Filtering Email Notifications
Bugzilla sends emails with many headers. The following headers can be very useful for sorting email: X-Bugzilla-Watch-Reason: contains fields (like 'AssignedTo', 'CC') of the bug and the email address being watched (firstname.lastname@example.org) X-Bugzilla-Product: should always be 'GlusterFS' for Gluster bugs X-Bugzilla-Component: the component of the bug (like 'glusterd') X-Bugzilla-Status: you may want to filter 'NEW' bugs in a special folder * X-Bugzilla-Keywords: new contributors may want to filter bugs marked with EasyFix
It is recommended to filter the emails from the list in a dedicated folder. Some users only move/label messages on certain headers and delete everything else that comes through the mailing list.
For example, to receive mails of the component glusterd,
using Zimbra mail client, go to Preferences select New Filter Add Filter Name Include and apply a rule as * Header Named X-Bugzilla-Component contains glusterd
using Mozilla Thunderbird mail client, go to Tools select Message Filters select New.. Add Filter Name In the rules section, select Customize Add New message header name as X-Bugzilla-Component * Now include and apply a rule as * X-Bugzilla-Component contains glusterd
The email@example.com mailing list gets added by default to new bugs. Anyone can subscribe to the list in order to receive all updates on all Gluster bugs.
'Watch' a user in Bugzilla
It is possible to use the Bugzilla "watches" function to receive updates on bug reports where the firstname.lastname@example.org pseudo-user is on CC.
go to https://bugzilla.redhat.com and log in
go to your preferences
go to the email tab
on the bottom of the page, under "user watching", add "email@example.com"
The URLs below can be added to an RSS reader (like Mozilla Thunderbird or feedly). When you prefer a list of bugs on the Bugzilla website, open the RSS-feed in your browser and remove the ctype=atom from the end of the URL.
