Target version:3.2.0


This is a change I apply to most Redmine deployments but I never thought about posting it here before, until now.

Currently the issue link titles are roughly1 rendered as "issue.subject (issue.status.name)".
I propose to add the name of the tracker of the issue in front of the current text followed directly by a colon and a space.

Now Proposed
issue.subject (issue.status.name) issue.tracker.name: issue.subject (issue.status.name)

This can be done by changing source:/trunk/app/helpers/application_helper.rb@11784#L697 like:

Index: app/helpers/application_helper.rb
--- app/helpers/application_helper.rb   (revision 11784)

               anchor = comment_id ? "note-#{comment_id}" : nil
               link = link_to("##{oid}", {:only_path => only_path, :controller => 'issues', :action => 'show', :id => oid, :anchor => anchor},
                                         :class => issue.css_classes,
-                                        :title => "#{truncate(issue.subject, :length => 100)} (#{issue.status.name})")
+                                        :title => "#{issue.tracker.name}: #{truncate(issue.subject, :length => 100)} (#{issue.status.name})")
           when 'document'
             if document = Document.visible.find_by_id(oid)

1 the subject is actually truncated at first

Adds tracker name to Redmine issue link titles (#13946).


#1 Updated by Go MAEDA over 7 years ago

This is an updated patch against latest trunk (r14468).

#2 Updated by Mischa The Evil over 7 years ago

Actually, this change breaks some tests. The assertions don't expect the tracker name. I've modified them to reflect the new issue link title with tracker name and extracted an updated (svn) diff against source:/trunk@14471 which I'll attach here.

Thanks for updating this issue. Mischa.
