Software development – and subsequently software testing – is happening at speeds which we’ve never seen before. With many tests being set up and deployed automatically in order to keep up with pace and maintain quality and diligence throughout the testing process, keeping track of those tests has become even more paramount.
This is the junction of browser (and app) testing and test management. Test management is crucial to ensure collaboration and traceability throughout the testing lifecycle, especially given the increase in volume and complexity of these automated tests.
Unifying test automation and test management capabilities can be done using SmartBear’s industry leading test automation software CrossBrowserTesting, and Zephyr for Jira, the most widely used test management tool to work natively inside Jira.
The CrossBrowserTesting and Zephyr for Jira integration allows teams to easily manage all of their manual and automated tests. Users and testers can quickly navigate to the respective Jira card to view results of each test, analyze pictures and video recordings of the test, and add any notes that may have come up — all within that native Jira experience.
By including test management in your Agile process, you’ll have much more control and visibility into your team’s efforts. During Sprint and Release meetings, you can make sure tests are properly executed, while giving your testers the ability to quickly change or re-prioritize tests accordingly.
