Description

16 years ago
Today, Bugzilla handles bugs very satisfactory.  A bug has a state: new,
assigned, resolved, verified. What we would like is to be able to define states
independently (any number and names), and some simple rules on how state changes
are allowed (who can do it, a-->b, b-->c, but not a-->c).

Still better:  More advanced rules such that two parties must approve before a
state change.

I should think that Bugzilla is capable of such enhancements, but states and
such are so tangled into the perl code that I cannot do it myself.

Any chance of such enhancements?

I guess all this can be called "workflow" definition?

This bug needs to be split into two bugs:

1. Stop referring to bugs and generalize them into 'tasks' or 'issues' or whatever.
2. Generalize the resolution scheme

Item 2 is the main scope of comment #0, so I'm renaming this bug accordingly. Reporter/s, please open a separate bug about issue 1 or consult the related bug 75172.
Summary: Generalizing Bugzilla into a "task tracking system" → Generalize resolution scheme into state schemes with transition rules

This has nothing to do with this bug. Comment 0 is about custom bug statuses and workflow.


> 2. Generalize the resolution scheme

This bug is about bug statuses, not resolutions.

Bugzilla supports both points for ages now -> WFM.
