  1. Click the Submit button on the qTest Explorer Editor's toolbar.

  2. The message dialog below is displayed if the default connection in the Settings form has some missing information.

    Click OK to configure the connection.

    Click the Save button to save the current connection info for subsequent usage.

    Refer to the Configure Tracker Settings section for detailed information on integration setup.

  3. If the connection has been set up successfully, the Submit to JIRA form is displayed. Click on the radio box Create new defect to see a list of fields required to submit a new defect to JIRA. You need to select, then enter the following information:

    • Title of the defect
    • Description of the defect

    The "Project" field is a foundation field that drives the rest of the fields on the submission form. The foundation field is unlikely to change and its selection is automatically saved for subsequent use. Other fields are non-foundation fields and are configurable in Fields Settings form. You can also choose to display additional fields and set the default value for these non-foundation fields in the Fields Settings form. Refer to Fields Settings for details.

    You can also add more files to the tracker or embed existing files as links only on the defect description section. Refer to Attachments for details

    If you select the Connection Type as JIRA Native, then the JIRA Native Submission Form would be displayed instead of the custom form above. Information such as description and steps will be populated automatically within the Native form

  4. Specify all other fields (if required) and then click Submit button to proceed.

  5. You will see a confirmation message when the upload is complete.
