I suspect that you'll find the answer in Bugzilla documentation

So I'd go over to their website and have a read. I'm sure it's documented, if not then ask on their mailing list/forums/etc (as suggested above).

When you get it worked out, it'd be great if you could post back to save others the effort in future.
