Description Martin Kyral 2012-10-01 09:41:17 UTC
Created attachment 619709 [details]

Description of problem:
If processing a bug with bad (mistyped) BZ username and/or password, processing of the bug fails, giving the user no obvious way to re-enter the credentials and process the bug again.

The only way to do so, is to open abrt-gui / gnome-abrt manually, fix the BZ settings and then retry to report the issue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure wrong BZ username or password
2. try to report a bug
Actual results:
Processing fails, the failure message is:
--- Running report_Bugzilla ---
Logging into Bugzilla at https://bugzilla.redhat.com
fatal: RPC failed at server.  The username or password you entered is not valid.
(exited with 1)

and the only button in the reporting window is "Close"

Expected results:
After the BZ submit fails due to bad username/password, a dialog for fixing the BZ settings is displayed and the window contains a "Try again" button.

I agree.  A minimal work-around would put some hints in the failure message.

Thanks, Martin.  I will try to rerun abrt using the technique you outlined.

Hmm. That doesn't seem to work.  There is no gnome-abrt on my F17.  There is an abrt-gui but I don't see any way to tell it that I want to change my credentials.

Comment 2 D. Hugh Redelmeier 2012-11-17 19:35:49 UTC
Thanks to help from Sergio <sergiocmailbox-userlist@yahoo.com.br> on the Fedora Users List, I was able to change the credentials.

"Edit": "Preferences" gets you an "Even Configuration" window.

In that window, you need to select "Bugzilla: report to Bugzilla bug
tracker" and click on "Configure Event".

Then you get a window where you can adjust credentials.
