Automated Bugzilla email reports

Bugzilla has a very interesting feature called Whining. With it you can schedule reports to be automatically sent by email to you or anyone else in your team.

As an example, I have sent to me on the weekend a report of all items that were created or worked by our dev team in the past week.

Creating a whining report is pretty easy:

  • save a search criteria that interests you (eg. all open items, items closed in X days, etc);
  • fing at the bottom of the Bugzilla page a “whining” link;
  • create the subject and description of the email;
  • select the mailing interval;
  • recipients;
  • and saved report.

This way you’ll have a nice list on your mailbox with the bugzilla tasks that are most important to you.

  3. Since the electronic mail has been used, the normal postal service has gotten improved, so the delivery time is decreased, the envelopes are more appealing to the eyes and intuitive. Because of these changes, now for a local business, sending newsletters is now easier with normal postal services.
