Greetings,

Is it possible to add a new version to all the products in my
bugzilla, without having to go to each product individually?

So an installation wide version addition?

Thanks,
Bill

No, this is not possible.

Of course. It's all just ones and zeroes. You can make them do anything
you like. There was an implicity rider on my answer (and, I think, on
the question) - "using the GUI".

Howdy Bad Dog,

There is the option of re-purposing other fields/using custom fields.
For my needs (too many versions that over-lap almost all products) the
default bugzilla version tool doesn't work well. Also, with a ton of
versions the pull-down menu widget looks awful, so we did away with it
and renamed the "keyword" field "version". A little template massage
later and we had a decent solution.

FWIW,
e.

Hi,
I also encountered this problem and decided to write a Perl script
using the Bugzilla Perl API to solve it.
See my blog post on the subject:

Enjoy!
Yuval.

Este es un proyecto en java que se conecta directamente a la base de datos que maneja Bugzilla, simplemente se debe cambiar los valores de la clase conexión y ejecuta el proyecto
https://github.com/daas93/toolToBugzilla
Agrega versiones, milestones, categorias y ambientes/entornos (estos dos últimos para los que utilizan Testopia), todo con solo decir que versión o mailestone..ect, se quiere agregar.
