You can register a Bugzilla server endpoint to generate and update Bugzilla tasks or bugs from a release pipeline.

About this task

You can create a Bugzilla task or bug using a pipeline task. You update the assignee, change the status of the issue, and add comments to the issue.

  2. Click Add.
  3. Select Bugzilla from the Endpoint Type drop-down menu.
  4. Enter a Bugzilla server endpoint name and an applicable description.

    For example, in the description section you can add the release pipeline name that uses this Bugzilla server endpoint.

    User Credentials
