I am using a bugzilla repository and our admin recently renamed an attribute. How do I get mylyn to reflect the attribute change in the editor? It is currently showing the old naming convention.

I am not certain, as I use Tasktop Dev and not Mylyn, but here are two things to try.
Also, it is not letting me use links! So I will have to describe how to find things.

The first comes from the Mylyn FAQ; search for
mylyn refresh attributes faq
and take the Eclipsepedia entry; search for
Why are my updated repository attributes not showing up?‎
but I think that it is talking about the attribute *values* changing, not the names of the attributes.

I also found in the Tasktop Bugzilla FAQ (search for
tasktop refresh attributes bugzilla
and take the Mylyn FAQ - Bugzilla Connector) that Bugzilla can be set up to cache the configuration. It might be that deleting that cache will allow you to refresh.

Finally, on my Tasktop Dev, on the right-hand side of a task, I see a little blue repository cylinder with a little yellow arrow pointing to the left front of it. This has the tooltip of "Update Attributes". I don't know if Mylyn has this, and am not sure if it updates attribute names or attribute values.

I hope that something that I said in there was helpful!

Hi,

you will need to refresh the repository configuration. To do that open the
Task Repositories view, right click the repository and select Update
Repository Configuration.

The new attribute names and values will show after you refresh the task. To
refresh all tasks select Synchronize All Tasks from the popup menu of the
repository.
