Hands-On Test Management with Jira

By: Afsana Atar

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. By the end of this book, you’ll have gained a clear understanding of how to model and implement test management processes using Jira.

Defining test cycles

Test cycles are designed based on the type of project the test team is working on. While designing test cycles, the test team performs the following tasks:

  1. Validates the test coverage: This ensures that the test execution phase includes all of the test cases that are required to validate all of the requirements.
  1. Estimates the efforts: Based on the complexity of the requirements, the priority of the test cases, the current skill level of the assigned resources, the availability of the testing tools, and the scope and allotted time, the test team estimates the time required to complete the test execution.
  2. Defines iterations: If several defects are found during the initial test execution iteration, which results in a huge impact on the features of the application, the test team can always add another test execution iteration. Depending on the number of cycles, the buffer time, the defect retest time, and scheduled meetings, the estimation of test execution may vary.
