TestRail

TestRail is a web-based, modern test case management system. It helps the development and Quality Assurance (QA) teams efficiently manage, track, and organize software testing efforts. The integration of TestRail and Jira brings real-time visibility for the development and QA team in each other’s work. With this kind of visibility, it becomes easier for both the teams to coordinate over planning of iterations, defects, quality parameters, test results, and understand complete context of the customer requirement.

This, in turn, helps in delivering a high-quality product to customers at a faster pace.

TestRail and Jira Integration Overview

In an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) ecosystem, the choice of systems and the collaboration between the cross-functional teams play a great role. While the choice of systems impacts the productivity of a team, the cross-functional collaboration helps the teams get complete context of the business requirements.

Best-of-breed systems such as TestRail and Jira bring rich functionalities to the ecosystem. By integrating TestRail and Jira, enterprises can seamlessly manage product development at a faster pace.

How TestRail and Jira Integration is Beneficial for an Enterprise

  • Enhance collaboration between development & QA teams
  • Freedom to leverage the tool for a process
  • Access to QA plans and defects in real time
  • Real-time insights into the test processes, test plans, and test cases
  • Coordinate on the delivery timelines seamlessly with concurrent updates on changes

How OpsHub Integration Manager Integrates TestRail and Jira

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates TestRail and Jira bidirectionally. It ensures that all data is available to each user, in that user’s preferred system, with full context, in real-time. The test result of a failed test run in TestRail synchronize to Jira. The developer using Jira creates a defect based on the result. The developer as well as the QA team, then, write test cases against the same defect – all these test cases are accessible from both the systems. If the default synchronization between these two systems is already on, the data related to defect automatically synchronizes to the associated test entity. The cross-team visibility created by Jira-TestRail integration ensures that planning, development, and quality checks of the product being developed are thorough and the teams involved in the process have seamless communication.

Use Case: TestRail Integration with Jira

Problem statement:As the test management system and development system are not integrated, the lack of coordination between the teams impact the delivery timelines and product quality.

Solution:The cross-team visibility created by Jira and TestRail integration ensures that planning, development, and quality checks of the product being developed are thorough and the teams involved in the process have seamless communication.

  1. The test result of a failed test run in TestRail synchronize to Jira.
  2. The developer using Jira creates a defect based on the result.
  3. The developer as well as the QA team, then, write test cases against the same defect – all these test cases are accessible from both the systems.
  4. If the default synchronization between these two systems is already on, the data related to defect automatically synchronizes to the associated test entity.
