Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432129
Reporter Can't Close Bug
Last modified: 2013-06-23 22:27:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try and resolve bug you reported (e.g. bug 177547 for me)
I get the following message: "You tried to change the Status field from
NEEDINFO to CLOSED, but only the owner or submitter of the bug, or a autorized
user, may change that field."
Bug should be closed as I am the reporter of the specified bug. Also note
that it should be "an authorized user" not "a autorized user".
I believe that it should be enough for you just to comment on the bug, attach
patch, and the real maintainer should evaluate the patch and close the bug when
she is satisfied with your proposed solution.
I would strongly lobby for WONTFIX in this case.
177547 is a RHEL bug and for that only redhat employees or people who are in the
rhel_beta group can close RHEL bugs.

I am reopening the bug. Bugzilla is not working as documented. If that is the
behaviour that you want then the error message should be changed to indicate how
the system actually works.

> Patch looks good Noura. Feel free to commit and we can push it in the next
cool Thanks for the review Dave. committed to cvs now
clearer error messages applied to the code now that should give clearer idea why
unauthorized bug reporters can not close rhel bugs. should be live when new
bugzilla package is pushed live in about a week.
