In this tutorial, let’s learn how to create custom field in Mantis Bug tracker. This is useful when we want to track more information about the issue. Custom fields allow more customization features to the issues and bugs. Fields are linked to one or more projects. After creating a project, we need to link it to the project.
Story point estimates are commonly used to measure the effort and size of the issue in Scrum framework. We will add this feature to the Mantis bug tracker to allow teams to estimate the effort in bug tracking.
