Description

There ought to be an easy way to reassign a bulk of issues. For instance: if someone is to take over someone else's bugs; someone is taking on a task that has many bugs marked "related"; someone has a personal issue and needs to drop most of their bugs; etc.

You can do it via right mouse click on issues list. Just select needed issues and use context menu to batch process.

This does not work in IE 9, at least...

It works for me in IE9, could you describe all steps what you doing?

  • Click a task's checkbox.
  • Right-click a task anywhere but on its checkbox.
  • Browser context menu shows up.

Please, look at the flash movie in attachment. Try in other browsers (Firefox). Does IE's show javascript error?

No, I see no errors. Also, only the first row clicked changes color. I do however see the Loading box pop up very briefly.

As for Mozilla, it works intermittently in my installed Seamonkey: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.16pre) Gecko/20101115 SeaMonkey/2.0.11pre. It seems that, sometimes, checking a box unchecks all currently selected checkboxes. This is worse than not giving the menu, as you can't tell when it will happen.

And, as mentioned in #441, basic functionality ought to not rely upon JavaScript, especially for something like illumos where there's a fair chance that someone doesn't have a GUI browser handy in the event that they need to do some bug maintenance while in the midst of doing some tests against changes to their local illumos-gate or whatever.

Maybe you have popup blocker?

Just the browser defaults. In any case, it does not work. There needs to be a non-Javascript solution, anyhow, for those times that developers are stuck at a point when they can't start X due to breaking something. ;)

Also, a popup blocker would likely not cause the checkboxes to all deselect at random...

Last chance, help you via TeamViewer... I cannot see another way :)

About non-javascript.
It make sense to make what you said about it. But I don't see that redmine develop in this direction, I think it will more javascript-ly in future versions, and if we really whant refuse from javascript/ajax - we should refuse from Redmine.

I think that javascript is no so big trouble. Maybe we will have few users, that will have trouble like you. But I think we could solve it. I think it is ease than refuse from Redmine.

It should be possible to have basic functionality via a text type UI (e.g. Lynx, or somesuch) - this may be necessary for accessibility rules.

I hope that we can figure out how to do this with redmine, if possible.

I think we can fix redmine to work via lynx. What includes in "basic functionality"? I think this is:
- login
- open issue
- update issue (reassing, comment)
what else?
