qTest

Suite of Agile software testing tools with JIRA integration

About qTest

qTest is an agile dev testing platform for in-sprint test management. Designed specifically for DevOps teams, the cloud-based suite of tools helps users collaborate on open source testing, exploratory testing, and BDD (behavior-driven development), whilst providing real time visibility into test statuses and results. qTest integrates with Jira Software in order to streamline releases, issues, and defects, and allow users to access and analyze Cucumber test scenario results.

The qTest platform offers six modules; qTest Manager for case management, qTest Insights for real-time test metrics, qTest Launch for managing open source frameworks, qTest Explorer for recording test executions, qTest Scenario for scenario development, and qTest Pulse for managing Agile processes. The suite of tools allows teams to collaborate on and manage their development pipeline from end to end, identify bottlenecks, and track the performance of releases from one centralized platform. Tests can be automated and scaled to suit business needs, and qTest integrates with a range of Agile and DevOps tools, such as Jira, Cucumber, Bamboo, Jenkins, and more, to enable seamless collaboration.

Really well versed usability of the tool in the project. Used almost all the features mentioned in pros, helpful for scrum meetings, getting updates on time, good understanding of the names in tool like release, sprint, labels, etc., Reporting was very colorful for effective presentation, user management is very easy across projects.

Pros

Perfectly fit for agile projects, story board, customization of the product, reporting, bug management, reporting and analysis, user management, project milestones, color coding, flexible to upload/link attachments, shortcut keys for accessing items, integration with other market tools like blueprint, microsoft azure, caliber, etc.,

Cons

I liked all the features, least item is managing API code with postman tool and other coding features.

Have only been using this for about 6 months now and haven't really gotten used to all of the functionality. I believe I am not utilizing all of the functionality, need to take some time aside and learn about more of the bells and whistles.

Pros

This software integrates with The Atlassian Jira software pretty well. I can select the Story or Bug that is imported from Jira to a test script and then the text execution data will be displayed in Jira. The catch is that unless you have a qTest license you can't see the actual details of the test when you click on it. You can also click the little create bug button while running a test case in qTest and it will automatically create the Bug in Jira and populate as much data as it can from the current test case.

Cons

I'm not sure if it is our implementation - but it seems to hiccup often, I randomly get errors or steps don't display. My problem is that I sometimes forget to click the Save button and I walk away and if the session times out - then all your work is lost.

Review of qTest

Reviewed on 2019/04/08

Pros

The software was integrated with qTest to bring over requirements and create test cases and execute them in qTest. We were able to run queries to find specific modules and run specific test cases. We were also able to effectively track which test cases had been executed and the result of those test cases. Then, qTest created helpful infographics to help us further track how far along in the test execution process we were.

Cons

Sometimes, the requirements between qTest and JIRA did not sync well. There were many times where the number of requirements in each software was not the same. Along with this, some of the qTest add-ons such as Insights are very difficult to work with and not intuitive as normal data analysis tools.

Its helping in ease of doing business and run the agile environment in a smooth way

Pros

I have been using qtest for a while and I really like it the way it has built up. The integration with jira allows to link JIRA issues against the Qtest which is helpful in overall visibility.

Cons

The recent removal of precondition/Prerequisite field I didn't like it. In recent version the test pre requisite you cannot add.

We are trying to replace HP ALM because it's only compatible with an old IE version, has TERRIBLE UI and disrupts a lot of our workflows. If qTest were a more reasonable cost, we would seriously consider implementing this agile test management suite.

Pros

I like how easy it is to save work, the intuitive UI and the color scheme for quick status checks. The layout is straightforward like Rally's and it can be a requirements repository. Integration seems to be easy and possible with requirements and Jira.

Cons

I didn't like how many steps it seems to take to set up the test plan folders. Our testing is pretty rigorous and used for FDA - approved medical devices so that some of the default workflows and fields are not robust enough. I don't like that the Actual Results field can be left blank as long as you select a test status.
