reporter-rhtsupport — Reports problem to RHTSupport.


reporter-rhtsupport [-v] [-c CONFFILE] [-F FMTFILE] [-u -C UR_CONFFILE] -d DIR


reporter-rhtsupport [-v] [-c CONFFILE] [-d DIR] -t[ID] FILE...


The tool reads problem directory DIR. Then it logs in to RHTSupport and creates a new case.

The tool can be configured to submit an uReport to RHTSupport together with creating a new case.

The URL to new case is printed to stdout and recorded in reported_to element in DIR.

If not specified, CONFFILE defaults to /etc/libreport/plugins/rhtsupport.conf.

Option -t uploads FILEs to the already created case on RHTSupport site. The case ID is retrieved from directory specified by -d DIR. If problem data in DIR was never reported to RHTSupport, upload will fail.

Option -tCASE uploads FILEs to the case CASE on RHTSupport site. -d DIR is ignored.

Option -u uploads uReport along with creating a new case. uReport configuration is loaded from UR_CONFFILE which defaults to /etc/libreport/plugins/ureport.conf.
