Accessing Information from Mantis GUI via REST API

Post by jcordes74 »

Hello Fellow Bug Coders,

So I currently have a function that will create a Mantis Ticket when called on, and it would make my life SO much easier if there was a way to GET the information from the pull down menu's in the Mantis GUI using REST API. For example, when creating a ticket if the possible options for 'category' were like ("MantisBT", "Documentation", "Software", etc.) is there a way to get that information? I.e., the possible values for what can be entered in.

I've searched for a while but can't find anything. Anything anyone is willing to advise me on is greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure what you are exactly looking for, but you can retrieve the 'categories' for either
all projects (Get('.../projects/')) or a specific project (Get('.../projects/#')) over REST API.
The JSON response contains an (sub)array ('categories') for all requested projects.
