Supported authentication methods

Copy and save the generated token. Be sure not to lose it as it will only displayed this one time. If you do mis-place it, you will need to revoke it and generate a new token.

Now, when you've obtained a token, lets configure integration in Bugsee. Select "Personal token" authentication type and click "Next".

There are no any specific configuration steps for Mantis. Refer to configuration section for description about generic steps.

Custom recipes

Bugsee can accommodate all these customizations with the help of custom recipes. This section provides a few examples of using custom recipes specifically with Mantis. For basic introduction, refer to custom recipe documentation.

Setting tags field

By default Bugsee creates Mantis issues with Bugsee issue labels as Mantis tags. But labels list can be overridden inside your custom recipe. For example you can add some new label (Mantis tag) to existing ones:

function create(context) {
    // ....

    return {
        // ...
        labels: [...issue.labels, "My awesome tag"]
