We are currently trialling the Zephyr plugin within our test team.
We would like to be able to use Zephyr fields to extract reports in JIRA.
Fields like Execution Date, Cycle, Execution Status: Pass/Fail, Test Steps cannot be used to create filters in JIRA.
Kindly refer to the attached screen shot.
We should be able to use these fields to configure columns while displaying search results in JIRA or creating a filter
Thanks for the feedback. Currently this exact feature set isn't available, and would require Zephyr and Atlassian to work together to make it happen.
The Zephyr for JIRA plugin is an Add-On to JIRA. And all Add-Ons to JIRA sit in specific spaces within JIRA that they are allowed to work within. They aren't allowed to change any native JIRA functionality.
The lack of ability to search via issue navigator in JIRA for info on Zephyr test cases is a major pain in the seating area! I have added comments on this to a couple of questions/answers in Atlassian Answers and read many more and the answers have been: "this isn't available but we will consider it ....". I have just raised a related issue via Atlassian support and they palmed it off to Zephyr - haven't had a response from Zephyr yet (just raised today). Chris's answer above is revealing. It is neither a Zephyr nor an Atlassian issue exclusively but would need them to work together. Any chance of that happening? I don't suppose Atlassian see this as criticla to their sales. From what I have read, there are some disgruntled purchasers of Zephyr out there ... and Atlassian take note, some of whom only purchased JIRA as opposed to others because it gives a built-in test case tool. Reading comments like this may potentially affect the sales of both of your products so get your act together!
By the way, I have got so fed up with this that I have investigated the structure of the JIRA databases and specifically the tables added via the Zephyr plugin. While I am no SQL expert, I have managed to put together some scripts that pull out most of the info you might want re test cases. if anyone wants me to email them I can do so. But you would have to bear in mind (a) they are a work in progress and (b) there is DEFINITELY no support or consultancy.
I would also like to see those scripts as I want to write some reports for display in confluence that go across JIRA, GreenHopper and Zephyr -- email@example.com
I have some but I'm particularly interested in
a) Output of hyperlink content
b) Output of test steps into a table similar to the one extracted to excel
Hi, can you advise if any of these will be in the next release, and if not, if and when they can be introduced, as they are big areas of concern for my company:
Thanks very much.
Since the inception of this question, we have introduced the ZQL functionality to Zephyr for JIRA. This acts similar to JQL in that a user builds queries to view specific information in JIRA. With ZQL, you can generate a list of test executions that can then be exported from the ZQL page like in JIRA's JQL page.
We hope this satisfies some of the needs out community has requested but please do keep the feedback coming!
It started as any story starts, on a normal, rainy day. Admin meets App, and her name was Klok2, and like any first relationship we were both trying to make it work but neither one knew what...
