#10901 new task

Adoption request - move user rename function to AccountManagerPlugin

Reported by: Steffen Hoffmann Owned by: obs
Priority: high Component: RenameTracUsersScript
Severity: normal Keywords: adoption rename user
Cc: Ryan J Ollos Trac Release:


A single pending ticket from 11-Sep-2010 suggests, that this script is not too buggy. Additionally its tagged as unmaintained as of today.

I'm interested in bringing user rename function into AccountManagerPlugin, because I feel, that this would fit there very well.

I the original author still around? I'd like to especially agree about license for taking code from this script. Other comments and thoughts?

In case of no response I'll continue to execute my plan after two weeks, as that's the usual, agreed procedure for adopting hacks here.

See #10900 and #10902 as related requests.

(In [12700]) AccountManagerPlugin: Introduce code for changing session IDs consistently, refs #10900, #10901 and #10902.

There are actually three predecessors to this code (in creation time order): RenameUsersScript, RenameTracUsersScript and RenameUserPlugin. While the scripts yield some hints on how to approach the task, the last one is the most complete in terms of a real API, but can't be used for having the viral GPL license attached, that would interfere and overpower the modified BSD, that we use with this plugin.

So this is neither fresh code nor copied verbatim but something in-between. I'm grateful and therefor grant every author of the aforementioned hacks my respect for going ahead and sharing their solution with us.

You're welcome to join and help improve my attempt, that aims at obsoleting all others by providing the best in Trac integration, flexibility, reliability and performance. Especially user ID changes in the Cc ticket field and corresponding change records are not supported yet.

(In [12701]) AccountManagerPlugin: Adding admin web-UI parts for new user ID change code, refs #10900, #10901 and #10902.

(In [12702]) AccountManagerPlugin: Support user ID replacement in Cc ticket field and its changes, refs #10900, #10901 and #10902.

comment:5 Changed 6 years ago by Steffen Hoffmann

(In [12706]) AccountManagerPlugin: Various improvements for user ID change code, refs #10900, #10901 and #10902.

This evolved mostly for adding real transaction error handling, catching common db-related exceptions and for providing a more i18n-friendly and more readable message on success - almost on the edge of my current db foo.

(In [12736]) AccountManagerPlugin: Add optional user ID changer components for other plugins, refs #10900, #10901, #10902, #10944 and #10945.

In addition to VotePlugin (supported by RenameTracUsersScript too) support for

is provided within this plugin.

With the publication of this code the requests for feedback are almost obsoleted, even more, because non of the pre-existing solutions provided the coverage and extensibility, that is offered now within this plugin.
