Move Trac tickets from one project to another

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This plugin allows you to move Trac tickets from one project to another, provided the projects reside in the same environment directory, including attachments.

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:

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.

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)
