Different Field Name Aliases per Project?

Post by sachintha81 » May 15, 2019 3:42 pm

Is there a way to give different aliases for the same fields, based on project.

My requirement is to have different projects with different set of fields, and I know I can use custom fields for this, and then hide the unwanted fields by using the bug_report_page_fields configuration option.

But there are few primary fields, such as 'summary' and 'description' which cannot be hidden using the above mentioned option. So I'm wondering if there's a way for me to at least rename them.

For example, say I have two projects, one BUG TRACKER, and another named KNOWLEDGEBASE.

I want the summary field to be named:
'Alarm' in BUG TRACKER
'Item' in KNOWLEDGEBASE

Is this possible?

I know I can change the aliases from lang/strings_english.txt file by setting '$s_summary = 'Alarm' etc, but that is a global change and is inherited by all projects.

No, is not available as far as I know.
What you could do, is use 2 instances of mantis, each having dedicated titles for those fields.
You could arrange access to both instances via a simple portal page :mrgreen:

That's a bummer.

Well what you could is possible I guess, but would have been so much nicer if we had this feature.
