Data Storage


QMetry Test Management for Jira add-on provides space for data storage depending on the number of users of the organization. Metering and capping on test asset data generated on a QTM4J instance are enabled to prevent excessive use or overutilization of data storage through Automation.

The Data Storage option displays data storage consumption for the QMetry for Jira instance along with the total storage allocated based on your Jira user tier.

most data.
