Re: Wondering the best way to mass-import users

Hey Cas, does this need to be updated for the new 2.20.0 version of Mantis? I noticed some of the code was changed around user import since 2.18.0...

Re: How to contact a certain plugin author?

Okay, thanks for the link. What I see there is only a huge list of bugs that are being fixed. So I'm wondering where the list of future *enhancements* and *features* is located to take a look. otherwise, are you saying that there are no plans to make Mantis better, just to keep it in maintenance mod...

Re: How to contact a certain plugin author?

Where is the roadmap for future Mantis enhancements kept? Perhaps making output template-driven could be added to it, so that when any developers touch those affected core modules they can make changes with that in mind. It would make adding the feature easier in the future, perhaps moving email out...

Re: How to contact a certain plugin author?

Well atrol, that's okay, however let's face it: the email notices sent to customers are kind of ugly. There's little formatting, notes and information are not in an understandable order, it is extremely difficult to read for ME, let alone a typical non-technical user, and after all these years it ap...

How to contact a certain plugin author?

I want to try the HTMLemail plugin but it crashes my version 2.18.0 of MantisBT. How can I submit a bug or get a new version? There *is* a thread on it and I left a comment but there is no traffic so my comment was not seen. I'm not sure why the plugin doesn't work since it was supposedly updated fo...

Re: Wondering the best way to mass-import users

Thanks, got it. It was a rather complex set of things that led to the emails not getting processed but now it's fixed. Have a great day!

Re: Wondering the best way to mass-import users

Thank you for all your hard work, I just ran it and it imported the users without sending emails. Yay! However, now Mantis won't process *any* emails. So I'm wondering what process you used to prevent sending emails, and if this would have interfered with the EmailReporting plugin in any way? I've u...

Re: Wondering the best way to mass-import users

New version still did not declare variable in the _page.php file so I added it at the top like before, yet it crashes when I try to import the sample.csv file now. I get a server error 500. :-(

Re: Wondering the best way to mass-import users

Thank you for the update! Before I run this, how does it actually prevent Mantis from sending a new-user-account email? I thought that was hard-coded in Mantis to always send an email when a new account is created...and no global variable exists to prevent it? I was going to just put in a fake SMTP ...

Re: Wondering the best way to mass-import users

Thanks for that. Unfortunately, I wanted it so it would not send the user an email notice that an account was created for them, and the variable you listed says it won't handle that.

So now my quest is to figure out how to create accounts without Mantis sending the customer an email. :-(

Re: Wondering the best way to mass-import users

Well, this is on the Production site so I can't change how email is processed by Mantis. I will have to find a variable that prevents Mantis from sending out ANY emails, then import the users, then turn that variable back off so Mantis can continue to process emails. i hope it works, I already spamm...

Re: Wondering the best way to mass-import users

So I finally had time to code up a script to grab all users from our active directory forest and stuff it into a csv file in the proper format. I ran the latest version of your plugin and it seemed to work perfectly, skipping accounts that already exist. Yay! Thank you so much for this. Plus, it giv...

Re: Wondering the best way to mass-import users

I will need some time to test it because I need to write the code to grab the employee data from active directory and stuff it into a csv flat file. but I can at least manually edit the sample csv file you supplied to test it I guess...will let you know.
