Bugzilla 3.2 missing "Private in Issue Tracker" option
Last modified: 2013-06-23 22:17:58 EDT
Description of problem:
When adding a comment to a BZ, there's a check-box for "Private in Issue
Tracker" in addition to "Private" and "Add Me to Cc List".
The "Private in Issue Tracker" option is missing when adding an attachment to
To make an attachment private in Issue Tracker, one can either make the
attachment private and later remove the private flag, or one can leave it public

Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.2 of the Bugzilla codebase and therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in the new code.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
Actually, with BZ 3.2, the "Private in Issue Tracker" option is completely gone -- both for comments and attachments -- so now if I want a private comment in Issue Tracker but public in BZ, I have to
a) click the private check-box
b) commit the comment/attachment
c) undo the private check-box for the just-submitted-comment/attachment
d) commit again
We decided that Issue Tracker would handle this logic on it's end. Bugzilla sends the comment and all other information that Issue Tracker needs to make the decision on whether the comment is public/private. That is why the checkbox is no longer available.
Please comment/reopen the RT ticket if you have feedback on this issue.
