TestRail Released

TestRail has been released today with fixes for the following issues:

  • Jira users weren’t being displayed in the Jira plugin assignee dropdown (partly due to an upstream bug). We’ve resolved the situation with a slightly different implementation of the code our end, so you shouldn’t experience any further issues when assigning defects using the Jira plugin.
  • We introduced a bug in 5.7.1 that resulted in erroneous assignments when editing test results. That’s now been fixed too. Going forward, when editing a test result, the assignee won’t be changed unless you explicitly change it during the edit.
