This tutorial will walk you through the process of adding a new column to your Rapid View, and adding a corresponding JIRA status to your JIRA workflow.

For the purposes of this tutorial, we will add a column (and status) called 'Quality Testing' — but of course you can substitute this for whatever you need.

On this page:

1) Create the new JIRA Status

  1. Go to the JIRA Administration area.
  2. Create a new status called 'Quality Testing'
    (info) See Defining 'Status' Field Values in the JIRA Administrator's Guide.

2) Create a new Step in your JIRA Workflow

  1. Go to the JIRA Administration area.
  2. For each JIRA workflow that is associated with issue types that are used by projects in your Rapid View,
    1. Edit the JIRA workflow(s).
    2. Add a new step called 'Quality Testing'. In the 'Linked Status' field, select 'Quality Testing'.
      (info) See Configuring Workflow in the JIRA Administrator's Guide.

3) Create a new GreenHopper column and map it to the new Status

  1. Go to your GreenHopper Rapid View and click 'Configure'.
  2. Click the 'Columns' tab, then click 'Add Column'. A new column named 'New Column' will be added in the 2nd-last column position. (You can drag it into a different position if you wish.)
  3. Click the name 'New Column' and rename it to 'Quality Testing'.
  4. In the 'Unmapped Statuses' column at the left of the screen, locate the 'Quality Testing' status and drag it to your new 'Quality Testing' column.
