Remote Ticket Plugin


This plugin allows you to link tickets in one Trac instance to tickets in other Trac instances. Links and their behaviour are configurable, for example parents/children, blockers/blockedby.

The plugin builds on and requires the ticket-links branch of Trac. Currently this means you must be running the remote-ticket branch of Trac from XmlRpcPlugin is also required to perform remote fetching of ticket details.

You can check out RemoteTicketPlugin from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


General instructions on installing Trac plugins can be found on the TracPlugins page.


To configure ticket-links for a relationship in which:

  • Any ticket may depend on and be dependant on many tickets.
  • A ticket may not be closed until all tickets it depends on are closed.
dependency = dependson,dependant
dependency.validator = no_cycle
dependant.label = Dependant
dependson.label = Depends on
dependson.blocks = true

To confgiure a relationship in which :

  • A ticket may have many child tickets, and at most one parent ticket.
  • A new child ticket will have it's summary and description pre-populated from its parent.
  • A parent ticket may not be closed until all child tickets are closed.
parentchild = parent,children
parentchild.validator = parent_child
children.blocks = true
children.label = Child
children.copy_fields = summary, description
parent.label = Parent

To configure a relationship in which:

  • A ticket may refer to another ticket and there is no reciprocal link.
  • A ticket may be closed regardless of the link.
reference = refersto
refersto.label = Refers to

Many different relationships may be configured at once, relationship names must each be unique.

To enable the remote tickets plugin, add to your trac.ini file:

tracremoteticket.* = enabled

To configure remote Trac instances create a trac:InterTrac reference and add remote_ticket = true to your trac.ini file:

example.remote_ticket = true
example.title = Bravo
example.url =

Install XmlRpcPlugin and grant XML_RPC to anonymous.

Configure the an trac:InterTrac reference, the same ticket-links relationships and the same XmlRpcPlugin grant in the remote Trac instance.
