The Jenkins project announced an unresolved security vulnerability affecting the current version of this plugin (why?):

Mantis Plugin

This plugin integrates Mantis Bug Tracker to Jenkins. Mantis is a free popular web-based bugtracking system written in PHP scripting language.
This plugin decorates Hudson "Changes" HTML to create links to your Mantis issues, and update issues with private / public notes.
As an example, if you committed a change with the following log message (which is configurable see Project Configuration):

fix issue #410

Mantis keys in changelogs are now hyperlinked to the corresponding Mantis issue pages (complete with tooltips),
and Mantis issues are also updated with note as following.

This plugin only supports Mantis 1.1.0 and above.


System Configuration

First, you need to go to system config screen to tell Jenkins where's your Mantis.

  • URL - the root URL of your Mantis installation, eg.
  • Version - version of your Mantis installation. 1.1.X or 1.2.X(1.2.0a3 and later, this is experimental)
  • User Name, Password - user name and password of your Mantis installation to update relevant Mantis issues.

Project Configuration

In the top section, select the url of your Mantis installation.

  • %ID% is placeholder which means Mantis issue id.
  • Project and Category is mandatory for "File a ticket when build is broken or unstable".

Update Mantis issue

In the Post-build Actions section, choose "Updated relevant Mantis issues" (option).

This plugin updates Mantis issues if build is stable or unstable.

File a ticket if build is broken or unstable

In the Post-build Actions section, choose "File a ticket to Mantis" (option).

To Update Mantis issues, Mantis user must have at least "DEVELOPER".

Trouble Shooting

If you have ran into trouble,

  1. Select New Log Recorder in System log screen.
  2. Configure Log Recorder. Logger is "hudson.plugins.mantis", log level is "finest". and save.
  3. Update Mantis issue...
  4. See System log. Check SOAP request and response.

Use BASIC_AUTH (Workaround)
