A Zephyr administrator can now choose whether to create Jira defects via Zephyr’s File New Defect dialog or directly in Jira. This is done by using the new Create defects in Jira toggle switch on the Administration > Jira Integration page:
When the toggle is ON, Jira’s Create issue dialog opens in a new tab when you start filing a defect in Zephyr and you can create an issue directly in Jira. If the toggle is OFF, defects are created in Zephyr.
Note: We recommend toggling on this option if your Jira issues have required custom fields.
