Download and Installation

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

First we make changes to source code Bugzilla (for v.3.2) in file Bugzilla/WebService/, this change is optional :

diff -u Bugzilla/WebService/  Bugzilla/WebService/
---     2010-09-13 10:42:17.000000000 +0300
+++      2010-09-13 11:08:38.000000000 +0300
@@ -95,6 +95,7 @@
         $item{'internals'}        = $bug;
         $item{'id'}               = type('int')->value($bug->bug_id);
         $item{'summary'}          = type('string')->value($bug->short_desc);
+        $item{'dependson'}        = $bug->dependson;
         if (Bugzilla->params->{'usebugaliases'}) {
             $item{'alias'} = type('string')->value($bug->alias);

Now, Bugzilla will give us information about the bugs that affect the specified bug (“Depends on” field).

Configure the plugin using the “Admin” panel - > “Configuration Settings” → “Plugin Settings” or edit file lib/plugins/bugzillaxmlrpc/conf/default.php

Syntax and Usage

Syntax simple :


where the XXXXX - numeric id of bug.

For example :


The plugin will generate output to screen like :

  • Bug #12345 Product 1 -> flash problem (Opened: 2010.09.06 10:30, Status: ASSIGNED, Deadline: 2010-09-15)
    • Bug #11223 Product 1 -> Lorem ipsum (Opened: 2010.08.01 11:55, Status: CLOSED, Deadline: 2010-09-01)
    • Bug #10445 Product 2 -> Nulla ut turpis vitae diam (Opened: 2010.09.01 15:05, Status: NEW, Deadline: 2010-09-30)


Unfortunately the plugin is created for Bugzilla 3.2 and is not compatible with what I've got installed 4.0.2. If you have a newer version I would be more than happy to give it a try :)
