Ability to post test case results to existing test execution key outside of a test run via API

We are triggering eggplant automation when a Zephyr Scale test execution is updated to "In Progress" for tests which custom field "Automated Test" = Yes. We need to return test case results to the test execution key which was created when test was manually updated to in progress.

This is outside of a test run or test cycle. This is test execution initiated via issue view. Need an API endpoint to send the test results back to an existing test execution key rather than the test run key.

    We are not using ScriptRunner integration. We have been working with Eggplant developer and our Jira admin to build custom integration. The current issue is that when a tester kicks off a test case execution outside of a test cycle and the test custom field = Test Automated = Yes (at this point no manual testing occurs and test case execution trigger is sent to Eggplant) the automation kicks off the Eggplant manager test and cannot return the test results back to the test execution key which was initiated. Instead our integration is having to create a new test execution to post results to. This is problematic and loses the traceability from what was initiated in Zephyr Scale and what is returned. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Crickett/Denise.

    Thanks for this feedback. Are you using the ScriptRunner integration to make this flow work currently?

    I've moved this to gather more interest while we review other items. It's likely we'll review in the future when we evaluate improvements to the API in general.

    This is absolute necessity for our automation testing.
