    1. testPlanKey - contains the issue key of Test Plan from which job is being run.
    2. targetIteration - tells whether to add Test Cases to current iteration in Test Plan or to create new. You can provide default value using these options:
      • CURRENT_ITERATION
      • NEW_ITERATION
    3. testCaseCreationStrategy - tells whether new Test Cases should be created with test results, or only limited to updating existing Test Cases in Test Plan. You can define a default value, using these options:

        Note
        The given job must contain tests of the type indicated in this option only.
    5. Test results files - path where test results are stored. From this place the plugin gets the test results to send them to Jira.
    6. Missing Test Plan key parameter behavior - when the job doesn’t receive the Test Plan issue key from Jira, it can either skip this task or fail it.
  8. To verify the task configuration, you can use the Test connection button.

  9. Click Save.

Result

You have saved the configuration. Now you can run your tests from the Test Plan using the Run automated tests operation.
