Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 251722
Unable to set an alias via XML-RPC interface
Last modified: 2013-06-23 22:51:26 EDT
Description of problem:
One of our tools would need to file bugs in bugzilla and set an alias (that is
known a the time of bug creation and never changes). Looking at the POD
documentation this doesn't seem to be possible.
I've tried to add 'alias' argument to the bugzilla.createBug call, but it did
not have any effect.
As creating or changing aliases is not a documented at all, this is certainly
not a bug. Could you please consider this to be a feature request for a feature
that would be really useful?
We have just added this feature to bugzilla.
You should be able now to set an alias via XML-RPC interface when you create a
new bug using 'alias' as a key in the data hash argument that you pass to the
bugzilla.createBug() functions ,, also if you look at the POD documentation you
should fine some explanation there as well :)
Noura: Thanks, this works perfectly for me. You can close this bug report.
