I'm confused about how to use Bonfire. What I want to do is create a test session, add instructions for testing, and assign it to a tester.
If I create a session and enter an assignee, I can add instructions to Additional Information. Once the session is created, I can edit it to revise the additional info but I cannot add notes to it because it's not assigned to me.
If I create the session without assigning it then I can add instructions to additional info or add a note.
Neither option feels right. Specifying the testing instructions seems like such an integral part of creating a test session that there should be a section for it. It's also important that users other than the assignee should be able to add notes.
People use sessions in a variety of ways, often requiring different types of supporting information. Catering for this variety requires a generic field, hence the single Additional Information field. This field accepts wiki markup so you can add your own headers for whatever sections you need in it. The documentation for this notation is here: https://jira.atlassian.com/secure/WikiRendererHelpAction.jspa?section=all
Session activity is reserved for the person performing the testing, which is why only the assignee can create notes. The next release of Bonfire supports multiple assignees per session, so you will be able to join a session assigned to another person to add notes very soon.
I understand but I don't feel that this solution caters to the most common usage where a session is created, assigned and instructions provided. Part of my objection is just labeling -- Additional Information feels like the wrong field for necessarry information -- and part is that the field is a small (but vertically expandable in FF) textbox. But we can work with it.
Hi James, I'm sorry I don't quite follow. Take a look at this screendshot:
