Test does not appear as an issue type after installing the Zephyr plugin
We have installed the Zephyr plugin but when I attempt to create a test (by selecting Create Issue), Test is not in option in the dropdown.
If you are not able to view the Test Issue type when you are trying to create a TEST, it means the issue type is not associated to the current scheme/project.
Please try the following instructions to associate the Test Issue type to your current project/scheme for both Zephyr for JIRA Cloud & Server.
1. Navigate to Administration icon (Cog icon) on the top right corner and select projects form the drop down menu.
2. Now click on that project from the list of projects visible, this will show the associated issue types scheme and issue types for that project.
3. Click on the Issue Type scheme and select "Edit Issue Types" from the "Actions" button on the right side of the page.
4. Here you will be able to drag and drop the required issue types to associate with your project.
If the issue persists please share the screenshot of the issue along with the atlassian.log file by submitting a support case with us at http://support.getzephyr.com.

Hi @Swapna Kumar Vemula [Zephyr],
Why is this crucial piece of instruction missing in the documents?
For beginners it's hard to find why the test issueType isn't available in their create issue screen. Thus please update the documentation.
There are two Zephyr plugins available on the Atlassian Marketplace. One is Called the Zephyr Enterprise Connector and the other is called Zephyr for JIRA. Which one did you install? If you installed the Connector then there won't be a issue type of test to use. If you installed Zephyr for JIRA, then I would expect a new Issue type of Test and also an entire new menu called "Tests."
@Nick Caruso : Please check that the issue type "Test" has been added to the schema for the project you are trying to create a test in. Regards,
Then it works.
@zephyr & @White Lion:
1/why did you not correct that issue ?
2/I use JIRA and zephy for education, would it be possible to get more trial time ?
I had the same problem, on the cloud version of JIRA, after installing the Zephyr for JIRA plugin. Adding the issuetype helped, though I'd expect that this issuetype would be enabled by default. The Test topmenu was available in Jira, but creating tests proved impossible.
NB - It turns out that the issuetype Test has to be manually enabled for each new project. Test is available in the JIRA configuration / Issues / Issue Type Schemes, but the type isn't available after creating a project.
