Linked Jira Issues in Reports: Know more!

Useful when:

  • You are using aqua and Jira and want to create a comprehensive report for your stakeholders to provide update on the project's status

  • You need to see Jira issues in the reports after test runs are done for the audit purposes

Guide: Navigate to the ‘Reports’ page and either select the report you want to modify or create a new one.

Then, at the ‘Edit properties’ step, select when you want the Jira issue to be loaded

Go back to the layout step, navigate to the following group, and add the label to your layout.

You can also reference a link to the Jira issue. To do so, click on the added label and once the expression sidebar opens, click on the 3-dot menu next to the ‘Navigation URL’ field.

Add your base Jira URL to the issues, with apostrophes before and after the URL. Then, add plus and navigate to the ‘Fields’ section, expand 'RelatedJiraIssues’ and doubleclick on ‘TargetId’, and save the report.

Once you generate the report, there will be a link to the Jira issue that is linked with your aqua test case or any other item you referenced in the report.

If you want to include multiple Jira issues, click on the ‘DetailReport [itemtype] section when creating the report.

On the ‘Properties’ sidebar under the ‘Actions’ group, click on the ‘Report Band’.

Once you do that, the new block will be added to the layout.

For ‘Data Source’, select the ‘Data’ property; for ‘Data Member’, select the ‘Related Jira issues‘ property.

Now, select ‘DetailReport1’ and drag and drop e.g. table to the page.

Leave as many cells as you need, then go the Field list’, select 'Report Data' -> 'TestCaseReport' -> 'TestCases' -> 'RelatedJiraIssues' and then drag and drop to the cell ‘TargetId’

Save your report and once you generate it, all linked Jira issues will be included into your report.

New Integrations Page Look and Feel – Your Integration Superpower!

Useful when:

  • You want to have an overview, which project has an integration

  • You want to see if there is a connection to Jira to make sure that integration is successful

  • You are looking forward to new integrations and want to provide some feedback

Guide:

Open the 'Integrations' page, and you'll land on the 'Global' tab. Here, you can set up a single integration that applies to all the projects you have in aqua.

Choose the integration, such as Jira, and then click the 'Configure' button.

Enter all the necessary details and click 'Check connection.' If all your credentials are correct, you'll see the following message:

If your credentials are incorrect, you'll encounter the following message:

To finish the integration set up, don’t forget to click the ‘Save’ button.

You can also set up the integration on a project level, either from the main Integrations page or within the project settings.

Once you've created an integration on a project level, you'll find a tile under the project tab that displays the added integration and which project it's associated with.

It's important to note that project-level configuration takes precedence over the global configuration.

Additionally, moving forward, if your project is put on hold, or you need to make adjustments, there's no need to remove the integration entirely. You can simply disable it and re-enable it as needed.

This means that users won't have the ability to preview or link issues or tickets to aqua projects while it’s disabled, but everything becomes available again as soon as the integration is re-enabled.

We also added the page with aqua apps that you can download and utilise for free. Learn more here about Capture and here about the Jira plugin if you haven’t used it yet.

Got a wish-list of integrations you'd love to see? We're all ears! Access the survey from the ‘Integrations’ page and tell us what you're dreaming of.

Test Execution: Your Choice, Your Pace

Useful when:

  • You want to resume an incomplete test and pick up right where you left off, ensuring that the effort already invested in the test is not wasted

  • You want to ensure that there are no unfinished text executions and user don’t populate unnecessary runs

Guide:

From now on, aqua will automatically prompt you once there is a previous unfinished test execution.

Just press the ‘New Run’ button and you’ll see the pop-up. Select ‘Continue’ if you want to resume the previous run. In case you want to start a new one, just click ‘New run’

Please note: aqua will show you this pop up only if the last test execution is not completed. It won’t be shown in case you have old recorded uncompleted test executions.

The ticket will open in the same tab without populating separate tabs.

In case you need to go back, just click the ‘Back to main’ button, and you’ll get back to the ‘Navigation’ page.

When you need to open multiple items, just click on the item and click on the ‘Open in a new tab’ option in the context menu.

Drag and Drop Columns: Effortless Navigation Tweaks

  • You want to easily add the column to the exact place to the item grid

Guide:

Whenever you need to drag and drop a new column to the grid, you can use the Alt+Shift+C shortcut. The column chooser will appear, and you can drag and drop items to the exact place on the grid.

Alternatively, you can easily see the whole list of the columns by enabling the ‘View’ sidebar and then clicking the ‘Add column’ button. The same column chooser will appear, allowing you to select data you want to display.
