Manage your agile tests with Jira
You have adopted agile working practices.
You need a solution to manage your tests.
Squash is interfaced with Jira, #1 tool dedicated to software development for agile working team. The link is made through the free plugin Xsquash, to enable you to manage tests in agile teams.
A smooth integration with Jira,
without changing your working habits
Xsquash allows you to seamlessly integrate Squash in the Jira Agile workflow, providing information sharing, without requiring any change in your working habits.
Jira remains the tool to design your need (epics, user-stories...), sprints and releases:
Design your epics, user-stories, tasks and other issues from Jira.
Use these Jira issues as test requirements: they are automatically synchronized into Squash.
Squash is the tool to optimize the management of your test repository:
Design and organize your tests in Squash: create test cases for your acceptance criteria and additional tests to execute them from Squash.
Keep optimal visibility on your tests in Jira: for each Jira issue, test linked and execution data are displayed (test case attributes, description, test steps, pre-requisites, dataset, execution status, etc.).
Squash full potential for agile test
Squash is a widely adopted tool for test management, allowing you to design a customized and optimized test asset:
Structure your repository by organizing your elements within tree structures: gain visibility on your asset and easily trace your elements.
Optimize your asset management by using features such as dataset or test case calls: capitalize on your test cases design, share a part of your repository and avoid duplication creation.
Maintain an end-to-end traceability to ensure requirement coverage by the tests: requirements or user-stories, test cases, executions and anomalies, all these elements are interrelated and complementary.
In addition, Xsquash plugin includes a wizard to guide you step by step and allows you to create execution plans to cover all the release, sprint our JQL Jira request perimeter, with just a few clicks.
Squash allows you to meet the main principles linked to testing activities, which is essential in an agile project (acceptance criteria and test documentation, execution result documentation, traceability between expression of needs and tests...).
Test automation to keep the pace
of agile cycles
Short development cycles and repeated deliveries are integral part of agile development. Test automation allows you to deeply and frequently execute non-regression tests to focus test effort on the latest developed features.
With Squash, you will be able to automate your tests with the technology and the approach of your choice
(keywords-driven approach with Cucumber and Robot Framework, with JUnit native code or with commercial studios such as UFT and Ranorex). Once your test is automated, you can run an automated execution from Squash
with one click and as many times as you want. Execution results are directy displayed in Squash and are shared into Jira.
