Validate ticket fields

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This plugin allows you to perform validations on form input fields in your Trac pages.

Key features:

  • support validate anonymous to input valid email address
  • support required fields
  • support match fields to regular expression

As an example:

  1. Validate anonymous author email address and make the comment a required input:
    tracticketvalidator.* = enabled
    validate_author = true
    validate_author.tip = Please enter your email address
    validates = comment, summary
    comment.rule = .*
    comment.tip = Please input comment
    summary.rule = [A-Z].*
    summary.tip = Please correct summary

Note: when validating more than one field, use a list after "validates =".

  1. There is a very straightward implementation of parent/child tickets: just prepend parent ticket number to the child ticket summary. For example, if the parent ticket 234 summary is <#0>A parent ticket, then the child ticket summary will be <#234>A child ticket. We can perform a validation as follows:
    tracticketvalidator.* = enabled
    validates = summary
    summary.rule = ^<#\d*>.*
    summary.tip = Please correct summary format
