fogbugz-orm 0.2.8

FogBugz API Object Relational Mapper (ORM)

Package Documentation

Latest Version: 0.2.9

**fogbugz-orm - FogBugz ORM wrapper around the FogBugz XML API**

This is a python interface to the `FogBugz XML API`_
`FogBugz`_ issue tracker. It wraps the
`FogBugzPy`_ python interface, which provides non-typed python binding via
`BeautifulSoup`_. As well as type conversion, this ORM interface provides
direct JSON serialization of the FogBugz data using the `jsontree`_ module.

.. warning::
It is HIGHLY recommended that you use an SSL connection to the FogBugz
server for secure authentication.

Quick Start

**Comparing FogBugzPy to FogBugz-ORM**

Example code from `FogBugzPy`_ documentation:

.. code:: python

resp ="ixBug,sTitle")

for case in resp.cases.findAll('case'):
print "%s: %s" % (case.ixbug.string,

Equivalent FogBugz-ORM code:

.. code:: python

cases ="ixBug,sTitle")

for case in cases:
print "%d: %s" % (case.ixBug, case.sTitle)

* You can access the array of cases directly as a list.
* The column names are referred to in their proper mixed case matching the API
as they must be for the cols argument; ``ixBug``, ``sTitle``.
* The data is extracted and properly converted; ``ixBug`` is an integer, and
``sTitle`` is a UTF-8 converted string.

**Get all the cases from the 'To Be Closed' filter and close them.**

.. code:: python

import fborm

### login form 1
fbo = fborm.FogBugzORM('https://hostname/', secret_token)

### Find the 'To Be Closed' filter
filters = fbo.listFilters()
for filt in filters:
if filt.sName == 'To Be Closed':

### Set it as the current filter

### Get all cases in that filter
cases =

### Make sure they are closed
for case in cases:
if not case.fOpen:
if 'Active' in case.sStatus:

**Create a new case**

.. code:: python

import fborm
import jsontree

### login form 2
fbo = fborm.FogBugzORM('https://hostname/', username=u, password=p)

bug = jsontree.jsontree()
bug.sCategory = 'Bug'
bug.sProject = 'My Project'
bug.sArea = 'Some Area'
bug.sTitle = 'The title of the bug'
bug.tags = ['tag1', 'tag2', 'tag3']
bug.sEvent = """
Some nice long comment for the change being made

ixBug =

**List some data**

.. code:: python

import fborm

fbo = fborm.FogBugzORM('https://hostname/')
### login form 3
fbo.logon(username=u, password=p)

people = fbo.listPeople()
projects = fbo.listProjects()
areas = fbo.listAreas()
areas_in_proj = fbo.listProjects(ixProject=projects[0].ixProject)

### if you are using the CustomFields plugin
custom_field_names = fbo.listCustomFieldNames()

**CustomFields Plugin Data**

The CustomFields plugin allows you to add yor own elements to cases in
`FogBugz`_. These elements are added to the `FogBugz XML API`_ with a prefix
and a unique magic string suffix. Also, any punctuation is transformed,
so you will need to look up what your custom field is with
:py:meth:`fborm.FogBugzORM.listCustomFieldNames`. Once you know that,
you can simplify your code by setting a ``namemap`` for the returned data.
This means that if you have multiple servers with the same CustomFields,
they will have different names in the API. Having a per-server ``namemap``
greatly simplifies your code.

.. code:: python

import fborm

### Mapping of code name to what it is in the FogBugz XML API.
custom_field_map = dict(
sBranch = 'plugin_customfields_at_fogcreek_com_branchg83'

### fborm type mapping between the FogBugz XML API element to python type
### only list the items you want returned.
fbBugType = dict(
ixBug = fborm.fbint,
sTitle = fborm.fbstring,
sBranch = fborm.fbstring,
dtOpened = fborm.fbdatatime,

### supply a ``namemap`` for mapping custom fields to more friendly
### in code names.
fbo = fborm.FogBugzORM('https://hostname/', namemap=custom_field_map)
### login form 4
fbo.token = secret_token

### All the cases in the last week
bugs ='opened:"This Week"', casetype=fbBugType)
for bug in bugs:
print bug.ixBug, bug.sBranch, bug.dtOpened.isoformat(), bug.sTitle

### if it is for the 'feature_x' branch, set it to be 'feature_xy'
if sBranch == 'feature_x':
bug.sBranch = 'feature_xy'
bug.sEvent = "The 'feature_x' branch was merged into 'feature_xy'"
del bug['dtOpened'] # only admins can set this.
fbo.edit(bug, fbBugType)
