Trac Ticket Queries

In addition to reports, Trac provides support for custom ticket queries, used to display lists of tickets meeting a specified set of criteria.

To configure and execute a custom query, switch to the View Tickets module from the navigation bar, and select the Custom Query link.

Filters

When you first go to the query page the default filter will display tickets relevant to you:

  • If logged in then all open tickets it will display open tickets assigned to you.
  • If not logged in but you have specified a name or email address in the preferences then it will display all open tickets where your email (or name if email not defined) is in the CC list.
  • If not logged and no name/email defined in the preferences then all open issues are displayed.

Current filters can be removed by clicking the button to the left with the minus sign on the label. New filters are added from the pulldown lists at the bottom corners of the filters box ('And' conditions on the left, 'Or' conditions on the right). Filters with either a text box or a pulldown menu of options can be added multiple times to perform an or of the criteria.

You can use the fields just below the filters box to group the results based on a field, or display the full description for each ticket.

Once you've edited your filters click the Update button to refresh your results.

Clicking on one of the query results will take you to that ticket. You can navigate through the results by clicking the Next Ticket or Previous Ticket links just below the main menu bar, or click the Back to Query link to return to the query page.

You can safely edit any of the tickets and continue to navigate through the results using the Next/Previous/Back to Query links after saving your results. When you return to the query any tickets which were edited will be displayed with italicized text. If one of the tickets was edited such that it no longer matches the query criteria the text will also be greyed. Lastly, if a new ticket matching the query criteria has been created, it will be shown in bold.

The query results can be refreshed and cleared of these status indicators by clicking the Update button again.

Saving Queries

Trac allows you to save the query as a named query accessible from the reports module. To save a query ensure that you have Updated the view and then click the Save query button displayed beneath the results. You can also save references to queries in Wiki content, as described below.

Note: one way to easily build queries like the ones below, you can build and test the queries in the Custom report module and when ready - click Save query. This will build the query string for you. All you need to do is remove the extra line breaks.

You may want to save some queries so that you can come back to them later. You can do this by making a link to the query from any Wiki page.

[query:status=new|assigned|reopened&version=1.0 Active tickets against 1.0]

Which is displayed as:

Active tickets against 1.0

This uses a very simple query language to specify the criteria (see Query Language).

Alternatively, you can copy the query string of a query and paste that into the Wiki link, including the leading ? character:

[query:?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&group=owner Assigned tickets by owner]

Which is displayed as:

Assigned tickets by owner

Using the [[TicketQuery]] Macro

The TicketQuery macro lets you display lists of tickets matching certain criteria anywhere you can use WikiFormatting.

Example:

[[TicketQuery(version=0.6|0.7&resolution=duplicate)]]

This is displayed as:

No results

Just like the query: wiki links, the parameter of this macro expects a query string formatted according to the rules of the simple ticket query language.

A more compact representation without the ticket summaries is also available:

[[TicketQuery(version=0.6|0.7&resolution=duplicate, compact)]]

This is displayed as:

No results

Finally, if you wish to receive only the number of defects that match the query, use the count parameter.

[[TicketQuery(version=0.6|0.7&resolution=duplicate, count)]]

This is displayed as:

0

Customizing the table format

You can also customize the columns displayed in the table format (format=table) by using col=<field> - you can specify multiple fields and what order they are displayed by placing pipes (|) between the columns like below:

[[TicketQuery(max=3,status=closed,order=id,desc=1,format=table,col=resolution|summary|owner|reporter)]]

This is displayed as:

Results (1 - 3 of 124)

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
Ticket Resolution Summary Owner Reporter
#250 fixed Incorrect address calculation of polymorphc object on clean-up Thierry Delisle <tdelisle@…> Thierry Delisle
#241 fixed Parser doesn't handle pragmas correctly pabuhr Thierry Delisle
#237 fixed Various container includes cannot be in the same compile unit Michael Brooks <mlbrooks@…> mlbrooks
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Full rows

In table format you can also have full rows by using rows=<field> like below:

[[TicketQuery(max=3,status=closed,order=id,desc=1,format=table,col=resolution|summary|owner|reporter,rows=description)]]

This is displayed as:

Results (1 - 3 of 124)

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
Ticket Resolution Summary Owner Reporter
#250 fixed Incorrect address calculation of polymorphc object on clean-up Thierry Delisle <tdelisle@…> Thierry Delisle
Description

Given the following code. The handling of destructors is broken unless the 'sized' assertion is removed.

trait trt(L & | sized(L)) {};

forall(L & | trt(L))
struct object {
	L * f2;
};

forall(L & | trt(L))
void bar(L * ) {
	object(L) obj;
}

Without the size assertion, the generated code is fairly simple since the compiler correctly detects that the layout of the object is indenpendent of 'L'.

void _X3barQ1_0_0_0__Fv_PBD0__1(__attribute__ ((unused)) void *__anonymous_object2142){
    void __cleanup_dtor17(struct object *_dst){
        {
            ((void)_X11_destructorQ1_0_0_0__Fv_S6object_BD0__autogen___1(_dst));
        }

    }
    __attribute__ ((cleanup(__cleanup_dtor17))) struct object _X3objS6object_Y1L__2;
    {
        ((void)_X12_constructorQ1_0_0_0__Fv_S6object_BD0__autogen___1((&_X3objS6object_Y1L__2)));
    }
}

Note the use of __attribute__((cleanup())).

When adding the 'sized' assertion the code generations changes to use a char array rather than a static struct:

void _X3barQ1_0_0_0__Fv_PBD0__1(__attribute__ ((unused)) unsigned long int _sizeof_Y1L, __attribute__ ((unused)) unsigned long int _alignof_Y1L, __attribute__ ((unused)) void *__anonymous_object2142){
    void __cleanup_dtor17(void *_dst){
        {
            ((void)_X11_destructorQ1_0_0_0__Fv_S6object_BD0__autogen___1(_sizeof_Y1L, _alignof_Y1L, ((void *)_dst)));
        }

    }
    unsigned long int _sizeof_S6object_Y1L_;
    unsigned long int _alignof_S6object_Y1L_;
    unsigned long int _offsetof_S6object_Y1L_[1];
    ((void)_layoutof_object((&_sizeof_S6object_Y1L_), (&_alignof_S6object_Y1L_), _offsetof_S6object_Y1L_, _sizeof_Y1L, _alignof_Y1L));
    __attribute__ ((aligned(8))) char _buf32[_sizeof_S6object_Y1L_];
    __attribute__ ((cleanup(__cleanup_dtor17))) void *_X3objS6object_Y1L__2 = _buf32;
    {
        ((void)_X12_constructorQ1_0_0_0__Fv_S6object_BD0__autogen___1(_sizeof_Y1L, _alignof_Y1L, ((void *)_X3objS6object_Y1L__2)));
    }

}

Note that the cleanup is on the pointer rather than the buffer therefore the correct address is the value of _X3objS6object_Y1L__2 not its address.

This is incorrect because __cleanup_dtor17 will be passed the address of _X3objS6object_Y1L__2 and it does not dereference it.

#241 fixed Parser doesn't handle pragmas correctly pabuhr Thierry Delisle
Description

This code doesn't parse unless it's inside a function

#pragma GCC diagnostic push
#pragma GCC diagnostic pop
#237 fixed Various container includes cannot be in the same compile unit Michael Brooks <mlbrooks@…> mlbrooks
Description

Known inconsistencies:

  • Vector with bits/Containers
  • Vector with bits/Sequence

Minimal case

#include <vector.hfa>
#include <bits/sequence.hfa>

Expected: compile succeeds; link fails (no main) Actual: compile fails: Cannot choose between 2 alternatives for back = 0p in ?{}( Sequable & ), where back is ambiguous between datum sq.back (intended) and function declared in vector.hfa (unintended).

Applied case

#include <vector.hfa>             // as in tests/vector.cfa
#include <bits/weakso_locks.hfa>  // represents desire to add this include in fstream.hfa
#include <fstream.hfa>            // as in tests/vector.cfa

(Behaviours are similar)

These prevent Fstream from including Locks (which includes both the above bits) because the Vector test includes Fstream, which produces the problem combination.

Problem comes from bits/x shipping function bodies that declare and refer to the names front/back. When included in a clean context, those names resolve as intended. When included in a context that already has Vector, those names conflict with declarations from Vector, making the lookups ambiguous. The uses that suffer from the ambiguity have assignment/comparison with very generic other arguments, e.g. front != 0p.

Query Language

query: TracLinks and the [[TicketQuery]] macro both use a mini “query language” for specifying query filters. Basically, the filters are separated by ampersands (&). Each filter then consists of the ticket field name, an operator, and one or more values. More than one value are separated by a pipe (|), meaning that the filter matches any of the values. To include a literal & or | in a value, escape the character with a backslash (\).

The available operators are:

= the field content exactly matches one of the values
~= the field content contains one or more of the values
^= the field content starts with one of the values
$= the field content ends with one of the values

All of these operators can also be negated:

!= the field content matches none of the values
!~= the field content does not contain any of the values
!^= the field content does not start with any of the values
!$= the field content does not end with any of the values

The date fields created and modified can be constrained by using the = operator and specifying a value containing two dates separated by two dots (..). Either end of the date range can be left empty, meaning that the corresponding end of the range is open. The date parser understands a few natural date specifications like "3 weeks ago", "last month" and "now", as well as Bugzilla-style date specifications like "1d", "2w", "3m" or "4y" for 1 day, 2 weeks, 3 months and 4 years, respectively. Spaces in date specifications can be left out to avoid having to quote the query string.

created=2007-01-01..2008-01-01 query tickets created in 2007
created=lastmonth..thismonth query tickets created during the previous month
modified=1weekago.. query tickets that have been modified in the last week
modified=..30daysago query tickets that have been inactive for the last 30 days
