Bugzilla Tips

Quicksearch Video

Filed under: Uncategorized — gervmarkham @ 8:31 am

Mike Beltzner has made an excellent video on how to use Bugzilla Quicksearch. If you use Bugzilla for more than about ten minutes every day, then this is definitely worth 5 minutes 33 seconds of your time.

Sadly, free WordPress doesn’t seem to allow the <video> tag, so you’ll have to go to all the effort of clicking this link (Theora video).

My favourite part is right at the beginning, where Beltzner says breezily “OK! So, now I’m going to change your life!”, and in the background you can just hear Madhava’s entirely unimpressed “I see.”

[Historical correction: as Jesse has pointed out, although he was a great supporter and inspirer, Andreas Franke made Quicksearch, not him.]

  1. Wow, how cool! :-)

    Also, in Bugzilla 3.6 and above, QuickSearch has a few additional nifty features, and also some greatly improved documentation (accessible via “Quicksearch Help” on the front page or the [?] link next to the Quicksearch box).
