#160 enhancement dread rgrp v0.11 closed fixed Implement internal links in CKAN notes markup

Suggest form is: key:value (with optional space after ':'.

Keys would be for an object, i.e. 'package', 'tag', 'group'.

Becomes a link.

This would be implemented by implementing a 'Parser' or 'Processor' object which is run before markdown is done. Regex replace.

Cost: 4h

#2501 enhancement toby aron.carroll demo phase 1 closed fixed Implement three step dataset creation in demo site

New form should allow three steps.

  1. Add basic fields to create a dataset
  2. Add a data resource to the dataset (this can be repeated multiple times using "Save and add another"
  3. Add final metadata to the dataset.

It should be possible to jump backward through the steps by clicking the arrows at the top. Errors in fields should be validated for each step when the next button is clicked.

#263 enhancement johnbywater rgrp v1.1 closed fixed Improve and test openid login

At the moment the user has to figure out to login with providers -- this is not always obvious (e.g. google).

We could improve this with a small bit of javascript. As an example see: http://standalone.demo.civicrm.org/standalone/

Not sure exactly what library that is using (or if bespoke) so alternatives include (NB: we already use jquery):

In addition to implementing this we also need to test logging in with main providers: google, wordpress -- as we have had reports of it not working with e.g. wordpress (not sure if this testing can be automated really -- best hope would be selenium I think -- so OK if done by hand).

Cost: 3h (2h UI), (1h testing)

#269 enhancement rgrp dread closed fixed Improve gov package form

If the notes field could use a WYSIWYG editor with word cleanup this would really help users who may well be pasting in text from Word (and I guess may have been approved or written by someone else)

having auto-complete on tags would both make the system easier to use - and reduce the risk of synonymous tags being created inadvertently.

Does the department drop down options list interact with user permissions - so that users who only have rights to one department only see that option ?

Similarly for licenses - can this reduce to the set of allowed options for this user/

What level of validation is there on the fields?

#1076 enhancement johnlawrenceaspden rgrp ckan-v1.4 closed fixed Improve revision and package purge system

Purging Revisions

  • Delete button displayed on:
    • /revision/list
    • (/package/history)
      • /package/history is problematic because html does not allow nested forms and we already have form for doing diff/comparison.
    • /revision/{id}
  • Delete button submits to delete action on revision and changes revision state to 'deleted'.
    • undelete button now displayed and revisions are marked as deleted in some way (e.g. greyed out?)
  • Sysadmins then visit /ckan-admin/trash which lists all revisions with deleted state. There is a large button: "Empty trash" (irreversible). Click button purges all revisions with deleted state.

Purging Packages

  • Put into deleted state.
  • Listed on /ckan-admin/trash
  • Separate Empty trash button which deletes all associated revisions.
    • Should be separate from Empty trash for revisions

Current system

  • Single purge link on revision listing if a sysadmin which permanently purges the revision and all associated changes (without confirmation atm!)

#66 enhancement rgrp rgrp v0.10 closed fixed Improve user account UI
  1. Link at top should say "Your Account" when you are logged in
    • when not logged in should say: "Log in via openid"
    • Open Id info on /account/ should move to /account/login/ or be deleted
    • Going to /account/ when not logged in should redirect to /account/login/
  1. When logged in the basic account index page should not give generic information but should reflect fact you are logged in by:
  • Saying something like: "You are logged in as: ..."
  • Showing your apikey or a link to apikey
  • Giving you a logout link

We can think of a bunch of other stuff that could go on their (recent edits, packages you own etc) but these will be separate tickets.

#315 defect dread rgrp v1.1 closed fixed Improvements and fixes to csv dump
  1. Issues with quote in fields: http://lists.okfn.org/pipermail/ckan-discuss/2010-May/000240.html
  1. Issues with package resource serialization into csv table.

<quote> In the latest dump there were 116(!) sets of the three columns (“resource-[n]-url”, “resource-[n]-format”, and “resource-[n]-description”). However, these are an extract of the packed “resource” column and I’m not sure whether they’re needed. Also, they irritatingly don’t appear in order in the CSV serialisation. If the resource columns could be ordered in the file that would be great; if a second version without the unpacked resource data would be excellent. </quote>

#1163 enhancement rgrp rgrp ckan-backlog new Improvements to Storage Extension

Storage is now working but there are

  • Integrate with Resources (e.g. create a resource for each file upload and give option to associate with a package)
    • Should we introduce rule that files *not* associated with a Resource are periodically deleted?
  • Allow setting of a file name/path before upload
  • Allow for file overwriting/deleting etc (how should this work -- do we want to allow this sort of thing)
  • Integrate local file upload stuff in api/auth/*

Different Backend Issues

Local file store is rather different from 'remote' storage in various ways:

  • For remote you don't want to use many buckets as there are bucket limits while for local you want to. Should we there have a single path that users provide which we then partition differently for different backends.

#962 enhancement rgrp rgrp ckan-v1.4-sprint-5 closed fixed Improvements to data preview extension

Basic implementation done (and deployed):


However plenty to improve, e.g.

  • Support more formats (use external systems for preview?)
    • json (!)
    • html (trivial!)
    • sparql
    • ...
  • Do not display preview if no preview

Also suggest reworking to use external services rather than doing preview 'in house' (doing in house places heavy reliance on data proxy service and on converting data to a standard format).

  • Decent powered by icon for the Embed for the DataHub?? (make this text customizable and allow html ...)
    • Current icon and text looks really bad
  • Embed link uses uuid rather than dataset name (this goes to perma-url question ...)
  • Data viewer embed url includes all the resource info (not needed -- just url and backend info ...)
  • Embed extension urls do not respect original domain but instead use site_url (I'm guessing). E.g. datahub.io domain ends up with links to embed on thedatahub.org

#79 enhancement dread rgrp v0.10 closed fixed Improvements to package search

Several things:

  • Default package search (used e.g. on front page) should deal well with multiple items: "abc xyz" means search for both abc and xyz (as separate searches)
  • Should automatically display a list of matching tags in a line at top with number of associated packages
  • have an option to only search for fully open material (or openly licensed material ...)

Since we should be moving to a more sophisticated search solution anyway (to allow prioritisation etc) maybe we should cautious as to what we do now.

#888 enhancement johnglover rgrp ckan-sprint-2011-10-28 closed fixed Improvements to the dataproxy and the data API

First version of dataproxy and data API working (ticket:698) but have identified a variety of important improvements. (Should split these into sub-tickets ...):

For dataproxy:

  • Testing for dataproxy
    • Can start by using known good remote urls (moving forward could switch to providing/mocking these locally)
  • Remove content-lenght for csv requirement: just read the first x rows (up to some configurable maximum)
  • Google docs style row/column selections
  • Use the swiss library - https://bitbucket.org/okfn/swiss
    • Support google docs spreadsheets (format = service/gdocs/ccc or gdocs/ccc or gdocs/spreadsheet)
  • Handle redirects for content-length?
  • Ignore resource type if not recognized and fall-back to trying to identify from extension (or mime-type?)

For dataapi:

  • Ensure we pass on resource format as part of redirect i.e. /api/data/{id} -> {dataproxy}?url={resource-url}&type={resource-type}

#42 enhancement rgrp rgrp v0.6 closed fixed In WUI where List of Items to Display is Large Results should be Paged

As A


I Want To

View lists of items but not have too many on a page (as this leads to slow page loads and difficulty navigating the list). Where there are more items in the results of my action that can be fit on a single page the results should be 'paged' in some manner.


Main place this issue arises:

  • List of tags
  • List of packages
  • Repository history (/revision)

Should probably have no more than 50 (or so) items on a page. Obvious solution is for actions that return lists to have some kind of pageno parameter and then use this in controller to select what to display.

Install and document (step-by-step) CKAN (and dependencies, and extensions) onto VM on s031.okserver.org which has CentOS 6.2 installed. Paying particular attention to the fact that we won't have root access on the staging nor production servers, and so a) anything that requires root access must be documented carefully; and b) we want to be able to perform maintenance without being root.


We want to have non-root access to:

  • CKAN logs; (relevant) apache logs; qa process' logs; rdf cron logs
  • restarting CKAN
  • restarting qa processes
  • changing/disabling rdf cronjob
  • our database (through sql)
  • restarting solr

CKAN and Dependencies

  • CKAN installed from source
  • Required plugins: synchronous_search ecportal ecportal_form organizations multilingual_dataset multilingual_group multilingual_tag qa

Extra configuration

  • uploads
  • analytics (toby)
  • qa
  • rdf cron
  • caching
  • datastore

Things to remember

  • Use ckanext/multilingual/solr/schema.xml and stopword files
  • Use nginx as proxy.

#318 defect johnglover wwaites ckan-sprint-2011-10-28 closed fixed Insufficient validation of resource URIs

The CKAN instance on data.gov.uk serves invalid URIs out of its API.

For example the following can be found,


In this URI, the : and / characters after the ? in the query part are invalid according to section 3.4 of RFC2396

Also URIs are not stripped of whitespace at the end.

This causes problems when other software with a more correct interpretation of what a valid URI is attempts to consume data from CKAN. In this instance the Talis triplestore complains about such URIs.

"Be liberal in what you accept and conservative in what you send" would seem apt.


  • Validation of urls as part of form entry or data loading
    • Need to consider situation where this should happen out-of-band (i.e. we allow load even with invalid data and then flag bad dates in separate validation process). In general doubtful that we should do this here because url invalidity is such a big deal
  • This code should support analysis of existing data so we can go through existing database and find invalid urls
    • Also useful to have this so we can do out of band validation

Why: CMS are great at creating content and have very good editors and theme support ...

Previous work


  • deliverance: retheming on the fly


  1. Rewrite urls for proxying
  2. You need a theme to substitute into
  3. pylons

Extreme version:

  • 2 sources -> pylons/ckan app, cms
  • 1 theme source: ckan or cms

1 frontend/proxy app which re-themes everything

Owned by CKAN:

  • package/
  • tag/
  • group/
  • api/
  • /

Everything else proxied.

  • On dataset view page, add star rating after each resource view url. Probably similar to current format label after url.
  • Add star rating to resource view page, along with a way of displaying the reason for the rating and tips to improve. Should be unobtrusive.
  • Fix the table at http://thedatahub.org/qa/dataset/broken_resource_links - URLs should be truncated to a fixed not-too-long length and the other fields line up (eg by using a table)~
  • Handle 404s by showing that 'we think this resource is 404ing'.
  • Handle the absence of QA data on a resource (currently nothing is displayed. Maybe that's fine.
  • Do we need to integrate the 'reason for rating' string into the UI?

Next Steps:

  • Use db dump of thedatahub.org for final testing.

There's a stats plugin (e.g. at http://trac.ckan.org/ticket/832).

Output from the googleanalytics plugin should append to that page, if the stats plugin is present.

Possibly the stats plugin and the googleanalytics plugin should be merged?

Finally, if the stats plugin is active, then a link to the stats page should be added to the main site footer.

#1492 defect kindly dread closed wontfix Interference between extra and relationship fields in API

From Jan Kučera <[email protected]…>

I have also tried to use extras fields to store information about relationships between datasets. I found out that if you first add relationship using CKAN API into dataset relationships attribute and than you add extras field for the same relationship with key in format "parent_of:dataset_name" or "child_of:dataset_name", storing this extras field will clear all relationships in relationships attribute stored earlier.

I might be some kind of bug but I suppose you will know better. Is it possible to use relationships attribute and extras field for relationships at the same time?

#2251 enhancement toby kindly ckan-sprint-2012-04-16 closed fixed Internal analytics for ckan.

Page views and Resources clicks need to be tracked.

User Stories

US1 As a Site Admin / Visitor (?) I want to see how often a page has been viewed (every page) and how often resources have been downloaded.

US1a Next to a resource or a dataset see how often it has been downloaded / viewed

US1b I want to see datasets or resources ranked by most downloaded or viewed

US1c See a trend graph for a dataset (and resources)

Adminstrative Dashboard (?)

  • I want to see the traffic breakdown by country to my site ...
  • Ditto for browser type, language, etc etc
  • I want to see it graphed over time ...

Implementation Details

  1. How do we store this data in CKAN?
  2. How do we track (and store)?
  3. How do we display
  • Config option ckan.status.enabled = False (by default)

Storing Data

How does ckanext-googleanalytics do this? Current table:

package_id | count_recent | count_total

Move to a new stats_summary table

id | item_id | object_type | stats_type (total, month_yyyy_mm, ...) | value

Do we store this data into the search (solr) so we can search by it?

Displaying Data

  • Helper functions / dictize:
    • Helper function: h.stats_get(object_type, id, stats_type)
      • h.stats_top_ranked(object_type, number) -> returns object_dicts or just labels or ...
    • Change to dictize
  • Location in the default theme (do we show for example in search results too!)
  • Support for ranking by most popular in search?

Tracking Data

  • Our own solution (just write to site_tracking)
  • Google analytics (plus extension for retrieving data) <- would need a refactor
  • Piwiki

Own Solution

(For later: not as part of this ticket probably)

site_tracking table

id | url | timestamp | action (page_view, resource_download) |

  • Make javascript to make request to ckan to store clicks and page views.
  • Add middleware so these requests do not go through pylons and just store data quickly.

lib-tests: test for membership addition, removal, group-right additions affecting all members, group-right removal, group rights affecting non-members.

# * Adapt model to get these passing

Edge-side includes or partial page caching are a standard way to deal with caching of pages in which some (usually small) part of the content cannot be cached or should be cached in a different manner (e.g. much more briefly) than the rest of the page.

Edge-side includes have the advantage that they integrate with general 3rd-party caching systems such as varnish.

Introducing either partial page or ESI will require some overhaul work to change the page render processing somewhat.

#1345 enhancement kindly nils.toedtmann closed fixed Investigate possible memory leak

There is some evidence pointing to CKAN handling memory inefficiently or even leaking under certain conditions:

When we migrated ckan.net/thedatahub.org from eu7.okfn.org (32bit) to s053.okserver.org (64bit) (ticket) we experienced extraordinary memory usage peaks (ticket). Here are the observed value with Apache default settings:

  • eu7, mpm-prefork: base level ~0.6GB, peaks up to 2GB
  • s055, mpm-prefork: base level ~1GB, peaks up to 4GB
  • s055, mpm-worker: base level ~1.5GB, peaks up to 6GB

William reduced the life-time of a WSGI CKAN process from 500 requests down to 25 requests (changeset). This (together with two other tweaks) changed the situation drastically:

  • s055, mpm-event: base level ~1.4GB, no peaks

This suggests that the more requests a CKAN processes serves over time, the more memory it consumes, aka bad memory management or a leak.

To prove this theory, one could reduce the total number of WSGI CKAN processes as much as possible without killing the performance (e.g. down to processes=3), and then observing the relation between maximum-requests=25...500 and memory consumption.

On 14/09/11 17:49, David Read wrote:

Someone to do a bit of top-down memory-use profiling would be very useful. Also useful would be something in the tests that reported what test cases use lots of memory - this could be in the nose plugin.

This might also be used to filter records harvested from a CSW source, but filtering also needs more analysis, as does distinction between agent and provider.

Revision.packages should not include all changes so why are we getting revisions with no associated changes? See e.g. http://ckan.net/revision/read/814e39e1-2540-4449-90d1-ac9a92ab40fb?

Investigate and fix.

NB: if this is bugfix this should go against stable or metastable branch if at all possible and then be merged into default.

Cost: 1.5h (?)

#1339 enhancement kindly rgrp ckan-backlog closed fixed Issues / question re navl and data conversion

I ran into a bug with the size field on resources.

  • It would not accept an empty value from form (IMO this clearly equates to null/None)
  • This could be fixed via using ignore_empty instead of ignore_missing
  • However using this means there was no way to empty the field (e.g. i may just want to set the size field back to null not just change to another value)
  • similar issues could arise around other fields (such as last_modified ...)
    • cf cset:645031d07b60

To solve this (cset:58acdcfe6d4e) i created an int_converter temporarily in logic/schema.py (this is almost certainly the wrong place). But I think it raises a bigger issue about the conversion layer and how it works.

#908 defect pudo rgrp ckan-v1.4-sprint-1 closed fixed Issues deploying extensions with modwsgi / uwsgi

Some extensions import pylons features (such as request) at root.

Have encountered following issues:

  1. You need to import ckanext before any ckan stuff in your wsgi script (extension stats and dataapi)
  1. Running under wsgi daemon mode (normal mode is fine!) the front page (front page only) will not work (does not occur with disqus or synchronous_search but does with stats and dataapi extensions). You get errors like this in the log:

#1122 enhancement pudo dread closed wontfix JSON Extra data not searchable

It is possible to use the CKAN API to insert JSON format data into package extra values, but this data is not found on searching.

#1121 enhancement dread closed wontfix JSON extras appear in package edit form mangled

It is possible to use the CKAN API to insert JSON format data into package extra values, but this data is displayed in the package edit form.

Example: Package http://ckan.net/package/hbz_unioncatalog in the API the extra value as a list:

"extras": {"publishingInstitution": ["http://lobid.org/organisation/DE-605", "http://lobid.org/organisation/DE-290"...

yet when you edit the package it loses all the quotes and brackets: http://ckan.net/package/edit/hbz_unioncatalog {{{http://lobid.org/organisation/DE-605http://lobid.org/organisation/DE-290... }}} so when you save the package, the list is mangled into a bad string.
