Search in multiple Trac projects


This plugin provides functionality to search within all the projects in a multi-project environment setup.

Basically the plugin offers a new check-box "All projects" under the search field:

This plugin will work in a multi-project environment, as it will search all projects in the environment folder. For example, you can use it by having a multi-project environment, where one project is the master project, and has SearchAllPlugin enabled.

By default, the search will be performed within all projects.

You can also limit the search to certain projects, by adding the projects to your trac.ini file:

include_projects = project1, project2, project3

This will search only in projects project1, project2 and project3.

Or you can exclude projects from the search as follows:

exclude_projects = project1, project2

This will search in all projects except project1 and project2.

In scope of security it should be noted that searching the other projects does not need particular authentication or permissions in those other projects. Remember that each search result exposes small text fragments which people may see.
