Link the cycles to stories in JIRA

We would like to link the test cycles to stories in JIRA. Is there any way which we can do that?

5 answers

This would be very useful. It would be ideal to be able to pull tests into a cycle and link that cycle to a story.
Since this doesn't seem possible, is there any way to view the progress of testing within a test cycle from a sprint board. So progress can be reviewed during a standup without having to navigate away from the sprint board?

I have same question, can we link test cycles to any story.

I have to link test execution cycle results to story

Hi Suruchi

Thanks for your interest in Zephyr.

As Johannes rightly suggested below is the flow you need to follow for achieving your desired result

Story->Link the Story to your Test Case (using the LINK functionality of Jira)->Add the Test case to the test cycle->Execute the test case.

You can see all the details of the executions in the test case linked to the story



you only can link testcases with cycles.

Hi Suruchi,

Are you using an add-on for Test Management? For example, Zephyr for JIRA.
