Welcome to the source-integration wiki!
A few pointers:
There's different types of web hooks:
The web hook will send a commit/checkin to Mantis, referencing the repository and containing commit/checkin data.
http://domain/plugin.php?page=Source/checkin&api_key=API_KEY&... (some other parameters)
Some other parameters include either:
data in form of array( repo_name, data )", or
The web hook will kick Mantis, to import recent data for your repository (as you would do through Mantis: "Import Latest Data").
id is either "
all" (literally) or references the repository.
API_KEY in the URLs above should be replaced with a proper API key: it's a secret and should not be easily guessed. You can generate it as follows (as suggested by the plugin):
$ openssl rand -hex 12 116020880c26d8c8d67607dd
The above result is just an example value of an API key. Create your own!
The API key should be entered in the configuration of the Source Control Integration plugin (inside Mantis, Manage, "Manage Plugins", "Source Control Integration").
The addresses from which the API key i.e. the web hook should work must be listed in the configuration of the Source Control Integration plugin (inside Mantis, Manage, "Manage Plugins", "Source Control Integration"). If you're on Bitbucket, it will give you the ranges of IP addresses from which their web hooks will fire. I assume others do something similar. If you're using
curl to test an URL from your local machine, your local machine's public IP address should be in "Allowed Addresses" too.
