Zephyr test status VS JIRA issue status

I executed a test in Zephyr, but the issue status still was 'unresolved'. If I want to search all unresolved issues, I have to exclude Zephyr test issues.

How to make issue status as 'resolved' after a test was completed?

Hi Weijing,

Since an issue type Test is a standard JIRA issue type, the same rulesshould apply for it as a Bug, Task, Etc. You will need to add the issue type Test to your workflow and allow users to change the Test to closed/resolved as you do with other issue types. It is important to note that changing an issue type (any issue type including issue type Test) to Closed, or Fixed, or any JIRA resolution type is a JIRA feature. We in Zephyr for JIRA have no play in this. Because of this, if you are not sure how to allow an issue type to follow your current workflow, you will want to reach out to your JIRA admin or Atlassian, They will be able to assist you with your JIRA workflows and show you how to incorporate additional issue types into it.

Kind Regards,


My understanding is that a Test item is a test case and as such it should be marked finished once reviewed. However test executions are instances of a test case being executed in a test cycle. Its a bit confusing and I would welcome any suggestions.
