Bug-Report:

When using group (eg. per project) function and exorting, i only get the tickets from the first group, but no more.

RE: XLS export plugin - Added by Felix Friedrich about 4 years ago

Hello,

I have a small problem with the plugin. I have a role defined, which is not allowd to see the spent time on tickets. But if I make an xls export of a list of tickets there is a column with the spent time, thus a person who is not allowed to see the spent time can manage to see it by exporting list of tickets to a xls file.

Would it be possible to implement this kind of permissions?

Best regards...

Felix

RE: XLS export plugin - Added by Mihail Mustafin about 4 years ago

Hi, Vitaly! I recently switched to Redmine 1.0.3 ruby version 1.8.7. XLS export plugin version 009 (and earlier) shows Internal error when trying to upload the report. Please tell me that this can be done?
Have you thought about extending the plugin to the list of projects?
Thank you.
Привет, Виталий! Я недавно перешел на Redmine 1.0.3 ruby version 1.8.7. XLS export plugin version 009 (и ранние версии) показывает Internal error при попытке выгрузить отчет. Пожалуйста, подскажите что с этим можно сделать?
Вы не думали о распространении действия плагина на список проектов ?
спасибо вам.

Felix, i do check for permission when exporting time entries, thus if the person which does not have permission to view time entries on the project tries to export time column, that column would be empty.

XLS export plugin version 009 (and earlier) shows Internal error when trying to upload the report.

Mihail, are you using proper version of 009 plugin (redmine_xls_export_v009_101_only.zip)? If so, can you please post me logs with Internal error so i will be able to see what's going on?

Terrence, can you check if you have option Split by grouping criteria enabled? In this case each group will be in the separate XLS sheet inside file

I just noticed that the group feature is done by seperating on sheets in one excel file. I overlooked thios the first time. So there is no bug, its perfectly working! Tx for help!

I've created Czech locale, find it attached to this post.

Thanks for a good plugin. Would you consider putting it into official Redmine plugin repository?

Sure, no problem - just tell me how to do it. I've asked Jean-Philippe about the way one can get theirs plugins listed on plugins page some time ago, but got no answer so far.

RE: XLS export plugin - Added by Vitaly Klimov almost 4 years ago

Version 0.1.0

  • From now on plugin compatible only with Redmine 1.0.1 or higher.
  • Links to XLS export moved to issues index hook so index.rhtml not modified by plugin, thus removing conflicts with plugins which modified index.rhtml.
  • Plugin adds two links with 'XLS export' prefix at the bottom of the page under 'Also available in' bar.

RE: XLS export plugin - Added by Ivan Cenov almost 4 years ago

Hi,

I am translating the plugin to Bulgarian. What is the meaning of

label_plugin_xlse_issues_limit: "Overwrite export limit" 
and what is the context it is used in?

There is a global setting in Redmine which controls how many issues you can export at once. This option allows you override this value.

RE: XLS export plugin - Added by Ivan Cenov almost 4 years ago

Here is attached Bulgarian translation.

P.S. en.yml. What about

label_plugin_xlse_issues_limit: "Overwrite export limit" 
compared to
label_plugin_xlse_issues_limit: "Override export limit" 
?
I think the latter is more suitable, by my opinion.

Regards,
Ivan
