Bugzilla is a web-based general-purpose bug tracking system and testing tool.
You can configure Bugzilla as an external issue tracker in GitLab.
To enable the Bugzilla integration in a project:
- On the left sidebar, select Search or go to and find your project.
- Select Settings > Integrations.
- Select Bugzilla.
- Under Enable integration, select the Active checkbox.
Fill in the required fields:
Project URL: The URL to the project in Bugzilla.
For example, for a product named “Fire Tanuki”:
Issue URL: The URL to view an issue in the Bugzilla project.
The URL must contain
:id. GitLab replaces
:idwith the issue number (for example,
https://bugzilla.example.org/show_bug.cgi?id=:id, which becomes
New issue URL: The URL to create a new issue in the linked Bugzilla project.
For example, for a project named “My Cool App”:
- Project URL: The URL to the project in Bugzilla. For example, for a product named “Fire Tanuki”:
- Optional. Select Test settings.
- Select Save changes.
After you configure and enable Bugzilla, a link appears on the GitLab project pages. This link takes you to the appropriate Bugzilla project.
You can also disable GitLab internal issue tracking in this project. For more information about the steps and consequences of disabling GitLab issues, see Configure project visibility, features, and permissions.
You can reference issues in Bugzilla using:
<ID>is a number (for example,
<PROJECT>starts with a capital letter, followed by capital letters, numbers, or underscores.
<ID>is a number.
<PROJECT> part is ignored in links, which always point to the address specified in Issue URL.
We suggest using the longer format (
<PROJECT>-<ID>) if you have both internal and external issue
trackers enabled. If you use the shorter format, and an issue with the same ID exists in the
internal issue tracker, the internal issue is linked.
