Thank you for the feedback. I'll keep this as-is on our install and keep playing with the general solution.

Oh, I see. I think I explored that but got stuck trying to find an AphrontRequest object, but now I see that could come from $this->controller.

I've written a patch to make this work for the project sidebar nav for my organization's install. I don't want to take up your time with it if it's not helpful, but let me know if you'd like me to push a diff.

Heh, that was going to be my suggestion in the original discourse post, but I figured it was too simplistic. Glad to hear we're on the same page. Thanks everyone!

P2028 is a really quick bookmarklet that will pull the content of a given Phriction document and insert it into the current Phriction edit page's textarea. Hopefully it'll save a few clicks for those of us who write lots of pages with a similar structure.

rfreebern added a comment to T12012: Diffusion doesn't handle non-bare hosted git repos.

It's fine to consider it not a bug. Mainly I wanted to provide the info that it doesn't work for documentation purposes, in case anyone else runs into the same situation in the future. (We ran into this by trying to transition from a very old Phabricator installation to a new one with hosted repos, but with a legacy deployment setup that needs a non-bare repo copy, and didn't realize that Phabricator didn't fully support hosted non-bare repos.)

That's too bad. I've done some testing and realized that the repositories that are exhibiting this behavior are non-bare, and one older repository that is bare is fully up-to-date in Diffusion's UI. (All are git repositories.)

@adityar7 Were you ever able to resolve this? I'm seeing the same behavior on my installation, which we recently transplanted to a new server and converted its ancient file://-based repositories to hosted. My suspicion is that there's something not quite right with user permissions on the system, but /var/tmp/phd/log/daemons.log doesn't have anything useful.

rfreebern added a comment to T10350: Scripts to migrate old "points" fields and move projects beneath other projects.

Oh, one problem with that script: when you move all the subprojects or milestones out from under a parent, it doesn't set the parent's hasMilestones or hasSubprojects fields to 0 for you. That'll have to be done by hand in the database.

rfreebern added a comment to T10350: Scripts to migrate old "points" fields and move projects beneath other projects.

I'm in the position where I need to re-parent an existing hierarchy of projects, which isn't supported by @epriestley's move_beneath.php above. Rather than attempt to figure out everything involved in doing that (which I think is mostly messing with the various projects' path, pathKey, and depth fields, in case anyone wants to try) I threw this script together to move an existing subproject or milestone to root level, where it can then be moved using move_beneath.php.

I'd love it if I could just click on the "Blocked by" or "Blocks" label on a task and be taken to the Maniphest query for all the listed tasks.

It would be handy if subprojects and milestones would inherit some of their parent's settings (like icon, color, policies, and picture) by default.

@cmmata Configuring Custom Fields may help. In your installation, you'd navigate to /config/edit/maniphest.custom-field-definitions/ to edit the Maniphest custom field configuration.

rfreebern added a comment to T4427: Add formal task points.

I noticed today that the maniphest.points field doesn't appear in the Conduit output for e.g. maniphest.query. I can't find a task addressing this, but it would be very helpful (I have several scripts that used our auxiliary points field, but since migrating that to maniphest.points they don't work any more).

rfreebern added a comment to T10350: Scripts to migrate old "points" fields and move projects beneath other projects.

That 'int' requirement is definitely misleading, since the field supports fractional point values (which makes me happy, since we have .5-point tasks in our workflow).

We've been using our own custom points field for a couple years now. Is there/could there be a plan to ease migration to the new formalized points system? (a bin script would be fine).

rfreebern added a comment to T4267: Support alias accounts.

We've run into a situation where this would be useful in my organization. One person's name has changed recently, but our only option to reflect that in Phabricator is to update their username and thereby disassociate all their past activity. Being able to update the username but add the old username as an alias would solve the issue.

In lieu of waiting for a fix to the official phabot, if you're feeling adventurous, I wrote a Phabricator plugin for my open-source IRC bot. My team uses it 24/7 and it meets our needs.

We're using this as part of our development workflow now and it's nice. It would be nice if it made use of our phpunit.xml configuration, but we can work around that for now. I hope this lands on master soon.

rfreebern added a comment to T4100: Support query parameterization in typeaheads.

Object aliases could also be useful for the case where team members have shifting roles, and you want to assign tasks to e.g. #triagenurse or #tester without having to look up who's currently performing that role.

rfreebern added a comment to T4100: Support query parameterization in typeaheads.

I'm interested in using project hashtags as parameters without them autoresolving. We use the project-per-sprint workflow, and the current sprint is always tagged #current, but there's no way for me to create saved searches where that hashtag is resolved at runtime instead of compile time.
