I'm not able to edit products that have empty description fields in IssueZilla.
The products are not shown in
and there doesn't seem to be any other way to access them via the IssueZilla
admin interface. It is possible to file bugs against those modules though as
they are displayed in
Examples of the modules with empty descriptions include:
The problem is that someone forgot to enter description of product and SQL
select in editproducts.cgi lines 207-212 (as in Bugzilla 2.10) cannot work with
There are two possible solutions easier and (of course) more complicated:
The easier way is to manualy update affected NULL fields using SQL "update"
command (I recommend it).
The more complicated way is to rewrite SQL select in editproducts.cgi lines
207-212 to handle also records with NULL fields.
Another case is to fix database structure shown in checksetup.pl lines 665-666.
Done. Every product is in there with "default text". Please change when you
get a chance.
in tigris products table:
insert into products values("vcscore","default text","",0,0);
in issues product table:
insert into products values("vcscore","default text","",0,0,10000,0,"");
for future reference.
This is what lead me to the answer
line 225 in editcomponents.cgi.
Rudolf was entirely right except the entries just didn't exist rather than
existed with some NULL values in them.
Keri, since most of these projects were created via SourceCast admin interface,
isn't it a SourceCast bug that the bug database's metadata was not fully updated
after creating each project?
This is actually the Tigris infrastructure and at that point, Bug/Issuezilla
wasn't as integrated as it is in Sourcecast -- so it has to be manual.
