Project copy does not copy custom field settings
|Assignee:||Jean-Philippe Lang||% Done:|
When making a project copy by going to /redmine/projects/template/copy custom field check boxes on the new project form are not set, all are unchecked. After project copy all custom field values are lost.

No, this is not expected behavior. I do have a project setup and want to use it as template. I do have chosen what trackers and custom field I want to use. I do have some issues created that do have values in custom field.
When I make a project copy all previously chosen custom fields are not checked on the new project form, if I proceed with copy, custom fields are to setup correctly and values for issues are not copied at all.
I would expect custom fields to be pre-selected in the same way as trackers are. Take a look in attached picture. Project settings on the left, project copy form on the right. Trackers are checked correctly, custom fields are not.
To copy my project template I need to have to web browsers open and manually set custom fields in the same way as in project setting. This is not expected.

So, I tried to track it down and here are some observations.
The r1592 has changed how custom fields are handled.
In /app/views/projects/_form.html.erb a line determining if custom field checkbox should be checked has been changed to use
@project.all_issue_custom_fields. Today the code looks like this:
<%= check_box_tag 'project[issue_custom_field_ids]', custom_field.id, (@project.all_issue_custom_fields.include? custom_field), :disabled => (custom_field.is_for_all? ? "disabled" : nil), :id => nil %>
It seems that when project is copied the
@project.all_issue_custom_fields returns nothing. The underlying SQL looks like this:
SELECT `custom_fields`.* FROM `custom_fields` WHERE `custom_fields`.`type` IN ('IssueCustomField') AND (is_for_all = 1 OR id IN (SELECT DISTINCT cfp.custom_field_id FROM custom_fields_projects cfp WHERE cfp.project_id = NULL)) ORDER BY `custom_fields`.`position` ASC
Notice that it checks for
cfp.project_id = NULL, this seems to be wrong and suggests that at the time when
@project.all_issue_custom_fields is called, the
@project.id is not set.
The r11916 has changed the
@project.all_issue_custom_fields to return a scope and include project id in WHERE causing the problem.
