I am using Zephyr for JIRA to create Test issues, and will group these Test issues via Test Cycles to repeat them a few times that align with key phases of my project.
In my JIRA project, I have a custom workflow for Test issues that have the following statuses:
If I view these Test issues in the Test Summary page (dropdown Tests > Test Summary), the Status shown here corresponds with the Workflow based status.
However, if I put this Test issue into a Test Cycle and execute the test cycle, then there is a separate set of Test Execution statuses:
However, it doesn't appear that these Test Execution statuses are linked in anyway to the Test issue status that are derived from the Workflow assigned to issues of type Test.
My only guess here is that the Workflow-derived status at the Test issue level refers to the test case for the overall project as a whole, and intended to be the longer term container item for the Test Cycles where this task can appear.
Thank you for your in-depth question. Currently, there is no link between JIRA's Issue Type workflow statuses and Zephyr for JIRA's execution statuses. As you have guessed, the workflow status is for the overall test issue and the test execution statuses are just for executions in that cycle.
A test issue can have a single status based on it's workflow. However, this test issue can be executed multiple times. Each time this test is run by a tester, it will have its own executions status that can be changed at any time and multiple times.
Your questions can be directly answered by saying that there are no interactions currently between an issue status and a Zephyr for JIRA execution status.
OK, that is a major problem for us, as Confluence, where we have linked test cases in Jira only shows the test issue status and not the latest test execution status. So confluence isnt updated with the latest exection status.
Has this not changed since three years ago?
