Summary0001706: Feature: Generic integration using link templates to BTS
DescriptionHello everybody.

In my opinion it would be very useful to provide one more integration for bug trackers, that uses link templates for the basic operations:
 * create a bug for a project from a failed test case
 * show a bug created from the test case.

Good bug trackers are restful, so you can pass all relevant data through the url.

Test link could use two link templates for those two operations, for example:
 *{projectname}/create/?title={title}&description={description} [^]
 *{projectname}/{bugid} [^]

So you could integrate any bugtracker that uses a good link structure.

For mantis that link temlates could be:
 *{project}&summary={title}&description={description} [^]
 *{bugid} [^]

You have analized just a little portion of work to be done.
you need :

-add new configuration table to map TL concept to BTS concepts, example
 when I'm testing test case 1 on test suite 4 that is a test suite of test suit 5
  on test plan XXX, how I map these data to (example mantis), project and category.

- How TL will receive info about BUGID created ?

Anyway, if you want to help us to develop a complete and working solution you are welcome

The mapping was not meant to be done automatically.

As with the other bugtrackers the user should create the bug by herself. The linktemplate could help to prefill fields of the bug. And with the template it would be more generic and could be used with any bugtracker.

The BUGID would be entered by the user.

How TL recognize which value {project} should use in your example?

I thought the TL projectname could be used.

When using different tools within your project infrastructure, you will use the same projectname in your tools anyway.

I think it would be already very good if you can ask the status of a defect through the link. the respons would be just what your ask.
eg. ./integrator.php?id=313requestfield=status.
this could be implemented in the different methods you already use in the integration with trac.
the methods that are used for database connection could be a request to a webserver (http request, or webservice request,...preferably http wich is easier to implement).

your solution works only if BTS has already a html page that can give you info you are requesting, then is nothing that can be done in a generic way on TL.

therefore i would create the web page that gives the info from the bugtracking system. as an example. I know how to get info from clearquest(veryu old version) through a com api, and can use this com in web.
so i would actualy create a translation web page between these two systems.
