First steps with Foglyn tutorial

First steps with Foglyn cheat sheet

Foglyn includes "First steps with Foglyn" cheat sheet. This is step-by-step tutorial about how to setup Foglyn with your FogBugz repository, and how to create query to display your tasks in Task List.

Task List

Task List displays your tasks from all repositories. In this screenshots, we have defined categories using our FogBugz filters ("My Cases" and "My Prio 1 cases"). Tasks are sorted by priority, which is displayed as exclamation mark.

Case Details

Foglyn shows you all details about case, and allows you to change it as well. Simply enter new comment, attach file or screenshot, change attributes like Project or Priority, and press Submit. Are you offline? You can save your changes locally, and submit them when you are online again!


After you activate your case, Mylyn remembers which files are related to this case. Simply put, related files are those files, which you open or edit while case is activated. You can easily switch between various cases by activating them and Mylyn will automatically open related files to current case.

Resolving case

Fixed your case? You are now ready to resolve it, that is marking case as fixed or implemented. Simply enter new comment, choose "Resolve" action and select proper resolution. You can also optionally attach context to this case, to share it with other people from your team!

Creating new tasks from markers

Is your unit test failing? Does FindBugs report a problem you want somebody takes a closer look to? Simply create new task from failed test or problem marker.
