|Summary||0007020: Custom field can become a parameter in an HTML link|
Is it possible to include a special type of custom field that, once populated in an issue, becomes a parameter in an HTML link.
This way, for example, one can hyperlink Mantis issues to other data/docs in web-based databases.
Great idea. I would use that too to reference documents in other systems. For example, hardware uses a custom defect tracking system. Given a standard ULR I could just append the defect number that the user entered to the URL. The same would work for specification and memo systems.
Vote +1; This would be a great feature for linking to other bug systems or other projects' bug trackers.
I currently have the situation where I have my own mantis installation for my software but bugs are being filed in Debian's bug tracker for bugs in my software; I'd like to open bugs in my database and link to the bug reports on Debian's bug tracker.
Perhaps this could be resolved for all custom fields by adding a "Display As" selection that could be: raw value, URL.
By separating the value from the display we can still search on the raw value easily but display the value in a different format.
