Setting up the Jira/Eyes integration

Eyes allows you to annotate any step in the test with one or more issues, as described in the article Add issue and remark regions to the step images. Eyes also allows you to associate such an issue with a Jira issue. You can either create the Jira issue from within Eyes or you can link an existing Jira issue to an Eyes issue. Linking Eyes and Jira issues is described in the article Using Jira with Eyes.

This article describes how to enable and configure the integration of Jira with Eyes. This must be done by a user with Team admin rights. Once the required information is performed, you will see the option to create and link to a Jira issue in the Test editor or Step editor Create issue dialog.

To set up Jira integration with Eyes, you need to provide three pieces of information:

  • The Jira Server URL of your Jira project
  • The ID of your Jira project
  • The ID of the Jira issue type you want Eyes to report

If you do not have these values, then you need to obtain them from the Atlassian site. You might find this link in the Atlassian site helpful: How to get project id from the Jira User Interface.
