Zapier offers an extensive list of applications you can integrate with. You can use it to send incoming Issues to other applications. Here is a step by step explanation to set up a Zap based on Bugfender.

  1. Make sure you have an application with at least 1 issue

Check inside your application, in the Issues tab, that you have at least one issue.

2. Create a Zap and link your account
Use this link to Create a Zap starting from Bugfender. Create a Zapier account if you do not have one (it's free). Then press Create this Zap.

3. Set up the Trigger
Select New Issue as trigger.

Then select to Connect a new account and give access to Zapier by providing your Bugfender username and password:

Note: If you signed up to Bugfender with Github you might not have a password. Use the password recovery feature to set a password.

Then, select your application from the dropdown menu:

Then press Continue. Last, test your account by pressing Fetch & continue. If everything works, you will see a message Test Successful!

Now you have configured Bugfender as data source (a Trigger, in Zapier's jargon). Next you want to tell Zapier what to do when a New Issue comes in.

4. Set up an action
Select the application you want to integrate with. In this example we will use Slack to Send a direct message. 

The important bit is the Template screen: compose your message and use the dropdown button to fetch data from the issue:

5. Good to go!
If you reached this point, you have a fully operational Zap. Now you can see your Bugfender Issues in your favorite issue tracker, messaging application or... whatever you can think of!
