Hide sensitive tickets with a checkbox.


SensitiveTickets is a plugin that lets users mark tickets as "sensitive" with a checkbox on the ticket form. Sensitive tickets are viewable only to those with the SENSITIVE_VIEW permission.

Beware: Hooks that send mail on ticket changes will still send mail for sensitive tickets; this may not be what you want.


A user submits a security related ticket to a project's Trac, which is generally open to the public. They mark it as "Sensitive" so that only people in the internal team that deal with security issues can see the ticket.

A team uses Trac to handle its business development tasks, but wants to leave the record open for all. Some tasks, however--say, dealing with difficult clients--are sensitive. Those tickets are marked as sensitive and hidden to others but viewable by the business development team.


The plugin is based on the example but uses a checkbox instead of text in the summary or keywords to mark a ticket as sensitive.

See also: PrivateTicketsPlugin.


To use this plugin you will have to edit your trac.ini file to use the new SenstiveTicketsPolicy permission policy, e.g.:

sensitivetickets.* = enabled

permission_policies = SensitiveTicketsPolicy, DefaultPermissionPolicy, LegacyAttachmentPolicy

Needs an environment upgrade after enabling.

(TODO explain what LegacyAttachmentPolicy is, and why one should or should not include it.)
