Adding the Bugzilla ID Search Gadget

The Bugzilla Issue ID Search gadget allows you to search all JIRA issues for references to Bugzilla issue IDs. If the specified ID is not found within JIRA, the gadget redirects to the Bugzilla issue (if a Bugzilla server URL has been specified). This allows JIRA to become the one interface for all JIRA and Bugzilla issues.

Please note that this gadget does not work if the Bugzilla issues were imported using the JIRA Importers Plugin (which replaced the built-in JIRA importer at the release of JIRA 4.4). Instead, please use JIRA's Simple/Advanced Search to find your Bugzilla issue IDs.

What does it look like?

The Bugzilla Issue ID Search gadget should appear as follows on the dashboard:

Adding the 'Bugzilla Issue ID Search' gadget to Dashboard

  3. The 'Bugzilla Issue ID Search' gadget will appear on your dashboard as follows, ready for you to configure:
  4. Optionally enter the URL of the Bugzilla server you wish to search.
  5. Click the 'Save' button.

    We have a new install of JIRA 6.0 and after adding the BZ search gadget to my dashboard it indicates that "This gadget is incompatible with the new JIRA Importers plugin and will be depreciated. Please use JIRA''s quick search in the top right".
