What is it?
FlexibleAssignTo finally gives long-suffering Trac admins a way to easily customize the 'assign to' field on tickets. It provides several base classes for you to override and implement your own methods for providing lists of valid users -- you can even customize valid users for each state in your workflow.
- adds new Extension point, IValidOwnerProvider, for plugging in your own components
- provides SimpleUser base class and helper methods (getlist, getbool) to streamline implementation of your IValidOwnerProvider component(s)
- data-source agnostic -- FlexibleAssignTo abstracts the nastiness of building a customized 'assign to' select box. All your custom code has to do is decide what users are valid for a particular state and then return them.
- optional 'ensure_user_data' capability so that users who appear as valid 'assign to' targets get their key data (username, fullname, email) stored in the Trac session_attribute table. The motivation for this was so notification emails could be sent to these users even if they've never logged in and set their preferences.
- optional get_known_users() replacement that changes Trac's 'known users' concept such that users' name & email data is retrieved from the session_attribute table (designed to work in concert with the 'ensure_user_data' capability).
- FlexibleAssignTo processing can be selectively disabled for individual workflow states
- Example plugin implementation included (SampleValidOwnerProvider.py)
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.
