Reference field add does not insert the Jira id


When I add a Jira issue via the reference field in testrail the identification number is not inserted in the reference field.
Is it the desired behavior ?
if yes, Have you planned to add this behavior in the future ?



Hi Christian,

Thanks for your posting. Unlike the Push Defect feature, the Add link for references would “only” open the add issue form in JIRA so there’s no direct way to automatically add the new issue ID to the References field unfortunately. This would be a manual step for the references but you would just need to copy the ID over to TestRail and this would link the cases to the JIRA issue.



Hi Tobias,
OK thank you for your reply


You are welcome, Christian!
