More details

The plugin enables projects to efficiently use stand-alone issue-types for each acceptance criteria within a user story. Historically each criteria has been tugged away within the description field - this makes it very hard to get a clear view of how each specific acceptance criteria is tested and changed over time.

Using this plugin, you get a fine-grained structure in your story hierarchy, which enables the following:

  • End-to-end fine-grained traceability between functional requirements and the underlying tests
  • Manual and Automated tests can point directly to the specific criteria they are testing
  • Full test-coverage of all criteria can easily be verified using jira JQL
  • Custom fields for each criteria, such as criteria-type, automation-degree and implementation status
  • Full versioning of acceptance criteria, which gives full insights into the activity within each criteria

This plugin is for every project that needs a more fine grained structure and the advantages that comes with it.
