JIRA and External Defects

When there is defect data displayed in qTest Insights, the charts and columns are appended with either (qTest) or (Linked)
  • The qTest label indicates that you are using the Defects Tab in qTest and the defects are stored internally. 
  • The Linked label indicates that you are using an external defect tracker such as JIRA, VersionOne or CA Agile Central (Rally). 
    Note: To view unlinked Jira Defects, which are which are defects created directly in a Jira project and are not associated with a qTest Manager Test Run, even though the Jira project is integrated with a qTest Manager project. The available filter fields are as follows:
    • Unlinked Defect
    • Jira Project
    • Jira Issue Type

    Important: You will need to configure Manager to accept unlinked Jira defects. Those instructions can be found here.

Most of the reports contain either (qTest) or (Linked) defects or both.  qTest Insights will only display columns in this view if there is data in the column. 
  • For the Defects charts that appear in the upper right of the Quality and Velocity Analysis reports, the chart with the most data will be shown
    • For example: according to the current filters there are more (qTest) defects than (Linked), then the (qTest) version of the chart should be shown.
From tables and charts, the (qTest) data will drill-down into (qTest) defects data section, and the (Linked) data will drill-down to (Linked)
Open Linked Defects 
The (Linked) data also supports going to the external system if you click on the Defect ID or Summary.
