Search Open Issues before Creating New Issue

Added by David B over 6 years ago

Does anyone know of a plugin which displays possible issue matches when creating a new issue? I want to do this to prevent the chances of duplicate issues being created for similar problems.

I've just created an issue to see if this might be put into the development plan. However, I imagine it would be something that a plugin would be more useful for.

it appears that my issue is a duplicate of a previous issue (go figure).

http://www.redmine.org/issues/5840

However, I was wondering if it's possible to integrate the code dups.js into a redmine install and it work? If so, how?

I've created a patch file to integrate the provided dups.js into the Redmine core in issue #5840 .note-13.

We started working on a plugin to enhance Redmine with that kind of functionality, and I just discovered this thread. The plugin is currently work in progress, but it works with quite the same principle as what is described in this thread.
You can find it here: https://github.com/abahgat/redmine_didyoumean

We still have to improve the issue search a bit, so if anyone wants to help, we would really appreciate that.
