Use JIRA for Test Cases, without Zephyr
inna last edited by
We are using Jira for product backlog and bug tracking, but not willing to pay for Zephyr, it's not really a big need for it. Is there any way to manage the test cases using simply JIRA? I'm looking for a way to create test suites so i can easily handle them: i've tried linking them to the user stories or group them in sprints, but doesn't help much with the visibility, and it makes a mess with too many links on the user story. I'm trying to "invent" a way to manage test results, to clearly see which tests have been run how many time, which ones are failed/passed etc. I've tried to use subtasks for each time i need to runt a test, but somehow it complicates more the whole thing and doesn't add visibility. Anyone has any other working solutions?
We have spent a couple of days to try and test the Atlassian way of running tests in Jira from their confluence pages. After evaluation of others tools we decided to use a commercial tool that integrated with Jira. Example setup Create new Testcase issue type (with custom fields and status Passed/Failed) Create subtask of the issue (add version) Execute Testcase in subtask Filter on version and setup a report to see status Pro's No plugins No extra costs Con's Needs manual creation sub-tasks when running the test case No bulk test run setup
