Templates for ticket input

Pagure offers the possibility to add templates for ticket’s input. These templates do not enforce anything, users will have the possibility to simply ignore it, or even to not follow it, but it also helps structuring the ticket opened against a project and highlighting the information that are often requested/needed.

The templates are provided in the git repository containing the meta-data for the tickets. They must be placed under a templates folder in this git repository, end with .md and as the extension suggests can be formatted as markdown.

If you create a template templates/default.md, it will be shown by default when someone ask to create a new ticket.

Example

For a project named test on pagure.io.

  • First, clone the ticket git repo [1] and move into it
git clone ssh://git@pagure.io/tickets/pagure.git
cd test
  • Create the templates folder
mkdir templates
  • Create a default template
vim templates/default.md

And place in this file the following content:
