BugHerd Integration

BugHerd is a bug tracker that presents a virtual representation of your website, allowing you to highlight any visual deviation before you log a bug regarding the same. The view presented by visual representation is shareable with your team and your clients. A note provided in BugHerd gets pinned on the UI, just like a sticky note sticks to a board. These pins help the developers to know the exact areas, where the UI needs improvement. Also, as developers click on the sticky note, they receive all the information related to the bug.

LambdaTest integration with BugHerd helps you in filing issues to your project in BugHerd directly from LambdaTest platform. With one-click integration you can push annotated issues to the project of your choice, assign it to the required team mate, and attach necessary screenshots. You can do all that while in the middle of a test session in LambdaTest platform. The fields populated by you when marking as bug through LambdaTest are displayed as information on the BugHerd for a testing instance.

BugHerd Integration with LambdaTest, like all of the integrations to 3rd party applications, is available for freemium as well as premium plan.

How to establish integration with BugHerd from your LambdaTest account?

Step 1: Login to your LambdaTest account. You would need to have Admin or User level access to see and install integrations.

Step 2: Select ‘Integrations’ from the left navigation menu bar. This will guide you to a screen where you will find a list of 3rd party applications, available to integrate with your LambdaTest account.

Step 3: Click on ‘ADD’ under the block that says ‘BugHerd’.


Step 4: Once you click on install, you will be redirected to the below screen. You will be asked to provide your BugHerd API Token credentials in the highlighted fields to establish integration with LambdaTest.

Api token

What is an API token? When two different applications interact with each other, a server-to-server communication is established. API token is needed for authenticating user identity from one server to another, by fetching user-owned resources available on the server from where the communication is initiated. API token has been a necessity for maintaining security and data integrity of any application. They are just as vital to an end user as they are to an application. API tokens are relevant if an end user logs in an application through a 2-step verification process.

Step 5: To find the API token, visit your BugHerd account. Go to‘Settings’ tab.


Step 6: As you click on Settings, you will find the “API Token” under the section Authentication Token. Copy your API token.
