#1692 enhancement rgrp ckan-v1.7 closed wontfix Add image attribute to Dataset and Group

Add image attribute for Dataset and Group which would be shown in prominent place.

For dataset this could be a relevant image and for Group this would be more of a logo.

I think this has very high value from a UX point of view.


  • Do we need to support uploading and storing the image (or do users store elsewhere)
    • Could use something like transloadit service
    • Use our own storage facility with a reserved directory
  • Do we need to do resizing etc?
    • Maybe. Perhaps can prefer this in reasonably small size and then just size down in css for thumbnails etc.

#1784 enhancement seanh seanh ckan-v1.7 closed wontfix Links to renamed objects break

The HTML templates for some activity stream activities link to objects (packages, resources, etc.) by their names, e.g. /dataset/foo, but if the object has since been renamed then the link will be broken.

Possible solutions are to use the object ID to find its current name at rendering time and link to that, or link to the object by ID rather than by name.

Linking by ID is both simpler to implement and better. Links by ID are ugly, but they are permanent and don't break when an object is renamed. We should be using links by ID everywhere on CKAN, so that when third-party sites copy-paste our URLs and link to us, their links don't break later.

Fixing this means fixing the dataset_link(), resource_link(), group_link() etc. functions in ckan/lib/helpers.py which will change the links everywhere in CKAN where those functions are used to link to objects (which should be everywhere where we link to an object).

If we want to have nice looking by-name URLs and what them to be permanent, then we need to change CKAN so that objects cannot be renamed.

#2230 refactor seanh ckan-v1.7 closed fixed Tidy up of search facets code duplication

Because of a clash between two development branches there is some duplication of code to do with code facets (note: at the time of writing the code duplication exists only on the feature-1821-multilingual-extension branch, but this will be merged into master at some point):

The package_search() function is adding the search facets to the search results twice with two different data structures, with keys "facets" and "new_facets". It should be reduced to just the new facets (with the key changed to "facets").

Also the group and package controllers are adding both facets and new_facets to the context, should be new_facets only (but renamed to facets).

The facet_items() function in helpers.py should be removed, it uses the old facets structure and shouldn't be needed anymore with the new facets structure.

In facets.html, facet_sidebar() should be removed as it uses the old facets structure and facet_div() implements the same functionality but uses the new facets.

In facets.html, facet_list_items() will have to be updated to not use the facet_items() helper and to use the new facets structure instead.

Anywhere that "new_facets" appears it will have to be changed to "facets" (e.g. in the ckanext/multilingual/plugin.py.

This is the merge commit that introduced the duplication: https://github.com/okfn/ckan/commit/1153aa876f54c22289e460aeececea22d1d4d51d

This is the earlier commit where the search facets were refactored: https://github.com/okfn/ckan/commit/3970e52008b75933fda1be1d488bed2578d98c9c

#2288 defect seanh ckan-v1.7 closed wontfix Fix i18n of strings on auth group add/edit pages

There are a couple of strings on the authorization group add/edit form that are not being translated:

"Name: Please enter a value" (error message when you try to add an auth group with no name)

"User name"

"Save" button

The form seems to be built using FormBuilder?. See ckan/forms/authorizationgroup.py, builder.set_displayed_fields()

#2332 enhancement amercader rgrp ckan-v1.7 closed fixed Fixes for v1.7 release

A place to list crucial fixes for v1.7 release:

Related extension:

All not complete now moved to #2347

  • Related Item has comments on index page (they should not show up here -- why is this happening!)
  • Related item should be to left of history (history could in fact move to RHS)
    • What about losing icons since we duplicate for related item
  • Related item plus sign is very poorly aligned within box
    • Add related items should be in drop down like for resources (?) to make it easy to add items
    • Hover should show a title that gives some information about what related are (not at all clear)
  • Related item only includes App, Idea, Visualization but not API | Post | Paper | News Article options as in original ticket #2204

Search results:

  • #2331 - search should add not or
  • Search results should be similar across group pages and normal search results (suggest adopting group page style)
    • Search results resource link should link to resource page rather than url for that resource
    • Suggest we could tidy this a bit (e.g. have resources in mini-sidebar of search result ...?)

Data viewer:

a) Data Viewer checks if datastore is empty nad falls back to ther options if emtpy b) DataStore? enabled is off by default and only turned on either explicitly by user or by DataStorer? on successful store ...

  • (? not really a fix) Give out a link as well as embed instructions (I often want to link to the explorer in a given state)
    • Should this link to the resource page or to a dedicated viewer page - cf # 2322 (resource sub-urls like /download, /api ...)
    • Do #2322 ...
  • Decent powered by icon for the Embed for the DataHub? (make this text customizable and allow html ...)
  • Embed link uses uuid rather than dataset name (this goes to perma-url question ...)
  • Data viewer embed url includes all the resource info

Dataset page:

  • Put home page link somewhere more prominent (e.g. the top of the sidebar)
  • Put author more prominent (at top right)
  • (? - new work) List CKAN owners at top right in sidebar
  • Make resources stand out more
  • Rename resources tab and heading to Data & Resources

Dataset edit and create:

  • Corrections to dataset creation form for v1.7 - #2317
  • Better auto-complete for groups on dataset edit/new page - #2319
    • Remove groups box and replace with tags on the new page (or is this needed for organizations stuff?)
  • Description / notes text area is not wide enough.
    • Should also be larger on edit page
  • Problem with date instructions on add/edit resource: "Dates are in ISO Format — eg. 2012-12-25 or %c2010-05-31T14:30%d."
  • Add/edit resource: new code to auto-check urls being added is great but from UX point of view has draw back that (esp on low speed connections) page just seems to hang for a long time with nothing happening. I wonder if either
    • A) this could happen after resource created on form (e.g. it creates, and then an overlay comes up saying: checking url and gathering url information or similar)
    • Or B) we still do this before creating new resource form on page but we still should show something like a spinner and some info like "checking url and gathering url info ...)

Resource view:

  • Do not show no description in no description (just show dataset info)


  • Fix spacing above page title (i.e. dataset title etc)
  • Bootstrap 2.0.2 (@zephod was *supposed* to have done this) - should be trivial and gives important bugfixes for data viewer
  • Fix subnav width on resources pages (does not extend all the way to the right like it should)
  • Fix spacing of top menu and search box (do not look right)
  • Group pages:


  • Ensure that we out-of-the-box config for CKAN has (#2388):
    • Only logged in users able to create
    • Creation permissions have only creators able to update a dataset

Deployments (without deployment we cannot know these are working):

  • Social extension
  • Analytics

If a user enters a url with no protocol (eg: www.data.gov.uk) in the 'url' field of a dataset, a broken link is created on the view page.

CKAN should probably either put in a http:// if no protocol is given, or validation should fail.

#1471 enhancement seanh dread ckan-v1.8 closed fixed Be compatible with new ubuntu release in April

Nils flagged up that Ubuntu launches another LTS in April which we should probably move to. This ticket is to get the ball rolling with what we do. We can always include in our package the exact package versions of deps that we want, but it is good to be in line with the release if possible.

Here's how to see the packages included with it: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=python-pylons&searchon=names&suite=all&section=all

Pylons 0.9.7 -> 1.0-2 Requires a small amount of work SQLAlchemy 0.7.3-2 OK Babel 0.9.6-1 OK Genshi 0.6-2 Perfect

Another alternative is to move to another web framework, especially minding that Pylons is not being further developed.

#1678 enhancement amercader amercader ckan-v1.8 closed fixed Make synchronous search the default behaviour

Right now you need to explicitly load the synchronous_search plugin in your ini file, when this is probably the behaviour that all users expect by default. We could keep a config flag to deactivate it, but synchronous search should be the default behaviour.

#1732 enhancement johnglover seanh ckan-v1.8 closed fixed Update CKAN's search for taxonomies

Initially we'll just add all tags from all vocabularies into the existing tags search facet (this should happen automatically). Later we want to enable templates to use separate search facets for different vocabularies.

Also need to make sure that search terms are matched against the texts of the tag names themselves (should happen already) and maybe also against the texts of the vocabulary names?

#2344 enhancement seanh seanh ckan-v1.8 closed duplicate Get jenkins install script into CKAN core

After checking out a commit to test from CKAN's GitHub?, Jenkins runs a script that creates a new virtual environment and installs CKAN and its dependencies into it, and does some other necessary tasks. Jenkins then runs the tests in this virtualenv.

The install script may have to change from one commit to the next as CKAN's install instructions change, so it would be good if the script was shipped in CKAN core. That way Jenkins will run different versions of the script depending on which commit it's testing and if the tests fail because the script is wrong then that's actually a bug that needs to be fixed in CKAN core. Also the CKAN install instructions could be simplified a lot by just having users run this script instead of doing each step by hand.

#2347 enhancement icmurray ross ckan-v1.8 closed fixed Related stuff dashboard and changes

Some additions to the related stuff functionality to make it more useful post the 1.7 release.

[x] Edit item (after checking auth)

[x] My related things on my user page

[x] Show user created related things on the users' page with links direct to the related page of that dataset. {0.5d}

[x] Related stuff usage counts { 1d }

Record the number of times the link for a related item is clicked. This is likely to mean that the link fires to call CKAN and then redirects to the actual URL.

[x] Un-attached related items {0.25d}

Allow related items to be created without being attached to datasets. This may mean that the dataset field is optional in the API.

[ ] Dashboard for related

A dashboard for related items, site-wide (not package specific) and orderable by date, views, {rating}, popularity of the dataset. Would be useful (possibly) for site-admin to mark one or more as 'featured'

[x] Dashboard + Controller (Related) {1d}

[x] Ordering at logic layer (date, views, rating, popularity of package, featured) {1d}

[x] date [x] views [x] featured

[x] 'Featured' related item with mechanism to fetch it. {0.5d}

[ ] UI within dashboard for sysadmins to check/uncheck feature status {0.5d}

[x] Changing auth for related.

Currently auth is based on deletion being possible by dataset owner and the related owner but it may be that a lot of the auth for related items should be configured to have more restrictive auth.

[x] Implement auth changes for publisher auth profile. { 0.5d }

[x] General issues

[x] Serverside validation of URLs

[x] Activity updates

[x] Make optional

[x] Related item only includes App, Idea, Visualization but not API | Post | Paper | News Article options as in original ticket #2204

[ ] UI Changes

[ ] General tidy up, fix form etc (icon for menu bar)

[ ] Highlight featured items py:if="related.featured"

[ ] Show either view count or popularity ${ related.view_count }

[ ] A user's related items should be on their home page

[ ] Related item plus sign is very poorly aligned within box

[ ] Add related items should be in drop down like for resources (?) to make it easy to add items

[ ] Hover should show a title that gives some information about what related are (not at all clear)

"Apps, Ideas, Visualization and other material related to this dataset"

[x] Related is a pretty terrible name in the UI - much better to have it called Apps, Ideas etc (perhaps title tag could even give more details e.g. "Apps, Ideas, Visualization and other material related to this dataset") -- btw i thought this was in #2332 but realize it wasn't (apologies for that!)

  • Went with Apps & Ideas (for now)

[x] Documentation, documentation, documentation - AFAICT I can't see anything in v1.7 or master docs. I imagine this would be a short section like http://docs.ckan.org/en/ckan-1.7/commenting.html (and probably coming right after that in the ToC) which says

  • What it does
  • How to enable (and perhaps includes a nice-screenshot!)
  • How to customize (e.g. can one customize the list of options of things one can create (e.g. can I set it to just be app and idea or ...)
  • Also liase with Mark W re a blog post about this from the user perspective (a screenshot walkthrough ...)

[ ] Clearly mark the old extension as deprecated from v1.7 forward: https://github.com/okfn/ckanext-apps (I just met someone last week who was working on integrating this and had no idea it was replaced by something better in v1.7)

#2428 enhancement seanh seanh ckan-v1.8 closed fixed Reduce/sort out CKAN's dependencies

This ticket depends on #2423, #2424, #2425, #2426 and #2427.

  • Try to remove as many of CKAN's dependencies as possible
  • Try to update as many of the remaining ones as possible
  • Try to get rid of some dependencies that are fetched from random hg or git servers instead of pypi
  • Then try to get the order of deps in the requirements files right so that you end up with the right versions of everything
  • Each module in the dependencies file should specify the exact version, to protect us from changes due to them upgrading versions under us and breaking things or changing their own deps
  • Consider shipping dependencies with ckan instead of pip installing them?
  • This is related to moving CKAN to Ubuntu 12.04
  • Add a test case that runs pip freeze and tests that all the right versions of deps are installed?

#2500 defect ross icmurray ckan-v1.8 closed fixed get_action should raise an exception if the action requested doesn't exist

Original bug report:

Hi CKAN devs,

Can I request that ckan.logic.get_action raises an exception if the action requested doesn't exist?

Two of us had a frustrating time tracking down an exception this morning. It's difficult when the exception is raised in python in a template because you don't get a line number. The problem was caused by a new logic function being added to another extension, and we hadn't updated the code there. So if get_action raised an proper exception rather than silently returning None then I think we'd have found the problem quicker.

I'd write the code for this, but as I understand that the new system would require a ticket, branch, pull request, code review, merge. It seems a lot to do for such a small thing.

#2605 enhancement ross ross ckan-v1.8 closed fixed Problem with user.get_groups

From DR at DGU

Basically get_groups() appears to cache its results, but this falls down when subsequent calls are in a different session. We get this when saving a dataset. get_groups() first gets called in the controller when it is trying to work out what permissions the user has. It later gets called, and by this time c.userobj is detached, so get_groups() fails.

I'm working around this by refreshing c.userobj (from c.user) before calling get_groups(), but I wonder if the get_groups caching could detect the detached session and bypass the cache in this case?
