#8188 closed defect (fixed)

CustomFieldAdmin causes delete of other plugins' settings

Reported by: ralf.wohner@… Owned by: osimons
Priority: high Component: CustomFieldAdminPlugin
Severity: major Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


When you use an other plugin (in my case TracDynamicFields 1.1.0) that has settings in the [ticket-custom] block in combination with CustomFieldAdmin, CFA deletes the settings of the other plugin on edited fields.


myfield = select
myfield.label = Funny Field
myfield.options = n/a|an option|another option
myfield.order = 5
myfield.show_when_type = enhancement
myfield.value = n/a
myfield.clear_on_hide = false

and then e.g. I add a third option via CFA, the ini file will read

myfield = select
myfield.label = Funny Field
myfield.options = n/a|an option|another option|a third option
myfield.order = 5
myfield.value = n/a

i.e. the "show_when_type" and the "clear_on_hide" are deleted.

I hope you can patch CFA so that it leaves unknown lines as they are instead of dropping them out. Currently I had to disable CFA, but our non-bash-admins really miss it :-)

If there is any dirty workaround that allows me to keep these ini entries, that would be welcome, too (maybe I can put my additional keys in an include file? I'll try that...).

Thank you in advance, Ralf

If you are still working on this plugin, I'd still be interested in a solution :)

Thanks a lot!

Your welcome :-)

BTW, forgot to add the new file with tests - added in [11152]. They should verify your use-case.
