FogBugz Plugin - Workflow for qTest eXplorer (Updated)

This post comes from a user’s concern and we’d like to address his concern, and/or maybe yours :)


“I have installed the plugin in our FogBugz staging server for testing, but I'm not finding what the plugin actually does.  The plugin page on fogcreek.com mentions "enforce new-case workflow rules (enabled via this plugin)", but I'm not able to find any workflow under the workflow pages...”


qTest eXplorer currently does not support workflow user set on FogBugz's side due to the limitation of API. Therefore, the plugin installed will auto-query workflow’s rule for default assignee when creating a new bug (or case) in FogBugz from qTest eXplorer. So, here’s how to:


You can enable qTest eXplorer to enforce workflow rules defined by the Workflow plugin. At the time of this document being edited, the plugin is named Workflow for qTrace. There are 2 different approaches for On-Demand and On-Premise FogBugz versions.
