Default and convert report dynamic variables to pulldowns


This plugin applies to all reports that use dynamic variables. The plugin does two things for dynamic variables whose (uppercase) name exactly matches a built-in or custom (lowercase) select field name:

  • Dynamic variables are set to default values if unset
  • The text fields for dynamic variables are converted to pulldown menus

JavaScript is required for the second feature above.


  1. Install the plugin (after downloading and unzipping):
    cd dynamicvariablesplugin/0.11
    sudo python bdist_egg
    sudo cp dist/TracDynamicVariables*.egg /your/trac/location/plugins/

See TracPlugins for more installation details and options. You'll likely need to restart Trac's web server after installation.

  1. Enable the plugin:
    dynvars.* = enabled

You can alternatively use the Trac Web Admin GUI to enable any or all rules.
