I would require your help with a tool/addon recommendation.
There is a small project for which we use JIRA to track the Tasks, Stories and Bugs.
We want to also have our test case in JIRA and for that I think an Add on would be ideal.
The addon should allow
Test case creation
If you have any ideas I would really appreciate it.
I don’t know if they are any free ones on the Atlassian marketplace, but I’ve used QA Touch in the past and it’s a lot cheaper than the big players, like Xray and Zephyr which have more features but cost a lot more.
For simple Test management in Jira you can create Custom Issue type Test Case, Test Run and then link the test cases to each run, add labels.
To be able to see the pass fail status, you would need to add custom field or custom workflow.
This part gets a bit tiresome, since you need to start copying the Test cases, if you want to track Pass Fail status per Test Run. But its doable.
Since you will still be using Jira out of the box features, you can create reports using custom JQL queries, create overviews in Confluence, etc.
If you keep it simple, this can be managable, when its starting to go out of hands, it is time for proper Test management tool. I prefer Xray since it works pretty much the same way, but with a lot of additional features.
We do use XRAY, but it is very expensive. Licence based on number of Jira users as opposed to number who would use it for testing (This is bad).
As mentioned above, you can create your own item types and go from there, but will need to be creative in cataloguing and maintaining them.
If there is an ‘alternative’ - I would also like to know and willing to look at all options.
