If you are stuck with zilla like us and miss having an executive dashboard … How many issues were reported resolved verified etc in a specified date range … It is not possible in buzilla 3.
We started with 3 a few years back and stayed with it … It is not easy to upgrade and we would not risk it.
Since we have a fair bit of web expertise and specially with python – it was fairly simple to put together a python script which did the following.
– login to bugzilla via the web
– run a query and collect csv results
– process the results into required statistics
– send html formatted mail
Now we get a daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly email report indicating changes in key metrics.
In a subsequent post I will share some of the key code snippets.
