Evaluating JIRA + Zephyr for Test case management

We recently installed JIRA & Zephyr add-on for test case management. We did initial walk through with Zephyr. Currently we not sure how to implement it in our scenario. We have software product, with tens of features. We have developed test case for the same as well. But the issue we are facing are,

- we get enahncements in features.

- we expand the test cases for the respective features.

- we plan the test cycle for the enahancements and respective features.

We are not sure this scenario can be implemented. Can anyone suggest what is the best way to implement it?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Vikas,

The only way you can get it to work as per your requirement is to clone a cycle and rename it.

Once a cycle is created you can add new test cases to the existing one in the cycle.

Note:The test case execution status will be unexecuted for the cloned cycle.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
