Tools: FogBugz

This topic explains how to integrate TestRail with FogCreek FogBugz. There are currently three ways to integrate TestRail with FogBugz, namely:

You don’t have to use all listed integration options and you can mix and match the integration with other tools. Configuring the integration usually only takes a few minutes and this guide explains how to configure the integration and how it works.

Defect URLs

The defect URLs are used to let TestRail know how to access your FogBugzinstance. Once the URLs have been configured, a new Add link appears next to the Defects field in the Add Test Result dialog. This link allows you to jump to FogBugz’ New Case form to report a new bug. Additionally, entered case IDs are linked to your FogBugz instance to make it easier to track the status of your cases.

To configure FogBugz’ URLs in TestRail, select Administration > Integration. You can alternatively enter separate bug tracker URLs for each project under Administration > Projects. Use the following example URLs to configure the addresses:

Manuscript installation
Defect View Url: https://your-server/f/cases/%id%
Defect Add Url:  http://your-server/f/cases/new

Manuscript on demand
Defect View Url: https://your-name/f/cases/%id%
Defect Add Url:  https://your-name/f/cases/new

Defect plugins

Defect plugins can be used to implement a deeper bug tracker integration and TestRail comes with a ready-to-use FogBugz defect plugin. To configure the defect plugin, select Administration > Integration and select FogBugz in the Defect Plugin dropdown list (Fogbugz is the legacy name for Manuscript).

The next step is to configure all the necessary connection settings in the Configuration field. Project-specific plugins and configuration settings can optionally be specified under Administration > Projects.

When the defect plugin has been configured, a new Push link is shown next to the Defects field in the Add Test Result dialog. Clicking the link will open a popup dialog that enables you to push a bug report to FogBugz without leaving TestRail.

Once the test result is added, hovering the mouse cursor over a case ID will open a window with useful information and status details about the case in FogBugz.


The FogBugz defect plugin was built to work with a standard FogBugz configuration. TestRail allows you to customize the integration to work with your own custom fields or to map users between TestRail and FogBugz . Please see the following articles for details on how to customize the integration:

Reference URLs

The reference URLs are used to link test cases to cases stored in FogBugz via the References field. Once the URLs have been configured, case IDs entered in the References field are linked to your Manuscript instance to make it easier to jump to related issues, feature specifications or requirements.

To configure Manuscript’ URLs for the References field, select Administration > Integration. You can alternatively enter separate reference URLs for each project under Administration > Projects. Use the following example URLs to integrate TestRail with FogBugz:

Manuscript installation
Reference View Url: https://your-server/f/cases/%id%
Reference Add Url:  https://your-server/f/cases/new
Manuscript on demand
Reference View Url: https://your-name/f/cases/%id%
Reference Add Url:  https://your-name/f/cases/new
