Attack of the Poodle

A new security attack (dubbed the POODLE attack) makes continued use of SSLv3 dangerous. So effective immediately, we are dropping support for SSLv3. Browser users will likely see minimal-to-no impact. If you are having an issue please try a newer version of your browser.

Extremely old browsers (specifically IE 6 users on Windows XP) will no longer be able to connect to devZing pages. We performed a traffic analysis that shows this would have affected no customers in the last 90 days.

Github Integration

This integration will allow you to use GetHub commit comments to update bugs

This will cause any commit comments to be added to bugs references by the comment. E.g. the commit comment “This fixes bug 123” will cause “This fixes bug 123” to be added as a comment to bug 123.

You must configure both Github and devZing to make this work.

Github configuration

To configure GitHub click Settings when viewing your repository


Click Webhooks & Services



Click Add Webhook





Fill in the Payload URL:

  • If using the US datacenter use<account>/bugzilla/extensions/GithubWebhook/
  • If using the UK datacenter<account>/extensions/GithubWebhook/

Content type can be either application/json or application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Feel free to add a secret as we will be supporting this soon.

Make sure you have selected “Just the push event” as other event types will be ignored.

Then click Add Webhook to save your webhook.

devZing configuration

Next log into your devZing account and click “Manage Global Settings”

In the “Github Integration” section select a Bugzilla user that will be used for the integration.

Click Save.


In daily use just include the keyword “bug” next to the Bugzilla defect ID you want to update in the commit message. Remember that the Github webhooks aren’t executed until you push your changes and that there can be several commits in a single push. Every commit message in a push will be evaluated so you can update 1 or 100 bugs in a single push.
