create a new test case field, then update it with test values

We are creating an automated testing prototype using jira 6.2, zephyr 2.2 and zapi 1.0 on an evaluation jira instance.

This is what I have working:

1- create a project, version and test case on jira. When creating the test case I used the admin drop down to add some additional fields specific to our testing.

2 use zapi to create a test cycle and add that test case to the newly created test cycle

3 - reading test results and use zapi execute to update the test case using the execution id - PASS/FAIL

4 - I would now like to use zapi to update the additional fields that were created during step 1. I have used the zapi/latest/execution/{id}/execution api. I am getting a HTTP 200 OK, response, but I do not see the values getting updated on the test case screen. Is the the correct way to update fields, or is there another approach?


url= baseURL + '/rest/zapi/latest/execution/' + execId + '/execute'

request = Request(url, data=values, headers=headers)

request.get_method = lambda: 'PUT'

resp = urlopen(request).read()

The JSON data looks like this -

JSON RESULTS {"status": "1", "skipped": "0", "passed": "9", "finished-at": "2014-03-24T22:14:53Z", "testname": "Gradle", "failed": "0", "duration-ms": "44", "startsat": "2014-03-24T22:14:52Z", "testtotal": "9", "Description": "description ongoing for now"}

Hi Jan,

Fields in the base Test issue will need to be updated using JIRA's REST API. ZAPI Only deals with Zephyr for JIRA-specific entities such as Test Steps, Cycles, and Executions. Basic fields in the test issue do not fall under this umbrella.

The URI you are using 'zapi/latest/execution/{id}/execution' is only used to update the execution of a single sheduled execution in a cycle.

The JIRA REST API for updating an issue is:

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
