Summary0016324: History record inconsistent

The Issue history is being inconsistent when you create a custom field named "status"

Steps To Reproduce
  • Create a custom field named status and link it to a project and mark it to be shown on issue updating
  • change the issue status
  • edit the "status" custom field on the same issue and put a number (one like the statuses options preferably)
  • check the Issue history

The system is treating the status custom field in the same way as the Status field, formatting its values like statuses.

Additional Information

I checked the database and found out that in the mantis_bug_history_table the status changes are registered as "field_name" = "status", the same way as the custom field is registered.

I could not check it with other fields with the same name as system fields, but I guess the same thing should happen (or the validation made in this fields is not being made in the status field)

The best solution, IMHO, is to block the creation of a custom field named "status".

TagsNo tags attached.

The same applies to all field names which are hardcoded in function history_localize_item
