Requirements and Test Management for Jira
Bring the whole software project right inside your Jira
What is this mess all about?
Requirements and Test Management for Jira is a brand new app by Deviniti which brings the whole software development process into Jira. This way you get more control over your project and keep track of the whole process in one place. If you’re stuck with legacy heavyweight test management tools or just starting the testing journey with your team, the app wil provide you with a single repository for your requirements and tests – even for multiple projects at a time.
How to do test management in Jira?
Create requirements in Jira
To make managing and tracing the progress easier and more transparent, you can create Requirements as regular Jira issues – they can be displayed on a Scrum or Kanban board and follow a specific workflow. Just like all other objects inside the app, requirements are displayed in a transparent tree structure which will help organize product development process from the very beginning.
Link test cases to requirements in Jira
Writing proper Test Cases will help you with executing Test Plans later on in the process. The Steps panel is fully customizable: you can rename and define columns as well as their size, drag and drop elements, and put them into groups. On the Relations tab, you can see all the connections between objects, be it Requirements, Test Cases, development Epics or Defects.
Check the Requirements Traceability Matrix in Jira
In this section, you can check which Requirements are covered by Test Cases, make sure that all Test Cases are included into Test Plans, verify the Defects linked to Test Case Executions, or confirm that Test Plans are completed in Test Executions. What is shown on X and Y axes is fully customizable with JQL filters, so you can find your own use cases for this versatile feature.
Create a test plan in Jira
By linking different Test Cases to your Test Plans, you can effortlessly prepare various scenarios for executing tests. After creating a Test Plan, you can start its execution with a single click. The Test Plans are reusable, so we can re-execute them as many times as we need.
Track test execution in Jira
The Test Execution view is clear and understandable, enabling your team to track progress of each step of the Test Plan as well as to see where the process failed and why. There’s also the Test Case Execution screen which is useful when you proceed to the monitoring phase.
Report on defects in Jira
Add comments and attachments to failed test steps and Test Cases. Create Defects right from the Test Case Execution screen, and link them to other elements of testing and development process. This way it’s easy to track all failures and find out why particular actions didn’t succeed.
