The Jenkins project announced an unresolved security vulnerability affecting the current version of this plugin (why?):

This plugin integrates Bugzilla into Jenkins. It hyperlinks bug numbers that appear in changeset descriptions to the bugzilla bug detail page. It can also, optionally, add a tooltip to each linked bug, showing the bug 'summary' text.

This plugin needs a new maintainer

Jenkins needs to know the URL to your bugzilla server. In addition, you can specify a username and password to the bugzilla server. If login is required to see bug detail, then the username and password are necessary for the tooltip feature. Note that the password is stored in plaintext within Jenkin's configuration files. Here is an example configuration page, with the bugzilla project's own bugzilla server:

Once the plugin is configured, all numbers are hyperlinked and get tooltips. Since there is no convention to distinguish bugzilla bug numbers, all integers get hyperlinked. Here is a nonsensical example of a changeset on Jenkin's SVN server, linked with the mandriva Bugzilla database, with the mouse cursor over bug 1659. Note that the revisions are hyperlinked in addition to Issue 1659:
