    Use Case Examples Of Kovair Integration With Jira Test Management

    To understand how Kovair integration with JIRA Test Management works, let us consider an integration scenario with tools JIRA Test Management, Kovair Omnibus, and Kovair Application.

    1. In JIRA, Test Cycle is a collection of Test Cases. Let us suppose that a user proceeds to execute a Test Case from JIRA Test Management tool.
    2. Upon execution of each Test Case in a Test Cycle, a Test Run record will be generated. For every Test Run, a Run Step event will be generated depending on the number of steps present in a Test Case.  
    3. A complete traceability of these records and results can be viewed directly from Kovair Application.
    4. Kovair Omnibus works behind the scene and runs on an Engine Service. Based on the adapters registered, the mapping, and the service flow set, all details of the source tool and the target tool, along with the mapping details are stored inside Kovair Database. Whenever a record is triggered from the source tool, the service engine searches for the target tool details inside the Kovair Database and the fields against which the action is to be triggered in the target tool.
    5. Now assuming that a Test Case upon execution in the JIRA Test Management tool fails. In that case, using JIRA Issue type, a bug can be created and linked with the Test Case, which can be viewed from JIRA Test Management under the Traceability Tab.
    6. Users of Kovair application can get a complete traceability view of the events triggered by the target tool and the actions pushed to the target tool.

    Note: The adapter as developed and offered by Kovair follows the subject tool’s standard specifications. Any deviations from the Tool’s typical use pattern may not have been anticipated in our off-the-shelf product.
