      Description

      one of the important tools in the eco-center of software development and issue tracking is test case management.

      Tools such as TestLink, TestMaster, Mercury TestDirector provide a database with the relevant functionality.

      Integration to the issue tracker provides a link between tests and the issues they created, are blocked on, etc.

      JIRA should have a generic integration to such tools, and specific easy integration to 1 or 2 leading tools.

      Best would be if JIRA can provide such a database on its own. Its not a rocket science field, and integrated support can be very interesting.

      see http://rndmgmttrenches.blogspot.com/2005/08/building-test-case-management-solution.html for my take on the issue.

            sounds ok

            custom field is better for all of those in order to enable reports like
            "features/bugs without tests" or "tests that need to be rerun due to a
            certain release"

            The problem is when a test case is not in issue in JIRA as assumed above...
            If its in JIRA all of it will be easier, but then the relationships are much
            more complicated and not really supported out of the box by an Issue Tracker
            data model.

            It is then possible to build custom workflow conditions to e.g. restrict

            In general, the links are the easy part of the equation.
            The problem is when you need more information about the other side than the
            simple ID or existence. (e.g. whether a test case succeeded...)

            Building all of these as a single plugin for JIRA would be very cool indeed.

            I'll continue to think about this...

            Thanks,

            I think it is a very important feature. I need it.
            esp. a plugin linking to HP Quality Center is very good.

            There is a confluence page that discusses the integration of various test case management tools with JIRA.
