  • An easy way for QA testers to indicate successful completion of testing a fix, using the Tested button to go through workflow from Resolved to Verified. Any branch statuses are set to merge, for example 11 status and 10 status flags indicate a need for a merge to the 11 branch or the 10 branch successfully. Branch managers close the JIRA when all merges are completed.
  • We have a way to set the branch status flag to tested, indicating the fix was tested directly in the branch, after merge.
  • Workflow from Awaiting Review -> Opened -> Resolved -> Verified -> Closed.
  • Easy way for a developer or QA tester to be assigned a JIRA indicating work in progress.

  • API's available to query and pull data from external languages like Python.
  • Ability to close issues other than just being fixed, for example Non-issues, Duplicates, Won't Fix (insufficient resources, etc), Incorporated, Incomplete, Can't Reproduce, etc.
  • Connection between JIRA to show relationships like dependencies, incorporation, duplication, etc. Allows for many-to-many relationship.
  • Ability to define issues as Security issues, which makes them inaccessible except for those with appropriate permissions.
