Defect #17446

Updated by Jan Niggemann ( team member) over 3 years ago


after adding a custom field to my time tracking, adding and editing time entries always fails _when this custom field has been filled_.
I've tried 2 different custom field, both lead to the exact same error:

* Custom field of type 'Integer', not mandatory, added to Spent Time
* Custom field of type 'Boolean', not mandatory (obviously), added to Spent Time

I can add the fields without any issue, and when I leave them empty, I can still add time entries, but when either (or both) custom field is filled, I get an 500 internal server error.

The error log shows the following details:

Redmine version 2.4.2.stable
Ruby version 1.9.3-p0 (2011-10-30) [x86_64-linux]
Rails version 3.2.16
Environment production
Database adapter Mysql2
Redmine plugins:
no plugin installed</pre>

Additional info:
* I am using the Dutch language version of Redmine
* I am using the A1 theme (

Since I installed Redmine from the default Ubuntu 12.04 repositories, it is not easy for me to upgrade to the latest version to test it there. I do have an older version of Redmine running on a different server (running redmine 1.3.2) and that instance has the exact same custom fields and it works like a charm.

Hoping someone can get this fixed! :)
