Synchronize the QA Complete with JIRA project Management Tool 

To synchronize the QA Complete Test Management tool with the JIRA Project Management tool we must install and configure QA Complete – JIRA Connector.

QA Complete – JIRA Connector:

It is a connector to synchronize JIRA issues with QA Complete Defects or Requirements.It synchronizes the data based on the settings that are done i.e. Unidirectional synchronization/bidirectional synchronization

  1. Bidirectional – Any change made in one system will be updated in the other system
  2. Unidirectional – Changes that are made in the source system will be updated in the destination system [NOTE: Changes made in the destination system will be overwritten by the changes made later in the source system.

Below are the Steps to Synchronize QA Complete with JIRA
