#8952 new defect

Plugin not working due to table schema constraints

Reported by: mrctrevisan Owned by: yosiyuki

Severity: major Keywords:
Cc: Ryan J Ollos Trac Release: 0.12


Hi all,

I downloaded, created the egg file and uploaded it to my Trac 0.12 instance (using postgresql 8.3, python 2.5 on linux debian lenny).

I then run "trac-admin trac-env-path update" as suggested by the plugin's post install message and added to my trac user the bookmark related privileges.

When I tried to add a bookmark, the "*" link was apparently inactive (when pressed it did nothing), so I wasn't able to add a bookmark.

After some investigation (i.e. open the "*" link target into a new page and see Postgresql complaining about the "name" column being not null but a null value is supplied) I finally found out that the table "bookmarks" has a pk made of 3 columns:

trac=# \d bookmarks
  Table "public.bookmarks"
  Column  | Type | Modifiers 
 resource | text | not null
 name     | text | not null
 username | text | not null
    "bookmarks_pk" PRIMARY KEY, btree (resource, name, username)

but the plugin's code on insert is as follows:

    def set_bookmark(self, req, resource):
        """Bookmark a resource."""
#        resource = self.normalise_resource(resource)
        if self.get_bookmark(req, resource):

        db = self.env.get_db_cnx()
        cursor = db.cursor()
        cursor.execute('INSERT INTO bookmarks (resource, username) '
                       'VALUES (%s, %s)',
                       (resource, get_reporter_id(req)))

If I run the following SQL script, the plugin starts working as expected:

alter TABLE bookmarks drop constraint bookmarks_pk;
alter TABLE bookmarks add primary key (resource,username);
alter table bookmarks ALTER name DROP not null;

The plugin code doesn't seem to be up to date with the table design, or the table design seems too strongly constrained.

(In [11901]) bookmarkplugin: refs #8952, workaround, uses empty string instead of NULL for name column when inserting bookmarks record
