Enable a drop-down list to select users for custom fields. Set a specific user according to workflow

This plugin uses a 'patch-style' implementation rather than the normal one. It may cause unknown influence to other plugins that depends on TicketSystem.custom_fields and ConfigurableTicketWorkflow._to_users.

Not recommended in production use. Use at your own risks.

Description

This plugin enables a field to select a specific user according to configuration. This field can later be used in workflow.

  1. Create a select Custom Field:
project_usera = select
project_usera.format = user
project_usera.user = Manager     

where:

  • field type must be 'select',
  • format must be 'user',
  • user is optional and default to 'authenticated', and can be set to comma separated users, groups or PERMISSIONS.

  1. Use this user in workflow:
    pj0102_test = PJ01 -> PJ02
    pj0102_test.operations = set_owner
    pj0102_test.name = test
    pj0102_test.set_owner = $project_usera
    

all you need to do is use a '$' with the field name.

Notice: Function 2 can also be achieved by AdvancedTicketWorkflowPlugin's set_owner_to_field operation

[ticket]
workflow = ConfigurableTicketWorkflow, TicketWorkflowOpOwnerField

[ticket-workflow]
reassign2 = new,assigned,accepted,reopened -> assigned
reassign2.operations = set_owner_to_field
reassign2.set_owner_to_field = project_usera
