Controls the initial status of tickets
This plugin is deprecated, please use the TicketConditionalCreationStatusPlugin instead. Neither plugin is needed with Trac 1.1.3 or later (trac:#2045) since Trac allows ticket create actions to be defined.
In default Trac, all tickets start off with a status of "new"; but this may not be desirable, especially with the workflow additions in 0.11.
This plugin allows you to specify both:
- The 'default' status that a new ticket should start off as, and
- The status that a ticket which has an owner should be set to.
E.g., if someone ends up owning the ticket-- be it from the 'Assigned-to' drop down, or a default owner in a component, the ticket can start its life as Assigned.
General instructions on installing Trac plugins can be found on the TracPlugins page.
Activate the TicketCreationStatus component if installed for all Trac projects in trac.ini:
[components] ticketcreationstatus.* = enabled
Then add either of the following trac.ini options:
[ticketcreationstatus] default = test owned = assigned
Both options are optional-- if you don't specify 'default', then tickets will remain 'new' after creation. If you specify 'owned', then a ticket that gets an owner will get that status.
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.
