Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 82741
can't set default query without running it
Last modified: 2013-06-23 23:08:52 EDT
Description of problem:
In the old (2.8-based) bugzilla interface, it was possible to set a deafult
query without running the query. Now it seems that setting something as a
default query has to be done in conjunction with executing the query. This is
somewhat undesirable in some cases. My default query is always set to search
the current beta, rawhide, and the most recent release. I always have no
components selected. Executing that query would return a huge number of bugs.
I never actually make my default query; I just use it as a convenient starting
Luckily, it works to execute the query and stop it before it returns any resuls....
Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.
I can confirm that this "bug" is still present in Red Hat's current Bugzilla. I
can't swear to it, but I believe this problem is present in bugzilla's current
upstream as well.
It's amusing that this bug is still "new" after almost five years.
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.
I can confirm that this behavior is still present in 3.2. Maybe I should just report this to mozilla's bugzilla, which is probably what I should have done over 5 years ago....
We are running very close to stock upstream code so if you do not mind, please file this in the upstream Bugzilla and then the fix will trickle down to us.
Once you have done that post the new bug link here and close as UPSTREAM resolution.
Crossed in the mail. Here's the upstream report I just entered:
closed "upstream" as per request. Thanks.
