Wondering what’s next for npm?Check out our public roadmap! »


    1.0.1 • Public • Published


    This 1.0x branch is for the built in bugzilla rest interface

    The built in rest api is not backwards compatible with the original bugzilla rest extension bzapi.


    For node install with npm:

    npm install bz

    and use with var bz = require("bz")

    For the browser, download the lastest bz.js. Or build a browser file from the source code with browserbuild: browserbuild bz.js.


    var bugzilla = bz.createClient();
    bugzilla.getBug(678223, function(error, bug) {
      if (!error) {


    bz.createClient(options) creates a new Bugzilla API client, optionally takes options like the REST API url, username + password, and timeout in milliseconds:

    var bugzilla = bz.createClient({
      url: "https://api-dev.bugzilla.mozilla.org/test/0.9/",
      username: 'bugs@bugmail.com',
      password: 'secret',
      timeout: 30000

    Client methods

    Each method takes a callback that takes an error message (if any kind of error occurs) as its first argument, and the expected return data as its second.

    getBug(id, callback)
    retrieves a bug given a bug id.

    searchBugs(searchParams, callback)
    searches with given search parameters and fetches an array of bugs.

    createBug(bug, callback)
    creates a bug and returns the id of the newly created bug.

    updateBug(id, bug, callback)
    updates a bug with new bug info.

    bugComments(id, callback)
    retrieves the comments for a bug.

    addComment(id, comment, callback)
    adds a comment to a bug.

    bugHistory(id, callback)
    retrieves array of changes for a bug.

    bugAttachments(id, callback)

    createAttachment(bugId, attachment, callback)
    creates an attachment on a bug, and returns the id of the newly created attachment.

    getAttachment(attachId, callback)
    gets an attachment given an attachment id.

    updateAttachment(attachId, attachment, callback)

    searchUsers(match, callback)
