P4DTI issue job000533

Titlep4_user with wrong email address confuses Bugzilla user translator
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionIn the Bugzilla integration, if the P4DTI's perforce user (configuration item p4_user) does not have an email address matching the P4DTI's Bugzilla user (configuration item replicator_address) then the user translator will translate that Perforce user to the P4DTI's Bugzilla user, even if there is a separate Bugzilla user with email address matching that Perforce user. In other words, the translations in the two directions do not match each other.
A customer had exactly this problem [1].
AnalysisThe AG is clear that the p4_user email address has to match the replicator_address. We should check this when setting up the user translator, and generate an error message if it's not right. The translators in the two directions should be equivalent.
While working on the user translator, check that there are no other corner cases like this.
