Bugzilla REST API wrapper


A JavaScript wrapper for the Bugzilla REST API.


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. Or build a browser file from the source code with grunt build.


var bugzilla = bz.createClient();
bugzilla.getBug(678223, function(errorbug) {
  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
