|Summary||0009248: Improvement suggestion for uploading clear filenames with DISK method|
When using DISK method for uploading files, I experiment some problems.
Then let's me expose my point of view of such feature (DISK method only)
File uploading operation write attachments with an encrypt-like behaviour. In an other way, files aren't stored with their real name.
If several file with same name exist, Mantis will have to add a suffix or prefix with an index.
|Steps To Reproduce|
A template definition for attachment files could be added in project management.
Writing files without real names is a big disadvantage because users (admin and others users) could not identify files without Mantis (or info in database).
In our company, we want to put all bugs attachment in a network drive but also readable (in read only) via other tools than Mantis.
Putting filenames in clear in several directories with an optional path root (why not via "g_absolute_path_default_upload_folder" in "config_in.php") will be useful too for upgrade operation "Move attachments from Database from Disk" (and inversely).
For FTP, we could imagine a similar mechanism
Then in each project we could use either absolute path (it'll ignore "g_absolute_path_default_upload_folder") or relative path by using
