9.1.5 Release Notes-May 31,2018 


Store Unlinked Jira Defects in Manager to be Reported in Insights

You can now use Insights to report on Jira Defects that are not linked to a Test Run in qTest Manager. To use this enhancement you will need to enable Jira to provide unlinked Jira defects. You can fetch the data manually or through auto-sync which will then be stored in the Manager database. 

Therefore, 3 new fields are available in the Explore Data> Defects (Linked) report in Insights so you can filter if you would like to see your unlinked Jira Defects. The new Insights fields are as follows:

  • Unlinked Defect
  • Jira Project
  • Jira Issue Type

Note: Unlinked Jira defects will not be shown in Manager in the following areas:

  • Reports
  • Linked Defect Dialog
  • Defect Summary

To enable Jira to provide unlinked defects, do the following:

  1. In qTest Manager, navigate to the qTest project for which you would like to enable Jira to provide unlinked defects.
  2. From the Gear icon drop-down, select Integration Settings.
  3. Select Jira from the External Systems panel on the left side of the screen.
  4. Locate the Jira integration name you would like to provide unlinked defects for, and select the 'wrench' icon in the Action column. The Configure Connection page loads.
  5. In the Defect Integration section, select the "Also populate Jira defects that are not linked to Manager Test Runs" checkbox.
  6. Save and then select the Fetch Jira Defect button.
    Read this article for more information on how to Configure Jira Defects.

Deleting a Jira Bug Now Deletes the Corresponding Synced Defect in Manager

If you delete a bug in Jira, the corresponding synced defect in Manager will also be deleted. Previously, if a Jira defect is deleted, the Manager Test Log would still display the Jira link and count towards defect reporting in Manager and Insights.

API's with Shared Test Cases Modified 

The following API's have been modified to provide you with all of the Test Logs for a Test Run within a shared Test Case. Details follow the API:

  • GET /api/v3/projects/{prjID}/test-runs/{test-runID}/test-logs/last-run: correct the project ID in the associated Test Case's URL and allow users to retrieve fields and values of the Test Case iif the Test Case is shared from another project
  • GET /api/v3/projects/{prjID}/test-runs/{test-runID}/test-logs: correct the project ID in the associated Test Case's URL
  • GET /api/v3/projects/42864/linked-artifacts?type=test-cases&ids=[test-run-ids]: when retrieving associated Test Runs of a Test Case, Test Runs from other projects which were created from the Test Case (if it is or was once shared to the projects) will be included
  • POST /api/v3/projects/42864/search: correct the project ID in the associated Test Case's URL

Ability to Modify a Test Log

You now have the ability to modify a Test log through the following API's:

  • Modify a Manual Test Log: PUT /api/v3/projects/{projectId}/test-runs/{testRunId}/test-logs/{id}
  • Modify an Automation Test Log: PUT /api/v3/projects/{projectId}/test-runs/{testRunId}/auto-test-logs/{id}

To retrieve data of a Test Log before modifying it, you can utilize one of our existing APIs as below:

  • Get all Test Logs of a Test Run: GET /api/v3/projects/{projectId}/test-runs/{testRunId}/test-logs
  • Get the latest Test Log of a Test Run: GET /api/v3/projects/{projectId}/test-runs/{testRunId}/test-logs/last-run
  • Get a Test Log of a Test Run: GET /api/v3/projects/{projectId}/test-runs/{testRunId}/test-logs/{id}

The ability to modify Test Logs in the UI will be released with Manager 9.2.
