Looks great at first sight!

Something like this should be delivered with standard MantisBT.

Would also be a good way for potential new users to see what is possible concerning configuration in MantisBT.
They hardly would read the whole documentation to get an impression of all the configuration parameters.

Hi Folks,

Over the last 12 months I've been customising Mantis (1.1.x) for a client and I'm keen to feed back as much of the work as I can into the community.

One of the client's requirements was to allow an "administrator" to configure MantisBT without requiring command line access (and hence access to config_inc.php, lang/*, etc). We found that they were struggling to use the adm_config_report.php page as they weren't really technical so I created some screens to help them.

I've wrapped this code up into a 1.2.x plugin called Configuration Manager that I've installed to http://mantisbt.bungybunny.com (login admin/admin). Note that I don't consider this plugin to be of release quality yet. Feel free to hack about in there; I have a baseline restore if required.

Point is that it wouldn't take too much for me to bend the code into some form of dashboard if people would be interested in that?...

Rgds
Andy

Yes, creating something that is similar to existing solutions is the
easiest path. Thanks for the references.

If anyone wants to scratch this itch and attempt an implementation,
feel free to make an announcement here so we can discuss details.
