    Build Status

    A JavaScript wrapper for the Bugzilla REST API.


    Although Travis tests are now working, test coverage is far from complete. Please report issues especially if you find problems running bz.js in the browser. Worst case scenario, please revert to 0.3 as it still basically works.


    For node install with npm:

    npm install bz

    and use with var bz = require("bz")

    For the browser, download the lastest bz-.js from the root directory.


    1. git clone
    2. cd ./bz.js
    3. npm install


    1. gulp - this will build node and browser files from the ./src directory. The node main entry now points to ./build/node/index.


    Some tests are included. If you want to run the browser tests you need to copy the file config-test.json-sample in the test/browser/files directory to a file called config-test.json in the same directory, then fill in the placeholders with your bugzilla credentials.


    var bugzilla = bz.createClient();
    bugzilla.getBug(678223, function(error, bug) {
      if (!error) {


    bz.createClient(options) creates a new Bugzilla API client, optionally takes options like the REST API url, username + password, and timeout in milliseconds:

    var bugzilla = bz.createClient({
      url: "",
      username: '',
      password: 'secret',
      timeout: 30000

    Client methods

    Each method takes a callback that takes an error message (if any kind of error occurs) as its first argument, and the expected return data as its second.

    getBug(id, callback)
    retrieves a bug given a bug id.

    searchBugs(searchParams, callback)
    searches with given search parameters and fetches an array of bugs.

    countBugs(searchParams, callback)
    searches with given search parameters and gets a integer count of bugs matching that query. this is not supported currently.

    createBug(bug, callback)
    creates a bug and returns the id of the newly created bug.
