Dashboard is a view for the Mantis Bug Tracker. It features:
- An average age of bugs graph
- Number of bugs assigned by user
- Oldest bugs list
- Top opener/closer for the day
- A priority bugs alert for any block, major or crash bug
The average age graph calculates the average age of all open bugs.
Dashboard is meant to be run on and Apache web server with PHP > 5 and PDO support. It is best viewed in Chrome, but also works alright in FireFox. It is designed to be displayed on a 1080p TV, but also works well as a Web Clip item on Mac OS X or viewed in a browser.
A simple table is required for keeping track of the average age of bugs. Here is the MySQL necessary to create this table:
CREATE TABLE `bugs_average` ( `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, `date` date DEFAULT NULL, `average` int(11) DEFAULT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (`id`), UNIQUE KEY `date` (`date`) ) ENGINE=MyISAM AUTO_INCREMENT=0 DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;
Add your Mantis and Dashboard database settings to api/_config.php. You also need to add a list of Mantis usernames you want to be included on the Dashboard as well as any project ids you want to exclude.
