Get Started



Zephyr Squad Server (formerly known as Zephyr for Jira Server) is a native application that resides in Jira Software or Jira Core and brings test management capabilities to any Jira project. The addition of Zephyr Squad to the Jira workspace allow users to create tests, plan tests, execute tests, and track their testing. The users can create and view tests in any Jira project, link it to other issues, execute it immediately or as part of a test cycle and can track detailed test metrics via customized widgets.

A new issue type called Test is also created and indicated by this icon: zephyr-icon.png. You can create a test just like any other issue type in Jira but the test has additional fields and capabilities. Like any other issue type, tests belong to a project. They have the same project key and numbering scheme, all the standard components, labels, versions etc. associated with it and can be searched, imported, exported and reported on. In addition, test cycles can be created for each version in a project and these tests can be executed as part of those test cycles or in an ad hoc manner. Tests can be searched for in the Issue Navigator and test executions can be searched for in the Execution Navigator. Test metrics can be tracked via gadgets that are part of the Test Dashboard and can also be found in the gadgets gallery to be added to any dashboard.
