Is it possible to automatically create a test session on transition of an issue without a user doing it manually? For instance, could this be done through a custom webwork action of some kind?
Just to clarify a little further, I would like the pop-up "createsession.jspa" to appear when a user transitions from a particular status. Is this possible?
For now, neither JIRA Capture or JIRA has this feature build-in.
Both products provide the tools, that could be used for that:
But even having these tools, you would need to write some scripts to make these two work together.
As you've requested, here are some more directions on how to handle this.
JIRA Capture provides REST APIs for Test Sessions
JIRA Capture does not have public API for the managing test sessions, so you have to use Capture internal APIs. Internal APIs means that breaking changes can be shipped with a version update.
The rest URL is:
Mind that you may be running JIRA on some context, (e.g.: /jira/rest/bonfire/1.0/sessions)
The request payload is:
Content type has to be applicaiton/json.
Hint: you can browse the request data using Chrome Dev Tools activated, when creating a Test Session with a browser add-on.
JIRA can trigger a post-function on a workflow transition
JIRA provides webhooks, that can be executed on a workflow transition. More information is here: https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-architecture/webhooks
Alternatively, you can use some marketplace plug-in that will execute the required rest call during the workflow transition.
Hope this helps.
