*If your integration is already configured and you want to learn about the actual usage of the integration, please go here*

The main advantage of this integration option is that it allows you to integrate your Jira Server or Jira DataCenter without any additional installations, and without using any plugins or add-ons.

On the other hand, if you choose to use the no-plugin integration with Jira, PractiTest panels (Linked Results and Linked Tests), that are available for users who are using the integration with PractiTest's plugin, will not be available for you in your integrated Jira tickets.

Note: The two-way integration is supported only under PractiTest’s Enterprise and Unlimited licenses.
