Is it posible to edit custom bugzilla fields with mylyn?
I know there is limited support for custom fields in bugzilla. The bugzilla
I use is an extended version of bugzilla 3.0 with custom fields. Because I'm
only a user to this bugzilla I don't know if it uses the custom fields from
bugzilla or if it is a modified version. Though I will try to get the
information.

Thanks, Tobias

Hi Tobias,

as far as I know you need to have administration rights.

Mylyn only supports the use of custom fields and not the definition.


Here the text from the administration page of bugzilla 3.1.2

Bugzilla lets you define fields which are not implemented by default, based on
your local and specific requirements. These fields can then be used as any other
field, meaning that you can set them in bugs and run any search involving them.
Before creating new fields, keep in mind that too many fields may make the user
interface more complex and harder to use. Be sure you have investigated other
ways to satisfy your needs before doing this.

Regards

Frank

Tobias,

If you're wondering if Mylyn's Bugzilla Connector support custom fields,
it is not yet supported but will be in Mylyn 3.0 (Jun 30).

To determine if the repository in question is making use of custom
fields you can open your browser to:

<your-repository-url>/show_bug.cgi?id=1&ctype=xml

The resulting configuration information will show which fields are
custom (I believe they start with cf_ but perhaps Frank can confirm this).

Yes all custom fields must start with cf_. When you create a field that prefix
get addee if not pressent.
