We have an existing issue type called "Test" in JIRA. Is it possible to use a different name for Zephyr? Maybe "Zephyr Test"? If so, how do I do that? I tried to rename the "Test" issue type created, but Zephyr didn't seem to recognize it and I think it actually went ahead and created a new "Test" issue type.
So now in our system we have 3 issue types:
Currently there is not a way to rename isuse type Test to something else. It needs to stay as issue type Test. If you try to change it to something else, it will lose the funtionality Zephyr for JIRA has to offer such as the ability to create test steps.
You should probably delete any of the other Issue types that do not create an actual Zephyr test. It can become very confusing if you have too many Test issue types in the drop down, but only one of them works.
I am not 100% sure if you can change the issue type name. What I can tell you is this; the issue type Test is a standard JIRA issue type. It is just like a Bug or a Task or any other JIRA isssue type. This means that it will follow the same rules as any other JIRA issue type. If you can change Bug to say something else but still function as a bug, then you will be able to change Test to say something else and function as a Zephyr Test.
I think you can do this from the JIRA Administration page, but you may want to check with Atlassian. If you navigate to Administration>Issues>Issue Types, you will see all of your JIRA issue types. Next to each issue type is an "Edit" option. Here I believe, you can change the name of the issue type to say something else.
