Kovair Jira Adapter

The Kovair Omnibus Adapter for JIRA provides full scope collaboration between product management and development teams. When each team can use the tool, they are most comfortable with, greater efficiency and productivity results. Kovair Omnibus JIRA adapter supports the bidirectional flow of data between JIRA and other tools. It supports system and custom entities, attributes, and lookups of JIRA. The adapter supports the latest Jira Cloud as well as on-premise.

The integration with JIRA and other Product management tools provides real-time visibility into development progress for the required top-level requirements, moreover, product teams will be able to link all user stories, task and test cases associated with the top-level requirement. This ensures that all collaborators can see the same data in the ecosystem, irrespective of what application they use.

Why Integrate Jira with Kovair?

Enhanced Collaboration – Defect Management involves recognizing, reporting, investigating, and resolving defects by the same team. While identifying and reporting defects are the responsibilities of Testers, defect analysis, investigation, and resolution are the concerns of Developers. The integration provides undiluted data across the team. Bi-directional synchronization, aggregated comments, and inter-relationships ensure that all issues are up-to-date, consolidated and easily viewable for better decision making and service delivery.

Traceability – Kovair Omnibus’s central framework, in collaboration with Kovair JIRA Integration adapter, allows creation and management of traceability relationships between JIRA Issues and other artifacts from other tools. Maintaining traceability from requirements to defects reflects the stability of requirements and their implementation status.

Increase Team Productivity – Create/ Update Jira Items from connected tools and vice-versa without leaving the platform you use the most. Decrease unproductive context-switching, reduce manual jobs, remove complexity and thus improve productivity.

Use Case Example – Integration between Jira and Micro Focus ALM

Kovair Omnibus Jira integration along with Omnibus allows creation and management of business rules through a user-friendly Web interface — zero code deployment, for example, business rules can be defined so that a Bugs is automatically added in JIRA when a Test case is failed in Microfocus ALM. Moreover, Defect Management process can be defined so that when a defect is added in JIRA, it follows the workflow defined in the Defect Management process, without any manual intervention. However, when bugs are closed in Jira the status flows back Microfocus ALM. Therefore, two teams can work in two separate tools but will make decision seeing the same piece of data.
