This allows you to create a new bug in Bugzilla. If you specify any invalid fields, they will be ignored. If you specify any fields you are not allowed to set, they will just be set to their defaults or ignored. Some params must be set, or an error will be thrown. These params are marked Required. Some parameters can have defaults set in Bugzilla, by the administrator. If these parameters have defaults set, you can omit them. These parameters are marked Defaulted. Clients that want to be able to interact uniformly with multiple Bugzillas should always set both the params marked Required and those marked Defaulted, because some Bugzillas may not have defaults set for Defaulted parameters, and then this method will throw an error if you don't specify them. The descriptions of the parameters below are what they mean when Bugzilla is being used to track software bugs. They may have other meanings in some installations.

        product (string) Required - The name of the product the bug is being filed against. 
        component (string) Required - The name of a component in the product above.

        version (string) Required - A version of the product above; the version the bug was found in. 
        description (string) Defaulted - The initial description for this bug. Some Bugzilla installations require this to not be blank. 
        op_sys (string) Defaulted - The operating system the bug was discovered on.
