Using TestRail with JIRA works well so far, but even deeper integration into JIRA would be really useful. I’d love to be able to link JIRA issues with failing tests, such that the current status would be easily visible from JIRA. For example, I could like 2-3 test failures to a single JIRA, perhaps representing 2-3 versions of the affected software. When a developer fixed one and sent it to QA, a tester might update one of them to pass, but if other versions were not corrected, the JIRA would still show RED failures for the other two.
With our setup, test automation would automatically tell the developer whether that specific JIRA had corrected all the failures or not, something like a TDD or BDD setup.
Has anyone looked at implementing a JIRA plugin for test rail? Given TestRails existing MiniAPI, it should be relatively easy to implement an asynchronous call to the TestRail installation for a specific test status.
