Using Mylar

Hiding uninteresting elements

One of the most useful things that Mylar can do for you is hide things that you aren't interested in. (@@@ fill in here @@@)

Bugzilla Connector

Once Mylar is installed there are a few steps involved to get up and running.

  • To access tasks (reports/issues) on a repository such as Bugzilla you must first set up a Task Repository
    • Navigate to Window > Show View > Other > Mylar > Task Repositories to open the Task Repositories view.
    • Launch the add repository wizard by pressing the add repository button located in the view's toolbar Mylar-add-repository.png.
    • The first page of this wizard asks for the type of repository you wish to connect to (if you have installed multiple connectors). Select Bugzilla for example and press the Next button.
    • On the second page you can enter the repository's address and your login credentials. After filling in these details, press the validate button to ensure the repository exists and your login credentials are valid. Once the settings validate you can finish the wizard. The repository you added will be shown in the Task Repositories view.

Repository Configuration

  • Once the repository has been created, you may add queries to the Task List.
    • In the Task List view right click anywhere in the list pane and select 'New Query' from the context menu.
    • Choose the repository you added in the previous steps.
    • Enter query title and search criteria and then press Finish.
    • A query with the title you gave will appear in the Task List and will synchronize with the remote repository. If the query has hits they will appear within the query folder you've created.
    • Double click to open a hit. Double click on the query to edit the query parameters.
    • Click on the lightly shaded button (left of task icon) in the Task List to activat the task. Click again to deactivate.
