Test Management Capability of the QARAJ Add On for Jira

QARAJ (QARA – Test Management for JIRA) is a JIRA add-on that enhances the test management capabilities of the software. QARAJ enhances Jira's test management capability and allows QA teams to access Jira directly from the QARA Enterprise Jira test management tool's UI. The Atlassian Marketplace has the Jira add-on available for download. In this post, we'll look at how QA teams may use the QARAJ add-on to connect Jira to the QARA Enterprise Jira test management system to manage requirements.

It can also be used with QARA Enterprise to track bugs and issues on the QARAJ add-on platform, a test Management app for Jira, rather than migrating to JIRA.


Given below are the key features of the QARAJ Add-On, a test Management app for Jira.


  • Introduce an issue type "Test Case" for creating test case
  • Organize test cases in folders
  • Plan and Assign test execution cycles
  • Keep track of Execution History


Full transparency into test programs, increased team productivity, aids in establishing best practices.

  • Project Summary Report
  • Test Summary Report
  • Velocity Report
  • Release Report
  • Traceability Report
  • Defect Metrics Report
  • Execution Reports


  • QARA Enterprise: QARA is an integrated platform that supports declarative, no-scripting, no-coding functional test automation design, management, planning, and execution along with built-in reporting capabilities.
  • Qapture: Qapture Extension is used to post annotated screen as attachment to a new Jira issue and also to post the screen as attachment for existing issue for a selected project.

You can login to Qapture Extension using JIRA credentials. On Qapture, multiple options are available to post annotated screen as attachments. 

Benefits of using QARAJ issue type in test management

QARA Enterprise has all of the capabilities your QA team requires for complete test automation. Get started by downloading a Free Trial today! Given below is a list of common tasks that we can perform using QARAJ, a test Management app for Jira with enhanced test management capability: 

  • QARAJ Test Case Creation: We can create new Test Cases as an ‘issue type’ in QARAJ
  • Folder Creation & Test Case Assignment: We can assign the test cases within a project into folders.
  • Test Cycle Creation: We can create Test Cycles and assign Test cases to a test cycle.
  • Test Case Execution: We can execute the test case to compare the expected and actual results/performance.
  • Execution History: We can view a history of executed test cases and generate test reports.

Hence, testing artifacts are also managed in the same way as any other issue type you may have (e.g. Bug, Story). This is a core and unique characteristic of QARAJ, a test Management app for Jira, that leverages the native features and brings them to your testing artifacts.
