With a round trip, you can batch-edit multiple items or test cases in Jama Connect and create new items or test steps to be imported.

Problem: depending on the number of items to be batch edited and/or updated, the task may take minutes, hours, or even days to complete.


When a task is running in the background, there is no way to cancel it from the user interface.

It is better to split a large batch of data into smaller batches and update them separately, rather than updating them all at once. There is no easy solution to this problem, but following these best practices will help prevent data corruption and ensure that your tasks are completed efficiently.
