Manages named queues via drag-and-drop

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This plugin converts one or more reports into ticket 'queues'. A ticket queue allows you to drag-and-drop tickets in your desired order. Ticket positions in a queue get maintained in a custom field.

The motivation for this plugin is for when you want to organize a queue of tickets in the order you intend to tackle the work. Tickets could either use the milestone field as the 'bucket' or use a separate (custom) field. See the examples below for more details.


  1. Install the plugin (after downloading and unzipping):
    cd queuesplugin/0.12
    sudo python bdist_egg
    sudo cp dist/TracQueues*.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:
    queues.* = enabled

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

  1. Create a custom field to contain the position information - example trac.ini config:
    position = text
  1. Create/modify reports to be used as ticket queues whose first column's name must match the (custom) field created in step 3 above:
    • Can contain uppercase characters (which will get converted to lowercase)
    • Can use spaces (which will get removed)
  1. Tell the queues plugin which reports to convert to queues - example trac.ini config:
    reports = 9, 10

See the examples below for more detailed configuration examples and capabilities.
