Query Bugzilla Data as a MySQL Database in Node.js

Execute MySQL queries against Bugzilla data from Node.js.

You can use the CData Cloud Hub to query Bugzilla data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to create a virtual database for Bugzilla in the Cloud Hub and start querying using Node.js.

The CData Cloud Hub provides a pure MySQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for Bugzilla, allowing you to easily query live Bugzilla data in Node.js — without replicating the data to a natively supported database. As you query data in Node.js, the CData Cloud Hub pushes all supported SQL operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to Bugzilla, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return Bugzilla data.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for Bugzilla Data

CData Cloud Hub uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Cloud Hub and click Databases.
  2. Select "Bugzilla" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to Bugzilla.

    You can authenticate to your Bugzilla account using two parameters:

    • URL: The URL of your Bugzilla developer's page (the Home page).
    • ApiKey: API Keys can be generated from the Preferences -> API Keys section of your Bugzilla developer's page.
  4. Click Test Database.
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to Bugzilla data from any MySQL client.

Query Bugzilla from Node.js

The following example shows how to define a connection and execute queries to Bugzilla with the MySQL module. You will need the following information:

  • Host name, or address, and port: The address of your instance of the Cloud Hub (myinstance.cdatacloud.net) and the port (3306)
  • Username and password: The username and password of a user you authorized on the Cloud Hub
  • Database name: The database you configured for Bugzilla (bugzilladb)

Connect to Bugzilla data and start executing queries with the code below:

var mysql      = require('mysql');
var fs         = require('fs');
var connection = mysql.createConnection({
  host     : 'myinstance.cdatacloud.net',
  database : 'bugzilladb',
  port	   : '3306',
  user     : 'admin',
  password : 'password',
  ssl      : {
    ca : fs.readFileSync('C:/certs/myCA.pem')
  }
});
connection.connect();
connection.query('SELECT * FROM Bugs', function(err, rows, fields) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(rows);
});

connection.end();
