Can you use the variables for the templates when attaching to an existing issue and not creating a new issue

I would like to be able to do something similar to below. Or have it pull all of the variables when attaching a screenshot to an existing issue instead of Creating a new issue.

Hi abazelle,

Good idea, and technically, there is not really a reason why we cannot do this anymore since Bonfire was made to evaluate variables at time of submit.

However, was url the URL the only thing you are looking for? Because that will get automatically attached anyway in your comment if you keep the checkbox ticked beneath: "Add environment details to comment".


We use many varables, and have created a bunch of our own. We like the use of these simply because most of our testing is done by very inexperienced people who really don't know why problems are happening. We must then try and get our development team to reproduce issues and the more information they get the easier it is to do that.

Thanks abazelle. Would you be able to share what variables these are (i.e. what do they do?) It would be great for giving us (and others) ideas about what they can do with variables!
