How to Submit a Bug to Jira with Required Custom Field

The current Test Studio implementation for JIRA bug tracking does not support specifying custom fields through the UI when submitting a bug. Thus you will get the following error when try to submit the bug directly:

Jira Error

In order to denote your required fields and what to fill them with, create a file called JiraMappings.json in the following directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Test Studio\Bin\Plugins

Plugins Folder

Open it with a text editor, like Notepad, and insert the following content:

"IssueTypeName": "Defect",
"Fields" : {"assignee": {"name": "username" }, "labels": ["defect"],  "customfield_10401":{"required custom field": "value"}, "customfield_10402":{"another required custom field": "value"} }

In JIRA, custom fields are referenced by "customfield_" + the id of the custom field. In the above example there are two custom fields referrenced with their names and respective values.

When configuring the default values for your custom fields in the json file, you should have in mind the type of the field and use the correct id and syntax.

Here are some examples of how to set different types of custom fields.
