Need to capture results from multiple testers

I have a JIRA instance used for bug tracking a fed-level government application. Each state needs to test an issue fix before the code is released into production. How can I capture each QA Testers test results (Which includes 4 custom fields - O.S., Database Tested, Version Tested, Pass/Fail Results) in a way that can be easily viewed in a dashboard.

I decided to treat each QA Testing event as a custum subtask with the custum fields that I needed. I also made the custum fields viewable from the main JIRA Issue and created a shared dashboard for everyone to see the testing results.

You may want to consider a test management tool, and integration with JIRA.

Otherwise some workarounds could be found through a workflow event and a scripting plugin.

For instance when an issue of a particular type moves from "Under Development" to "User Testing" you could automaticly spawn a number of child tickets. You could even use a custom group/user field for a list of assignees to generate tickets for.

Or if you need more power/comfort then groovy scripts you can write your own java class to act as a post-function
