Bugzilla: Save a preset query

Questions should be directed to Web Development, it-webdev@udel.edu

Preset queries are a helpful tool for managing your bugs. You are basically saving a set of search parameters, so with one click you can view a list of the bugs you need. You create a preset query using the Search for Bugs page, and links to your preset queries are present in the yellow box at the bottom of each Bugzilla page.

Everyone starts with one preset query called My Bugs. If you click on My Bugs, and then click the link for Edit this Query, you can see how the query was created. The My Bugs query presents all bugs with a status of new, assigned, or reopened, where your email is listed as the bug owner or reporter.

  1. From the Welcome to Bugzilla page, click on the first link for Query existing bug reports. View Welcome to Bugzilla image
