Optional Issue Description

Added by Patrick Oppenlander over 9 years ago

Hi guys, first of all, great job on Redmine!!

Is there an option somewhere to make the "Description" field of an issue optional? Sometimes the title contains enough information to not require a description.

Thanks,

-Patrick

Hey Patrick,

you can try to disable the "required"-behaviour of the description field by removing it from the following line in app/models/issue.rb:

from:

validates_presence_of :subject, :description, :priority, :project, :tracker, :author, :status

to:

validates_presence_of :subject, :priority, :project, :tracker, :author, :status

I don't think that there is an built-in-option for doing that.

Best,
Martin

See Issue #1014, I created a patch to make description optional but it hasn't been added to the codebase yet.
