Understanding Requirements & Defects in QARAJ

QARAJ is an add-on that integrates Jira with QARA Enterprise – a test automation tool developed by The Digital Group – and adds advanced test management capability to the Jira interface. QARAJ allows you to map the concepts of requirement and defect to different issue types in organizations. You may configure both Requirement and Defect issue types in your Jira instance (as well as any other issue type) in the QARAJ project settings as coverable/testable entities.

When you configure an issue type to be coverable/testable, QARAJ provides specific reports as well as web panels in order to display the coverage of issues as along with their latest status regarding testing. You may also map defect issues as Defects in the QARAJ project settings. Having this kind of configuration in place, QARAJ sets the default issue type when it creates defects from testing, as well as generating reports specific to defects.

The following are the issue types configured for Test Coverage or mapped as Defects under a typical JIRA configuration.

Examples of Requirement Issue Type

  • Story
  • Task

Examples of Defect Issue Type

  • Bug

*Note: On many occasions, the Defect issue type can be configured as a testable entity. This is to ensure that a Defect does not occur again. With QARAJ, you can map the same issue type as a Defect as well as being Coverable. In such a scenario, you may associate a Defect with Test issues and also consider it for Test Coverage charts.

You may associate Requirements and Defect issues with Test case and Test Set issues within the default linking mechanism. The following diagram illustrates this.
