Can I use wiki markup and reference other issues in test step text fields?


There was already question about making test step text fields bigger (also interested in that btw). My questions relate to the same topic:

1. Is it somehow possible to use wiki markup in test step fields? I quickly tried it but simple styling (bolding, underlining) did not work.

2. How about referencing other Jira issues by their ID? Tried this as well but didn't seem to work.

I would also like to use markup (and possibly reference issues) in test execution's comment field and individual step's comment field.


PS. I'm Evaluating Zephyr for JIRA for my company and so far it seems quite suitable for our test case management needs. :)

I'm interested by those features too.

For zephyr it's price, it should be fully compliant with Jira, using same wiki and issue references. All fields should also be searchable. Those are all basic userfriendly usage.

Agreed, for #1 - the functionality is there already in Jira. We'd like this feature.
