Let me first by saying that the viewing of testrail status and test cases from JIRA works quite well. But I also noticed that none of the testrail information displayed is actually available inside the JIRA database.
This makes querying in JIRA for coverage impossible and really puts a wrench in my plans. Now, I know you can query in TR for test cases that do not have a reference, but that is putting the horse behind the cart as my requirements are all stored as issues in JIRA and I need to approach the query from there.
What I would need in JIRA, as part of the issue record, is the following information: Test case ID, summary, test case type, status (this one I use to track progress) and last test result.
What I also would need, is that this information is continuously kept in sync or at least triggered manually.
Now, I can create custom fields in JIRA, write some code myself for the synchronization and be done with it, but I would like to think that I am not the only person who has run into this. I’d like to suggest a better more complete integration that is not just skin deep.
