Make sure gerrit notification bot will handle redirected bugs properly
Closed, ResolvedPublic


After the BZ migration, bugzilla urls will redirect to maniphest tasks. However, most open patches will still link to Bugzilla with "Bug: ###" footer. Ideally the gerrit notification bot would automatically follow those redirects and comment on the proper maniphest task so I don't have to update all my open patches.

@QChris, it's too late right now, but I'll try to find you tomorrow on IRC to discuss a possible solution.

@Qgil, it seems we did not manage to meet in IRC today :-)

Not sure if this task is worth it.

But if we want that really need it and we have a fixed mapping between bugzilla bug number and phabricator task number, I can hook something up.

Do we really need it?

I'm not sure we need the Gerrit notification bot to get involved. I assume we'll set up redirects from and/or provide a way to find the phabricator ticket from the bugzilla page. That should be enough. The bot could use http to follow the redirect and/or bugzilla api to read the comment or a meta data field (wherever the url is left if we don't use a redirect).

What the bot needs to do is to convert Bug N in T(N + 2000).

We commented this solution with @QChris right before the migration, letting him now the theory, and the fact that (back then) we could not guarantee that such numbering fix would work.

Thanks @Legoktm for reporting this detail and thank you @QChris for the quick and elegant fix. You just "fixed" some 1000s of links in one go.
