Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 182262
Linked ITs showing negative scoring
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:38:15 EDT
Description of problem:
When creating a new Bugzilla entry (irrespective of product/other settings, it
seems) and you link an IT to the BZ, the IT will be listed with a negative score.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Issue Tracker: 4.1
(Latest production Bugzilla and Issue Tracker releases as of 20060221)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new bug
2. Link an existing IT to the new bug
3. Check the IT score.
Bugzilla reports the Issue Tracker scoring as -1.
BZ should be reporting the correct issue-tracker scoring.
Example bugzilla entries: 182239 / 176924
Are you entering the IT ID in the Bugzilla interface or are you doing the
linking from with in the Issue Tracker web interface? It makes a difference
depending on how you added the number. If you enter the Issue ID through
Bugzilla, then Bugzilla automatically gives the score of -1. If you create the
link using Issue Tracker it will pass in the correct score at the time it makes
the addIT() XMLRPC call. Otherwise, Issue Tracker will come around and update
the scores at a later time using a cron job or when the score is updated in
Issue Tracker to something else. The it will be something other than -1. Scores
of 0 mean that the corresponding Issue in IT was closed and IT updated the score
in BZ's database.
