Automatic Actions/Event: Move a task to another swimlane


#1

I would like to assign a task to a specific user when I move it to a specific swimlane. In Automatic Actions we do have the Event: “Move a task to another column”. I couldn’t find a corresponding action (native or plugin) for swimlanes. Did I miss something?

If no, as TaskAssignCategory does a similar thing, I could try to (re)write a plugin for that purpose.

No, you didn’t miss something.

This should do it (if you need help making a plugin, just let me know):

<?php

namespace Kanboard\Plugin\TaskAssignUserSwimlane\Action;

use Kanboard\Model\TaskModel;
use Kanboard\Action\Base;


class TaskAssignUserSwimlane extends Base
{
    /**
     * Get automatic action description
     *
     * @access public
     * @return string
     */
    public function getDescription()
    {
        return t('Assign a user when the task is moved to a specific swimlane');
    }

    /**
     * Get the list of compatible events
     *
     * @access public
     * @return array
     */
    public function getCompatibleEvents()
    {
        return array(
            TaskModel::EVENT_CREATE,
            TaskModel::EVENT_MOVE_SWIMLANE,
        );
    }

    /**
     * Get the required parameter for the action (defined by the user)
     *
     * @access public
     * @return array
     */
    public function getActionRequiredParameters()
    {
        return array(
            'swimlane_id' => t('Swimlane'),
            'user_id' => t('Assignee'),
        );
    }

    /**
     * Get the required parameter for the event
     *
     * @access public
     * @return string[]
     */
    public function getEventRequiredParameters()
    {
        return array(
            'task_id',
            'task' => array(
                'project_id',
                'swimlane_id',
            ),
        );
    }

    /**
     * Execute the action (set the task assignee)
     *
     * @access public
     * @param  array   $data   Event data dictionary
     */
    public function doAction(array $data)
    {
        $values = array(
            'id' => $data['task_id'],
            'owner_id' => $this->getParam('user_id'),
        );

        return $this->taskModificationModel->update($values);
    }

    /**
     * Check if the event data meet the action condition
     *
     * @access public
     * @param  array   $data   Event data dictionary
     * @return bool
     */
    public function hasRequiredCondition(array $data)
    {
        return $data['task']['swimlane_id'] == $this->getParam('swimlane_id');
    }
}

Thank you. So let me try this. Will let you know when I’m stuck…
