Reclassify your issues through a simple drag-and-drop interface
The Bugs Dashboard lists all bugs on file (that are not excluded by your configuration, such as CLOSED bugs) by their severity. You can clearly see the state of all products and the short description is included to help you focus on threats. A hyperlink allows you to drill down (open Bugzilla) on individual bugs. Dropdown lists allow you to further refine your investigations to only one product and/or only one assignee.
Many Columns Help You Identify Why A Bug Should Be Reclassified
There are several facts about each bug displayed for your decision making. If you drag a bug to a new severity, the severity as shown in this screenshot will not change until after you save your updates. Therefore, you can always review your changes before updating by comparing the severity of the bug to the severity label of the container.
Reclassifying A Severity
To move a bug from one severity to another, hover over the bug. The cursor will change to the four directions. Mouse down on the bug and drag it from the existing container to the new container. The existing container will shrink after the bug has been dragged out and the new container will expand to accept the bug as you move over it. You may drop the bug into any container you wish. Upon updating, the severity in the Bugzilla database will be changed to reflect your update.
Each Bugzilla Severity Appears As A Container Ready To Accept Reclassified Bugs
When listing the bugs within a severity, the Bugs Dashboard uses a container to group the bugs. This is significant for those times you wish to drag a bug to a new severity classification. You grab the bug in question by mousing down on it and then drag it to the container (severity) you wish to move it to and release the mouse (drop the bug into the container). Each container is labeled by its severity and the issues designated within a severity have a surrounding space that represents the container. Note that this is the internal space, not the background to the label. Containers will expand and contract as you drag bugs to and from them.
