Defect #1980

silent failure when uploading file when no version specified

If I attempt to add a new file under the 'files' tab and I do not specify a version, then the operation appears to succeed, but the file is not shown in the file listing. If after adding a version in the settings tab, then selecting it while adding the file, then I get the expected behavior.

This issue is against the silent failure of the upload. Redmine should show an error when trying to upload a file without selecting the required version field.

This is probably, at least, related to #1053. Maybe it's even a duplicate of it, but I'm not sure...

#2 Updated by Andrew Stitt about 14 years ago

redmine version is svn trunk@r1921
database is postgres 8.1.8
os fedora-core 5
ruby 1.8.5 (2007-03-13 patchlevel 35) [i386-linux]
rails 2.1.0

A warning in the UI when the version field is not specified would be sufficient for my deployment.
On the other hand, there is no default version field for a project, I have to specify one for each project I create. If a new project had a default it would be harder to leave the field blank and would be more convenient.

In anycase, please mark a duplicate if applicable.
