This test case tests the functionality of the ABRT feature using the Bugzilla plugin.

How to test

  1. if you don't have an account on the bugzilla (, create one
  2. Edit /etc/abrt/abrt.conf to enable and activate the Bugzilla plugin. A sample config is noted below
# common abrt settings
[ Common ]
# enabled plugins
# there has to be exactly one database plugin
EnabledPlugins = Mailx, SQLite3, CCpp, Logger, Kerneloops, KerneloopsScanner, KerneloopsReporter, Bugzilla, Python
# reporters association with analyzers
[ AnalyzerActionsAndReporters ]
CCpp = Mailx, Bugzilla, Logger
Python = Mailx, Bugzilla, Logger
  1. Edit ~/.abrt/Bugzilla.conf and make sure the configuration is valid. Insert your username and password
BugzillaURL =
NoSSLVerify = yes
#enter your login here
Login =
#enter your password here
Password =

Restart ABRT:

# service abrt restart

And final steps are:

  1. Ensure that the abrt and abrt-applet processes are both running
  2. Kill a running process: kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
  3. Click on the panel applet to start abrt-gui
  4. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, select Generate
  5. At the report window, click Apply

Expected Results

  1. a bug entry should be filled in the Bugzilla, the entry should be assigned to the package you crashed
