Add your CrossBrowserTesting account email and authkey (you can find these on the Account Page when you are logged in). This will enable the user on our system to be able to post issues and comments directly to Jira projects from our test result screens. Add any additional CrossBrowserTesting account emails that should be authorized to post to Jira on the configure screen. You can also remove any users by clicking the x next their email under Existing Users.
