Summary0021624: mantis_user_pref_table.redirect_delay should not be a boolean (broken Account Preferences)

In My Account > Preferences, entering a Redirect Delay greater than 1 results in the following error:

Database query failed. Error received from database was #-1: ERROR: invalid input syntax for type boolean: "2" for the query: INSERT INTO mantis_user_pref_table
(user_id, project_id, default_profile, default_project, refresh_delay, redirect_delay, bugnote_order, email_on_new, email_on_assigned, email_on_feedback, email_on_resolved, email_on_closed, email_on_reopened, email_on_bugnote, email_on_status, email_on_priority, email_on_new_min_severity, email_on_assigned_min_severity, email_on_feedback_min_severity, email_on_resolved_min_severity, email_on_closed_min_severity, email_on_reopened_min_severity, email_on_bugnote_min_severity, email_on_status_min_severity, email_on_priority_min_severity, email_bugnote_limit, language, timezone) VALUES ( $1,$2,$3,$4,$5,$6,$7,$8,$9,$10,$11,$12,$13,$14,$15,$16,$17,$18,$19,$20,$21,$22,$23,$24,$25,$26,$27,$28).

This appears to be because the <code>mantis_user_pref_table.redirect_delay</code> field in the database is type <code>boolean</code> instead of <code>integer</code>.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Go to My Account
  2. Enter password if necessary
  3. Go to Preferences
  4. Enter a Redirect Delay greater than 1 second
  5. Click Update Prefs
Additional Information

Configuration info:

Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty
PHP 5.5.9
PostgreSQL 9.3.11
Mantis 1.3.0

We've been using the same Mantis installation since 2007 so it's gone through a lot of upgrades; not sure when the problem started.

TagsNo tags attached.

This column was initially (i.e. in pre 1.2 days) defined as type 'L' [1], which actually translates to Boolean under pgsql.

In 1.2.0a1 the type was changed to integer [2], so the installer should have updated the column as part of the upgrade process.

Have you always been running under PostgreSQL ? If so, did you manually create or update the schema at some point ?

In any case, I am not able to reproduce this behavior; a fresh pgsql install shows the column correctly defined as follows: <pre>redirect_delay integer NOT NULL DEFAULT 0</pre>.

I would suggest you compare your current schema with one from a fresh install, to identify any discrepancies.

Hmm. It could be that one of my predecessors failed to upgrade it correctly. I'll update the schema manually, thank you.

Thanks for your feedback. I'm resolving this as no change required; feel free to reopen if you feel this was caused by a bug in Mantis.
