Run a Single Test

Applies to Zephyr Scale Server/Data Center 9.1, last modified on September 26, 2023

With Zephyr Scale, small and agile teams can manage testing in a lightweight and straightforward fashion. You can create and link test cases or acceptance tests to user stories/bugs and then fire up single test execution directly from the issue screen in Jira or the kanban board.

Using Zephyr Scale, you can manage your testing efforts without hassle and focus only on managing the test coverage and the test execution.

  1. In the Traceability section of an open issue, select the desired test case and click on the play icon to start a new single test execution without a test cycle.
