Zephyr Squad BDD - Adding a scenario fails because 'Description' is required

Hi I just starting out using the BDD feature in Zephyr Squad but when I try to enter the a scenario I get a pop up error message saying:

{"description":"Description is required"}

 

I've read that a feature is a "Story" type issue and a scenario is a "test" type issue but in our project "Description" is set as a required field for both stories and tests, but I don't know how to show the description field to be able to populate it for the "scenario".

Any help resolving this would be most greatly appreciated.

TIA

Kay

 

Note : Description is displayed for the main story/feature

 

  • Hello KayChamberlain ,

     

    The mandatory field UI in the scenario section is yet to be implemented. As a workaround you can do following:

     

    1. Create the BDD feature.
    2. Create a test case from the Create a Test menu option or from the Create button at the top header.
    3. Add label BDD_Scenario to the test case.
    4. Link the test case using the issue link relates to to the BDD feature.

  • thankyou sanjeevpande, that has worked !!
    Do you know when/if it will be implemented as it is a little bit annoying that you cant just use it as one would expect without having to faff around creating new issue and linking it..?

        Thankyou, my team will look forward to an update and hopefully it will be soon !

        Is there a way to help raise the priority of this requirement?

        Thanks again
