Description

If someone changes Description of an issue, this action isn't shown on Activity page of the project. I think, this should be, as description change is a very important thing.

History

#1 Updated by Mischa The Evil almost 10 years ago

  • Tracker changed from Defect to Feature
  • Subject changed from Description change isn't shown on Activity page to Show issue description change on the Activity view
  • Category set to Issues
Currently, issue related journals appear on the activity view only when:
  • a new issue has been created;
  • the status of an issue has been changed / the given issue has been closed (because this only occurs due to a change of its status, but is rendered with a different icon to distinguish an issue closure from an ordinary status change);
  • a note to the issue has been added (obviously this doesn't include "notes", auto-generated by Redmine, which only contains issue property change history).

So, since the issue description is an issue property not related to the issue status, changing it, does not trigger a new journal. That is at the moment imho the expected behavior. In that perspective I think this is more a feature request than that it is a defect.

If we show note's adding on activity page, then we must show description change on the page too. Because description change from my perspective even more important than note's adding.

I've created a patch against trunk. All tests are running fine.

When the description of an issue is changed an email notification is sent out to watchers and a note is added. Only the project's activity page does not record the change. Isn't that a defect?
