Aha! Now Integrated With Bugzilla

by Keith Brown

We continue to roll out integrations to ensure that product and engineering teams can easily work together. Today, we are excited to announce our latest integration with Bugzilla. This integration allows you to push your completed features and requirements in Aha! into Bugzilla so that engineering teams can continue to do their work.

Complete your feature planning in Aha! and then move your features into Bugzilla individually or in bulk for a sprint or release.

This integration makes it easy for product managers to set brilliant product strategy and share visual roadmaps while engineering can continue to work in Bugzilla to build what matters.

At Aha! we make it beautifully easy to manage all your products in one place. Integrations with defect tracking systems like Bugzilla allow developers and product teams to keep track of outstanding bugs in their product effectively. It makes testing easy and helps increase the productivity of QA teams.

Key features

  • One Aha! product is associated with one product and component in Bugzilla.

  • Requirements are sent to Bugzilla together with the feature.

  • The name, description and attachments of features and requirements are sent.

  • Any other fields that are marked as mandatory in Bugzilla will be automatically populated with the last option for the field.

  • Bugs created from a requirement will block the bug created from the feature.
