect (worksforme)

Dependent tickets should link to each other

Reported by: mattcaron Owned by: coderanger
Priority: normal Component: MasterTicketsPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Ticket 1 blocks 2 Ticket 2 is therefore blocked by ticket 1

The ticket numbers in the "Blocked by" and "Depends on" fields should be links to the tickets which are listed in the fields.

I should mention that this is trac 0.11.5stable and TracMasterTickets 2.1.3. Both are built from svn sources.

comment:2 Changed 8 years ago by mattcaron

I tried this in 0.11.4 and that doesn't seem to work either.

comment:3 Changed 8 years ago by IBBoard

I'm running 0.11.4 and the links are there on the ticket page, but not in the query. I was looking at some of the spare files the other day* and there is a JavaScript file that appears as if it tries to link the ones in the table but it never gets called and I'm not sure if it would actually work.

  • there are various unused images and JS, but one JS was supposed to be used that wasn't installed on my site and was producing an Error 404

If the property change in the ticket read Blocked by #X rather than Blocked by X, perhaps a link would automatically render?

comment:5 Changed 7 years ago by IBBoard

Possibly, but it depends how the query page is rendered. The individual ticket pages link correctly for me, but if you introduce the extra columns in to the query page then it just lists numbers without linking them. If you rendered them with a # then Trac might render them as links, but it depends whether that is wiki text functionality only that isn't called for the table fields.

Trac 0.12 seems to have different data format, that is passed to post_process_request.

I changed mastertickets/ from

            data['mastertickets'] = {
                'field_values': {
                    'blocking': linkify_ids(self.env, req, links.blocking),
                    'blockedby': linkify_ids(self.env, req, links.blocked_by),


             for field in data['fields'][:]:
                if field['name'] == 'blocking':
                    field['rendered'] = linkify_ids(self.env, req, links.blocking)
                elif field['name'] == 'blockedby':
                    field['rendered'] = linkify_ids(self.env, req, links.blocked_by)

And now links work in ticket info

  • Trac Release changed from 0.11 to 0.12
  • Type changed from enhancement to defect

I'm using trac 0.12 and also lost the ticket link, finally I wrote a different patch with the above post, although maybe the above patch is better than this:

duplicat of #7139, already fixed

comment:9 Changed 7 years ago by ibboard

  • Resolution duplicate deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

This isn't a duplicate of #7139 - this was a 0.11 issue and not a 0.12 issue.

comment:10 Changed 6 years ago by anonymous

  • Trac Release changed from 0.12 to 0.11

I have the same issue in TRAC 0.11.

The dependency graph works fine. When you update a block or blocking field it updates the corresponding ticket correctly, but the ticket numbers don't become links. Everything else seems fine.

comment:11 Changed 5 years ago by anonymous

I am using Trac 0.11.7 and am still having this issue.

comment:12 Changed 4 years ago by rjollos

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from reopened to closed

See also #7936. I believe this has been fixed in the latest revision of the plugin. See 47a7aee54553fb718c376cfa9d7de4389a391e33. Please reopen if you continue to have issues and can provide more details about your configuration.
