Patch #parent_issue_id to return ISSUE-X (#ISSUE-4)


#1 Updated by Vanessa GATEFAIT PERROUD over 6 years ago

Redmine waits for the parent id, not an alias created by Issue-id plugin. So you have to change alias for parent Id. You can now save issue.

make Redmine work with such IDs will be great.

#2 Updated by Mateusz Zająkała about 6 years ago

How exactly can you change the alias for parent id? if I enable issue-id on my project (assign project identifier) then all issues are identified only by project-specific ID, I don’t see any way to reference them by any other means.

Any suggestion will be appreciated, other than that issue-id is wonderful work and great plugin!

UPDATE: I can locate the original numeric ID by using context menu on an issue and checking the URL (chich contains object id), then using this original ID in the “Parent Task” field and it does help - but this is very cumbersome...
