#133 defect rgrp dread closed fixed Security hole - search package/group (WUI & REST)

Using WUI or REST interface you can search packages and groups without authorization being checked.

On the REST interface you can also read all the attributes of the packages using the 'all-fields' option.

Can be fixed using more advanced query to check authz.

#2394 enhancement dread dread closed fixed Separate off create_test_data CLI

We need to separate the CLI part of CreateTestData? from the bit which creates test fixtures. This is because of the problem with imports and logging. Otherwise we have to do unpythonic things to get logging to work when deriving from CreateTestData? from an extension such as ecportal / dgu. I've only introduced logging into CreateTestData? but I think it is a good thing to have. This change doesn't cause breakages

#277 enhancement zephod dread ckan-backlog assigned Set some config options / settings in WUI (extension)

Use case

As a ckan administrator I want to easily change options about the CKAN install.


Settings to be in DB


## Title of site (using in several places including templates and <title> tag
ckan.site_title = CKAN

## Logo image to use (replaces site_title string on front page if defined)
ckan.site_logo = http://assets.okfn.org/p/ckan/img/ckan_logo_box.png

## Site tagline / description (used on front page)
ckan.site_description = 

## Used in creating some absolute urls (such as rss feeds, css files) and 
## dump filenames
ckan.site_url =

## Favicon (default is the CKAN software favicon)
ckan.favicon = http://assets.okfn.org/p/ckan/img/ckan.ico

## An 'id' for the site (using, for example, when creating entries in a common search index) 
## If not specified derived from the site_url
# ckan.site_id = ckan.net

## API url to use (e.g. in AJAX callbacks)
## Enable if the API is at a different domain
# ckan.api_url = http://www.ckan.net

## html content to be inserted just before </body> tag (e.g. google analytics code)
## NB: can use html e.g. <strong>blah</strong>
## NB: can have multiline strings just indent following lines
# ckan.template_footer_end = 

NB: these will still need to be stored somewhere for loading on initialization. do this in db init function ...

Settings / Options / KeyValues? Table


  • [namespace]: ? only if KeyValues? (for settings this would then always be settings)
  • key
  • label
  • value (json)
  • type (e.g. date and to specify in advance what type should be)
  • description
  • tags: ?? (for grouping ...)

Loading settings from DB

Do this in ckan/config/environment.py


  • /ckan-admin/settings
  • Show label, plus description plus text field


  • Would be part of ckan-admin section and hence build on ticket:833 (Administrative dashboard)

#395 task pudo ckan-v1.3 closed duplicate Set up profiling to analyze performance issues

At the moment, some pages within CKAN tend to load slowly. We should create a profiling setup in which we can measure response times for complete requests and individual methods calls.

This could be used to identify bottlenecks and find an appropriate caching or tuning strategy to improve CKAN performance.

NB: We should also agree on a maximum request latency.

TODO: Read up on all those QoS tickets to avoid overlapping efforts.

I believe this is due to the i18n additions from Benoit. Maybe needs new Genshi. Maybe best to work round in the meantime.

As A

User or Visitor

I Want To

See simple icons (e.g. tick/cross) next to packages (in lists or on main page) indicating openness status of package.

So That

It is easy to see the openness status of a package.


  • Suggested by Liz Turner
  • Openness = open license at present (no easy way to determine whether accessible)
  • Have separate tick for downloadability (i.e. existence of download url)
  • Could do more stuff in future (e.g. money where tag price- exists, etc etc)

#1361 enhancement rgrp rgrp ckan-v1.5 closed fixed Simple search support

Would be nice if CKAN could work out of the box without the need for SOLR (solr is great but complex and heavyweight to install).


  • ckan.simple_search config option
  • If set:
    • query via simple query to database backend
    • do no specialized indexing



  • TagSearchQuery? from lib/search (just do a search directly)?
  • #1360: filter by downloadable and filter by open search options

Possible Extras

(Probably future improvements)

  • Re-introduce full-text search indexing where supported in e.g. postgres and use for querying

#2302 enhancement toby ross demo phase 3 closed fixed Simple theming

Needs re-testing after the ODS re-theme. ====

Simple image upload, text changes and css updates for a single instance. All done on a single configuration/admin page

See http://ckan.okfnpad.org/simple-themes for user stories

[x] Initial version will only take an image_url rather than allowing an upload.

[x] New page with form for title, tagline, image loader etc.

[x] Allow the user to paste in values for the CSS, do we really want a colour swatch?

[x] Generate local CSS override which should *somehow* override colors in the original CSS.

[x] Allow user to provide text for an about page.

The home page always shows the total number of packages as 0, because the query is '*:*' and SQL search doesn't know how to handle it.

Also, simple_search configuration is not documented.

Also, no tests for sql search.

#1450 enhancement zephod johnglover ckan-sprint-2011-12-05 closed fixed Simplify dataset view page

See http://wiki.ckan.org/Dataset_and_Resource_Pages_Proposal

  • Create a collapsible section for the README
  • Reduce the number of things on the page
  • Tidy up groups and tags in the sidebar
  • Resource view becomes a list of search results


  • Resource navbar item links to first resource
  • Resource navbar has a dropdown menu of all resources in the dataset
  • Edit and Authz navbar items should be in a separate logical group to the right

Very rough summary: create more info section and move stuff out (relayout page e.g. README, tags etc)

#2764 enhancement rgrp closed duplicate Simplify filestore

Definitely do:

  • Local file filestore: Remove pairtree (and OFS) and do something very simple


  1. Local file only. Allow for uploaders to GS / S3 in the background
    • Advantages: simpler, if local upload can do progress bars etc etc
    • Disadvantages: strain for web-app (upload a 2GB file what happens)
      • This is probably fixable ...
  2. Stick with how we are

New filestore without pairtree

Each uploaded file is located on disk at:




Need the uuid to avoid collisions.

Metadata: Store no metadata.

  • State that you can add data and more information on next screen. This takes you to Package 'view' where you can then do more stuff.
    • Flash some instructions? e.g. that resources are missing?
  • Name slug should by default look uneditable (cf wordpress way to do the slug)

#1664 enhancement seanh seanh ckan-future closed fixed Smarter group activity streams

We already have simple activity streams for groups that have new group or group updated events (see #1631). Smarter/more useful group activity streams would also contain the events for things related to the group: users, datasets, other groups, etc.

This should just mean using a more complex SQL query in the group_activity_list() logic function.

Things might get tricky when a user or dataset joins a group, this may show up as two events (the user or dataset was modified, and the group was modified). We may want to have two separate events for this (one to go in the user or dataset activity stream and one for the group), or maybe we just want one 'user/dataset joined group' event.

#821 defect dread ckan-v1.4-sprint-2 closed worksforme Some resources have disappeared in CKAN

Simon has spotted 31 packages whose resources have disappeared in CKAN, but still appear in the Drupal front-end.

Here are the details:

  • in CKAN's package view (in web interface, API and dump) no resources display
  • but they WERE created in CKAN, as shown by the revision diffs.
  • they are in the Drupal front-end

A large number of XXX.ckan.net sites give the following message:

"This Site is Down for Maintenance We apologize for the inconvenience. ~ The Open Knowledge Foundation sysadmins."

The message is unhelpful and patently false - the sites do not exist. Some of them were supposed to have been redirected to a relevant group at thedatahub.org in this ticket (now closed):


However, the redirection only seems to have worked in one case, http://si.ckan.net.

Things to take into account:

  • Integration with the form sections.

#1490 enhancement amercader amercader ckan-sprint-2011-12-05 closed fixed Standardize output from package listings coming from the logic layer

Right now, the two logic functions that return a list of packages (package_search [1] and group_packages_list [2])use custom functions to generate the output dict. That's suboptimal because:

  • The template function that renders the package listing (package_list_from_dict) could end up receiving different dicts.
  • Not all package properties are available at the template level (e.g extras, tags...). These can be really useful to customize the listing from an extension.

In general only the functions present in lib/dictization/model_dictize.py should be used to build the output of a logic function, in that case package_dictize. If necessary, they can be modified to include missing properties, like on this particular case the "isopen" property, needed by the template renderer.

This package:



  1. created by Richard (logged-in)
  2. edited by Richard (logged-in)

(According to the logs, at this point the state was changed from 'active' to 'deleted') -- RP was it set to 'deleted' or just ?

  1. pudo changed the state back to active

Similarly an incident with bibbase package where field set to (see http://ckan.net/revision/diff/bibbase?diff=702bb0a3-03b7-49ac-87ad-e489c414962f&oldid=5447842d-b6ed-41d9-9cfd-8bb73b85c409)

Need to investigate how this got changed, fix if necessary and report back to Richard. Note that package 'admins' as well as sysadmins can change the state of a package (though note that bibbase did not appear to have an owner).

Suggested solution (for setting to ):

  • Ensure in ckan/forms.py that there is a validator for state field that ensures only set to valid values.
  • Check that we do not allow state to be changed in the api except by package owner or sysadmin

#2197 defect zydio ckan-backlog assigned Storage Metadata API: add/update not working with local file storage (Pairtree)

If OFS is configured with Pairtree to use a local file storage, all POST requests to add/update metadata ( /api/storage/metadata/{label} ) will fail.

This is due to the use of BotoOFS specific private methods in StorageAPIController.set_metadata(), eg: self.ofs._require_bucket(bucket), self.ofs._get_key(b, label), self.ofs._update_key_metadata(k, metadata) ... those methods can't be found in POTFS and this causes errors. The API should use only OFSInterface methods, or should conditionally make calls based off the actual type of self.ofs.

#1069 enhancement tobes rgrp assigned Stub datasets (request for datasets)

Idea is to have stubs for datasets that someone wants but don't yet exist (or haven't been discovered) in the way one has stub pages on a wiki.

We could do this within the existing model by a slight 'abuse' - create a dataset and mark it with a special tag e.g. todo.does-not-yet-exist or similar ...

(Just as we have datasets listed that exist but aren't available ...)

Alternative would be to have a request for datasets subsystem.

I prefer the stub dataset model because it's simpler, provides a simple workflow (as a dataset is found or comes into existence), and the package page provides a natural space in which to accumulate information about what is wanted and what exists.


  • Agree a new dedicated tag. e.g. todo.does-not-exist
