Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 471774
Workflows don't allow reporter to fail/reject fixes
Last modified: 2013-06-23 22:18:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Bug 448344 on bugzilla.redhat.com is not fixed after an update, but as the reporter the only options I have for the status are to leave it as MODIFIED or change it to CLOSED.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.1.4+ (according to the online home page)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in
2. Go to the bug
3. Notice that I can't change bug back to ASSIGNED
CLOSED is the only option to change status
Should be able to reject the fix after testing, if testing fails
Sent mail back in August as suggested (see below). Since then the front page no longer lists RETEST as a status, but just lists MODIFIED. Otherwise everything is the same.

Hi Allen, Basically the current status workflow in bugzilla only allow you to change status of bug to open state, if you were the assignee , qacontact of the bug or have editbugs permissions. none of the three applies to you so that is why you can not change the bug to an open state.
