Jira and Continuous Integration within Plutora Test
Continuous Integration emphasizes test execution early and often, providing rapid feedback to development teams for each new code commit. Test tools often lack the automation required for effective shift-left testing, which means developers lose valuable time waiting on test results and failure details. As release velocity increases and complexity grows, there is no longer time for manual correlation of fast-moving development and test activities.
Plutora Test tightly integrates test plans with Jira defects and user stories. Whether your Jira implementation is on-premises or in the cloud, Plutora Test creates a bi-directional sync to keep development and test tools automatically aligned. Teams continue to use their specialized tools, but are no longer siloed.
- Produce quality code faster with automated sync of dev and test tools
- Ensure proper test coverage of user stories
- Establish traceability between test cases, defects, and requirements
“I see Plutora as the glue that holds the delivery process together, communicating with project managers, development teams, test teams, infrastructure teams, and stakeholders.”

Visibility and Automation using Jira Integration
Automatically create Jira defects
With a link established between Plutora Test and Jira, testers automatically create Jira bugs as issues are uncovered. Fault details from new or existing defects are pushed to Jira for developer insight and reproduction. Developers identify quality trends with new code commits and keep Jira as their tool of choice.
Bi-directional sync of dev and test data
Updated or newly created records such as projects or requirements in Jira are synced by date or pushed to Plutora Test in a customizable cadence, keeping product management, development, and test aligned. Plutora Test receives automated updates of completions as developers close out Jira defects.
Establish traceability of test cases and defects back to original requirements
Requirements and user stories are typically broken down into multiple development tasks for execution and testing, making it difficult for business teams to assess project status in Agile environments.
Plutora Test bridges this communication gap with Jira requirements integration. Traceability is established between user stories, related test cases, and known defects to provide all stakeholders valuable insight into validation efforts.
Ensure proper test coverage of user stories
Intuitive charts in Plutora Test help business teams and domain experts evaluate test coverage for each user story and understand quality trends for improved risk assessment. Without disrupting dev or test teams, real-time reports summarize test status such as passed, failed, blocked, or descoped.
