Target version:-


Currently, when a project is copied (using 'copy' link in the Administration view), the issues are copied, but the statuses of the issues are not: all issues end up in the default New status. This is undesirable: issues that are closed, etc in the source project should retain their status in the copied project. The proposed one-liner patch implements this.

Assigning to the author of the copy functionality.

Copy issue status on project copy (#3877).


#1 Updated by Eric Davis over 12 years ago

  • Status changed from New to 7

I might not be able to use this patch because that method (Issue#copy_from) is used by other parts of Redmine also. If I can't change the status there I could put something similar into Project#copy, which would have a similar result.

Thanks for looking into this.

I defer to your judgement, but shouldn't Issue#copy_from copy the status regardless of where it is called from? Seems like code that requires a specific status on issues it copies should ensure the condition is satisfied by simply setting it.

  • Status changed from 7 to Closed

Actually, there was no side effect. #copy_from was used in IssuesController#new but the issue status was set after this call. Added a test that ensure that issue status is now copied.
Change committed in r3075.
