Re: [Geary] Can't edit Bugzilla

For anyone following along at home, this issue should now be resolved.  The sysadmins had to go in and update the database to put the imported tickets back in a good state.  If anyone has any more issues editing tickets, please let us know.

After asking around on IRC about this, it appears that we messed this up when we did the migration.  We hacked the import script to leave bugs as NEW (as opposed to the default UNCONFIRMED for imported bugs), which to Bugzilla implies they have been confirmed.  For some reason Bugzilla also tracks whether the bug has ever been set to NEW ("ever confirmed"), and when you make any unrelated change to a bug with NEW status, it will make sure that flag is set, triggering your error.  Apparently one needs the "canconfirm" permission bit set in your Bugzilla user prefs to do that, and I guess not everyone has that.

It sounds like the easiest way for us to deal with the problem would be to just mass-edit all the bugs in this wacky state, properly setting the "ever confirmed" bit so unrelated edits no longer try to flip it.

Robert, can you give us an example bug number where you're seeing the error now, and we can do a small test before going whole hog?

Hi all, I'm trying to edit some bugs on Bugzilla, but it keeps telling me,
You tried to change the Ever confirmed field from 0 to 1 , but only a user with the required permissions may change that field.
I have no idea what that means or why it's a problem. I've edited non-Geary bugs on Bugzilla in the past, so I don't think it's a problem with my account. Any ideas? Thanks, Robert _______________________________________________ geary-list mailing list geary-list gnome org
