It’s about to get even easier to integrate uTest into your JIRA workflows. For our Functional Testing customers, uTest connects with many of today’s popular bug tracking systems. With JIRA, we also have an available plugin, which allows for two-way communication between the uTest platform and your JIRA system, closing the loop between uTest and your engineering teams.
As uTest community members test your application, this plugin facilitates transferring approved bug reports to your JIRA database. It also makes it easy to map data within uTest to the correct JIRA projects and fields, ensuring your developers receive bug reports that adhere to your reporting standards.
Additionally, this plugin supports Bug Fix Verification using the uTest platform. After a developer has fixed a bug, a JIRA owner can resubmit that bug to uTest for fix verification. A member of the uTest community will then attempt to reproduce the original bug on the updated software, reporting back whether or not it was actually fixed. Bug Fix Verification is included as part of all Functional Testing subscriptions.
We’re excited to announce, the JIRA plugin for uTest now supports JIRA 6 for both on-demand and on-premise installations. We’re putting the plugin through some final polish and QA and it should be available within the Atlassian Marketplace soon. If you are a current uTest customer and require immediate access to the plugin, please contact your Project Manager.
In addition to support for JIRA 6, the new plugin now brings the ability to bulk resolve bugs between uTest and JIRA as well as directly upload a new build for bug fix verification directly through JIRA.
If you have any questions about the JIRA plugin please don’t hesitate to contact us.
