Jama Connect User Guide


You can use tests in Jama Connect to validate and verify the quality of your product and provide reports to show connections between regulations, requirements, and tests.

A typical workflow looks like this:

  • Create test cases that meet the needs of a particular project or multiple projects across your organization. Test cases describe the specific tests you plan to use and their steps.

  • Create a test plan that gives an overview of how you want to test requirements.

  • Associate the cases you want to use into that plan using groups to organize them.

  • Get ready for testing, by moving those groups into cycles where you can see a list of all the tests you want to run. 

  • Execute the test runs and log defects as needed.

  • Resulting test run statuses roll up to calculate the overall test case status. You can then generate a report showing results, such as the Test Plan Summary Report or the Test Plan Detail Report.


You must have at least a test runner license to be able to add and edit defects and items, create test plans and runs, and manage relationships and attachments. However, test runners can only affect items that are used as defects. More extensive permissions require a different license.
