While the choice of systems impacts the productivity of a team, cross-functional collaboration enhances seamless communication between teams to make better decisions, faster.

By integrating Bugzilla and Agility (Formerly VersionOne), enterprises can diminish collaboration barriers that otherwise lead to quality issues, delivery delays, and financial loss.

How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Bugzilla and Agility

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Bugzilla and Agility (Formerly VersionOne) bi-directionally. It ensures that all historical and current data is available to each user, in that user’s preferred system, with full context, in real-time. All ‘bugs’ from Bugzilla automatically synchronize to Agility. The status, priorities of bugs defined by the project management or the development team in Agility also synchronizes to Bugzilla.

Use Case: Bugzilla integration with Agility

Problem statement: The project management and development team are using Agility as a project management system and Bugzilla as a defect tracking system. If these two systems are not synchronized, the Project Manager doesn’t have clear visibility into the kind of bugs being reported and must manually coordinate about status, priority, delivery timelines of these bugs with the development team.

Solution:When Bugzilla and Agility (Formerly VersionOne) are integrated, the Project Manager will have real-time visibility into the bugs being reported, which in turn will improve the overall planning and estimation process.

  1. The Quality Assurance (QA) team logs a ‘bug’ in Bugzilla after test case fails.
  2. As Agility and Bugzilla are integrated, the project management team also gets real-time access to bugs reported from their own system.
  3. The Project Manager realizes that the bug, if not resolved in a day, will become a critical road blocker for the impending release.
  4. The Project Manager, therefore, marks the bug as ‘high priority’ in Agility. This update synchronizes to Bugzilla as well. The development team as well as QA team update their schedule as per this update.
