Can we create Test Sessions with Jira Automation?

We're using "Capture for Jira" (aka Bonfire? aka Zephyr?) for managing test sessions.

Is there a way to automatically create test sessions via Jira Automation rules?

We're thinking of test session description templates which reference e.g. a Jira version with its related issues as changeset.


And generally speaking - "Capture for Jira" doesn't seem to be much of a hot topic these days. Can anyone recommend another app/plugin for test session management, from personal experience?

Basically, all we need is a place to create sessions with related info (such as which issues to re-test, or which versions), and maybe some sort of scheduling/time planning layer on top, so that our QA can manage their todo list, and management can make test session prio decisions.

Hi @Jan-Hendrik Spieth 

unfortunately I‘m not that familiar with Zephyr and/or Capture.

What exactly does „test session“? What is a test session?

From a test management perspective I personally use xray. I‘m pretty sastisfied and it also offers great coverage functionality, execution results, traceability matrix and API.

Which brings me to your question:

I‘m afraid Automation 4 Jira doesn‘t offer actions for other apps/plugins - at least not natively. I would recommend to check if your app provides an API. You could then send webrequests to this api from an automation rule in jira.


Thanks @Stefan Salzl! It just so happens that we're trying out XRay :-) So I'll take a look at the XRay API.
