#6328 closed defect (fixed)

Reported by: Owned by: anonymous rjollos normal MultipleWorkflowPlugin normal 0.11

The debug log shows the following information:

2009-12-14 12:05:27,823 Trac[loader] DEBUG: Loading MultipleWorkflowPlugin from d:\daten\trac\projekte\ish\plugins\multipleworkflowplugin-1.0-py2.5.egg
2009-12-14 12:05:27,823 Trac[loader] ERROR: Skipping "MultipleWorkflowPlugin = MultipleWorkflowPlugin": (can't import "ImportError: No module named MultipleWorkflowPlugin")


I installed the plugin using the admin page=>plugins=>install plugin. When I install it again, I get the message "already installed": I activated the plugin in the trac.ini as shown in the example...

Enable the plugin with:

[components]
multipleworkflowplugin.* = enabled
multipleworkflowplugin.multipleworkflowplugin.multipleworkflowplugin = enabled


Add the controller to the workflow controller list:

[ticket]
workflow=MultipleWorkflowPlugin


For using it you should have in the trac.ini file the [ticket-workflow] session because when a section for a ticket type doesn't exist trac uses the [ticket-workflow] for the actions to do. If you want to define different workflows than you should create in trac.ini sections called [ticket-workflow-ticket_type] where ticket_type is the type of ticket you want to use this section,you can create all the sections you want and trac will use them when that kind of ticket is being used,you can create ticket type in the admin panel under ticket types.

Any idea, what I did wrong?

Kind regards, Andreas

I am using Trac 0.11.6

I have the same problem.

Which version of Trac are you running?

Trac 0.11.7

I actually found a workaround by:

• moving MultipleWorkflowPlugin.py and an empty __init__.py to a new sub-folder MultipleWorkflowPlugin as usually plugins have sub-folders for python files and
• Editing setup.py: entry_points = { 'trac.plugins':['MultipleWorkflowPlugin=MultipleWorkflowPlugin.MultipleWorkflowPlugin'],}

Maybe the original issue is caused by the fact that setup.py and __init__.py are in the same folder?

The command I use when compiling the egg: python setup.py bdist_egg

I use Python version 2.7.3 if it has something to do with this problem.

That shouldn't be the case, see: multipleworkflowplugin/0.11@13463. The structure is:

• setup.py
• MultipleWorkflowPlugin
• __init__.py
• MultipleWorkflowPlugin.py

There were a large number of problems with the plugin. I didn't test enough to be certain that every issue is fixed, but the most basic functionality seems to work. You'll need to reinstall from the SVN repository to get the latest changes.

Btw, you may be better off using TypedTicketWorkflowPlugin.

comment:13 Changed 3 years ago by juha.simola@…

Thanks you for your responses. I used the zipped source provided at https://trac-hacks.org/wiki/MultipleWorkflowPlugin. Most probably it was outdated, because the folder structure was different.

I'll check the TypedTicketWorkflowPlugin you suggested. Or maybe AdvancedTicketWorkflowPlugin would be more recent? Do you have an opinion?

comment:14 Changed 3 years ago by rjollos

The zip sources were outdated, so I removed the files and have updated the wiki page so that the download links point to the subversion repository.

I don't have any experience with the two plugins you mention, but they both seem to be used more often than this plugin. You may want to ask for opinions on the t:MailingList.
