We’re excited to announce that TestRail 6.3 will be released this Sunday, 14 June 2020!
TestRail 6.3 will deliver enhancements to the TestRail for Jira plugin along with a number of other improvements and bug fixes. An official release announcement will be posted on Sunday with more details.
If you use Jira Server or Jira Data Center, please enable automatic updates for your Jira add-ons before the end of this week to avoid any potential service interruptions. Older versions of the TestRail for Jira plugin will not work with TestRail 6.3.
(If you do not wish to enable automatic updates, you can also manually update your TestRail for Jira app after the release. For more information about how to update your Jira apps and add-ons, check out Atlassian’s instructions here.)
Jira Cloud customers will also need to update their plugin version. If you are a Jira administrator, you can do so by navigating to the App Management area of your Jira instance, expanding the TestRail for JIRA Test Management app, and clicking on the Update button.
If you do not update the plugin in your Jira Cloud or Server/Data Center instance, the plugin will not operate correctly and you will see “Missing project ID” errors when attempting to create test cases from Jira, for example.
We strongly recommend you carry out the necessary actions described above, in order to benefit from the TestRail 6.3 improvements!
