My team is looking to leverage JIRA for test case management (http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFEVAL/Using+JIRA+for+Test+Case+Management). We've customized JIRA as documented now the question comes down to - how do we integrate our automated testing with JIRA?
We currently use TestLink to manage testing, but want to create a single platform through which to create and monitor test runs, execution, and defects created from said actions.
Also, we use Selenium to automate a significant number of our browser-based tests. Without installing/using another tool, can we form interactions with Selenium in JIRA itself? We know that Selenium can be integrated into Bamboo, but our larger organization is slow in effecting Bamboo adoption with our architects.
In the meantime, our team needs to continue on its aggressive combination of manual/automated testing. Any thoughts/directions other than adoption of Zephyr or other standalone tools?
About Selenium it depends mostly on how you execute those tests. If you use selenium libraries in any programming language (C#, Java, Python) you can do lots of stuff - decorate your tests with test id attribute, have XML config or whatever and then report back to Jira using REST api.
We just added a new plugin for JIRA two way synchronization. For more details look here:

To clarify Zephyr's product offerings, there is Zephyr Enterprise which is the stand alone platform and has a tight, real-time integration with JIRA for defect management but there is also the new "Zephyr for JIRA" which is a test management add-on to JIRA5 and allows you to manage your testing inside JIRA. Here are the plugin links for both ...

Zephyr for JIRA5 add-on: https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugins/com.thed.zephyr.je
We have successfully transitioned all of our manual browser- and emulator-based testing to JIRA (out of TestLink). We don't yet have a solution for our Selenium scripts. We are looking to evaluate Zephyr when it becomes available for OnDemand. In the meantime, we are manually executing and reporting our Selenium scripts' success/failure (not ideal).
I'd like to spend more time building up a custom solution (as proposed by Swiniak above) through leveraging JIRA's REST services, but have not been able to do so while rolling out JIRA to replace our product, project, and dev workflow suites.
Out of curiosity - how do you manage your test cases execution now in Jira?
I'm wondering if you could make a simple test reporting by using jira command line interface ( https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/display/JCLI/JIRA+Command+Line+Interface ). If your test cases are jira issues you could probably update them with some comments/labels/custom field using CLI directly from your automated test - should not require that much effort as writing your own REST client :)
Its good to know that you have adopted Jira completely. I have a couple of questions and insight from you would really help me use Jira better.
1. Do you use Greenhopper?
2. Did you customize Jira manually http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFEVAL/Customise+JIRA+For+Test+Case+Management or or did you import the sample test files http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFEVAL/JIRA+Sample+File+-+Test+Case+Management?
3. How do you handle the test runs? Do you clone/copy the test cases or any other way?
I just customised JIRA OnDemand manually but the instructions are for an earlier version of JIRA. JIRA has changed a lot since then but I have managed to complete the configuration. Using the configuration is not as easy to understand and I still don't have my head around how to implement test cycles. Anyone have any more to add for help?
We are using JIRA OnDemand (JIRA Studio) for Project & Issue management. I want to know following things:
Our purpose is to achieve test management with JIRA Studio.

Zephyr for JIRA is a testcase management option inside JIRA 5.2 for On-Premise Installations. This is one option for you. Check it out here: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.thed.zephyr.je
I was wondering if you could give us some feedback about your test management installation with JIRA?
* Could you manage to use a custom solution?
if so do you have a way to call Selenium scripts and get the results back into JIRA?
And as Allmas asked, how do you handle the test runs? Do you clone/copy the test cases?
* Or did you end up getting Zephyr for JIRA5 as you planned?
But as far I can tell, this require more customization as only Zephyr Community and Enterprise Editions have easier to use tools for automation.
It's officially Tuesday, which means it's officially time for another tip to help you better navigate this space we call the Atlassian Community. 😄 I got a great question from community member, Sa...
