Butler Powerup creating cards on wrong boards

Here's what's happening as we're migrating from Butler bot to the powerup.


On the board called "New Order Workflow" I open Butler list of commands. There is this one. This command:Capture.PNG

  • is not enabled
  • should not ever run on this board because the command is not related to this board.

Yet if I'm on that board and I click 'run now' on the command to test it, it CREATES a list called "Upcoming Events" on New Order Workflow and adds a card to it.

Shouldn't the command only run on the Enabled boards? It seems like "Run" forces a run on the board you are currently at, regardless of whether the command is enabled or not. The alternative of course is to specify a board for every command, but then I can't use the command on multiple boards.

@Jana Lombardi if you click "Run" on a command, then it will execute in the context of the board you're viewing when you click "Run".

Is there a reason you're not testing this on a board upon which the command is enabled?

@IainI find it strange that the command would run on a board it isn't enabled on. It's creating lists that don't exist on the testing board (the one it's not enabled on). Now that I know this peculiarity we will only test commands on the boards the command applies to.
