The Mantis extension allows users to display a list of MantisBT tickets on a page.

By default it shows a color-coded table of open tickets. The following options can be customized:

  • table header on/off
  • colors on/off
  • length of summary text
  • date format
  • specify tickets by
    • bugid
    • status
    • severity
    • category
    • project
    • username
    • version (range filtering supported)
    • target_version (range filtering supported)
    • fixed_in_version (range filtering supported)
    • resolution
  • sort by multiple columns with individual sort order
  • show only certain columns
  • limit the output
  • suppress error and informational messages
  • change header names for columns
  • change the alignment of columns
  • add comments to tickets


Installation[edit]

This extension is for Mantis databases running on MySQL.

  • Grab the code via git:
cd extensions
git clone https://github.com/tessus/mwExtensionMantis.git Mantis
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once( "$IP/extensions/Mantis/Mantis.php" );
  • YesY Done – Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration[edit]

By default the following options are set by this extension:

$wgMantisConf['DBserver']         = 'localhost'; // Mantis database server
$wgMantisConf['DBport']           = NULL;        // Mantis database port
$wgMantisConf['DBname']           = '';          // Mantis database name
$wgMantisConf['DBuser']           = '';
$wgMantisConf['DBpassword']       = '';
$wgMantisConf['DBprefix']         = '';          // Table prefix
$wgMantisConf['Url']              = '';          // Mantis Root Page
$wgMantisConf['MaxCacheTime']     = 60*60*0;     // How long to cache pages in seconds
$wgMantisConf['PriorityString']   = '10:none,20:low,30:normal,40:high,50:urgent,60:immediate';
$wgMantisConf['StatusString']     = '10:new,20:feedback,30:acknowledged,40:confirmed,50:assigned,80:resolved,90:closed';
$wgMantisConf['StatusColors']     = '10:fcbdbd,20:e3b7eb,30:ffcd85,40:fff494,50:c2dfff,80:d2f5b0,90:c9ccc4';
$wgMantisConf['SeverityString']   = '10:feature,20:trivial,30:text,40:tweak,50:minor,60:major,70:crash,80:block';
$wgMantisConf['ResolutionString'] = '10:open,20:fixed,30:reopened,40:unable to duplicate,50:not fixable,60:duplicate,70:not a bug,80:suspended,90:wont fix';

You may change each one of these parameters by including it with your specified value into your LocalSettings.php below the initialization of this extension.

Set $wgMantisConf['Url'] to the root of the Mantis web page, e.g. https://www.example.com/mantis. If you don't set it or leave it empty, the Id field will not have a link to the Mantis ticket.

If you have customized or added additional fields to your MantisBT environment, you should change the last 5 parameters accordingly. The correct strings ($g_priority_enum_string, $g_status_enum_string, $g_status_colors, $g_severity_enum_string, $g_resolution_enum_string) can be found in the file config_defaults_inc.php in your Mantis directory.

Performance Considerations[edit]

Some of the filters use columns for which no corresponding indexes exist in the Mantis database. The same is true for columns that can be used in orderby to sort the output.

If you experience performance issues, please talk to your Mantis database admin. In most cases performance should not be an issue, unless you have millions of bugs in your Mantis database, in which case you should consider to scrap your product anyway. 😏

Usage[edit]

This extension can be used with XML-like syntax in the wiki edit view. The parameters control what data and how it will be displayed. See the following sections for information on each parameter. By default it will show a color-coded table of open tickets.

<mantis/>

Mantis example1.png

To display the last 3 'assigned' tickets without header and without colorized rows showing columns Id, Status, Updated, and Summary:

<mantis>
status = assigned
header = false
color  = false
count  = 3
show   = id, status, updated, summary
</mantis>

Parameters[edit]

Parameters are set in the format parameter=value. Whitespaces are ignored.

bugid[edit]

bugid specifies a single ticket or a list of tickets (separated by comma). If only a single ticket is specified, header and color are turned off automatically. They can be turned on again, by setting them explicitly. If the ticket is (or the tickets are) not found, an informational message is displayed unless suppressinfo is set to true.

Parameter bugid
Format value [, value, ...]
Value(s) a Mantis ticket id
Default

header[edit]

header decides, if a table header will be displayed. The default value is true unless a single bugid is specified. The parameter can be set to true or false, whereas on and yes are aliases for true, and off and no are aliases for false. If the input value is not recognized, it will be ignored and the default value will be used.

Parameter header
Format value
Value(s) true|yes|on, false|no|off
Default true

color[edit]

color decides, if the table will be color-coded. The default value is true unless a single bugid is specified. The parameter can be set to true or false, whereas on and yes are aliases for true, and off and no are aliases for false. If the input value is not recognized, it will be ignored and the default value will be used.

Parameter color
Format value

Format value [, value, ...]
Value(s) version
Default

target_version[edit]

target_version allows to filter tickets by target_version. Only target_versions defined in the database are valid. If the input value is not recognized, it will be ignored.

Range Filtering is supported. Please see section Range Filtering for more details.

Parameter target_version
Format value [, value, ...]
Value(s) target version
Default

fixed_in_version[edit]

fixed_in_version allows to filter tickets by fixed_in_version. Only fixed_in_versions defined in the database are valid. If the input value is not recognized, it will be ignored.

Parameter category
Format value [, value, ...]
Value(s) open, fixed, reopened, unable to duplicate, not fixable, duplicate, not a bug, suspended, wont fix
Default

orderby[edit]

orderby determines by which columns the table is sorted. The default value is updated desc, which is the date the ticket was last updated with a reverse sort order (most recent tickets first). Valid values are id, project, category, severity, priority, status, username, created, updated, version, target_version, fixed_in_version, resolution, and summary. The additional values asc and desc can be appended to specify the sort order for that column. If the input value is not recognized, it will be ignored and the default value will be used. Instead of orderby, the aliases sortkey or ordermethod may be used.

Note: status, property, severity, and resolution are sorted by their numerical value (see Configuration), not their name.

Parameter orderby, ordermethod, sortkey
Format value [asc|desc| [, value [asc|desc], ...]
Value(s) id, project, category, severity, priority, status, username, created, updated, version, target_version, fixed_in_version, resolution, summary
Default updated desc

order[edit]

Note: This option is deprecated, but still available for backwards compatibilty. It will be ignored unless orderby specifies a single column without a sort order!

order decides the sort direction. The value can be descending (default, most recent to oldest, z to a) or ascending (oldest to most recent, a to z). desc is an alias for descending, and asc is an alias for ascending. If the input value is not recognized, it will be ignored and the default value will be used.

Parameter order
Format value
Value(s) asc|ascending, desc|descending
Default desc

count[edit]

count restricts the number of results that are shown. There is no default value. If the input value is not recognized, it will be ignored.

Parameter summarylength
Format value
Value(s) max length of summary text
Default

suppresserrors[edit]

suppresserrors hides database errors, like connection errors. The value can be true (hide errors) or false (default, show errors). on and yes are aliases for true, and off and no are aliases for false. If the input value is not recognized, it will be ignored and the default value will be used.

Parameter suppresserrors
Format value
Value(s) true|yes|on, false|no|off
Default false

suppressinfo[edit]

suppressinfo hides informational messages, e.g. that no ticket with a specified bugid was found or that there are no tickets with a certain status. The value can be true (hide informational messages) or false (default, show informational messages). on and yes are aliases for true, and off and no are aliases for false. If the input value is not recognized, it will be ignored and the default value will be used.

Parameter suppressinfo

Range Filtering[edit]

Range Filtering is available for the following options: version, target_version, and fixed_in_version

Following operators are available: gt, ge, lt, le.

Operator Meaning
gt greater than
ge greater than or equal to
lt less than
le less than or equal to

Maximal two operators are allowed.

Format op value [, op value]
op gt, ge, lt, le
value version

Examples:

<mantis>
status = resolved, closed
fixed_in_version = gt 2.71

It is also possible to restrict the range on both ends:

status = resolved, closed
fixed_in_version = gt 2.71, le 3.0
