TIP BugzillaLinkPlugin is not installed on Foswiki.org.


This plugin provides shorthand for linking to Bugzilla bugs without specifying a URL in longhand. It is most useful if you are using a local copy of Bugzilla for issue/ticket/bug tracking, and want to reference it from your topic.


Short hand references for:
  • Individual bugs
  • Lists of bugs assigned to a given milestone (or its beta)
  • Lists of bugs matching one or more keywords
  • Lists of the specified user's assigned bugs

The URLs and text prompts are fully configurable

Syntax Rules

The following %BUG*{...}% short hand references are supported:
Short hand reference What it does
%BUG{#####}% Creates a link to a specific bug.
%BUGLISTMS{target_milestone}% Creates a link to a list of bugs with the specified target_milestone.

Creates a link to a list of bugs with one or more of the specified keywords.

Using comma separators will generate an OR-type search.
%MYBUGS{user@some.domain}% Creates a link to a list of bugs assigned to user@some.domain.
