What variable can I use for user who last modified a tracker item in PluginList?

posts: 24 Australia

Hi all,

I'm using Pluginlist to display information on when a tracker item was last modified (modification_date) but but I was wondering if there is any ability to display the user who modified the tracker item? Do you know what the variable name is? Does this even exist?

Hi @lkganguli@gmail.com

The fields available in the search index are listed here, but it's a bit hard to read...

The creator and modifying users are stored in the contributors field as a "multivalve", which frankly has always been a bit of a pain - we should add more fields for each one i think like creation _user and modification_user or something).

So in the meantime you need to use a format suitable for this, e.g.

{display name="contributors" format="reference" type="user"}

(from PluginList-display-control-block doc page)

So if you want only the modifier, then you'll need to do something with a smarty template where you can "filter" the values (unless someone else knows an easier way?)

Thank you for that Jonny, "contributors" works well enough for me :-) I just needed to know who has touched the item so I can track them down if there are any clarifications needed from their input.

Cheers,
