Integration points between Jira and Zephyr Scale allow you to view and manage testing efforts, oftentimes without leaving the issue. From a Jira issue, you can link related traceability/coverage items, such as test cases and cycles, and you can view linked testing results at a glance.
Displaying Zephyr Scale Information in Jira Issues
- To enable Zephyr Scale information to display in Jira Issues, click the Zephyr Scale logo on the Jira issue.
- The Zephyr Scale section appears.
- Depending on the linked and related Zephyr Scale items, test-related subsections may appear, as well.
- You can disable the Zephyr Scale sections on the issue by clicking the Ellipses icon, then Hide Zephyr Scale.
- You can view and access traceability links/info by clicking Traceability in the panel on the right side of the page.
Create and Link a New Test Case
- Click the Create New Test Case (+ icon) in the issue’s Zephyr Scale section, and the Create Test Case screen appears.
- Enter your test case information on each of the tabs.
- The Jira issue is automatically linked on the Traceability tab of the new test case.
- When you’ve added all the information for the new test case, click Save, and the test case, along with its status, appears on the Jira issue.
Create a Test Case on Another Project
Zephyr Scale also gives you the ability to create test cases for a project other than the project from which you’re viewing a Jira issue.
Just click the Dropdown icon in the issue’s Zephyr Scale section of the issue, then click Create Test Case on Another Project.
You’ll be prompted to select a project, then the Create Test Case appears, where you can add your test-case details.
Add and Link an Existing Test Case
You can define an issue’s test coverage by linking existing test cases to it.
- Click the Dropdown icon in the issue’s Zephyr Scale section, then click Add Existing Test Case.
- The selection screen appears, where you can select all of the existing test cases you want to add to the Jira issue.
- After you make your selections, click Add, and the test case links, including the statuses, appear on the Jira issue.
- And, as expected, the links are bi-directional, so not only do the test-case links appear on the Jira issue, but the link to the Jira issue appears on the test case’s Traceability tab.
