|Title||Jobspec not suitable for creating new jobs|
|Assigned user||Gareth Rees|
|Description||The P4DTI creates a Perforce jobspec that's fine for jobs which are replicated from the defect tracker, but not so good for jobs that are created in Perforce.|
|Analysis|| offers the following suggestions for the Bugzilla integration:|
P4DTI: Reporter word 255 optional , no default
Suggested: Reporter word 255 required, default $user
P4DTI: Creation_Timestamp date 20 optional
Suggested: Creation_Timestamp date 20 once
P4DTI: Update_Timestamp date 20 optional
Suggested: Update_Timestamp date 20 always
The reporter suggestion looks good, but it needs to be "default", not "required" otherwise we get into trouble when replicating a Bugzilla bug with no reporter.
We can't have any "once" fields, because they break the refresh script
 asks that in the TeamTrack integration we handle Submit_Date, Last_Modified_Date, and Submitter.
[NB 2002-04-05] This is actually a complex set of interrelated problems.
Firstly we have the problem that the Bugzilla integration will fail to migrate jobs and/or to replicate new Perforce jobs if certain fields are in the replicated_fields. For Bugzilla this is job000493 (delta_ts) job000494 (qa_contact), and job000497 (lastdiffed).
Secondly we have the problem that neither the Bugzilla nor the TeamTrack integrations will replicate new Perforce jobs with the defaults values of certain fields. For Bugzilla this is job000491 (reporter, qa_contact). For TeamTrack, this is job000501 (LASTMODIFIEDDATE, SUBMITDATE).
Thirdly, we have the problem that the automated test suite doesn't handle the replication of some fields very well. This is job000492 (reporter), and job000495 (qa_contact).
Fourthly, we have the problem that migration breaks for Bugzilla if some "numeric" fields are replicated. This is job000496.
Lastly, we have the problem that some "numeric" fields from Bugzilla don't translate to Perforce very well. This is job000498.
