Manage users and teams

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.

Notice: there are plans to integrate the functionality of this plugin into AccountManagerPlugin.


This plugin provides a simple, standard way for teams to manage the resources on the team from within Trac. While trac.admin provides too many places to set up one user, this plugin provides one single page where a project admin can setup all things related to one user.

Key features:

  • Helps managing users, such as profiles, permissions, authentication (based on AccountManagerPlugin), and anything based on this plugin's extension points.
  • Provides filterable team rosters based on user profiles and custom fields.
  • There is also an API available to allow you to develop your own user views.

User page

See below for more screenshots.

To use as a macro:

[[UserProfilesList]]                                  # Without arguments returns current active user profiles
[[UserProfilesList(role=developer)]]                  # Returns all userProfiles with role='developer' 
[[UserProfilesList(NOT_role=developer)]]              # Returns all userProfiles with NOT role=developer
[[UserProfilesList(name=%someName%)]]                 # Returns all userProfiles with name like 'someName' 
[[UserProfilesList({id=cbalan},{role=%arh%})]]        # Returns cbalan's profile and user profiles with role='%arh%' 
[[UserProfilesList(|class=someCSS_Class, style=border:1px solid green;padding:12px)]] # Adds style and class attributes to box layout

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

Install the plugin, for example for Trac 0.11: easy_install


Add the following lines to your trac.ini file:

tracusermanager.* = enabled

office = select
office.cols = 20
office.label = Office
office.options = |Bucharest|Boston|San Francisco|New York
office.order = 1

bio = wikitext
bio.cols = 70
bio.rows = 10
bio.label = Bio
bio.order = 2

gim = text
gim.cols = 20
gim.label = Gmail
gim.order = 3

yim = text
yim.cols = 20
yim.label = Yahoo
yim.order = 4

tags = multichecks
tags.label = Tags
tags.options = developer|qa|pm|ux
tags.order = 5

Note: If you also have AccountManagerPlugin installed, you may want to disable its admin interface, so you don't have two 'Users' entries in the Admin Accounts section:

acct_mgr.admin.accountmanageradminpanel = disabled  # AccountManager < 0.5
acct_mgr.admin.useradminpanel = disabled  # AccountManager >= 0.5


from tracusermanager.api import UserManager, User

# Get user by id(username)
user = UserManager(env).get_user( "cbalan" )

# Get active users
team = UserManager(env).get_active_users()
for user in team:
    print user.username
    print user['email']
    print user['bio']

# Search users ( Dummy example: All active developers that have an gmail account )
search_result_list = UserManager(env).search_users(User(role="developer", email=""))
for user in search_result_list:
    print user.username
    print user['role']

# Create new user
UserManager(self.env).create_user(User(username="cbalan", name="Catalin Balan", email=""))

# Update
user = UserManager(self.env).get_user('cbalan')
user['bio'] = """Maecenas ut mauris. Morbi congue nunc ut tortor. Pellentesque molestie cursus enim. 
Praesent gravida consequat mauris. Nulla cursus cursus magna. 
Sed libero. Integer dapibus urna in mauris. 

Fusce fringilla: 
 - Mauris ipsum mauris, semper at, lacinia ultrices, pellentesque eget, arcu. 
 - Etiam vel enim et nunc luctus gravida. Morbi suscipit scelerisque odio. 
 - Mauris porta. 

Nullam dui. Nullam egestas, massa eu condimentum mattis, enim ipsum tincidunt purus,

  • Could you explain the interface?
  • What's the difference between 'Users' and 'External Users'?
  • Some of the screen shots seem like they might be out of date.
