Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 622415
[REF] integration to TCMS
Last modified: 2014-10-12 18:46:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Is there any plan to have integration done also in Bugzilla?
I mean automatic linking from BZ -> TCMS, when bug is assigned to TCMS test case
This would probably require:
- new bugzilla field created - visible to RH employees only
- test case link(s), if present, will be displayed in bug report
It would be really neat feature, saving time and typos when manually editing BZ fields (QA Whiteboard).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
+1 proposing to denominate the field: Test Case (cf_testcase)
Ideally if just test cases numbers in field are editable and TCMS links are generated from it.
TCMS/Nitrate would periodically:
1. query BZ for updated bugs to save Bug->TCMS relation to its database
2. the other way around - update bug records with new test case numbers
Consistent [Bug,TestCase] data should be then present in both databases.

instead of using a new custom field, we can utilize the External Trackers table and just have a link created their to the TCMS case or test run. Future support will be in Bugzilla to get status from TCMS and also to send changes to bug reports to TCMS as long as the links exist in the External Tracker table. For simple linking as a place holder, we can do that now with current Bugzilla.
Thanks for quick reply/. External Bugs table sounds like good short term solution.
We definitely need "TCMS test case" option there.
Using "TCMS test case run" is also a worth adding, but mostly we want to see:
- link to all test case runs, where test case failed
- link to all test case runs, where test case passed
- link to all test case runs in progress
I am not sure if future of TCMS<->BZ integration should include these links in BZ interface or of it is unnecessary overhead. Probably better if these links are just available from test case summary in TCMS.
[We could probably merge this with bug 596770].
