Complete move of artifacts
The work was started in the previous release and is now completed with the two last remaining fields covered: file attachments and artifact links.
So given two trackers with the same shape, trackers’ administrators can move artifacts, keeping all their values, history and, artifact ids. It’s a common scenario for people using Tuleap for HelpDesk, reporting a bug in the appropriate tracker/project tend to be tedious. With the ability to move artifacts, you can now easily setup a central “report everything here” tracker and then the triage team will move the issue in the appropriate location.
Pull Requests permissions
When a team is using a fork based workflow for Pull Requests (PR), every so often, PR authors get stuck because they need to update the title or the description but it is forbidden. The permission system was designed to allow user with write permissions on the target repository to modify the PRs. However, PR can be used as a gating system, precisely to avoid granting write permissions to contributors. Hence we lifted the constraint and PR authors can now update their titles and descriptions.
Import issues from Jira to one single Tuleap tracker
Jira and Tuleap are different beasts, especially when it comes to data model. While Jira is ultimately one single “database” of things (issues) with various types (“bug”, “task”, …) that have different views, Tuleap consider that each issue type has it’s own “database” (ie. a tracker).
When running an import from Jira to Tuleap, we made the choice of breaking down issue types in different Tuleap trackers (one for Bugs, one for Tasks, etc). A choice that works well in term of data and that lead to an interesting finding: some Jira people are very used to “multi issue types” workflow. In this situation, having one tracker per issue type makes things more complex.
So we introduced the ability to choose, at import time, whether the issues types should be merged in a single big tracker or allocated in one tracker per issue type. This can be useful, for instance, for people heavily relying on multi issue types boards.
Of course, there is no one size that fits all, so it’s really a matter of taste and we encourage you to try it out. Documentation is here.
