This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT feature using the Bugzilla plugin.
How to test
- If you don't have an account on the bugzilla, create one.
/etc/abrt/abrt.confand list the Bugzilla plugin in EnabledPlugins, CCpp and Python lines (which will enable and activate it). For example:
... EnabledPlugins = Bugzilla, Mailx, SQLite3, CCpp, Logger, Kerneloops, KerneloopsScanner, KerneloopsReporter, Python ... CCpp = Mailx, Bugzilla, Logger Python = Mailx, Bugzilla, Logger ...
- Edit ~/.abrt/Bugzilla.conf and make sure the configuration is valid. Insert your bugzilla username and password
BugzillaURL = https://bugzilla.redhat.com/xmlrpc.cgi NoSSLVerify = yes #enter your login here Login = #enter your password here Password =
- Optionally, you may set up the username and password using abrt-gui. Launch abrt-gui and select Edit -> Preferences -> Enable Bugzilla -> Configure plugin. Once complete, confirm that ~/.abrt/Bugzilla.conf lists the information supplied.
- Restart ABRT:
$ service abrt restart
- Ensure that the abrt and abrt-applet processes are both running
- Kill a running process: kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
- Click on the panel applet to start abrt-gui
- Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, click Report
- At the report window, click Send
- A popup message should say: "Bugzilla: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=NNNNNN"
- A bug entry should be filled in the Bugzilla, the entry should be assigned to the package you crashed.
- Now it might be a good idea to close the entry in Bugzilla since this "crash" was intended failured and produced by us, so, package maintained won't get upset by a bunch of bogus crashes.
