Summary0019576: Allow admins to disable Content Security Policy

Content Security Policy may cause issues in certain situations (e.g. during development, or when using plugins relying on external resources such as images or scripts).

Since we currently do not provide any mechanism for such plugins to notify MantisBT core of 'safe' external domains, we need to allow admins to disable CSP.

TagsNo tags attached.

Not sure if this is needed.
There is a configuration option $g_custom_headers

Custom headers allows the admin to add additional headers, I am not sure that this config would allow them to disable or override a previously send header (assuming the custom headers are sent after the CSP one). Need to test.

Just learned something new ;-)

You were right, CSP can effectively be disabled by adding to config_inc.php
$g_custom_headers = array( 'Content-Security-Policy:' );

I never realized this was possible.

Resolving this by documenting usage of $g_custom_headers for this purpose, both in config_defaults_inc.php and in the Admin guide.
