The Add Defect to Bugzilla Database

In the dialog, connect to the Mozilla Bugzilla database:

  • In the User Login and Password boxes, enter the login and password of the account under which you want to connect to the database.

  • To save the login and password and skip the login step in the future, select Login automatically next time.

  • Click OK to connect to the database. If the specified URL or user account is not available, an error occurs.

    Note: After you connect to the Bugzilla database, the Server address and the User login information are saved.
