Re: Issues marked 'Resolved' when they're not

I have another policy-oriented response to this. I see people resolving tickets at the wrong time too, and it sometimes really annoys me. The question is : What exactly is Resolved? Is a ticket resolved when the developer finishes coding? What status should be used after In Progress? This is where w...

Re: Issues marked 'Resolved' when they're not

You're talking about Workflow Transitions. Select the project in the top-right of the tracker. Go to Manage > Manage Configuration > Workflow Transitions. The grid can be intimidating but it's very simple. Just look at each row/status as "this is where a ticket is now". Then in each column...

Re: Email output could be much prettier

I've brought this up previously and got an answer like "Well, we've done MantisBT for years and have never heard anyone complain so won't put this on the list." I get really aggravated with responses like that too. They discourage innovation and user engagement. HOWEVER, for this specific...

Re: Can't get EasyEnter to work

I believe this is the plugin?
https://github.com/mantisbt-plugins/EasyEnter
That looks useful. :)

I suggest you contact the author. His address is in EasyEnter.php.
Please ask him to post a solution to this forum!
Thanks.

Re: Mantis und KeyPass

I use this sequence in KeePass for some Mantis sites: {DELAY=60}{HOME}+{END}{UserName}{ENTER}{DELAY 1000}{HOME}+{END}{Password}{ENTER} This sequence takes much more time but it is much more detailed and never fails with any Mantis site. {DELAY=80}{HOME}+{END}{DELAY 500}{UserName}{DELAY 1000}{ENTER}{...

Re: Adding new value to g_status_enum_string - without altering exiting data

To be clear, are you trying to move a ticket from Resolved to Deployed?
Based on the workflow settings, no status other than Resolved allows moving forward to Deployed ... which makes sense.

Re: Calculate value for custom field on updating issue

Yes ... if I understand you correctly. From what I understand about what you're doing, you need the events for after user data has been entered, and before it has been posted to the database. See details under: https://www.mantisbt.org/docs/master/en-US/Developers_Guide/html/dev.eventref.bug.action....

Re: Adding new value to g_status_enum_string - without altering exiting data

FWIW, I just looked through it closely and it looks good to me. I see you don't have an In Progress status, so tasks go directly from Assigned to Resolved and you don't care exactly when someone is actually working on it - if it's assigned then it's assumed to be in progress. Other than this questio...

Re: Create new View page or Export

Yes, Queries would be good to simply report data. But we would lose the formatting and functionality provided by the View page. For example, clicking on fields, and especially mass updates of selected records. There still needs to be a link between the fields selected for a query and the fields whic...

Better use of Change Log - Fixed In Version

I'd like to understand how others use Change Logs between "published" updates. Example: v1 and v2 are major releases. v1.1 and v1.2 are minor updates v1.1.1 and v1.1.2 are patches which are released as required but they will appear in 1.2 when it is released. Someone enters at ticket again...
