I read the article https://www.inflectra.com/Company/Article/437.aspx about the New Spira - Jira plugin with the new function of synchronizing requerments.
The IT section at my firm say that the Version 4.0.0 is Version they already have installed. so is the announced plugin in the article Version 4.0.0.? Or is this not the updated one?
We have the possibility to use custom Field 04 to get requirments synced, but they all sync as the same type: "Feature". We use different types of requirments, so a Use Story and a Use Case is synced as "Feature". Do we have to make changes to a xml file.? Or is there a easyer way.. Ive testet around with the Edit Standard Field Data Mapping, and put the right keys there, but the same keys are used in customfield 04.
Some bad explaining on my side..
In the download section on inflectra site, there is a plugin for jira-spira integration. The version states: 4.0.0.
In the article inflectra posted 27 feb, it stated that the jira-spira plugin was been updated, with new functionality like syncing requerments from jira to spira.
The manager at my firm said that we already had the 4.0.0 version of the jira-spira plugin (we got it last year). So the question is: do we maybe have a beta version of 4.0.0 or isn't the 4.0.0 on the inflectra download site updated (like the article stated)?
We have tried the Custom 4 field to sync requirements from Jira to spira, it is syncing but, they all get the same type "Feature" in Spira, regardless of the type it had in Jira.So we tired to use the Custom 4 field with multiple values, like 18 (User Stories) and 8 (Use Cases). But they all get changed to "Feature".
We also been in the "Edit Standard Field Data Mapping" under Artifact Type "Requirement" and Type and tried to use the same values as typen inn at custom 4. (ex. Custom 4 = 18,9) and (ex. Requirement -> Type -> Use Case = 9 and User Story = 18). But when we add the same values from Custom 4 inn edit standard field data mapping, nothing is beeing synced.
Sorry for any confusion. The version of the JIRA plugin on our website is now actually v5.0.
We have updated the website to make this clear.
This new version simply uses the Requirements - Status mapping in the data-synchronization UI, no other configuration changes are needed.
Thanks for the info.
Do you have an example of how we can sync requirments from Jira to Spiratest?
We want to sync the requirments :User Stories and Use Cases from Jira to Spiratest.
The User Stories have in Jira keyID = 18
The Use Cases have in Jira keyID = 9
How do i set this up in Spiratest? The user manual doesnt specify how this is done in a good and understanding way.
The instructions for configuring the requirement type synchronization are in the manual, specifically pages 20-21. Have you seen that?
If you are having trouble getting it to work, please create a Help Desk ticket.
Did some more testing / investigating and found the example 2 that synced the requirments as "FEATURE" regardless of the value in "View Project Mappings -> Requirments -> Type" needs a double sync to set the type correct.The first sync, synchronizes all requirments set by the Custom 04 section, the second time spiratest synchronizes it uses the configurated values from "View Project Mappings -> Requirments -> Type" and sets the correct type.
Why does it need 2 synchronizations to set det correct type from Jira? The Incidents gets the correct type the first time.
Could you please create a Help Desk ticket? We can give you more specific assistance that way.
