Summary0025997: Invalid JSON response when creating issue with tag by name via REST API

When attempting to create an issue with the REST API and the payload includes at least one existing tag specified by name, IssueAddCommand::process() triggers a PHP notice as it checks the value of $t_tag['id'].

Depending on PHP error_reporting settings, an HTML error message is appended to the expected JSON response, causing it to become invalid.

Steps To Reproduce
  • Set error_reporting = E_ALL
  • Create issue
    $ curl --location -w "%{http_code}" --request POST "http://path/to/mantisbt/api/rest/issues/"   --header "Authorization: XXXX"   --header "Content-Type: application/json"   --data "{
    \"summary\": \"Test add issue with tags $(date +%T)\",
    \"description\": \"Test description\",
    \"category\": {
    \"name\": \"General\"
    \"project\": {
    \"name\": \"Test project\"
    }, \"tags\": [ { \"name\": \"existing-tag\" }, {} ]


{"issue":{"id":22218,"summary":"Test with tags 14:05:28","description":"This is a test description","project":{"id":1,"name":"mantisbt"},
&quot;type&quot;:{&quot;id&quot;:25,&quot;name&quot;:&quot;tag-added&quot;},&quot;tag&quot;:{&quot;id&quot;:&quot;218&quot;,&quot;name&quot;:&quot;modern-ui&quot;},&quot;message&quot;:&quot;Tag Attached: modern-ui&quot;}]}}<br />

The same problem occurs if the user attempting to create the issue does not have the required privileges to create tags (in that case, the NOTICE is thrown in IssueAddCommand::validate() at line 222).
