Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 159552
Attachments don't work as desired & browser navigation
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:20:56 EDT
If I double-click on a bug in the Bugzilla view in Eclipse, I get a browser view
in a tab.
If I do this for a bug with attachments (or other data) there are links to the
attachments in the browser view. Right-clicking on these links seems to do
nothing. If I left-click, the attachment opens. There seems to be no way to
get back to the bug if I do this.
Several enhancements would be nice here:
- navigational controls so I can go back
- ability to open attachments in tabbed view in Eclipse
- It would be great to have a right-click option when clicking on a patch
attached to a bug to be able to apply that patch directly to the current project
(assuming Eclipse can guess how this works)
- comments show up as tree nodes below the bug in the tree view; could
attachments show up there as well please? (then one could add the verbs
requested above there as well)
This was with GNOME bugzilla, and these packages:
If I click on the attachment, it opens, but Eclipse doesn't let me save from
that window, so I have to open the bug in a web browser separately, alas, which
makes the eclipse buzilla much less useful.
I had to save the patch from a web browser somewhere temporary and tried
Eclipse's "Apply Patch..."functionality, and it's _awesome_! So this is close
to being a great feature... "just" need to locate the attachments, figure out
which are patches, and wire them up to the Apply Patch... thing
I've actually been looking into "Appy Patch" funcionality over the past few
days. There is no public API for it so I'm stuck either using internal API or
re-producing the same functionality in the bugzilla plug-in. Either way it's
worth the end result.
Patches should already show up as tree nodes. If you select the patch in the
tree it should display the text in the quick view. There are some issues with
attatchments and 2.16.* bugzilla db's. Everything should work for 2.18.*
versions though. (GNOME is 2.16.8)
Ive implemented public API for applying a patch in org.eclipse.compare (see
external bugzilla reference). It should be included in eclipse 3.2. Im going to
start implementing the auto apply patch functionality using the new API, though
users will need the modified org.eclipse.compare.
Also, you can apply patches stored in the clipboard. So, as short term solution
you can view the patch in the bugzilla quickview, copy the text, launch the
apply patch wizard from the Team menu, and choose clipboard as the patch source.
We can always carry the patch in our eclipse packages if necessary.
eclipse-bugzilla-0.1.1_fc-1 now includes a "Apply as Patch..." option for
- Handle other types of attachments (view image, etc..)
- Only offer apply patch for MIME type "text/*"
- Browser navigation controls
- attchment views (originally suggested as tabbed in comment 0)
perhaps some type of attachment summary view for any given tree node. This way
you could view all attachments for all nodes below the selected node. (all
attachments associated with a bug, a query, a folder, or a provider)

We are now shipping Mylyn which obsoletes the old bugzilla plugin.
