The Xsquash suite allows you to interface Squash with Jira to automatically transmit information from one tool to another and work in Agile mode. At the heart of Squash, the "Xsquash4Jira" plugin enables the synchronization of Jira User Stories with Squash requirements. On the Jira side, "Xsquash" allows users to follow directly in Jira User Stories the testing work progress as it happens in Squash. This tool is available since 2018 as a plugin and can be downloaded for free on the Atlassian Marketplace in a version compatible for Jira Server: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1219060/xsquash-agile-testing-with-oss-squash?hosting=server&tab=overview.
This service is now also available for the Jira Cloud platform. Optimized for the Jira Cloud environment, Xsquash is now available as an application hosted by Henix. Xsquash Cloud allows Jira users with a Squash license to retrieve in Jira the writing progress of the test cases covering their User Stories as well as the executions of these test cases.
