Error updating custom field that has template

External issue:


I have added an Integer Custom Field for Issues with a simple Custom Field Template:

[da@home extended_fields$]$ cat app/views/custom_values/int/_testinteger.html.erb
Test: <%= custom_field.value.to_s %>

It works great to show it:

TestInteger:    Test: 2

But when I try to change it, I’m greeted with:

The page you were trying to access doesn't exist or has been removed.

And this is generated in the logs:

If I remove the custom field template (_testinteger.html.erb) everything works again.

I am using these versions:

  Redmine version                          2.1.2.stable
  Ruby version                             1.8.7 (i686-darwin9.2.1)
  Rails version                            3.2.8
  Environment                              production
  Database adapter                         MySQL
Redmine plugins:
  extended_fields                          0.2.0b

So what am I doing wrong? Why can’t I change the values for the custom fields when I have added custom field templates?

Please try adding also app/views/custom_values/int/_testinteger.text.erb with the same content and tell me if it works.

#2 Updated by apan loco over 9 years ago

This indeed fixes the issue.

I have the same problem if I update a Custom Field that is of one of the new types, more specifically “Project”. So just to test I also tried putting a _project.text.erb besides _project.html.erb and that also worked.

#3 Updated by Andriy Lesyuk over 9 years ago

Yeah... You just confirmed my assumption: When you update Redmine sends email in text or html+text format. And there is no *.text.erb template for “templated” custom fields... So the workaround is to add such templates.

P.S. Will need some time to fix this issue (have also work on other projects). Please use the workaround currently.
