Overview of this book

Hands-On Test Management with Jira begins by introducing you to the basic concepts of Jira and takes you through real-world software testing processes followed by various organizations. As you progress through the chapters, the book explores and compares the three most popular Jira plugins—Zephyr, Test Management, and synapseRT. With this book, you’ll gain a practical understanding of test management processes using Jira. You’ll learn how to create and manage projects, create Jira tickets to manage customer requirements, and track Jira tickets. You’ll also understand how to develop test plans, test cases, and test suites, and create defects and requirement traceability matrices, as well as generating reports in Jira. Toward the end, you’ll understand how Jira can help the SQA teams to use the DevOps pipeline for automating execution and managing test cases. You’ll get to grips with configuring Jira with Jenkins to execute automated test cases in Selenium.

In this chapter, we learned about the test design phase by creating and organizing test cases for a current project, as well as reusing them under a different project. A test case describes the step-by-step actions that a tester needs to perform to get their expected results. Setting up the current data or appropriate environment is essential for getting accurate results, since any change to the environment and test data can alter these results. Reusing these test cases across different projects as and when needed minimizes the time and effort spent on creating and reviewing test cases.

We saw how test cases can be reused across projects using Jira plugins. There are various ways to organize test cases in the test repositories. We can segregate them based on test suites, sub-test suites, label, requirement ID, and so on. We saw how Jira plugins can be used to create these test repositories for the project.

In the next chapter, we will take a closer look at the test execution phase...
