This guide is for Bugzilla administrators.

Creating products

When creating new products, certain steps must be followed to create them properly.

  1. Create a new Extras product.
  2. Check 'Closed for bug entry'.
  3. Check 'Create chart datasets for this product'.
  4. Set vote/votes/votes (20/1/3).
  5. Fill in product/description following the template from other products.
  6. Optionally fill in URL for milestones.
  7. Click 'Add'.
  8. Next you pick the link to edit the product.
  9. Click 'Edit Group Access Controls'.
  10. Somewhere in the list you'll see Default NA for the product you're editing, change that to Shown NA
    • If you don't do this, then people who file bugs and are member of that group will file bugs that only they can see typically that'll basically be the admins, until someone actually hands out membership.
  11. Submit
  12. Back in the editproduct, click editcomponents.
  13. Set up the components according to your template.
  14. Back in edit product, uncheck 'Closed for bug entry'.
  15. Update

The product and its components should now be visible and in working order.

Creating virtual users

Virtual users are used to create watchable QA contacts for components.

  1. Create a new user.
  2. Pick a user to use as a template (e.g., one of these).
  3. The login should follow the format (for Extras products) of <component>@<product>.garage.bugs. So, for Canola's website component, it would be www@canola.garage.bugs.
  4. Randomly mash the keyboard for the password.
  5. Include the word 'watchable' as the disable text.
  6. Then create the user.
