Re: Create new View page or Export

Additional note : We know that we can do this because Mantis already supports per-project views. What I'm suggesting here is that views simply get names which can then be assigned as a default to any project, and then the names can be made available in a dropdown in the view page. I think I will be ...

Re: Create new View page or Export

That's where we are now, with one view for everyone with a single configuration. Change the configuration and it's still the same view for everyone. To be clear, there is the view on the page, the CSV view, the Print view, etc. Yes, each one of those has a configuration. But there is only one page v...

Re: Custom email notification content

Ugh, I've had email_api.php sitting on my desktop for months and I need to make changes. It's just staring at me. "Go ahead, I dare you to start messing with me." I haven't allocated the time to wrestle with the beast. I love that Mantis is so versatile in some ways, but it's so hard-coded...

Re: Create new View page or Export

Thanks @cas. But, well, that's a 100% DIY solution with zero % built-in support. I was kinda hoping for slightly better. :wink: I know we have examples for adding buttons to the side, like in the wiki plugin. But creating a new view won't be as easy as cloning view_all_bug_page.php. That page relies...

Create new View page or Export

I have looked all around and I think I must be missing something... A colleage added new custom fields to a project. I thought it would be good to have a View of that data. We have Print Reports, CSV Export, Excel Export, and XML Export. Is there a model anywhere, maybe documentation, that describes...

Evolution of Status and Workflow

For different clients and their different projects I try to setup workflow transitions that fit the needs and personalities. Some people don't like a rigid structure. Most people don't like too many status transitions. Some projects don't need a lot of transitions. Some projects do require more refi...

Plugins by Deboutv and SebastienRenault

I am creating this thread as simply a place to dump all notes about this code until it can be sorted. I'll take that on as a personal challenge as time permits, to update the list of available plugins, categorize, etc. I have created two files, DeboutvMantisV1Plugins.zip and SebastienRenaultMantisV1...

Re: Which source for new installation?

Thanks man. I'll load up master in a test environment, get familiar with it, and then deploy to a live environment. I've never used your plugin but for a long time have admired from a distance your diligence and generosity. ( Stroke! :mrgreen: ) Current application : I setup Mantis for some colleagu...

Re: Help for a newb mantis plugin writer

Hey @stigzler, I just wanted to comment that you're not alone. I haven't looked specifically at a phpBB interface but I've had it in my mind to do others like it. While I'm competent to work on existing PHP code, I don't have same confidence as I do when working with C#, Java, or other languages. Wo...

Re: Notif Type Plugin

@cas - I found this goldmine of code, including Notif. I haven't opened the .pkg files to see what's in them. But I'm sure you will. ;) http://deboutv.free.fr/mantis/download.php It's really old stuff. There's no telling if these are old versions or the latest possible versions of the plugins. And y...

Re: Is there an event that targets dropzone?

What about checking for the presence of window.dropzone?
Or look for other markers that indicate a dropzone target is on the page?

Re: ServiceNow and Mantis

I think the answer to all such questions of "can Mantis interface with X?" is YES. The challenge is find and motivate people to become familiar with both sides of the equation, and then to develop the bridge between them. This is true for SalesForce, ServiceNow, Twilio, GitHub, QuickBooks,...

Re: (semi) automatic checking for plugin updates.

I haven't tried it yet but I think it's awesome that you moved directly from identifying a problem to a solution using the tools available. Did I saw awesome? I meant AWESOME! I really hope more people see this as inspiration to create plugins that do what they want ... then share with everyone else...
