Create user stories and issues with Jira and link them to scenarios within CucumberStudio. Get the add-on in Atlassian Marketplace for free: HipTest add-on.

This add-on enables to link CucumberStudio scenarios or tests and test results with any kind of Jira issue and the integration is in real time. So if you change/rename a scenario, or add a new test result, your Jira will be instantly notified.

Setup your project

Before going any further, if you are using CucumberStudio Enterprise with Jira Server, you first need to configure the HipTest add-on.

If you are using CucumberStudio cloud with Jira Server, you need to allow access to CucumberStudio for the following IP addresses: 185.60.151.19 and 94.125.104.17.

You can go on reading once everything has been set up or if you are using Jira Cloud.

Step 2: Select a list of Jira projects

In order to create Jira issues directly from CucumberStudio, you have to setup your current CucumberStudio project and link it with your Jira project(s).

Mandatory fields and troubleshooting

If your Jira issue type has custom mandatory fields, CucumberStudio will allow you to fill them in. Currently most of the issue types are supported. If your issue types are unsupported, don’t hesitate to contact us.

CucumberStudio can only display custom mandatory fields that are associated to the Jira Default Issue Screen of your project. If the creation of an issue fails, don’t hesitate to check the Screens configuration of your custom mandatory fields:
