New Ticket Like This
The NewTicketLikeThisPlugin adds a "Clone" button to existing tickets, which lets you create a new ticket whose fields derive from the original ticket if you have the appropriate permission.
It is based on the tracopt.ticket.clone.ticketclonebutton extension that
ships with Trac core. Unlike that extension, the NewTicketLikeThisPlugin
defines and consumes a pluggable interface for implementing custom policies
to determine the way in which a new ticket is derived from the original.
This allows flexible, customized business logic to be provided based on
the needs and workflows of your team. Also, the NewTicketLikeThisPlugin
allows you to configure the permission required to clone a ticket, whereas
hard-codes the TICKET_ADMIN permission.
Two policies are provided by default, in the
- SimpleTicketCloner mimics the behavior of the
extension: all fields from the original ticket are cloned, and the "summary" and "description" fields are modified to denote the ticket that they were cloned from.
- ExcludedFieldsTicketCloner clones all fields from the original ticket with no modifications. It can also ignore certain fields entirely, based on a configuration setting, which will force the new ticket to be generated with the system's default values (or no values) for the fields that were excluded.
More complex policies might implement custom logic for deriving new ticket values based on the values of the existing ticket's fields, or use alternate cloning policies based on the ticket's type.
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.
