Zephyr for Jira: Inserting a test step between existing test steps


We've just started using Zephyr in Jira 6.1 and are finding it to be a cool product - really nice to have proper test management all under the Jira roof.

Just wondering if it was possible, when creating/editing tests, to 'insert' new test steps in between existing steps? I couldn't see a way to do it other than creating a new step at the bottom of the current list of steps and then moving it up with the drag functionality (which is OK but becomes a pain when your test starts to get quite big). A 'Move to top' and 'Move to bottom' option might also be useful for step manipulation.

many thanks,

Hi Neil,

You are completely accurate with what the tool is able to accomplish up to date. Your feedback has been sent to our product team for consideration.

Kind Regards


Thanks Chris - much appreciated.

Hi Neil,

Has this feature available now? thanks!

Kind Regards,

Hi Jane,

I have no idea I'm afraid. Unfortunately we gave up with Zephyr a while back. It wasn't quite what we wanted in the end.



Hi Neil,

Currently we are in process of evaluating Zephyr for test management. From your post, I could see that you used Zephyr for quite some times and then gave up. Can you please help me understand the reasons as it would help us with our evaluation.

Also can you tell me which plugin you are currently using with JIRA.



Is there any progress on implementing this VERY BASIC functionality?

It has been annoying me no end as I am constantly dragging steps around and it is ridiculous.

Can we have an update or a link to an improvement request that can be tracked?
