Site Configuration

To adjust the overall configuration of your FogBugz site, log in as an administrator and click the Site link on the Administrative Tools bar. You can change these settings on the Site Configuration screen:

• SMTP Server Enter the network name, DNS name, or IP address of your outgoing mail server. Enter localhost if the mail server is on the same machine as FogBugz. Enter NONE if you don't want FogBugz to send any notification e-mail at all.

• SMTP User: If your SMTP server requires you to log in, provide the username here.

• SMTP Password: If your SMTP server requires you to log in, provide the password here.

• Notification Return Address: This is the apparent return address for notification e-mails. Usually, you want this to be a fake address, so people don't reply to those automatic mails. The example.com domain is reserved for fake addresses, so that's what FogBugz defaults to.

• Log On Method: FogBugz offers three log on methods with increasing levels of security. The first is "Names in dropdown, no passwords." This provides no security, and lets anyone log on to any account. This method is useful in small organizations where you trust everyone and are behind a firewall so there is no risk of public access to the FogBugz server. The second log on method is "Names in dropdown, with passwords." Every user can have a password, but the list of users is shown in a drop-down box in the log on screen. This will allow anyone who can access the FogBugz server to determine a list of names of users. If some of those users had blank or easily guessed passwords, a malicious user could break into FogBugz. The final method is "Type email address and password." This provides a moderate level of security, forcing each user to type their address and password to log on, and does not provide a public list of users.

• Log on: Determines whether the "Remember me at this computer" option appears on the log on page.

• New User Control: Normally only administrators can create FogBugz accounts. By changing this setting to "Anybody can create an account," you will allow anyone who can access FogBugz to make their own account. This is useful if your FogBugz server is secure inside a firewall and you have a large number of potential users in your organization.

• Database: These controls let you choose the type of database server and enter the connection string for the server. FogBugz will normally set this during setup.

• Extra Fields: Lets you set up any two text fields (such as Version and Computer) that will be included with cases.

• FogBugz URL: The full URL of the FogBugz server.

• Working Schedule: A hyperlink to the screen where you can adjust the working schedule (which is used for calculating due dates).

• Source Control URL for Logs: The URL to use for displaying source code control logs.

• Source Control URL for Diffs: The URL to use for displaying source code control diffs.

• Date Format: The format to use for displaying dates. The default is to query the user's browser for the setting to use.

• Upload File Size Maximum: The maximum size for a file that can be uploaded as an attachment to a case.

• Reset FogBugz Autosort: If you've made serious changes to the way that you want to classify incoming messages, you can click this link to tell FogBugz AutoSort to start its learning process over again.

■Caution The SMTP username and password will be stored in clear text in the Windows registry so that FogBugz can use them to log on whenever needed. Also note that SMTP is a clear-text protocol, so if the SMTP server is on a different computer, the username and password will be sent in clear text across the network.
