Integrating with Mantis enhances project management by seamlessly transferring TestMonitor issues to your Mantis Bug Tracking system.


If you are using Mantis Bug Tracking for the management of your bugs, you can integrate TestMonitor with the system to automate your workflow. TestMonitor provides you with test management features like data links and reports that make it the best place to originate issues from your testing. By integrating TestMonitor with Mantis, you’ll effortlessly send the useful information issues contain to create bugs, without having to manually copy this data. 

You’ll easily be able to trace back the link between TestMonitor issues and Mantis bugs to track their progress. Every bug sent over to Mantis will have a link back to TestMonitor. The integration will also let you select if some or all TestMonitor issues will become a bug in Mantis.
