Dear Testdroiders,

Few weeks ago, we enabled the JIRA integration to help you to more efficiently manage your projects, defects and do the actual testing. This seamless transition between testing on real devices and defect and project tracking environment is now available at Testdroid Cloud. In case you haven’t tried or not using it yet, take a look:

2) Click open for My Account (under top-right menu under your user profile).

3) On My Account you can find Connect to JIRA button. Click it and the following configuration will be open:

4) Configure the proper JIRA URL, username and password.

5) Fetch the certificate. Now, this varies a lot depending on if you use Mac or Windows, what web browser you have in use and so on. If you are a Windows user, you can get it from web browser and Mac users can use Keychain Access to obtain the file. When everything is configured properly you will see this:
