Move Trac tickets from one project to another

Description

This plugin allows you to move Trac tickets from one project to another, provided the projects reside in the same environment directory. Install and enable the plugin and in the ticket sidebar controls will be shown to anyone with TICKET_ADMIN permission (by default) to move the ticket to another peer project where the user also has TICKET_ADMIN permissions.

There is a fork of this plugin by UnwashedMeme that implements an ITicketActionController for moving tickets. Please open tickets for that version of the plugin in the GitHub issue tracker.

The similar DatamoverPlugin doesn't work for Trac 0.11 and is effectively deprecated. TicketMoverPlugin also handles ticket attachments.

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

Installation

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

Enable the plugin in your trac.ini file:

[components]
ticketmoverplugin.ticketmover.ticketmover = enabled
ticketmoverplugin.web_ui.ticketmoverhandler = enabled
ticketmoverplugin.web_ui.ticketmoversidebar = enabled

Enable the TicketSidebarProviderPlugin in your trac.ini file:

[components]
ticketsidebarprovider.ticketsidebar.ticketsidebarprovider = enabled

The permission required for moving a ticket can be specified (default value is shown):

[ticket]
move_permission = TICKET_ADMIN

The environment variable TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR must be set in your web configuration or cgi/fcgi/wsgi script when running with a web server such as Apache with mod_wsgi/mod_python.

Project on Remote Server

lkraav: I had a use case where I needed to move tickets between Tracs on two different machines. TicketMoverPlugin does not support this natively. To solve this, I mounted remote Trac project directory into a directory residing next to the local project directory over CIFS (certainly NFS or other network FS should work). This makes remote Trac appear local to TicketMoverPlugin and tickets were moved without errors. (10/06/09)

Example

If you have permissions, a box will show up allowing you to move the current ticket to a different project. If you check the delete checkbox, the ticket will also be deleted from the database, though this is not recommended in most cases. If you don't delete the ticket, it will be closed with a resolution of moved:
