As software teams shift to a more agile, continuous approach to building and testing applications, collaboration becomes increasingly important. Software testing often times involves a large number of people functioning in different roles. Even on the most cutting edge development or testing teams, there are still “swim-lanes” dealt out and hierarchies of accountability if not responsibility. That’s why CrossBrowserTesting has gone to great lengths to make almost any result easily shareable through multiple channels.
We have over 5 different ways to share test results and artifacts, and an almost unlimited number of options when you involve our easy to use API. Share test recordings with other developers, or your screenshot results with your project manager or CMO – assuring them of quality before launch.
Today, we’ll go over sharing your browser tests with our public URL, email, Slack, HipChat, and Jira.
The simplest way to share your test results, we supply a public link that you can share with teammates. Others can view almost any test result without being logged in.
CBT also makes it possible to manually or automatically share your tests results with emails. When selected before your screenshot test, we’ll email you the entered recipients as soon as they are finished. This is great way to multi-task and keep historical archives.
Slack is a fantastic communication tool that is quickly growing in companies of all sizes. We’re big users of Slack, both at CrossBrowserTesting and company-wide at SmartBear, so we decided it would be our first third-party sharing integration. You can integrate with your Slack group, and then select a #channel to share with. If selected on the Screenshot Run Page, you can have any screenshot test automatically shared with a selected channel.
Another tool we use throughout our company, Jira is revolutionizing the project management market with great, agile software. With our integration you can share test results and artifacts with Jira as tasks or bugs, keeping your team up to date and pulling down tickets.
