Update Existing JIRA Issue


We are new to TestRail. I have installed the JIRA addon and can create new JIRA Issues. Can some tell me how to update and existing JIRA Issue please. For example, we run a test on a bug fix and it fails. How do we tell TestRail to update the existing JIRA ticket with the updated information?
