Keeping track of bugs reported during test executions is an important part of assuring the quality of the product. It can help us make sure that the bugs are appropriately taken care of. Additionally, we can use this information for further analysis, such as which parts of the system are causing the most problems. Testers can also use this knowledge for any subsequent tests, first to not duplicate already existing bugs, second to understand which problems tend to come back (regressions).
This guide explains how you can easily report and link bugs during test executions using QAlity Plus - Test Management for Jira - a tool that boosts the efficiency of testers and gives the whole team visibility into the testing status.
1. Enter the test execution
You can execute a test in QAlity Plus either directly via a test case, or via a testing cycle.
To execute a test from the test case view, enter the test case menu, and select Execute
To execute a test via a testing cycle, go to the test cycle, select the test cases tab, and then click EXecute in Cycle next to the test that you want to execute.
2. Click on the + icon in the bugs column
Once you spot a bug during the test execution, you can create a bug directly from your current test execution. To do so click on the + icon that is located on the Bugs column and then click on +Create New. You will be shown a standard Jira issue creation dialog. Once you are done filling in the details for your bug, create the issue, and it will be automatically linked to your test execution step!
If you know that a bug you encountered already exists in the team's backlog, you can instead choose to search and link the bug, instead of creating a new one. This helps avoid having multiple Jira issues to tackle the same problem and keeps your backlog clean. To search for a bug to link, simply start typing the issue key or issue summary into the Search bugs… input.
3. Easily access status of reported bugs
Once your bugs are linked to test execution steps, you can easily track their status. While you browse the test execution, hover over the link in the Bugs column and you will be shown all of the bugs reported in this step including their status.
In addition to this, you also have an insight into all bugs that have ever been reported as a part of this test execution. Scroll down to the Previous Executions section to view the list of all reported bugs.
That wasn’t difficult, was it? QAlity Plus - Test Management for Jira is available on the Atlassian Marketplace for Jira Cloud and Jira Server.
