Hello. I am working on external project and we would like to import test cases which we have in XLSX into Zephyr.
My google-fu lead me here: Import which lead me here Zephyr for JIRA Importer Utility
but that is kinda out of the question because we don't have control over the Jira (the 3rd party has). I have checked what fields does importer has available and as you can see bellow there's very little.
Can it be done with the Importer instead of that utility? We might be able to ask the 3rd party to make changes to importer settings and I just need to know if it can be done. If not, we would just do it manually.
Thanks in advance for your help!
The Importer Utility uses the REST API, so you don't need 'local' access, only network connectivity over ports 8080 and 443. Ask the third party to accommodate this and you're in business.
As for the built-in Importer, it supports all the fields of all the issues within the project you are accessing. If the field isn't shown on the Importer's screen after you connect to a project, then that field hasn't been configured to be visible on the associated issue's edit screen. If you resolve that, the field should be available to you.
You specifically mentioned 'test steps'. The field you need to add is called 'Zephyr Teststep'. If you add that field to the Test issue's edit screen, when you use the Importer to bring data into a Zephyr Test (issue) your Importer screen will show the three test case data fields, as per this screen grab:
