Link Your Project to Jira

Note

To connect a project to JIRA, you first need to create an integration with JIRA

The system has the ability to choose one of several JIRA projects in which you can add a defect. For example, separate projects for the front and backend, or separate projects for the API and mobile application.

Open the project settings, then select the external service type "JIRA", the JIRA project, and a default issue type. To complete the connection, click Link and Save.

When connecting a project, select one project for duplicates (if the creation of duplicates is enabled) and several projects for creating a defect. When creating a defect in Jira, you need to choose which project to create the defect in.

When connecting it to Jira, you can select three options: to duplicate tests created in TestGear in Jira (so that they can be viewed by anyone who has access to Jira but does not have access to TMS), to select the type of Jira issue with which TestGear will create defects in Jira, and to enable link integration

In the project's setting, you can select whether to duplicate tests created in TestGear in Jira. This allows them to be viewed by everyone who has access to Jira, but no access to TestGear. You can also select the Jira type issue that TestGear will use to 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 TestGear:

Implemented end-to-end integration when adding a reference to an issue in Jira to a test card. This means that if you add a link to an issue in JIRA in the Links field of a case in TestGear, in the case to which you have added a link, you automatically get the link to the case in TestGear.

There may be several such references, and they are also inherited.
For example, we have a link between issue JIRA #1 and the case in TestGear "A". Let's create issue #2 and link it to issue #1 with standard references within the JIRA. At the end of the process, we see that issue #2 has a reference to the case in TestGear "A", although we did not link them. This link is inherited from issue #1.

Switching to a TestGear 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 TestGear.

Creating a defect in Jira

In the project settings, the type of issue TestGear 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 Defect 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.

To link a case in TestGear and an issue in Jira, start typing the issue name in the Links field of the case card. Select the necessary issue in the search result that appears, click on it and press the button to save the link. The result of the operation will be linked case and issue with links to each other in different systems.
