Replicate Multiple Bugzilla Accounts

Replicate multiple Bugzilla accounts to one or many databases.

CData Sync for Bugzilla is a stand-alone application that provides solutions for a variety of replication scenarios such as replicating sandbox and production instances into your database. Both Sync for Windows and Sync for Java include a command-line interface (CLI) that makes it easy to manage multiple Bugzilla connections. In this article we show how to use the CLI to replicate multiple Bugzilla accounts.

Configure Bugzilla Connections

You can save connection and email notification settings in an XML configuration file. To replicate multiple Bugzilla accounts, use multiple configuration files. Below is an example configuration to replicate Bugzilla to SQLite:

Windows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>System.Data.SQLite</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>Url=http://yourdomain/Bugzilla;APIKey=abc123;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> <TaskSchedulerStartTime>09:51</TaskSchedulerStartTime> <TaskSchedulerInterval>Never</TaskSchedulerInterval> </CDataSync>

Java

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>org.sqlite.JDBC</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>Url=http://yourdomain/Bugzilla;APIKey=abc123;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> </CDataSync>

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.

Configure Queries for Each Bugzilla Instance

Sync enables you to control replication with standard SQL. The REPLICATE statement is a high-level command that caches and maintains a table in your database. You can define any SELECT query supported by the Bugzilla API. The statement below caches and incrementally updates a table of Bugzilla data:

REPLICATE Bugs;

You can specify a file containing the replication queries you want to use to update a particular database. Separate replication statements with semicolons. The following options are useful if you are replicating multiple Bugzilla accounts into the same database:

You can use a different table prefix in the REPLICATE SELECT statement:

REPLICATE PROD_Bugs SELECT * FROM Bugs

Alternatively, you can use a different schema:

REPLICATE PROD.Bugs SELECT * FROM Bugs

Run Sync

After you have configured the connection strings and replication queries, you can run Sync with the following command-line options:

Windows

BugzillaSync.exe -g MyProductionBugzillaConfig.xml -f MyProductionBugzillaSync.sql

Java

java -Xbootclasspath/p:c:\sqlitejdbc.jar -jar BugzillaSync.jar -g MyProductionBugzillaConfig.xml -f MyProductionBugzillaSync.sql
