A wide number of Agile teams globally use Jira for project management, issue tracking, and bug tracking. However, there are some limitations to just using Jira by itself for end-to-end test management since there is no testing-specific functionality built natively into the tool. As testing takes on an increasingly vital role in business success, testers must move to an advanced test management strategy to meet the demand for higher-quality releases with increased speed and efficiency. This can lead to a better understanding of overall quality, and help testers leverage the kind of comprehensive, organization-wide insights that can improve business outcomes.

Join Afsana Atar, author of the book “Hands-on Test Management with Jira”, as she discusses practical strategies for designing a comprehensive test management approach within Jira. You'll learn the importance of a model-driven approach in effective implementation of test management processes using Jira. You’ll also get to grips with how to choose the right tools and techniques, and judiciously use automation to streamline overall test efforts and scale operations:

  • How to align various phases of project management such as test planning, strategy, execution, monitoring, controlling, and closure with test activities.
  • Ways to Configure tools like synapseRT, Confluence, and Jenkins to manage your Agile project and enable seamless collaboration between teams.
  • Explore a model-driven approach to implement effective test management processes and learn how to use the right tools and techniques, set up the infrastructure for improved test performance, and judiciously use automation to streamline overall test efforts and scale operations.
