Bugzilla lets you search for bug reports that match specified conditions. This page covers common options. The Red Hat Bugzilla User Guide has more information.
The simple Bugzilla query form does a relatively simple keyword search.
Enter a word or short phrase that identifies the problem you saw as uniquely as possible in the Summary field. Examples: "view source", "auto proxy", "drag drop", "png image".
The advanced Bugzilla query form looks dauntingly complex. While it is complex and powerful, you can safely ignore most of the form. Any part of the form that is left blank does not limit the search. Each part that is filled in cuts the list of bugs down to only those that match the criteria you set.
The Status field is set by default to find NEW, ASSIGNED, NEEDINFO, and MODIFIED bugs—the unfixed bugs (or in the case of MODIFIED the recently fixed bugs).
In the product field, you should always use "Fedora", "Fedora EPEL", or "Fedora Container Images". In the component field, select the source package that contains the defect. See the finding the correct component for help.
Enter a word or short phrase that identifies the problem you saw as uniquely as possible in the Summary field. Examples: "view source", "auto proxy", "drag drop", "png image". If you enter more than one word and they are not a phrase, change the type of matching for the Summary field from contains the string to contains all of the words/strings or contains any of the words/strings, as appropriate.
Fedora generally doesn’t make use of keywords in Bugzilla, so you won’t usually need to use this. Keywords are specific tags, not arbitrary words. If you try to search for keywords that are not on the list, it won’t work.
