Bugzilla Extensions

These are server-side Bugzilla Extensions that can be installed in the "extensions/" directory of Bugzilla 3.6 and above. New extensions also are published from time to time in the Bugzilla git repo.

This list should be kept in alphabetical order.

  • BzAutoComplete.png
    AutoComplete This is an extension for Bugzilla that replaces the user list, which is display if 'usemenuforusers' is enabled, with a jquery powered autocomplete text box. (Note: Not required in Bugzilla 4.0, which implements autocomplete.)
  • AssigneeList Allows Bugzilla to use a list of users defined by admins to be used as possible assignees for components/bugs (This extension was tested on 3.x and is reported to not work with 4.x)
  • Bayoteers A rich set of extensions. Agile tools, scrum, dashboard...
  • BrowserID Allows logging in to Bugzilla using BrowserID.
  • CfAutoComplete.jpg
    CfAutoComplete is a fully configurable autocomplete facility for custom fields in bug forms. Using javascript (JQuery) and the Bugzilla web services, it aims to make life easier and provide more consistent data by suggesting values to the user based on previously entered bug data. It can both take input from and provide autocompletion for other fields in the form, in addition to the field in focus.
  • Env4AD This Bugzilla extension provides a new auth_login_method that extends the default Bugzilla::Auth::Login::Env. It is especially useful if you want single sign on using mod_kerb and Active Directory but your ADs userPrincipleName is not a valid email address. It also sets a proper full name.
  • FieldHelp allows admins to specify tooltip for custom fields (Note: Not required in Bugzilla 4.0, which implements Field Long Description.)
  • GroupsIndirect allows admins to view groups who have indirect access to other groups
  • HiddenNameAndMail allows admins to map a dummy email account to users real email account and name
  • InlineImages Allows users to see images in line but does not load them on the page by default. Lets users have a quick way to see images if they want without making the page load any slower for those who are less graphically inclined.
  • MultipleEditNoEmail Provides a checkbox to not send email when changing multiple bugs at once, disregarding user preferences, user watching and global watchers. To be used for miscellaneous bug updates.
  • NextBug Adds a link that recommends similar bugs based on the textual description of the bugs stored in Bugzilla. It uses an AJAX event and, thus, it will not cause any additional overhead if it is not explicity called.
  • Profanivore Eats profanities in bug comments and replaces them with Profanivore droppings ("****").
  • Securemail Enables encrypted email for some (group-based) or all bugmail. Users can specify their own S/MIME or GPG key.
  • Sitemap Allows Bugzilla to be indexed by Google and other search engines.
  • Splinter Adds the ability to perform patch review on Bugzilla attachments. When a user uploads a patch to a bug, a link will appear next to the attachment to allow the reviewer to comment on the patch that's then added to the bug report. Also a reviewer can set a review flag from within the Splinter extension. The 4.0 version of the Splinter extension has also been tested to work well on 3.6 as well. If any changes are made that make this no longer true, a separate 3.6 repository will be created.
  • Sync Provides infrastructure for asynchronous synchronization of Bugzilla bugs with matching bugs in another defect tracking system. You have to write a "plugin" to customize it for the system you are specifically trying to integrate with.
  • TraceParser Parses stack traces that are pasted into comments, formats them nicely when comments are displayed, automatically detects duplicate traces when filing bugs, allows finding traces similar to the one you're viewing, and shows most-frequently-reported traces.
  • VCS Version Control Integration for Bugzilla! Allows associating bugs with commits in your version-control system (sometimes also called an "SCM" or "Software Configuration Management" system), and displaying information about those commits on the bug view page, with a link to see more details about the commits directly from your version control system.

IRC Bots

Bots that can inhabit IRC channels and announce bug changes and/or perform queries

  • supybot Bugzilla plugin - This plugin for supybot can query, report changes for, and describe attachments and bugs in multiple different Bugzilla installations. It even works across multiple IRC networks. It is highly configurable on a per-channel basis, and was originally written by one of the primary authors of Bugzilla itself. It is currently being used by GNOME and the Bugzilla project itself. Plugin is available at git.mozilla.org bugbot repo.
  • BZBot (direct download) - announce bug changes and perform simple milestone-based status mini-reports.
  • BZBot-bgo (direct download) - GNOME's modified version of BZBot
  • MozBot (web site) - MozBot is a general-purpose IRC bot with lots of addon modules. It ships with a module for Bugzilla that lets you perform queries against your Bugzilla and also can announce bug changes. On irc.mozilla.org we no longer use bzbot, because this module can do most of what he used to do, but if all you want is bug change announcements, MozBot might be overkill. Note: The tarballs of MozBot on the FTP server as of this writing are VERY outdated, and do not contain a working Bugzilla module. You must check MozBot out of the Mozilla CVS repository to get a working Bugzilla module.
