This tool is used by Mozilla release management to send emails to the Firefox developers. It will query the bugzilla.mozilla.org database and send emails to Mozilla developers and their managers (if Mozilla staff).

This package currently uses [remoteobject](http://sixapart.github.com/remoteobjects/) models, Mozilla's [Bugzilla REST API](https://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:REST_API), and optionally the Mozilla LDAP [phonebook](https://github.com/mozilla/mobile-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://github.com/mozilla/relman-auto-nag.git
  2. (optional) Create your virtualenv using virtualenvwrapper:

    virtualenv --no-site-packages venv
  3. Install pip:

    easy_install pip
  4. Install the dependencies for bztools:

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

    python setup.py 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 venv or source venv/bin/activate.

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 auto_nag.bugzilla.agents import BMOAgent

# We can use "None" for both instead to not authenticate
api_key = 'xxx'

# Load our agent for BMO
bmo = BMOAgent(api_key)

# 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

Query Creator, Automated Nagging Script

Before running:

  1. You'll need to create a writeable 'queries' directory at the top level of the checkout where the script is run from.
  2. Need a local config for phonebook auth with your LDAP info
  3. Need to generate an API key from bugzilla admin ( https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/userprefs.cgi?tab=apikey )

<pre> # in scripts/configs/config.json {

"ldap_username": "you@mozilla.com", "ldap_password": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxx", "bz_api_key": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
Do a dryrun::
python auto_nag/scripts/query_creator.py -d

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
    "ldap_username": "you@mozilla.com",
    "ldap_password": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "bz_api_key": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
  • Creates queries based on the day of the week the script is run
  • 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 constructs 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

Running on a server

This needs to run on a private server because it will have login for LDAP and bugzilla key so it can't currently be shared access.
