|Summary||0012253: Graphviz Graph to display workflow - PATCH|
A workflow graph is helpful once your mantis workflow gets bigger or when you simply want to explain the flow to someone.
HERE IS A PATCH to have the graph displayed on the workflow transitions page (/manage_config_workflow_page.php)
To make it work, you need the relationship graph enabled.
The attached tgz also contains a sample resulting image.

Fantastic patch Bernard! I've applied this new feature to the 1.3.x branch.
I've taken your patch and refactored/cleaned/extended it a little bit. Please see the commit message attached to this bug for the full details. I hope these changes are within your original intentions for your patch. I'm happy to discuss ways to improve this functionality.
is there a possibility to include this feature also in 1.2.x? I tried to apply the changes from the git commit to my 1.2.8 installation, but no workflow graph shows up on the page 'Workflow Graph', only the message, that this setting only applies to project xyz. I have switched on the relationship graphs and they are showing up properly. Any suggestions?
Marking as 'acknowledged' not resolved/closed to track that change gets ported to master-2.0.x branch
MantisBT: master 596097f3

|Issue 0012253: Implement management page to view workflow graph
Bernard de Rubinat contributed a patch to implement a workflow graph
using the existing GraphViz API for rendering. This patch will add a new
page the Manage => Configuration menu to show a graph of the workflow
(status transitions) for the currently selected project.
The proposed functionality was cleaned up and extended in the following
1) Added workflow_api for functions that are used for working with
workflows. This API is already used by two MantisBT pages.
2) Place the workflow graph on a separate page in the management
console. There wasn't enough space within the
3) Use the 'dot' tool for generating the graph rather than 'neato'. This
new format is more suitable for displaying workflows.
4) Refactored the code used to print the manage configuration menu. This
newer format would be better used as a generic print_menu(...) function
in the future (serving multiple different menus).
