The issues extension also exposes its functionality as part of the standard CKAN Action API:
/api/3/action/issue_show /api/3/action/issue_create /api/3/action/issue_update /api/3/action/issue_delete /api/3/action/issue_search /api/3/action/issue_count /api/3/action/issue_comment_create /api/3/action/issue_report /api/3/action/issue_report_clear /api/3/action/issue_comment_report /api/3/action/issue_comment_report_clear
Installation and Activation
To install the plugin, enter your virtualenv and install the source::
pip install git+http://github.com/okfn/ckanext-issues
This will also register a plugin entry point, so you now should be able to add the following to your CKAN .ini file::
ckan.plugins = issues
After you clear your cache and reload the site, the Issues plugin and should be available.
To configure notifications, you should set the following options in your configuration. Should notify_admin and notify_owner be set to False then no emails will be sent about the newly created issue.
ckanext.issues.notify_admin = True ckanext.issues.notify_owner = True ckanext.issues.from_address = firstname.lastname@example.org
By default, issues are enabled for all datasets. If you wish to restrict issues to specific datasets you can use the config option
ckanext.issues.enabled_for_dataset = mydataset1 mydataset2 ...
enabled_per_dataset is not set you can use the config option
ckanext.issues.enabled_per_dataset_default = false
To turn off issues for all datasets, in this case, ckanext-issues will search for a dataset extra in each dataset
If this dataset extra is present, issues will be enabled for that dataset.
Please open an issue in the github issue tracker.
