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

The YouTrack 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 YouTrack integration in Testmo.

Configuring the YouTrack integration

To configure the YouTrack 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 YouTrack 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:

    # YouTrack InCloud: Replace <name> with the name of your YouTrack instance
    # Or if you are using an older YouTrack InCloud instance
    # Or YouTrack Standalone (server): Replace <address> with the server address
    • View issue link: When users click on a linked YouTrack issue ID, users are redirected to this address. Testmo replaces the $(id) placeholder with the actual ID:

    # YouTrack InCloud: Replace <name> with the name of your YouTrack instance
    # Or if you are using an older YouTrack InCloud instance
    # Or YouTrack Standalone (server): Replace <address> with the server address
    • Issue ID format: For YouTrack, select Key-Number

Using the YouTrack integration

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

Adding new YouTrack issues

To create new YouTrack issues from Testmo, simply follow these steps:

  • From any entity supporting issues in Testmo (such as cases, test results, runs, milestones etc.), click the Add link next to the Issues field (you can find this field in the entity's Add/Edit dialog or from inline result forms)

  • In the Add issues popup:

    • Select the configured YouTrack issue tracker (see above)

    • Either enter one or more existing YouTrack issue IDs in the Issue IDs field, or click the + New issues link to access YouTrack

    • When adding new issues, create the issue in YouTrack, then close the window and enter the new YouTrack issue ID

    • Confirm the new issue links by clicking Add

Accessing YouTrack issues from Testmo

After referencing YouTrack issues by linking existing or new issue IDs (see above), you can directly navigate to the issue in YouTrack to review the details or update the status. Testmo supports issue links in various places:

  • Milestones

  • Cases

  • Runs

  • Test results

  • Sessions

  • Session results

  • Automation comments

Linked issues are also listed on the Issue report pages for milestones, runs and automation.
