View Katalon Studio Test Execution Result right on Jira

Once Jira is integrated with Katalon Studio and the add-on is enabled in Jira Cloud, a panel called TEST RESULT inside the issue page enables users to directly view the test result. In the new view of the issue page, just click Test Result. The result includes the execution status (PASSED, FAILED, INCOMPLETE, ERROR) and test artifact attachments (e.g. logs, screenshots, etc.).

Note: In Katalon Studio, the test case imported from Jira should be executed in Test Suite to view the test result.

Use JQL Syntax to query all issues with a particular execution status

Katalon Studio's test execution status can be queried via JQL. The syntax is as follows:

"Katalon Status"="STATUS"

For example, to search for the issues with PASSED status
