Summary0003244: Fix MantisBT Source Integration plugin malfunctioning
DescriptionPosting ticket as a reference to get this issue fixed because it does shave down time/eliminates tasks for the devs when it does function.
As of writing this ticket:
  • None of the Github<->MantisBT integration keywords work, such as:
  • New commits to GH are not automatically visible in MantisBT unless they are manually refreshed.
  • Some commits aren't visible through Mantis. When clicking through them on Mantis they 404 on GH. This is due to an original broken installation of Source Integration.
This is a shame because most of the devs were using Source Integration at one point but now aren't maintaining the habit since it's broken.

Strange, none of the plugin settings have changed, and I don't remember us changing the regex for the keywords so I'm not sure what could have precipitated this... besides updating the plugin when I updated MantisBT to 2.8.0.

Well, I've updated the commits from Nov 2017 -> Mar 2018... bug 0001234

@Kunda1 It seems like point 1 in this bug is fixed (see the working link in previous post.)

It might be possible to troubleshoot point 2 further with a test Github repo and MantisBT installation (e.g. on, which I could help you try if you're interested), but it seems likely that it's related to point 3, which in turn is basically a manifestation of our problem with the shared hosting.

Perhaps since the tracker performs the worst in prod vs staging (see showing ~8s vs ~2s load time)
it would be worth investigating? If we can get it to work consistently in staging, where we have full access, it might warrant trying to move for a new on vejmarie's servers.

@kkremitzki point 1 refers to these keywords:

cːFreeCADː709d2f325db0490016807b8fa6f49d1c867b6bd8ː (this should reference a commit)
dːFreeCADː709d2f325db0490016807b8fa6f49d1c867b6bd8ː (this should reference a diff)
pːFreeCADː498ː (this should reference a PR)
And these should work. (and as you can see they don't)

If we can get it to work consistently in staging, where we have full access, it might warrant trying to move for a new on vejmarie's servers.

I think this is ultimately the solution we should pursue. It could take care of many of the other roadblocks at once.
@yorik & @wmayer care to weigh in on this ?

If it works on and not on, yes, I would vote to migrate it there. Not having the source integration is really a PITA.

Redirecting to is easy, but there are hundreds of places, mainly on the forum, that link directly to bug pages the tracker. We should decide what to do there. Maybe it's possible to have a more complex redirection system that would redirect each old bug ID URL to a new one?

@yorik Complex redirection is somewhat limited by the level of control we have for the shared hosting--we can't really add/enable Apache modules, so we are limited to .htaccess files. The reason I suggested instead of is because I am not sure it's actually possible with the current Apache config to do the latter, but the former can just be done via DNS. It also has the benefit of being a little more secure (i.e. a vuln on can more easily affect anything on, but a vuln on wouldn't as easily affect

I think I managed to make the plugin work again!! The problem was apparently the "secret" password that you must define on mantis, and give to github... The autogenerated password didn't seem to work, I made one manually and now it works.

On next commits, please help me by coming here and watch the page right after your commit, I'm still not 100% sure it happens immediately...

@yorik take a look at 0003244:0011007
Those examples should actually show up as links but they done.

Looks like in the last fix that @yorik made which restored a ton of functionality there were some commits in the github repo between some certain recent dates, that didn't get imported in to the Source Integration plugin. I'm not sure if it's worth the time to fix this or just close this issue and move on?

I've fixed this with a script on the server.
