Description rhev-integ 2013-09-23 03:47:21 EDT
Description of problem:
When getting bug information with Bug.get, the values for the external bugs ids are returned as integers instead of strings, thus loosing any padding 0's that they had in the database (for example salesforce external ids)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Do a Bug.get of any bug with an external bug that has an id with padding 0's (like bug 1006659)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Execute Bug.get of bug 1006659

Actual results:
You get in the data:
     'ext_bz_bug_id': 945592,

Expected results:
You get in the data:
     'ext_bz_bug_id': '00945592',

This should be a fairly simple change to the code. We should be careful to give advance warning of this change to anyone who has scripts that care about this field.
Comment 4 Simon Green 2013-11-03 18:32:54 EST
This change is now live. If there are any issues, do not reopen this bug.
Instead, you should create a new bug and reference this bug.
