Summary0004821: Bugzilla integration via XMLRPC
DescriptionBugzilla integration needs a user account on bugzilla database, and this user "must be able to access that server remotely" (cf. [^]).

That's an issue in organizations where TestLink and Bugzilla are physically separated and where Bugzilla database is not accessible remotely, for security issues.

A solution would be to access Bugzilla datas through its Web Services API : [^]
All the needed informations seem to be accessible through the Bug.get Web Service: [^]

Thanks fman, that works fine!
I successfully tested integration with Bugzilla 4.0:
- "Access to Bug Tracking System (Bugzillaxmlrpc)"
- "Add bug" with a "Bugzillaxmlrpc Bug id"

However, I'm not sure that BUG_TRACK_USERNAME and BUG_TRACK_PASSWORD are useful:
integration is read-only today, and even if write permissions were needed, it would be risky to enter bugs with the same bugzilla account for all testers.
So I think it's better that tester has to login first in Bugzilla with his own username.
Possibly these two parameters could be optional (they are mandatory at the moment).
