Zephyr Enterprise

Tip: Bamboo is a continuous integration and deployment tool that ties automated builds, tests and releases together in a single workflow.

How to Manage It: Using Bamboo in conjunction with Zephyr Enterprise to get all of your manual test, automated tests from multiple frameworks, and results from automated builds all in one place has never been easier. All that is required is the Zephyr Enterprise Plugin for Bamboo available for free in the Atlassian Marketplace. Once installed, developers can run continuous builds as they normally would but can now select a specific previously created Zephyr Enterprise test cycle to push results to or create a brand new test cycle from the Bamboo UI without ever coming into Zephyr Enterprise. Test results will appear in Zephyr's test case execution module, test cycles and plans will appear in Zephyr's EAS module, and test cases themselves can be pushed to the test case creation module. All ultimately showcased in Zephyr's real-time metrics module for management to keep up with overall progress.

Zephyr for JIRA

Tip: Building Testcases with JIRA Capture

How To Manage It: With the Capture extension installed, click on the Capture icon. In the left-hand panel, you’ll notice that the Issues tab is preselected. Take a screen shot, annotate it if need be. Now you can now enter a Title, with more detail in the Description, select a Project, choose the issue type to be “Test”, and select the Fix Version(s).  You can now create the issue.

These steps will help to build a Testcase placed into JIRA with the relevant Capture information attached. The Testcase can now be executed by choosing the “Execute” button at the top of the Testcase page.
