Description Tony Fu 2012-06-14 00:58:53 EDT
Description of problem:

the new RPC call ExternalBugs.update_external_bug() can't update ext_bz_bug_id and ext_bz_type_id
How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Using the ExternalBugs.update_external_bug() function to update an external tracker's info for a specific bug (I used bz-web2-test.devel.redhat.com as the bz stance), for example

$call = $rpc->call('ExternalBugs.update_external_bug', {ids=>[6683],ext_bz_type_id => 72,  ext_description=>'migrate', ext_bz_bug_id => '15223'});

2. Go to the bug which supposes to be updated and check External tracker section
Actual results:
the Summary of external tracker has been updated, but tracker type (ext_bz_type_id) and ID (ext_bz_bug_id) hasn't been changed.

Expected results:

the tracker type and id should be changed to the new values.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Simon Green 2012-06-14 01:03:43 EDT
The correct solution is to delete the existing tracker and add a new one. Information like the status, priority, etc would be tainted, so not being able to update the type and id is very intentional.
