    Last time I heard from you, you indicated that your integration towards Jira Server could be presented during the first quarter of 2016. Looks like you still only supports Jira Cloud. When will the ReQtest Add-On support Jira Server as well?

    • Hey Trond, I’ve spoken to our Product team, and the good news is that this is indeed a high priority issue that is included within this current sprint, and therefore is currently being worked on. The bad news is that in the previous sprint, when work on this was started, a number of obstacles was uncovered, many more than expected, which regrettably slowed us down. However, I assure you that this is a priority issue for us and is being worked in within this sprint, even if unfortunately I can not give dates or guarantees of availability by a certain date.

      If you need any more help or have further questions, please do email our support on support@reqtest.com. It is manned by our own devs, so they can answer in even more precise fashion. Thanks!

    Reqtest for Jira test management is quite impressive. It is simple and easy to use although I feel it should have more features for managing requirements and some features for developers.
