TicketQuery Wiki Macro

The TicketQuery macro lets you display information on tickets within wiki pages. The query language used by the [[TicketQuery]] macro is described in TracQuery page.



Wiki macro listing tickets that match certain criteria.

This macro accepts a comma-separated list of keyed parameters, in the form "key=value".

If the key is the name of a field, the value must use the syntax of a filter specifier as defined in TracQuery#QueryLanguage. Note that this is not the same as the simplified URL syntax used for query: links starting with a ? character. Commas (,) can be included in field values by escaping them with a backslash (\).

Groups of field constraints to be OR-ed together can be separated by a literal or argument.

In addition to filters, several other named parameters can be used to control how the results are presented. All of them are optional.

The format parameter determines how the list of tickets is presented:

  • list -- the default presentation is to list the ticket ID next to the summary, with each ticket on a separate line.
  • compact -- the tickets are presented as a comma-separated list of ticket IDs.
  • count -- only the count of matching tickets is displayed
  • rawcount -- only the count of matching tickets is displayed, not even with a link to the corresponding query (since 1.1.1)
  • table -- a view similar to the custom query view (but without the controls)
  • progress -- a view similar to the milestone progress bars

The max parameter can be used to limit the number of tickets shown (defaults to 0, i.e. no maximum).

The order parameter sets the field used for ordering tickets (defaults to id).

The desc parameter indicates whether the order of the tickets should be reversed (defaults to false).

The group parameter sets the field used for grouping tickets (defaults to not being set).

The groupdesc parameter indicates whether the natural display order of the groups should be reversed (defaults to false).

The verbose parameter can be set to a true value in order to get the description for the listed tickets. For table format only. deprecated in favor of the rows parameter

The rows parameter can be used to specify which field(s) should be viewed as a row, e.g. rows=description|summary

The col parameter can be used to specify which fields should be viewed as columns. For table format only.

For compatibility with Trac 0.10, if there's a last positional parameter given to the macro, it will be used to specify the format. Also, using "&" as a field separator still works (except for order) but is deprecated.

Using the [[TicketQuery]] Macro

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



This is displayed as:

Attempt recovery from XML parse errors in PGIP main loop
undo sometimes incorrectly tries to undo a larger container than is appropriate
Failed initialization of *trace* buffer (xemacs-21.4.x)
Failed initialization of *trace* buffer (xemacs-21.4.x)
Carbon Emacs: no colouring of variables in Isabelle output
x-symbol fails in Carbon Emacs
Carbon Emacs: strange unicode abbreviations
assert command etc.: strange movement of point
delete would be nice if it didn't expant symbols
Splash buffer occupies half the frame
Unwanted kill-buffer at startup
C-c C-a h is undefined
Report Emacs bug (was: Unicode tokens "Reveal Control/Symbol Tokens" reveals hidden text in script buffer)
Odd progress markers in text mode
defpacustom and undo
unexpected cursor position after stepping through command with terminator at line ending
Emacs 24 and long inputs
Proof General stalls on long Ltac (Coq)
coqgeneral 4.3pre130327 does not compile with Emacs 24.3

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. This also displays the link and description of a single ticket:


This is displayed as:

No results

A more compact representation without the ticket summaries is:

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

This is displayed as:

#92, #157, #185, #186, #203, #205, #212, #283, #319, #325, #329, #337, #350, #390, #427, #433, #442, #447, #469

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:


A graphical use of the macro is with the format=progress attribute:


For example for one of the upcoming milestones, bars are shown by ticket type:
