We have a custom field within our Mantis bug track for linking to a public and internal thread from our forums.
Is it somehow possible to use that field for create web links during the import from mantis instead writing them to a custom field only?
We also have access to the importers-plugin's source code through a starter license. So we are already able to extend the issues sql query by custom fields, which are in our example two additional field containing a url in some cases.
It seems the ExternalIssue class does not have a collection for external links which could be filld from IssueTransformerVer118OrOlder.
I wrote the command line utility in C#, it's mainly retrieving all the issue of one or multiple projects and then goes through the details of an issue. If there is a custom field that contains the url and there is no "link" for this url, yet it will create a new one. So ones the iteration is done you added a link for each unique url.
The most important code can be found here: http://pastebin.com/4gE8x2XT
I just removed / replaced some urls and project keys which were related to our project. I hope it helps.
