Adding JIRA-support fields to TestArchitect

Registered TA bugs, by default, have the fields Summary, Description, Source and Status, all of which can be kept in sync with the associated JIRA bug. User-defined fields can be created in TestArchitect to accept values from other fields of a JIRA bug.

To ensure synchronization between a JIRA field and its corresponding TestArchitect user-defined field, ensure that the field's names on both JIRA and TestArchitect are identical.

Note:
  • At present, TestArchitect-JIRA integration supports versions 5 and 6 of JIRA.

To have user-defined fields in TA bugs that can accept values from JIRA, repeat the following steps for each field you wish to create:

  1. In TestArchitect, create a user-defined field in TestArchitect with the following properties:
    • Name: Be sure to enter a name which is identical to the existing JIRA field, for example Affects Build.
    • Applied To: Select Bug entity.
    • Value Type: Select Single line text or Multi line text.
  2. Create a registered bug. Note that the new field appears in it.
The TestArchitect user-defined field loads additional value from JIRA field, as depicted below:
