    7575=== Reports Involving Custom Fields === 
    7676 
    77 The SQL required for TracReports to include custom ticket fields is relatively hard to get right. You need a `JOIN` with the `ticket_custom` field for every custom field that should be involved. 
     77Custom ticket fields are stored in the `ticket_custom` table, not in the `ticket` table. So to display the values from custom fields in a report, you will need a join on the 2 tables. Let's use an example with a custom ticket field called `progress`. 
    7878 
    79 The following example includes a custom ticket field named `progress` in the report: 
     79{{{ 
     80#!sql 
     81SELECT p.value AS __color__, 
     82   id AS ticket, summary, owner, c.value AS progress 
     83  FROM ticket t, enum p, ticket_custom c 
     84  WHERE status IN ('assigned') AND t.id = c.ticket AND c.name = 'progress' 
     85AND p.name = t.priority AND p.type = 'priority' 
     86  ORDER BY p.value 
     87}}} 
     88'''Note''' that this will only show tickets that have progress set in them, which is '''not the same as showing all tickets'''. If you created this custom ticket field ''after'' you have already created some tickets, they will not have that field defined, and thus they will never show up on this ticket query. If you go back and modify those tickets, the field will be defined, and they will appear in the query. If that's all you want, you're set. 
     89 
     90However, if you want to show all ticket entries (with progress defined and without), you need to use a `JOIN` for every custom field that is in the query. 
    8091{{{ 
    8192#!sql 
     
    96107Note in particular the `LEFT OUTER JOIN` statement here. 
    97108 
     109=== Updating the database === 
     110 
     111As noted above, any tickets created before a custom field has been defined will not have a value for that field. Here's a bit of SQL (tested with SQLite) that you can run directly on the Trac database to set an initial value for custom ticket fields. Inserts the default value of 'None' into a custom field called 'request_source' for all tickets that have no existing value: 
     112 
     113{{{ 
     114#!sql 
     115INSERT INTO ticket_custom 
     116   (ticket, name, value) 
     117   SELECT  
     118      id AS ticket, 
     119      'request_source' AS name, 
     120      'None' AS value 
     121   FROM ticket  
     122   WHERE id NOT IN ( 
     123      SELECT ticket FROM ticket_custom 
     124   ); 
     125}}} 
     126 
     127If you added multiple custom fields at different points in time, you should be more specific in the subquery on table {{{ticket}}} by adding the exact custom field name to the query: 
     128 
     129{{{ 
     130#!sql 
     131INSERT INTO ticket_custom 
     132   (ticket, name, value) 
     133   SELECT  
     134      id AS ticket, 
     135      'request_source' AS name, 
     136      'None' AS value 
     137   FROM ticket  
     138   WHERE id NOT IN ( 
     139      SELECT ticket FROM ticket_custom WHERE name = 'request_source' 
     140   ); 
     141}}}
