We are using the X-ray App to run our Quality Assurance and Testing department.
In the Xray app, you have the option to create a Defect issue straight from a Test case execution. I would like to auto fill certain fields in the Defect with data that is already in the Test case execution.
In particular, I'd like to populate a custom field with a list of the "steps" that are detailed in the Test case.
Here's what I'd like to do:
Is this something that can be done through the API? I'm not familiar with programming, at all, but wondering if this is possible.
There is an Xray configuration that enables that option, to activate it you must access the "Add-on" tab on your Jira Administration Tools, go to the "Miscellaneous" window under the "Xray" section and travel to the "Defect Default Values" area:
There you can enable the "Include Steps Table in Description" like it is shown on the image above.
Hope this helps!
No, currently, only the Test Steps are copied over to the New Defect if the mentioned option is enabled. No other fields are passed along, nor any extra data.
