bugzilla2trac.py: Components / Versions from too many bugzilla products get imported

Reported by: remke.rutgers@… Owned by: Remy Blank

Severity: normal Keywords: bugzilla2trac

Internal Changes:


Selecting multiple PRODUCTS and COMPONENTS_FROM_PRODUCTS = False converts too many components from Bugzilla to Trac.

Software versions I use:

  • Python: 2.3.4
  • Bugzilla: 3.0.2
  • Mysql: 4.0.18
  • Trac: 0.10.4
  • bugzilla2trac.py: revision 8272
  • MySQL-python: 1.2.1_p2

My setup (partial):

PRODUCTS = ["Product1","Product2","Product3"]

This results in the conversion of too many components: also components NOT belonging to Product1, Product2 or Product3 get imported.

By printing the select clause for components (line 570) I found out the issue is with the generated where clause for components: line 574:

sql += makeWhereClause('p.name', PRODUCTS)

This results in a where clause in the following form

p.name = 'Product1' or p.name = 'Product2' or p.name = 'Product3'

However, there are not parentheses around this where clause, which results in too many components getting selected.

I think any where clause generated by makeWhereClause(…) should result in a where clause surrounded by parentheses.

I fixed the problem by modifying line 498 in the makeWhereClause function: from

return ' ' + clause


 return ' (' + clause + ') '

Can someone please review this change and (if accepted) apply it to bugzilla2trac.py?

Summary: bugzilla2trac.py: Components from too many bugzilla products get importedbugzilla2trac.py: Components / Versions from too many bugzilla products get imported

I found the same problem and answer today, now I find that the same also applies to the imported version labels. I had to change the existing SQL:

        sql = """SELECT DISTINCTROW versions.value AS value
                               FROM products, versions"""
        sql += " WHERE" + makeWhereClause('products.name', PRODUCTS)


        sql = """SELECT DISTINCTROW v.value AS value
                 FROM products p, versions v
                 WHERE v.product_id = p.id AND ("""
        sql += makeWhereClause('p.name', PRODUCTS) + ")"

Note: I am wrapping the makeWhereClause in brackets in the sql instead of inside the function as op suggested (I cannot see a problem with either approach?) but this does not solve the version label problem by itself.

The patch above should fix both issues. Unfortunately, I have no way of testing it. I will apply it for 0.12 if I get some positive reports that it works and fixes the two issues discussed here.

I applied the patch and re-ran the import: I can confirm the components issue is fixed. I cannot say anything about the versions, because we are not using versions.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll wait a few more days and see if I can get a reply from hieroglyph as well.
