Configuring project data and setting project configuration options


This plugin provides an extension for trac-admin for easy removal of unneeded milestones, components, etc., and setting configuration options from a file.

Extends command trac-admin with some more commands:

  • component removeall <pattern>: Remove all components with a specific pattern.
  • permission removeall <user_pattern>: Remove all permissions with a specific pattern for users.
  • milestone removeall <pattern>: Remove all milestones with a specific pattern.
  • version removeall <pattern>: Remove all versions with a specific pattern.
  • ticket_type removeall <pattern>;: Remove all ticket_types with a specific pattern.
  • priority removeall <pattern>;: Remove all priorities with a specific pattern.
  • config setall <path/to/file>: Set all config options from file to trac.ini.
  • plugin replace <plugin_name>: Replaces plugin(s) with plugin name (without version).
  • plugin replaceall: Replaces all plugins (dangerous!).
  • attachment unused: Removes unused attachments (dangerous!); options: [list | remove].
    • option list only lists unused attachments.
    • option remove backups attachments into $PROJECT_ENV/ and removes unused attachments; this could be useful when upgrading Trac from revision before 11036 to Trac revision after that.

Patterns can have wildcards (%).

Example usage of commands:

# removes all components starting with component
trac-admin </path/to/projenv> component removeall component%

# removes ALL (!) versions
trac-admin </path/to/projenv> version removeall %

# overrides and creates all config entries from `company.ini`
trac-admin </path/to/projenv> config setall company.ini

# replaces plugin TracAccountManager
trac-admin </path/to/projenv> plugin replace TracAccountManager

# removes all plugins (and made a backup) 
# then copies all plugins of the current directory into plugins-directory  
trac-admin </path/to/projenv> plugin replaceall

adding additional command attachment unused, which lists or removes unused attachments; when calling attachment unused list the output could be piped and afterwards opened by OpenOffice Calc by using separator ":"


trac-admin $TRAC_ENV attachment unused list > attachments.txt
trac-admin $TRAC_ENV attachment unused remove > attachments.txt
