Re: Theme Plugin BeachSide

@MadkaT - That's pretty cool. I suggest you offer your services for a fee. End-users with MantisBT tend to be companies with a need to do extensive issue tracking. These companies appreciate FOSS but they also need to appreciate the value of keeping developers alive to write more FOSS. The model I s...

Re: Example of custom authentication provider with SampleAuth

The approach I would take with this is to look into the Mantis code to see how it determines whether a user is logged in, and what it does when a user is not. Then: Is there a hook there for alternative behavior? If so, look to see what a hooked event handler needs to accept and return. If not, see ...

Re: Extend rest api

@federico - Let's be specific. What would you like to add to the API? Maybe we can clone and adapt code, then submit a GH PR.

As to OO, PHP is now pretty good with OO. I suggest you look for existing code and model after the good examples.

Re: Generate individual project id

I think this is part of the code you're looking for: https://github.com/mantisbt/mantisbt/blob/master-2.19/core/project_api.php#L337 function project_create( $p_name, $p_description, $p_status... ... $t_query = 'INSERT INTO {project} ( name, status, enabled, view_state, file_path, description, inher...

Re: Better solution than MantisBT

Good points... @cas is right that we need to use Mantis as-intended. It's not a tool for a site that already has very rigid rules. But my experience tells me that for a site that does not track issues effectively, that MantisBT helps to establish good practices. I have helped a few companies to esta...

Re: How to get all mantis users via api rest?

No prob. If you'd ike to discuss plugin creation, check out the forum section dedicated to that topic. (See my sig) Just a note - I'm no expert in the area and don't have a lot of time right now to provide many details. My goal is to provide a forum for such discussions, to attract "like minds&...

Re: Better solution than MantisBT

Um, no. That's why we're here. Seriously ... MantisBT has a lot of features and it's aggressively supported. Yes, there is a huge list of issues, but most of the "bugs" reported against this software are requests for enhancements, not really faults. So you can use the software and experien...

Re: High Level User Guides?

@ajtaylor999 - I have a standard document in Google Docs that I copy and modify for each new client that I bring up on MantisBT. When I modify it, I personalize/brand it with screenshots of the client-specific tracker. Screenshots include their employee names, their product names, etc. I will re-wor...

Re: Custom Field: Reopen Counter

I think what you want is a trigger so that when a ticket is changed from Resolved/Closed status to anything else, that the value of a custom field is incremented. Is that a focused description of this challenge? I think we can refine that further, that it sounds like you'd like a plugin which will c...

OK, as just another member of this forum I have some requests and advice. I understand you do not speak English as a native. Many people here do not. This sometimes causes misunderstandings.

Re: Git integration using source-integration plugin fails

RE the date: 1970-01-01 01:00:00 That's the integer value for 0, displayed in the date format, with a 1-hour offset. So whatever column it's using for date, it's getting 0 or maybe text which it is then converting to 0. While I'm not 100% certain, this seems to be just another indication that the co...

For that query, the parameters are ( Repo_ID, Revision, ... If it's scraping the page of a single repository, the Repo_ID should be a single unique ID for that repository. It should not be changing. Similarly, the Revision in this context is the same as a Commit, and I don't know about Cgit but Git ...

Re: Git integration using source-integration plugin fails

Looking at John's other notes on this topic: If using Gitweb, versions newer than 1.6 may not work correctly, as the Gitweb plugin is scraping HTML from the viewer, and changes to the HTML structure will break the Gitweb plugin. -- https://jreese.sh/blog/source-integration-triage That confirms one o...
