I’m relatively new to TestRail and am carrying out a proof of concept for our organisation. We are using JIRA Cloud with User Story, Task, Bug and Epic issue types configured.
What I’m trying to effect is a link between bugs and user stories in JIRA through TestRail. Here’s my Use Case (any constructive criticism welcome!)
From a user story I create a test case
In TestRail I create a test run and execute the test case
The test case fails so I ‘push’ a defect to JIRA (which correctly raise a bug issue type in JIRA)
I want to capture the User Story that is associated to the test case (issue links - I have this working)
When I submit the defect to JIRA I effectively have a new bug issue in JIRA which contains a link reference to the User Story that ‘failed’
Points to note:
- I have used the automatic JIRA Configuration in TestRail
- I have switched on what I think are the relevant push.fields
When I view the bug in JIRA the link reference that I capture via TestRail is not visible anywhere.
Is there a separate field that I need to configure for the bug screen in JIRA, or, is this functionality just not working?
I’ve searched through the forums and had a mess around with both application configurations but would appreciate any help with this.
