Below is a quick run down on all the major terms and concepts used by Test Management for JIRA:

Test CaseA Test Case is a test artefact developed for a particular test condition, such as to exercise a particular program path or to verify compliance with a specific requirement
Test ScriptA Test Script specifies a sequence of steps and expected results for the execution of a Test Case. Also known as Manual Test Script or Test Procedure Specification
Test CycleA Test Cycle is an ordered list of Test Cases assigned to Testers and Test Environments created to achieve specific testing goals.
Test PlanA Test Plan is a test artefact developed to track the overall test planning view of an entire release or version. You can associate several Test Cycles to a Test Plan. By doing so, you can get real-time insights of the overall testing progress of the Test Cycles associated to a Test Plan. In addition to that, you can customize the Test Plan’s fields to track: Scope, Risks, Strategy, Entry and Exit Criteria, Test Environment, Test Bed and so on
Test ResultA Test Result is generated when a Test Case is executed. It stores the tester responsible for the execution, the execution date, the defects submitted, the environment and the status of the execution (eg: Passed, Failed, etc)
Test EnvironmentA Test Environment is an attribute of a Test Result. It is used to determine the environments to be tested for each Test Case. Planning your Test Environment includes defining your platform coverage, such as: operational systems, browsers, databases, etc
