We are currently evaluating Zephyr as a tool for our test-management team. From an audit point of view we found one issue. Any user can delete test cycles.
Is there any way to prevent that?
Thanks Chris for considering it. However, since we had our requirements from audit department we decided to set up our test management by using JIRA itself. We defined a workflow for test cases as issue type) and test executions (as subtasks). So we could use the JIRA permissions to prevent deletion of anything. It is just working fine and fulfills all the requirements (for us).
Hi Udo, Philip,
There will be an audit trail in Zephyr for JIRA 2.0. I can't comment on its exact performance at this time, but recommend you examine the exact functionality and see if it fits your needs. Currently there isn't a "delete prevention" in 1.73 or in 2.0, but I'll share this feedback with our development team so they can considerr adding it in a future build.
I'll add that Zephyr for JIRA 2.0 should be out this week or next.
Thanks Chris for your answers - very much appreciated!
We look forward for release 2.0
Making SW-Testing inside JIRA for years we know the limits and pains using jira functionality (plus some plugins). The "zephyr way" is for sure much more advanced and brings some clear advantages.
I'm a bit late to the party. Anyway we had the same issue and AFAIK it's still not fixed. What we developed was some kind of hack to "hide" (client-side) the corresponding icons for users that are not in a specific project role. This however does not prevent users from playing with the URLs to find out the corresponding function but I guess in 99,9% it would be a sufficient solution.
In order to achieve this we used the JIRA Plugin CUTE for JIRA and developed a custom Extension for that in one day of work. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions on this matter.
(Disclaimer: we are the developer and maintainer of said Plugin)
