Description Yehuda Zimmerman 2016-08-02 13:20:14 UTC
Description of problem:

When changing an assignee, contact, or QA person, the change is not reflected in the Needed Info field, although the email sent goes to the new assignee, contact, or QA person.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Should be easy

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change Assigned To to 
2. Check the Need additional information from checkbox.
3. Select assignee from the dropdown list. The name of the original assignee appears in the field - not
4. Click Save Changes. 

Actual results:
The assignee email is sent to

Expected results:
One of the following:
* The email is sent to the original assignee
* The Need additional info from field should show the new assignee

Additional info:
I am pretty sure that this is the same for changed QA contact or Docs contact

Comment 1 Matt Tyson 🤬 2016-09-19 03:54:22 UTC
The javascript actually hardcoded at page load time the values for assigned to, qa contact etc.

We should make this fetch the value from the text box and use that.

Comment 2 Matt Tyson 🤬 2016-09-19 06:07:08 UTC
Now we will fetch the email address from the assigned to (or qe, etc) fields and the users full name via RPC build the text field from that.

Committed to Bugzilla 5.0 branch.
