    But we are not done…
    2022 just started and we are already releasing another integration improvement feature:

  • Jira Integration improvement - Report a Linked issue field from a PractiTest run
    When reporting an issue directly from a PractiTest run, you will now have the option to choose a linked issue and to choose the relationship between the 2 issues - just like in Jira. This is available only if the Jira project you are reporting to and the issue type you chose contain this field in Jira.
