Re: Application error - 27

Thanks for asking. I appreciate your assistance in the forums and with the project. These sorts of values need some context to allow a new user, or even an old one, to gauge the impact. Some discussion can be quite helpful. - What is the behavior of the app is the value of $g_antispam_max_event_coun...

Re: Application error - 27

I followed the link provided and what struck me was the lack of explanation of the usage and behavior. It is all well and good to provide a technical definition, but the OP clearly stated that he/she was new to Mantis. Given the lack of experience of the OP, I suggest that a bit of context would hav...

Re: "Attempting to connect to database as admin -> BAD

In addition to the advice from atrol, it is bad practice to log on as "root". Far better to create a dbms user account specifically for Mantis. E.g. 'mantisadmin' with limited privileges, access only to the Mantis database, and a complicated password.

run 1.3.3 and 2.5 (or 2.6) in parallel

I would like to run version 1.3.3 and a newer version in parallel while we rewrite some custom plugins to work with the newer Mantis. That is, I would like the two installations to share the database and attachment directories.

Is that possible?

Re: "Time tracking" on Mantis 2.0 ??

However, I have a need for two features: 1. ability to set the date of the work (eg. I worked 4 hours YESTERDAY on this issue.) 2. ability to set a custom tracking field (eg. research, dev, testing...) My group developed an in-house plugin that presents a time entry grid that lets the user set the ...

Re: Time Tracking

Thank you. I understand your clarification of "deprecated". I will begin testing 1.3 to see how it works. I haven't followed the Mantis dev process in years. Are you still accepting proposals for modifications from the community? If yes, can you point me to a document that describes the co...

Re: Time Tracking

We use the MantisBT core functionality to capture time tracking values in the bug notes. Upon that we have created a page to the MantisBT web app nav bar for quick time entry, added some database tables and a desktop app for billing and reporting sensitive information. Save for few links, all the ad...

Time Tracking

We have invested a great deal of effort extending the time tracking capabilities in MantisBT v1.2.x using the time tracking plugin as a basis. I see now that it has been deprecated in v1.3. I would like to learn the reason(s) for this action, and to learn of other options available, so that I can pl...

Where did "project documents" go?

We upgraded to 1.2.8 and it seems the "documents" page has disappeared. I am not referring to mantis user guides. I am writing about the page where all the documents pertaining to a project appear. It used to be on the main navigation band at the far right end. Did I overlook some setting?...

Where to get font/files for captcha?

I setup MantisBT 1.2 on a CentOS 5 barebones box. Mantis is working fine so far. However, the captcha image for the new account does not appear. The server OS distro is intended to run headless so has no support for GUI stuff. I have checked one obvious path, /etc/fonts/, and there isn't anything in...

building on mantis: user logon

I have create a companion application that mines data from the mantis database. The app is rather boring but useful to us. The custom app is not built with PHP, but another toolset. I would like to have the custom application use the MantisBT user table to authorize users. I don't need to create acc...

Re: Data Model For Mantis

I don't really know. I am not involved as a developer, and reverse models are always a bit weak. I recently came across Aqua Data Studio which provides a pretty good modeling tool. Perhaps I can winnow some additional information if time allows.

Disable Edit & Delete of Bugnote

I am integrating a custom data system. When posting is complete, I would like to prevent mantis users from editing or deleting the bugnotes related to posted records in the other system. The installation of Mantis is running version 1.1.8, over PHP 4 and MySQL. We cannot upgrade this server yet but ...

Re: Import XML Files into Mantis

One method would be to use XSLT to read the XML file and transform it into a structure suitable for importing into the database using SQL insert statements. This would require some planning to consider primary and foreign keys, etc, but is a common enough task. The transformation may be easier witho...
