Summary0024242: Incorrect issue status setting when changing status

When following conditions are met when changing issue status, the issue will be set to incorrectly to assigned status rather than the status selected.

  • changing status of an issue from feedback to any other status (e.g. resolved) AND
  • Changing assigned field (to someone not you) in the change status form AND
  • Adding a note AND
  • You are the reporter of the issue.

Note that if you change the workflow threshold setting for "Set status on assignment of Handler" and "Status to set auto-assigned issues to" this can affect results. Changing "Status to set auto-assigned issues to" means that bug will change status to the same status set here (e.g. change this from assigned to new and issue are then incorrectly set to new).

Steps To Reproduce
  • Default workflow settings - "Set status on assignment of Handler" checked, "Status to set auto-assigned issues to" set to assigned.
  • Create an issue (i.e. you are the reporter)
  • set an issue to feedback status and assigned to yourself
  • select a new status other than 'assigned' (e.g. confirmed) and click "Change Status to"
  • select new user in assigned to dropdown in change of status form.
  • Add a note
  • Click submit.

instead of confirmed status, issue is set to assigned.

after more testing the "Set status on assignment of Handler" doesn't have any impact on the bug. Only "Status to set auto-assigned issues to"

I think this is caused by a feature that changes the status from feedback to assigned when the reporter comments on the issue.

if( $t_bug_note->note &&
    config_get( 'reassign_on_feedback' ) &&
    $t_existing_bug->status == config_get( 'bug_feedback_status' ) &&
    $t_updated_bug->status != $t_existing_bug->status &&
    $t_updated_bug->handler_id != $t_current_user_id &&
    $t_updated_bug->reporter_id == $t_current_user_id

I have a feeling that the fix is to change

$t_updated_bug->status != $t_existing_bug->status &&


$t_updated_bug->status == $t_existing_bug->status &&

But I haven't tested. Will check.
