UI that connects with JIRA and receive information, Authentification question


Hi Guys,

I am thinking of create an UI scripts that connects via API calls to JIRA and receives information from the tickets in JIRA and then fill in some fields in the test cases.

I am wondering if it is possible to take my JIRA user information as a variable because i don’t want to write the user and password in the UI script.



Hi Antonio,

Thank you for the post. We would not normally recommend using a UI script in this manner and in fact it may be more difficult than it would be worth. I would recommend looking into the TestRail API instead along with the JIRA API to build a custom solution.

You can find information on our API here:


Hi Antonio,

Was wondering if you managed to accomplish this? I’m curious as I’m trying to do something similar. :slight_smile:
