Record test footprints straight from JIRA

When JIRA is used as a test case management solution, it's cumbersome to switch back and forth between JIRA and the Recorder to start and stop each test. The plugin allows to automatically start and stop the footprints recording on the Recorder directly from JIRA.

The plugin offers two post functions that can be executed anytime in a workflow:

  • Start Test on Recorder
    This function starts a new test on the Recorder using the issue key as code and the issue summary as label.
  • Stop Test on Recorder
    This function stops the test on the Recorder. This function takes a parameter, the test status: Success, Failure, Cancelled.

The plugin also provides a condition to check if the Recorder is available.

Customize your workflow

To add the post functions to one of your workflow, you can follow the procedure: Adding a post function

To add the condition to one of your workflow, you can follow the procedure: Adding a condition

Best practice


We highly recommend that you add the condition Check Recorder Status Condition each time you add one of the plugin post function to a transition.
