       pybugz.d - configuration files for pybugz






       When  started,  bugz  reads configuration files from all of the locations listed above, in
       the order listed. In the directories, it reads the files in lexical order.

       Files located in /usr/share/pybugz.d/*.conf are provided  by  pybugz  and  should  not  be

       Files  located  in  /etc/pybugz.d/*.conf,  if  it  exists,  are  provided  by  the  system

       The final file that is read, if it exists, is ~/.bugzrc by  default.  This  is  the  user-
       specific configuration file. This file name can be overridden on the command line by using
       the --config-file option.


       A configuration file consists of sections which define parameters for  the  Bugzillas  you
       intend  to  use. Each section starts with a case-sensitive section name in square brackets
       and is followed by the settings, in the form "key = value" or "key : value", which  define
       the parameters for this bugzilla instance.

       The section name is  also the name that should be used with the --connection option of the
       bugz command or the "connection" setting in the default section of the configuration file.

       The section named [default] is special. Any settings defined in this section will have the
       value  they  are  given  here  in  all  other sections unless they are overridden. So, for
       example, if you want to use the same username for most of your bugzillas, define  user  in
       the default section.

       Comments  are  also  allowed. A comment must begin with "#" or ";" and be on a line of its


       This is a list of the current settings supported by pybugz.

       connection = sectionname

       This is used in the default section to define the bugzilla you connect with  most  of  the
       time.  It is not an error to put it in another section, but it does not make much sense to
       do so.

       base =

       base =

       This is the base URL of the bugzilla. It must  point  to  the  xmlrpc.cgi  script  on  the
       bugzilla  installation.  The  second  form  is  used  if you need to encode a username and
       password into the URL for basic http authentication.

       user =

       password = secret2

       These set your username and password for this bugzilla. If you do not provide one or  both
       of  these  and  you do not use the key setting below, you will be prompted for the setting
       you do not provide.

       passwordcmd = gpg --decrypt ~/.my-encrypted-password.gpg

       As another alternative for storing your password, you can provide a password command. This
       command  will  be run, and pybugz expects it to output the password to stdout. The example
       above uses gpg to decrypt an encrypted password stored in a file. The default  setting  is
       undefined, so it will not be used unless you define it.

       key = string

       This  is  your  API  key, which is an alternative way to authenticate for Bugzilla 5.0 and
       newer.  To use this, you must generate an API key in the preferences section  of  Bugzilla
       and  set  it to that value. This overrides the username and password settings. The default
       is undefined.

       columns = 80

       This is the number of columns your terminal can display. Most of the time,  pybugz  should
       be  able  to  determine  this  value.  If it cannot, the default value is 80, so more than
       likely you will never have to change this setting.

       debug = 0

       This sets the level of debug logging. This is mostly used  for  development  purposes.  It
       causes PyBugz to print out debugging information as it runs.

       quiet = False

       If  set  to  true,  this  requests  that  pybugz run in quiet mode. This means only output
       returned from the Bugzilla will be displayed; several more verbose log messages  will  not
       be displayed.

       product = string

       This is the default setting for the product field in bugs in this Bugzilla instance. It is
       possible to define this in the default section.  However, it does not make sense to do  so
       most of the time. If this is set, you will not be prompted for a product when you run bugz
       post, and this value will also be the default for bugz search.

       component = string

       This is the default setting for the component field in bugs in this Bugzilla instance.  It
       is  possible to define this in the default section.  However, it does not make sense to do
       so most of the time. If this is set, you will not be prompted for a component when you run
       bugz post, and this will also be the default value for bugz search.

       search_statuses = confirmed, in_progress, unconfirmed

       This  sets  the  default  statuses to be used in a search command. It is a space separated
       list of Bugzilla statuses.

       insecure = true | false

       If this is set to true, pybugz will not validate the ssl certificate used during an  https
       connection  to  this  site.  Do  not use this setting unless you know exactly what you are
