Documenting BDD Scenario's

Hi All, 

I'm a Test Manager working on a project that is following BDD. Currently we document our BDD scenario's in Description field in Jira however this is making it difficult to report on so I was just wondering if you have any advice on how we could structure it better so that I know how many scenario's we have and how many have been tested. 

Also does anyone know the best way to tag a story as functional? We have over 1000 user stories however not all are functional so need to find a way of tagging.


Thanks in advance

Hi @Clare Butcher 

How you capture your Behavior Driven Development (BDD) scenarios may depend upon how your team is defining the scenarios.  If they are all stand-alone, customer facing, you could split each into a task/story.  If not, please consider one of the testing addon tools to better manage the scenarios and the traceability you are asking about.

Regarding tagging issues as functional, have you considered using Labels, Components, or a custom field to do so?  I would suggest starting with Labels to help you learn if there is finer granularity than just "functional" that you want to manage.

Best regards,


Hi @Clare Butcher 

Writing BDD scenarios in description field is where we started a few years ago.  Since then we developed the AssertThat plugin for hosting all your BDD scenarios. 

The plugin allows you to have a central place to manage your features and scenarios, and also link / view them against each of your user stories.  It also has the reporting and traceability functionality you have eluded to in your message.

If you would like a demo then please get in contact 

Many Thanks
