Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432978
bugzilla doesn't recongize RedHat email aliases
Last modified: 2012-05-30 09:45:54 EDT
Description of problem:
I ran into a problem today, when I tried to cc some people on a bz. Apparently
bugzilla could not find their email addresses and failed to allow me to cc them.
Later I found out the email addresses I was using were email aliases.
Considering I really have no way to figure out if the email address I have for a
user is an alias or not, bugzilla needs to handle this correctly.
Example aliases I had trouble with email@example.com -> firstname.lastname@example.org and
email@example.com -> firstname.lastname@example.org
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create dummy bug
2.trying adding a cc of one of the example aliases to the bug
3.watch bugzilla tell you no, can't find address
Bugzilla currently only supports one email address per user account. This will take some considerable work to implement and may best be coordinated with the upstream.
As part of the recent Bugzilla 2.4 upgrade the Bugzilla team are cleaning up bugs opened against old versions of Bugzilla. This bug has been flagged as an old bug and will be CLOSED WONTFIX in 7 days time.

Thanks, the Bugzilla team.

You can only CC: an address that has an account in Bugzilla. The fact it is an alias isn't relevant. There are many e-mail aliases that are users in Bugzilla.
