Test Management for Jira is highly customizable, and you can configure every part of the system—testing statuses, environments, labels, custom fields, etc.—to suit your specific project's needs.
To access the configuration settings, click the Ellipses icon in the upper-right corner of any screen.
There are three sections for you to customize: Configuration, Statuses, and Custom Fields.
A few essential statuses in TM4J cannot be renamed or deleted. These statuses have theicon.
Default statuses can still be archived. (See the Delete and Archive section below.)
You can create custom fields for test cases, test cycles, and test plans, test executions, and test steps. The following field types are available:
You can define whether each field is required, and you can drag-and-drop to reorder fields.
Custom fields appear on the Details tab (More Information section) of each test case/plan/cycle/step/execution in the project.
You can delete or archive any custom additions you make to TM4J.
Hover over any row, and click the cog to access the drop-down options.
If you click Delete, you are prompted to verify your choice, as deletion is permanent. Some items currently in use within the app cannot be deleted.
If you click Archive, your item becomes gray and inactive. You can reactivate it by clicking the cog, then Unarchive.
Labels can only be deleted, not archived.
When you delete a label, you are prompted with information on how the label is used throughout TM4J. If the label is used on test artefacts, you are given the option to select a replacement label.
If you select None, there is no replacement for the deleted label.
