Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 802138
BZ: Bug.update does not work as documented for summary updates
Last modified: 2013-06-23 21:54:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Following xmlrpc interface documentation for Bug.update:
short_desc|summary (string) - New bug summary.
This suggests that either 'short_desc' or 'summary' can be used as a key in the updates hash passed to the api. However, only 'short_desc' works and no change is made when 'summary' is used instead.
Definitely a bug, but it won't be fixed. We will inherit Mozilla's Bug.update when we release 4.2, and their documentation on this too.
AFAICS, upstream documentation says 'summary' should work.
Keeping 'short_desc' working and not 'summary' does not seem to help write code that does not break after we go to 4.x.
Can our documentation be corrected, possibly with warning that is going to break with 4.x?

No. Bugzilla 3.6 is now in maintenance mode. Only security fixes or major bugs will be fixed in future releases.
