Description Chandrasekar Kannan 2007-03-07 02:22:24 UTC
Often, I need to edit the flags field for more than one at a time. 

These fields are not exposed in the "Change several bugs at once UI".
If this is done, then I would be able to edit flags fields for several 
bugs at once.

Comment 3 Simon Green 2012-06-15 07:35:47 UTC
This would be a really good thing to have. I'm thinking that the interface would list all flags (if any) that ALL bugs can have (there is code already that handles this at a product level and sure about the component level[1]), and obviously the user has the ability to either request or set. Each flag then would have --do_not_change--, X, ?, + and - (depending on the settings of the flag and the users privileges).

[1] flags can be set at the component level, although I'm not aware of any flags in our installation that does this.
