Add a Custom Field multiple times against an issue?

Right, this may sound confusing from the start, but basically we want a Custom Field or similar where things like Test/Review Records can be entered. So each Issue may have multiple test and review records.

We want an easy way for develops to edit issues and record this information (i.e. who/when/result).

How can this be accomplished?

Hi Tom,

you can always add many additional custom fields to Screen scheme. E.g.




But only fields which will have value will be presented on screen.

Hope that helped you

But as the number of test/review runs is unknown, wouldn't that mean I need to create endless custom fields?

Can't JIRA handle this kind of thing within an issue?

I want to be able to specify the Current Date/Time, Current User, Test/Review Type, and Pass/Fail multiple times against an Issue. So basically a one to many relationship between an Issue and Test/Review entries.

JIRA only allows ONE instance of a field on the screen. The only option I can see is to put an unlimited text field on the screen and TRAIN people to use it to record the testing. If you only want to be able to review history you can have a transition present the type and pass/fail fields for the user to over write and use a post function to update the date/time and current user fields.

You will need a Test Management System inside JIRA like SynapseRT.
