Is it able to look on test results in JIRA for users without TestRail account?


#1

Hi,
We have JIRA Server and TestRail Server. Integration is configured.

Could random JIRA user who has no TestRail account view the:
1.Test Results
2. TestRail Dashboard on above panel

And could I configure Test Rail dashboard in JIRA panel somehow?

With 5.0 the TR Dashboard can be used in an iframe: http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-integration/dashboards-introduction
I assume JIRA has the ability to do this but we don;t use JIRA where I work. Anyone who needs to see this needs a TR license however. Pretty much - if a person needs to see any type of live data from TR (outside of a report sent via email) then they need a license.

I meant few nore things, so I’ try to ask my question with more details:

  1. JIRA user who has no TR account - would they be able to see this section somehow(https://i.imgur.com/PA7Hhw2.png)? Or user should be signed in TR account anyway?
  2. And again -JIRA user, that is not signed in to TR - could he access this dashboard - https://i.imgur.com/T6au3Ho.png ?

And thanks for Dashboard config guide

  1. My understanding of hat they have said before - anyone who needs to see things in TR needs to have a license. They don’t have to be logged in necessarily (though that may depend on how authentication is done over the network) but they have t have a license.

  2. See #1.
