bug_tree - Print a bugzilla tree out to stdout


version 0.08


 % bug_tree --bug bug_id [ --url url ] [ --ssl-no-verify-hostname ]
 % bug_tree --help | -h
 % bug_tree --version


This script prints out a tree (with colors if available) of dependent bugs from your Bugzilla server.

This script will prompt you for a username or password if the server requires HTTP Basic authentication ( If you set the environment variable BUG_TREE_USER to your bugzilla username then it will just prompt you for a password). It will not attempt to login if your server does not require you to login to view bugs.


--bug bug_id | -b bug_id

The Bugzilla bug id of the root bug to display.

--url url | -u url

The URL of the Bugzilla website. Uses the BUG_TREE_URL environment variable if this option not provided, and falls back on this bugzilla server provided for testing:


Do not verify the hostname for SSL connections. This allows for servers that use self signed certificates. If you get a "500 Can't connect" error trying to connect to a https server that you know to work, then this option may do the trick.

--help | -h
