Bonfire Link Type Text and Direction

I believe someone may have edited the text for our Bonfire link type text. This is what we currently have:

outward - testing discovered
inward - discovered while testing

Can someone with a correctly working install of Bonfire please confirm if that text and direction is correct, or do we have it going the wrong way? Thanks! :)

Hi Natalie,

If you check out this documentation it clarifies how the outward/inward descriptions should be set:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Issue+Linking

The outward can be thought to say 'causes/discovers/influences' etc

The inward says 'is influenced by/discovered by/caused by' etc

Bonfire sessions can be related to an issue. When that session is completed you can then link to any issues that were raised during this session. The issues raised would be 'discovered while testing' the issue related and vice versa.

Hope that clarifies!

Thanks very much, Osman - I have confirmed that our link direction text is the same as the documentation, so I will reply to the email thread so we can set up a meeting to discuss the bug we are experiencing with Bonfire with link direction reversing. :)

Update - we've figured out this is happening when a test session is completed, and you opt to link the discovered issues to an issue associated with the session at session creation. Can someone please comment with what the correct inward and outward descriptions should be for Bonfire? Trying to figure out if we had edited ours at sometime and Bonfire is "fixing" that, or if there's a bug in our current install (or something else).

*bump* so no one is able to comment or answer with what the correct linking direction text is?
