SmartBear Announces QAComplete Add-on for JIRA
March 28, 2017

SmartBear Software announced a new add-on to unify SmartBear’s QAComplete test management application with Atlassian’s JIRA issue management tool.

The QAComplete add-on for JIRA Software allows teams to easily design, plan, execute and track testing progress.

Atlassian JIRA Software is the most popular tool used by development and QA teams to capture, track and resolve bugs and issues throughout the entire development cycle. As an Agile project management tool, JIRA Software is not primarily aimed at test case management. For QA and development teams using JIRA Software, having a comprehensive test case management strategy is critical to reduce costs incurred from unnecessary tests, while accounting for risk and planning for coverage. A dedicated test case management tool working with JIRA Software helps teams plan, track and proactively manage manual as well as automated tests, thereby enabling them to develop and deliver software more rapidly.

The QAComplete add-on for JIRA Software on the Atlassian Marketplace empowers application development and delivery (AD&D) teams to combine JIRA Software’s issue and bug tracking expertise with the flexible test case management capabilities of QAComplete, providing the best of both worlds. With the new add-on, team members using JIRA Software can be kept up-to-speed on any testing activities taking place in QAComplete. Any changes made are automatically reflected across user stories, tasks, bugs or even custom issue types in JIRA Software. The add-on also provides real-time access to test steps, helping teams reproduce scenarios without switching context and jumping between separate tools.

With QAComplete add-on for JIRA Software, teams can easily track and manage their tests along with other aspects of the software development cycle such as bugs, tasks and more.
