Using BDD to test JIRA flows

I was looking for but could not find any previous experience described. Is there any facilitator to apply BDD to test JIRA flows and permissions?

The idea is to describe JIRA configuration requirements in BDD terms: project configuration, security, flows. Thand it would be nice to have the configuration tesded using BDD scripts.

Hi Yu Chem,

I don't really follow you. Could you please clarify the term "BDD" and any particular use case that you would like to achieve ? Do you mean Behaviour-Driven Development ?

Hi,

Thank you for you reply.

BDD: behavior-driven development. Long story short, the concept may be conveniently used to describe business requirements to the system (configuration) and the very same BR desicription file could be used to run a functional test of the system (by 'system' I mean JIRA instance configuration).

Roughtly, something following the lines:

-------

when 'partner agent' creates new ticket
then ticket status is 'new issue'
 and ticket is assigned to 'triage team'
 and ticket is added to SLA monitor

when 'supervisor' assignes ticket to 'support agent'
then ticket status is 'In progress'

when ticket status is 'wating for comment'
and ticket is assigned to 'partner call center' 
then 'partner agent' can add comment on the ticket
or 'partner agent' can set ticket status to 'updated'
-------------

this description can be read by BA and the very same file can be used to validate system funcitonality using an interpreter script like: http://cukes.info/
