How do I get Links to Test section



We need to link Test suites to Jira requirements, how do we get link address just to the Test section? I am able to get link to Test suite but not Test section.

Thanks for help in advance.



Hi Lavanya,

Thanks for your posting. Linking to a section is not directly possible but you can link each case to a JIRA issue by adding the JIRA issue ID to the References (requirements) field. You can use the mass-edit feature for linking an issue to multiple cases at the same time.

Are you already using the TestRail for JIRA add-on in JIRA? This allows you to quickly see all linked test cases and results from TestRail:

I hope this helps!



Ok thanks. I was looking more for links to Test sections so I can make
requirements traceability matrix on Jira.
Do you have any other ideas?

Hi Lavanya,

We would recommend linking the issue(s) to the cases in the section instead. You can create a traceability/coverage matrix in TestRail using the reports from the Reports tab. For example, the Cases > Coverage for References report generates a coverage matrix for cases <-> references (issues/requirements). The Results > Comparison for References report includes a side-by-side comparison across multiple runs based on the references (issues/requirements). The Defects > Summary for References report goes further and also includes possible defects entered for the test results.

I hope this helps!
