Show issue id and link to external issue from reports?


Is there a way to have the external issue tracker (Jira in our case) ids (as links to the external issue) as column in the test result reports? The current way of going to the test detail and from there wait for the pop-up to appear is quite uncomfortable.

Even better of course would be if we could also see the issue status directly on the report page (or at least directly on the detail view).


That would be good if it can be done… i would be use this as well.


Hello Bachi,

Thanks for your posting. Do you mean the new reports under the Reports tab (TestRail 3.0)? If so, yes, for most test related reports you can add a Defects/Defects All column to the test tables and this can be done on the Tests tab when creating a new report. Which report do you mean exactly?

It is currently not supported to include the Jira issue status but this is planned as well and we would like to look into this for a future version.
