How can we achieve requirements/testcase traceability between Greenhopper and HP QC?

We currently have HP QC for Test Script Management and our Agile Development teams are using Confluence, Greenhopper and Jira. How can our test team achieve requirements/testcase traceability between Greenhopper and HP QC?

There are a couple of JIRA plugins out there. Search for "Quality Center" JIRA plugins on Plugin Exchange: I've not used them though.

If you happen to migrate also your Test Management to JIRA in the future (using e.g. the Zephyr plugin), then you can use the JIRA PDF View Plugin to generate traceability matrix reports from requirements and testcases. All within JIRA.

It works like this: you specify the issue link types you want to be checked (e.g. "verified by" from requirements to testcases) and then the plugin renders the dependencies and their directions like:

Ferenc, thanks for mentioning Zephyr for JIRA and taceability. That is one of our products.

Another product, the Zephyr Enterprise Edition , can also produce strong traceability matrixes that can connect (any issue type in JIRA as a Requirement in Zephyr) to Zephyr Testcases to multiple executions of those testcases to any defects filed back into JIRA.

Kind Regards,



Following to your answers above, how can you collaborate between JIRA Agile to HP ALM when test cases are DIFFERENT between the two systems? e.g. we have stories updated in Greenhopper and test cases updated in ALM. we would like to combine these two types into one serial of test cases that will be managed under HP ALM as one set. Does anypne faced this before?
