Q3 2023 Updates for Our AssertThat BDD Plugin

Updated: Nov 10, 2023

We're thrilled to share the latest updates and enhancements in Q3 2023 for our AssertThat BDD, Cucumber & Test Management for Jira plugin. In Q3, we've been hard at work to make your experience even better. Here's what's new:

Improved search and linking on issue view: Following customer feedback, we've improved the logic on how scenarios are searched on issue view, to link new scenarios. When searching by feature, only the available tags in the feature will be available from the tags drop down list making it easier to filter for your scenarios.

Performance enhancements on linking Scenarios: When there are a high number of scenarios linked to a Jira issue, we identified that in certain circumstances it was slow to link new scenarios leading to timeouts. We have made a number of improvements in this area resulting up to a 10x improvement performance.
