    1010An issue is assigned to a person who must resolve it or reassign the ticket to someone else. All tickets can be edited, annotated, assigned, prioritized and discussed at any time.

    13 However, a Trac installation may place restrictions on who can change what. For example, the default installation doesn't permit to non-authenticated users ("anonymous" users) to change anything, even to comment on an issue, for obvious spam prevention reasons. Check the local contributing policy, which you can usually find on the front page of WikiStart, or contact your local Trac administrator.

    4242With appropriate permissions, as already mentioned [#edit-permissions above], a ticket entered into Trac can at any time be modified by '''annotating'''.
     
    4444Then, annotations like changes and comments to the ticket are logged as a part of the ticket itself. When viewing a ticket, the history of changes will appear below the main ticket area.
    4545
    46 Comment editing (available since 0.12) is meant to be used to make small corrections to comments, like fixing formatting, forgotten WikiFormatting or spelling errors, not major edits. For longer edits, you should be adding a new comment instead. Editing a comment will not produce a new entry on [/timeline], while entering a new comment or other changes will do.

    57 == Default Values for Drop-Down Fields
     58== Default Values for Drop-Down Fields ==
    5859
    5960The option selected by default for the various drop-down fields can be set in [wiki:TracIni trac.ini], in the `[ticket]` section:
    6061
    61  * `default_component`: Name of the component selected by default.
    62  * `default_milestone`: Name of the default milestone.
    63  * `default_priority`: Default priority value.
    64  * `default_severity`: Default severity value.
    65  * `default_type`: Default ticket type.
    66  * `default_version`: Name of the default version.
     62 * `default_component`: Name of the component selected by default
     63 * `default_milestone`: Name of the default milestone
     64 * `default_priority`: Default priority value
     65 * `default_severity`: Default severity value
     66 * `default_type`: Default ticket type
     67 * `default_version`: Name of the default version
    6768 * `default_owner`: Name of the default owner. If set to the text `< default >` (the default value), the component owner is used.
    6869
    69 If any of these options are omitted, the default value will either be the first in the list, or an empty value, depending on whether the field in question is required to be set. Some of these can be chosen through the [trac:WebAdmin WebAdmin] plugin in the "Ticket System" section, others can be set in the [[wiki:TracIni#ticket-section|"[ticket]"]] section in `trac.ini`.

    71 == Hiding Fields and Adding Custom Fields
     72
     73== Hiding Fields and Adding Custom Fields ==
    7274
    7375Many of the default ticket fields can be hidden from the ticket web interface simply by removing all the possible values through [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin]. This of course only applies to drop-down fields, such as ''type'', ''priority'', ''severity'', ''component'', ''version'' and ''milestone''.
     
    7577Trac also lets you add your own custom ticket fields. See TracTicketsCustomFields for more information.
    7678
    77 == Assign-to as Drop-Down List
    7879
    79 If the list of possible ticket owners is finite, you can change the ''assign-to'' ticket field from a text input to a drop-down list. This is done by setting the `restrict_owner` option of the `[ticket]` section in [wiki:TracIni trac.ini] to `true`. In that case, Trac will populate the list with all users who **have an authenticated session** and possess the `TICKET_MODIFY` [TracPermissions permissions].
     80== Assign-to as Drop-Down List ==
    8081
    81 An authenticated session will be created the first time a user authenticates with the project. You can manually add an authenticated session using the ["TracAdmin#?session add" trac-admin] `session add` command. The `:1` suffix on the session id (i.e. username) is the key to creating an authenticated session:
    82 {{{#!sh
    83 trac-admin /path/to/projenv session add <sid>:1 [name] [email]
    84 }}}
     82If the list of possible ticket owners is finite, you can change the ''assign-to'' ticket field from a text input to a drop-down list. This is done by setting the `restrict_owner` option of the `[ticket]` section in [wiki:TracIni trac.ini] to `true`. In that case, Trac will populate the list with all users who have authenticated with the project and possess the  `TICKET_MODIFY` [TracPermissions permissions].
    8583
    8684You may find the dropdown list is //overpopulated// with users that are no longer active in the project. Revoking authentication privileges will not remove the session data that is used to populate the dropdown list. The [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] command can be used to list and remove sessions:
