Testmo integrates with Shortcut so you can add new issues (stories in Shortcut) from Testmo, link Shortcut issues from various entities such as test results and cases, and directly report & access referenced issues.

The Shortcut integration uses Testmo's link-based integration that enables you to work and integrate with various issue trackers. This page explains how to configure and use the Shortcut integration in Testmo.

Configuring the Shortcut integration

To configure the Shortcut integration, in Testmo go to Admin > Integrations. You need to be a project or site administrator in Testmo to access this area. Then follow these instructions:

  • Select Custom issue tracker

  • Click + Issue tracker

  • In the Add issue tracker dialog, enter the details of your Shortcut instance:

    • Name: Select the name you want to use for the integration. The name will be displayed in Testmo when choosing an issue tracker integration.

    • New issue link: This is the link users are redirected to when adding new issues from Testmo:

    # Replace <name> with your Shortcut workspace name<name>/stories/new
    • View issue link: When users click on a linked Shortcut issue ID, users are redirected to this address. Testmo replaces the $(id) placeholder with the actual ID:

    # Replace <name> with your Shortcut workspace name<name>/story/$(id)
    • Issue ID format: For Shortcut, select Number

Using the Shortcut integration

The integration allows users to add new issues to Shortcut during testing and during test case design. Users can also access linked Shortcut issues from tests, cases, runs etc. from the entity pages and issue reports to implement Shortcut test management with Testmo.
