Test Repository

With Test Repository, you can easily organize tests in each Jira project and build a custom structure that suits your needs best. Create new folders, add tests to them and manage these tests directly from the repository.

The Test Repository is accessible from the project sidebar. It’s view consists of two parts:

  • Tree folder view
  • Folder content view
Test Repository folder tree

  2. All folder contains all Test Case Templates from a particular project. From this folder, you can start to organize your tests and add Test Case Templates to created folders. Select Test Case Templates from the list and drag & drop into the destination folder.
  3. Search folder bar helps you find the desired folder. Type the phrase you want to find and click Enter or the magnifier icon. The results will be highlighted in the folder tree.
