Use JIRA for Test Cases, without Zephyr



  • 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
