This package currently uses remoteobjects models, Mozilla's `_ Bugzilla `REST API`_, and optionally the Mozilla LDAP phonebook (to access bug assignees' managers & Mozilla email addresses).


Currently, this package depends on a pre-release version of remoteobjects, so we'll have to do this the long way.

  1. Check out the code:

    git clone git://
  2. (optional) Create your virtualenv using virtualenvwrapper:

    mkvirtualenv --no-site-packages bztools
  3. Install pip:

    easy_install pip
  4. Install the dependencies for bztools:

    pip install -r requirements.txt
  5. Run so the scripts are installed to your bin directory:

    python install

Now you'll have bzattach installed in the /bin directory of your virtual environment. To use the script, you'll have to activate this environment with workon bztools.

Note to developers: if you make any changes to the bugzilla/ files (agents, models, utils) during work on other scripts, you will want to re-install the scripts as instructed above in order to pick up changes



from bugzilla.agents import BMOAgent
from bugzilla.utils import get_credentials

# We can use "None" for both instead to not authenticate
username, password = get_credentials()

# Load our agent for BMO
bmo = BMOAgent(username, password)

# Set whatever REST API options we want
options = {
    'changed_after':    '2010-12-24',
    'changed_before':   '2010-12-26',
    'changed_field':    'status',
    'changed_field_to': 'RESOLVED',
    'product':          'Core,Firefox',
    'resolution':       'FIXED',
    'include_fields':   '_default,attachments',

# Get the bugs from the api
buglist = bmo.get_bug_list(options)

print "Found %s bugs" % (len(buglist))

for bug in buglist:
    print bug

Email Nag Script

Do a dryrun::
python scripts/ -d -q queries/tracking_firefox_12 -q queries/tracking_firefox_13
You can pass in several config files (examples in queries/) that should have the following information::
query_name priority query_{url,params} (choose one format - see queries/ for examples of each)

The script does the following: * Gathers the current list of employees and managers from Mozilla LDAP phonebook ** you will need a local config for phonebook auth with your LDAP info:

# in scripts/configs/config.json                                   ▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸▸
    "username": "",
    "password": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
  • Polls the bugzilla API with each query supplied and builds a dictionary of bugs found per query
  • For each bug, finds the assignee and if possible the assignee's manager - then adds the bug to the manager's bug bucket for later email notification
  • Goes through the manager dictionary and contructs an email with the bugs assigned to that manager's team members
  • Outputs the message to console and waits for use input to either send/edit/cancel (save for manual notification)
  • At the end it provides a list of all bugs that were not emailed about and provides the url for bugzilla of that buglist
