Integrating with Jira (via REST API)

During test case executions, it is very useful if the results are updated to a project management tool like Jira. Jira integration is primarily used to raise a bug if any of the test cases fails while executing in Provar. This automation removes manual tasks as much as possible.

In short, Provar’s integration with Jira allows you to capture and track the results of Provar test cases easily and to submit the incident tickets directly in Jira. Provar integrates with Jira using the Jira REST endpoints. This is done by using the web services available in Provar.

Steps for integrating Jira (via REST API) in Provar

Step 1: Add a Jira connection.

Select Generic Web Service from the Connection Type drop-down menu to add a Jira connection.

Step 2: Add an authentication.

In the URL field, enter the Jira base URL. Select Authentication Type from the drop-down menu.

Step 3: Test the connection.

Click Test Connection to check if the connection is successful.

Step 4: Use the Jira connector in your test case. 

To use the Jira connection in your test case, use Web Connect and Web Request (REST) test step types from the Test Palette.

Step 5: Pass the Jira connection in the Web Connect step.

Step 6: Configure the Web Request (REST) test step.

In this example, we are creating a ticket in Jira when a Provar test case fails during execution. Please refer to the Atlassian documentation for more information.

If the integration is successful, the following screenshot provides an example of a Jira response in Provar.

Note: You can make use of a Jira plugin in Provar to monitor, add and update Jira from Provar. For more information about using a Jira plugin, please refer to Jira Plugin in Provar.
