Description Mark A. Hershberger 2011-04-15 22:48:00 UTC
I don't think Bugzilla has the ability to whine that it needs.  See
Comment 1 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-04-15 22:48:53 UTC
That it needs what?
Comment 2 Platonides 2011-04-15 22:49:42 UTC
What are whines?

"you aren't a member of the 'bz_canusewhines' group, and so you are not authorized to schedule whine reports"
Comment 3 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-04-15 22:58:19 UTC
"Whining" is when Bugzilla executes a saved query at a regular interval and sends the resulting list of bugs via email.
To set up a new whine event, click "Add a new event." Enter a subject line for the message that will be sent, along with a block of text that will accompany the bug list in the body of the message.
Schedules are added to an event by clicking on "Add a new schedule." A schedule consists of a day, a time of day or interval of times (e.g., every 15 minutes), and a target email address that may or may not be alterable, depending on your privileges. Events may have more than one schedule in order to run at multiple times or for different users.
Searches come from saved searches, which are created by executing a search, then telling Bugzilla to remember the search under a particular name. Add a query by clicking "Add a new query", and select the desired saved search name under "Search" and add a title for the bug table. The optional number entered under "Sort" will determine the execution order (lowest to highest) if multiple queries are listed. If you check "One message per bug," each bug that matches the search will be sent in its own email message.
All times are server local time (UTC).

I don't know, but I don't seem to be getting my whines.  Are they working for you?  Maybe I'm just doing something wrong.
Comment 5 Priyanka Dhanda 2011-05-25 19:01:51 UTC
RobH just set up the cron job I requested and I started receiving whine emails.
Comment 6 Chad H. 2011-05-25 19:42:20 UTC
Is there a way to opt out of getting whines?
Comment 7 Mark A. Hershberger 2011-05-25 20:57:19 UTC
I'm sure there is.  You actually have to set up a "whine" to get one, though.
