Jira-Pulgin | Push custom field with default value?


We are using Jira as aour Defect tracker.

I’v set up everything I need to push defects from Testrail to jira.
We are using a customfield that is required. I configured this too:



Is there a way to set a default value for this custom field, e.g. the user name (another user variable I configured).

something like:
value=%jira_user% ?



Thanks for your posting. That’s currently not supported but TestRail and the defect plugins automatically remember any previously selected values (for each project and user).



I was also looking for this feature. It would be handy to fill in a value I have defined for my test run (I can already add it nicely to the description field) directly into a Jira custom field, to be used for Jira filtering/reporting. Is it possible to bump this request up the backlog? :slight_smile:


Hi Wendy,

Thanks for your feedback, that’s appreciated :slight_smile: It’s still planned to look into this but we don’t have a time frame currently for this feature request.
