Edit Issue Fields: Only the "Mantis Administrator" can do that? How can this be performed by other users?

Post by seppeltronics »

Hello,

I just set up Mantis and did "Report Issue". The problem I have is to understand what I need to do so that users can edit the issues(e.g. severity). I created a user, even in the manager-mode, that was not enough that issues assigned to that user could edit fields like severity.

It's less than ideal that it requires administrator’s rights to edit these fields, and I guess, it's not required. Can someone tell me in which state the ticket/issue needs to be and what settings need to be set, in order that a "developer" or "manager" can edit fields like severity?

Thanks a lot.

Best Regards, Seppel

P.S. I run 2.24.1 because I could not get 2.25.2 to work, the installation-page was blank,... but I highly doupt it depends on the Version.

Which PHP version do you use?
If it's 8.x, this fixed bug might be your problem https://mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=27806

According the bug description It is only present in PHP 8.x, so it seams your issue is another one, see
This "worked" in PHP < 8.0,

BTW why do you use 2.24.1 but not the latest 2.24.x which is 2.24.5?

Of course it would be better to use 2.25.2, as we typically fix bugs just in latest published version and the version that is in development.
