Yes, but it is not trivial to implement.

I did the first step and opened the following pull request:

The patch enables users to filter problems by Bugzilla ID in gnome-abrt.
So you can ask the report to write Bugzilla ID to the search field in
gnome-abrt and it should show him the original ABRT problem. 'coredump'
is stored in $DATA_DIRECTORY and the path to $DATA_DIRECTORY can be
found under "Details" (bottom-right corner).
