TestFLO - Test Management for Jira

Last updated Dec 17, 2019

TestFLO - Linked Issue Keys

The Linked Issue Keys is an advanced custom field that aggregates issue keys of linked issues that have the same link type. In TestFLO it is used to show issue keys of linked defects to the Test Case and Steps in the Defects field (TestFLO - Linked Issue Keys).

Note

The Defects field is not set by default on any screen. TestFLO uses this field to view aggregate issue keys in the Test information panel. If needed you can add this field to screen.

The type of link is automatically set in the configuration as a Defect link type. After create or link defect with given Test Case or Step all defects will be displayed in the Test information panel in the Defects section.

Note

You can use the TestFLO - Linked Issue Keys for any purpose, not just to show the defects. You can add this field like other custom fields in Jira Administration.
