GridStatusAurasExt
Version: v0.72
by: Julith [More]
This addon tries to complete base grids aura tracking capabilities. It adds Aura groups (one status, multiple auras), auras by spell ID, "only theirs", "all (of one group) missing" and more to possibly come.

== What it can do ==
  • one status for a number of auras (eg. list of boss debuffs)
  • show "only mine" or "only their" auras
  • show certain debuff types (magic, poison, etc) where you can add auras to exclude from (eg. "Frostbolt")
  • show missing buffs/buffgroups (eg. show if "Powerword: Fortidude" **or** "Prayer of Fortitude" is missing)
  • provides option templates for common use cases like "Missing buffs" or "Debuff types" to make configuration easier

== How to use ==
  1. Under "Gird->AurasExt" add a new aura group by giving it a name using one of the "New xxx" text boxes (I recommend to use one of the template version if you use this addon the first time, "Simple aura group" for example). This will create a new status for this aura group under "Grid->Status".
  2. Configure the new status how you want. The options for a aura group status being displayed depends on the template you used. The templates renames some options as well as hiding some by giving them the value needed for that template. You can always change the template used for an aura group under "templates". If you change the template to "none" you will be able to see all settings available as well as how the previous template has set them. If you change back to an actual template only the options which have to have certain values for this template will be changed (the same options will be hidden by the template), everything else will stay the same.
  3. At last register the status under "Grid->Frames" with one of the indicators.
v0.72:
- update for 4.0
- added ignore pets option

v0.61:
- moved options for aura group status to separate sub-option
- uses actual spell-Id now instead of rank and texture to find auras by spell-id

v0.5:
- added tracking of targeted mob auras
- removed left debug messages
- fixed some minor bugs

v0.4:
- added coloring by magic type
- added option to show only buffs/debuffs
- made disable/enable option work
- fixed some small bugs

v0.3:
- added option templates
- added debuff types to aura groups

v0.1: initial version

Your best chance is deleting all of your configured aura groups and redoing them with 0.5. I will also try to find the reason why the settings broke with the transition.
Well I finally updated to the latest version for the 3.3.5 patch, and spent some time finding the cause of this bug. The "mobAuras" setting that was added in 0.5 is boolean, but old settings have it set as nil. The check in function isAuraInGroup on line 888 looks like this:
Code:
return isTarget == group.settings.mobAuras
and ...
False wasn't equal to nil, so none of my groups were considered active. The fix? Turn the Mob Auras checkbox on and then back off again for each group.

I tried with the new "tracking of targeted mob auras" checkbox both on and off with no luck (not too clear on what it does).

One of my guildies also said that he had to redo all his configuration because of 0.5, but for him it were only two simple groups.

Tracking of targeted mob auras shows you auras of the target of every unit in grid, instead of auras on the unit itself. Its meant for classes which can purge buffs from enemies. Or to track important boss-buffs.

Debuff type and aura names

I made a group and put in all crowd control debuffs I know by name, that a priest can cleanse. The problem is some of these crowd control effects have more than one effect, for example Psychic Horror has a magic stun and a physical disarm component. Now for a priest it is only possible to cleanse the stun. Both effects have the same name "Psychic Horror" but different types (magic and physical).
Would it be possible to add an option like the debuff type, as an additional condition whether the status triggers?
A workaround for my problem would be to use aura IDs and not names, but then I would have to put in every ID for each possible rank to really be sure all is covered.

  1. Unckecking the "Enable" checkbox doesn't seem to disable the status.
  2. Possibly related, removing an individual aura from an aura group doesn't make the group quit displaying that aura until a reload UI.

A few suggestions that would be icing on the cake:
  1. Add an option to use GridStatusAuras' debuff-type colors instead of one color for all auras in the group.
  2. Add a small note field for each aura, so I could add boss names to my new list of burn/priority debuffs.

Thanks for another great Grid status!
I'll fix both of the bugs with the next version (not 0.3). Thanks

I'll also add the coloring option but I think I won't add the note field. It adds to much configuration overhead to the addon and is (in my eyes) nothing an aura status really needs to provide. To remember which debuff is from which boss you will have to use some note-pad addon , sorry.
