JIRA 8 and JIRA Test Management with TestRail

We are using the JIRA Test Management with TestRail on our JIRA Server and currently we are unable to upgrade to JIRA 8, because the plug-in doesn’t support it. JIRA Cloud is on the v8 for a long time and the plugin is available for JIRA cloud, so why does the plugin still has issues with JIRA Server v8?

Hey Alexey,

Thanks for the post! We’ve tested the TestRail for Jira add-on and can confirm it is fully compatible with Jira 8. In Jira, the Compatibility for Cloud and Server versions are listed separately, which is what would cause any warnings you may see when attempting to download the plugin. We’ve now updated the version compatibility in the Atlassian marketplace to include v8 now so you should be able to get it installed without any issues.

If you have any problems getting it installed please reach out to us at and we’ll be happy to assist further.
