Integration defects with Jira


Hello - i am trying to implement the Rest API and experienced the following when I tried to “Push” a defect to Jira.

Plugin “Jira_REST” returned an error: customfield_10026: Module is required.

Any words of advice?


Hi Joe,

Thanks for your posting. It looks like your JIRA has some custom fields that are configured to be mandatory. You can add those fields to the Push Defect dialog in TestRail as follows (as part of the configuration under Administration > Integration):

It’s alternatively also possible to remove the mandatory status from the field in JIRA but I don’t know if this is an option for you and your team.
