"project_key is a required field" issue when using Jira

Hi folks.

If you’re seeing an error message like this “project_key is a required field” when using your TestRail for Jira add-in (the plugin that allows you to see your test cases, results and runs inside of Jira issues) - it’s because we rolled out an upgrade to the Jira plugin earlier today.

Please see our warning message here, and the release notes here.

In order to fix the issue, you just need to upgrade the TestRail for Jira plugin, in Jira, by navigating to the App Management area of your Jira instance and clicking on the Update button.

Unfortunately, the action does require Jira administrator privileges, so you’ll need to speak to your Jira administrator if you don’t have the necessary permissions.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused in the meantime.

Kind regards,
Simon.
