how to execute test from jira ? For example i have a java application or a command-line tool, i want start the execution from jira and report it as PASSED or FAILED . Is it possible in JIRA ?
If yes please send the steps. Thanks for the help.
You'll need to do some coding - you need a post-function that can execute the external programs and import the results.
I'd look at the script runner to get started with.
However, I'd also recommend a look at external build and test management tools which are far better suited to running repeated tests and reporting on them. Having a single Jira issue rapidly becomes quite inflexible and uninformative.
Take an example - "I found a bug in application X on my 'phone". That's a Jira issue. The writers of the application write a test case to cover fixing it (where do you keep that case?). The developers do a bit of hacking and say they've fixed it, so you do a test run. It fails, so you re-develop and fix it again, and re-run the test. Then you realise the test plan was missing something, so you add it and re-run the test. Then google update the OS and it might affect the bug, so you re-run the test as a regression test. You can see that a simple test on one bug has many runs, against different versions and even the test can change.
