Assigning priority to test artifacts

Users can assign a priority to individual test artifacts. As an administrator, you can edit the literals (labels) for the existing priorities and also define a new priority. Any new priority that you create will have a value greater than the selected priority.

Before you begin

Defining a new priority requires that you have an icon to assign to the new priority.


  1. Log in as a user who has the appropriate permission to save project areas. This can be any one of the following:
    • A user granted permission to save the project area in the process configuration.
    • A user who is an administrator of the project area.
    • A user who is granted either the JazzProjectAdmins or JazzAdmins repository group permissions.
  2. In the upper-right portion of the banner click the Administration (Administration) icon and click Manage This Project Area.
  3. In the Project Area editor, click Test Artifacts > Priority.
  4. Optional: Select a new literal for the default test artifact priority.

    The default priority literal is set to Unassigned. You can change the default to another value.

  5. To change any of the existing literals, click to select an existing literal, type the new literal value, and click Save.
  6. To define a new priority literal, select the row for an existing literal (Low, Medium, or High) and click Add.
  7. When asked if you want to create a priority literal whose value is greater than the priority of the selected row, click Yes.

    For example, if you select Low, you will be adding a priority literal whose value is greater than Low, but less than Medium.

  8. In the Add Priority Literal window, type a name for the new literal, for example, Low-Medium.
  9. Click Browse, select an icon to assign to the new literal, and click OK.
  10. Click Save.
