Connecting to Jira

Go to the admin section and select the "Connect to Jira" tab.

Create a Jira connection or edit an exiting connection.

Connect the Test IT project to a Jira project, fill in the required information, and create the test.

When connecting a project to Jira, you can select two options in its settings: duplicate tests created in the TMS in Jira (so they can be viewed by anyone who has access in Jira, but not in the TMS) or select the type of Jira issue with which Test IT will create defects in Jira.

Duplicating a test in Jira

Open a created test. The test contains a link to its duplicate in Jira.

Follow the link to Jira. The test is now open in Jira. The test contains all the data from Test IT:

Creating a test from Jira

Open the Jira project for which the Test IT plugin has been activated, then go to "Issue" and press the "Create test case" button.

If the Jira project is linked to multiple Test IT projects, select the project in which a test should be created.

Fill out the case and save it.

Switching to a Test IT test from its duplicate in Jira

Create a connection to Jira and a test based on "Connect to Jira" and open the created test. The test contains a link to its duplicate in Jira.

Follow the link to Jira. The test is now open in Jira. The test contains all the data from Test IT.

Creating a defect in Jira

In the project settings, the type of issue Test IT will create as a defect must be selected (these could be either standard or user issue types that are in the integrated Jira).

If the project is connected to Jira and the type of created defects is indicated in test case mode, a "Create bug" button will be available in Jira.

When the "Save and create bug" button is pressed, the result of the test case will be saved, and a pre-filled bug-creation form will be opened in Jira.

Add the name and creator of the defect to the form. Links to the test case that failed to run have already been added in the description, as well as a link to the test run result. Once the defect has been saved in Jira, it will be automatically linked to the test run result from which it was created. A link with the type, number, and name of the defect in Jira will be created.

Detailed info on Jira issues

If a project is connected to a Jira instance, all links to issues automatically transform to the way they appear in Jira.

When you hover over such links, you can see detailed information on the issue.

A tooltip appears showing the type, priority, assignee and actual status of the issue in Jira.
