Link a defect to step result using ZAPI



Please let me know how to update the step result in ZEPHYR/JIRA using ZAPI with a defect.

Basically the test has failed and I have raised a defect in JIRA for the same. I want to link that defect to the step result. How do I do it using ZAPI? The Update Step Result ZAPI api doesn't seem to accept defects. I always end up getting a HTTP 500. If it is possible to update defects using the UpdateStepResult REST ZAPI then please let me know in what format for I provide the request in. Else let me know how to achieve it using ZAPI


Thank you,

Hi Tejaswini

Thanks for your interest in Zephyr.Unfortunately there is no functionality in ZAPI of linking defects to a step result and UpdateStepResult REST API doesnt help in doing so,

At the moment we can raise a feature request with our product team for them to consider it in future releases.

Let me know if you have any queries about the above mentioned


Zephyr Support

Is this feature added or available in any new version ?
