Welcome to the FogBugz Development Community

It's easy to build upon the FogBugz development platform:

  • The FogBugz Plugin Interfaces and Plugin API allow you to customize and extend your FogBugz site by modifying existing functionality or adding new features. You can browse existing plugins at the FogBugz Plugin Gallery, or get started writing your own.
  • The FogBugz XML API allows you to use simply-formatted HTTP requests to perform custom actions and retrieve data from your FogBugz site. Once authenticated, any application using the FogBugz API can view and edit just about anything, from FogBugz cases to developer work schedules. See documentation or the FogBugz XML API Development Wiki.

This documentation covers the Plugin Interfaces and API. For help with using the XML API, we have documentation and tutorials here.
