We are already using Bonfire and are considering using Zephyr for a test case manager. I know that Zephyr allows you to create new test cases through Bonfire but if we would rather use Bonfire to report bugs (it just keeps the testers from having to do a lot of context switching if they can report everything within the browser) is there a way through Bonfire to associate Bonfire bugs with a Zephyr test case?
This doesn't appear to be possible at the moment, if my instalation of Bonfire is correct.
I looked at a default setup of Bonfire and don't see the JIRA "Link" function available.
Thus while in JIRA, you can link a Bonfire-created bug to a Zephyr testcase with the Link function, as they are both native issue types in JIRA. However the UI of Bonfire doesn't appear to offer this JIRA Link function.
I am from the Zephyr side, and can offer full expertise in Zephyr for JIRA. You may need to Bonfire expert to confirm whether or not you can use the JIRA "link" functionality in Bonfire.
Thanks Chris. We'll continue to investigate. The main reason for us to go with bonfire is the ability to create templates and to avoid a lot of context switching in the testing. Our testers that have used it really like it so the degree that the two might be stepping on each others toes concerns me a little. But we do need a test manager that will integrate nicely with jira so we'll continue to investigate further.
You can use Zephyr within a Bonfire test session right?
Check out our documentation regarding how you can use Bonfire to Create Tests for Zephyr for JIRA.
Bonfire 2.6 has just been released, which includes support for the JIRA's issue link field when creating an issue. You could use this field to link the bug to the Zephyr test case during creation, as long as the field is configured to appear in JIRA's screen settings.
