QARAJ is a Jira add-on that combines Jira with The Digital Group's QARA Enterprise test automation platform and offers comprehensive test management capabilities to the Jira interface. QARAJ's testing feature can be utilised in a variety of ways, including by project teams with extensive test procedures or by teams that are brand new to implementing an approach to testing.
Following are some examples of the testing approach of the QARAJ Add-on.
1] Basic Execution Planning
This is what you'll need to organise your test executions into Test Cycles, which will allow you to keep track of what has been tested and what hasn't. It also allows you to keep track of the difficulties and failures encountered during the test case execution process, as well as how much work remains. Setting up the Test Cycle(s) in a given Version and then ensuring that each test execution is recorded against those Test Cycles is a step that requires thorough planning (s).
2] Structured Execution Planning
Structured Execution Planning entails setting up the Test Cycle(s) as well as participating in the creation/modification of a significant number of test cases. In addition, it comprises the addition of test cases to the relevant Test Cycle(s) for future execution. You are also permitted to run the test cases throughout the project's allocated execution stages.
As the name implies, a Structured Test Approach divides your testing activities into discrete phases of organisation, planning, execution, and tracking.
3] Structured Approach to Testing
Moving on to the final element, a Structured Test Approach allows for four separate phases, as the name implies:
Given below is a quick look at the many phases.
a] Organization Phase
Import, reuse, modification, cloning, and development of test cases are all part of the Organization step. This phase also entails connecting the test cases to various issue categories, such as epics, tales, and requirements. This step also entails arranging test cases according to Versions, Labels, and Components.
b] Planning Phase
The Planning step entails creating various Test Cycles and adding the test cases that must be executed to these Test Cycles. The tasks completed during the planning phase, which primarily consist of grouping test cycles, aid in the easy tracking of test cases.
c] Execution Phase
The Execution phase entails the actual execution of test cases across multiple Test Cycles, with each execution carried out in a methodical manner. This step also entails linking to existing issues and bugs, filing new ones, and tracking the test case execution progress.
d] Tracking Phase
The Tracking phase is all about keeping track of the test case's progress and other metrics. Metrics are used to track the execution of organised test cases. You also have Test Cycle reports, which show progress as well as the application's quality. The executive summary report is offered in a number of different versions.
So, that was about the Test Approach of the QARAJ ad-on. Have you tried QARAJ yet? Download the QARAJ add-on from the Atlassian Marketplace.
