Post-Functions

Use the following post-functions to automate your work with TestFLO issues.

TestFLO - Next Test Plan Iteration

This post-function allows to automatically create the Next Iteration of Test Plan after performing a given workflow transition. Together with the new iteration, all Test Cases execution statuses, linked defects and step comments will be reset. This will allow you to test again chosen Test Cases in the new iteration. All previous Test Case executions are available in the Test Executions tab on Test Case and all previous Test Plan iterations are available in the Test Plan Iterations tab on Test Plan.

  1. Go to the Jira Administration > Issues > Workflows.

  • Test Plan in the Test information panel in the Action section under Snapshots (preview of the last snapshot) and the Activity panel under the Test Snapshots tab (all snapshots),
  • Test Case and Test Case Template in the Activity panel under the Test Snapshots tab (all snapshots).
Note

You can configure this post-function for other issue types in Jira. The configuration will be the same as for the Test Case or Test Case Template workflow.
