Our project was just converted.

One of our trackers was not migrated. It was our spam hiding tracker so it's loss is not important and I have created a new one.

The original tracker id's appear to have been lost. Are these available in some undocumented field or as a cross reference.

Most of the new UI mouse hover help text is empty. This is making learning the new system harder than it should be. With Firefox the mouse over status bar url is somewhat useful, but with IE the status bar space is to small to get the hint.

    Hi. Original tracker ids are still in the system. Old URLs with the old numbers redirect to the new location, and you can search for old ids (example) use old ids directly in the URL (example). Is this sufficient for you, or do you need to use them in some other way?

    Thanks for the suggestion on hover text.

    Thanks for fixing the hover text, it's much easier to discover features now. Some icons are not initially obvious in all cultural contexts.

    For the old ids we need the reverse so if I look at new ticket 201 I need to know it was old id 2352969.

    Your system obviously has a table that maps old to new 2352969->201, so a dump of the table that we can swap the columns and sort by new id to build a cross reference document could be a fall-back option. But it would be better if it was integrated into the system, E.g. Adding a new Field "Old Id" and auto-populating it with the data would be ideal. I guess if I had the cross reference data I could take a backup of the new system, merge the info and get you to restore the modified backup, just bit of a learning curve.

    I've checked with the team on this, we're considering two options.

    1. We could expose that information via the Allura API: eg. as a field on https://sourceforge.net/rest/p/avisynth2/bugs/201/
    2. We could provide a one-off list of the mapping to you

    Which would you prefer?

    Thanks,

    Thanks, I've discussed this with the team and we'll go with 2. I've created a ticket for this here: [allura:tickets:#6351]
