adding custom field in view issue overview

Post by smizzle »

Hey guys,

I'm using Mantis 1.1.8
and I want to add a custom field called "ext.ID" into the the overview of view issues.
I tried several ways, using the !Manage Configuration! in Mantis
did it like that

“view_issues_page_columns” in the “configuration option” field
Left “Type” field set to “Default”.
and added the value:

Code: Select all

array ( 'selection', 'edit', 'priority', 'id', 'sponsorship_total', 'bugnotes_count', 'attachment', 'category', 'severity', 'status', 'last_updated', 'summary', 'custom_ext.ID' );
nothing happened so I tried

Code: Select all

array( selection, edit, priority, id, sponsorship_total, bugnotes_count, attachment, category, severity, status, last_updated, summary, custom_ext.ID )


I even tried to configure config_inc.php and config_defaults_inc.php and added the following line

Code: Select all

array( selection, edit, priority, id, sponsorship_total, bugnotes_count, attachment, category, severity, status, last_updated, summary, custom_ext.ID )
under $g_view_issues_page_columns in config_inc.php and also in config_default_inc.php but nothing happened!

Can someone plz help me to add this field into the view issues table?!
The custom field ist linked to the project so I don't know where the problem is.


Thx in advance

set type to complex in confuguration page for parameter view_issues_page_columns
for example enter the following value to get Id, Status, Summary and you custom field
array (0 => id,1 => status,2 => summary, 3 => custom_custom_ext.ID)

This works for me, too. One more question:

Is it possible to add a column in the overview, where user can see the "depends on" and/or "blocks" relationship? Which option do I have to use for view_issues_page_columns to do this?
Is it possible to configure the filter in a way, that it will show me all open bugs, which do not depend on one or more other ones? How do I do that?

Thanks you in advance!
Best regards
Karl

AFIAK this can not be done with configuration.
You would have to tweak the code.
The bug_relationship_table contains the information you need.

Filtering is not possible, see

Maybe the attachment in following issue could be a starting point for you, I didn't check myself
