Starting Mantis 1.1.0a4, it is possible to add your own custom relationships. In this example, we will add “origin of” and “originates from” relationships. These relationships will be supported the same way as native relationships: i.e. in View Issue page, relationship graphs, filters and email notifications.
Create custom_constants_inc.php in Mantis root folder and add the following code to it:
Create custom_relationships_inc.php in Mantis root folder and add the following code to it:
<?php $g_relationships[ BUG_CUSTOM_RELATIONSHIP_ORIGIN_OF ] = array( '#forward' => true, '#complementary' => BUG_CUSTOM_RELATIONSHIP_ORIGINATES_FROM, '#description' => 'rel_origin_of', '#notify_added' => 'email_notification_title_for_action_origin_of_relationship_added', '#notify_deleted' => 'email_notification_title_for_action_origin_of_relationship_deleted', '#edge_style' => array ( 'style' => 'dashed', 'color' => '808080' ), ); $g_relationships[ BUG_CUSTOM_RELATIONSHIP_ORIGINATES_FROM ] = array( '#forward' => false, '#complementary' => BUG_CUSTOM_RELATIONSHIP_ORIGIN_OF, '#description' => 'rel_originates_from', '#notify_added' => 'email_notification_title_for_action_originates_from_relationship_added', '#notify_deleted' => 'email_notification_title_for_action_originates_from_relationship_deleted', '#edge_style' => array ( 'style' => 'dashed', 'color' => '808080' ), ); ?>
Following is the documentation for the metadata structure:
Create custom_strings_inc.php in Mantis root folder and add the following code to it:
<?php $s_rel_origin_of = 'origin of'; $s_rel_originates_from = 'originates from'; $s_email_notification_title_for_action_origin_of_relationship_added = 'Origin-Of Relationship Added'; $s_email_notification_title_for_action_origin_of_relationship_deleted = 'Origin-Of Relationship Deleted'; $s_email_notification_title_for_action_originates_from_relationship_added = 'Originates-From Relationship Added'; $s_email_notification_title_for_action_originates_from_relationship_deleted = 'Originates-From Relationship Deleted'; ?>
The legend below the graphs does not contain customized relationships (see issue 13203).
