I’ll give a little bit of background information first. I’ve been hired at my company as the first tester. We are a small but fast growing company that produces web and smartphone applications and other software, as one of our activities. My boss wants me to set up the companies testing structure for our products. Also important to add: I’m new to testing.
We want an online test management tool that we can integrate with Jira. Testrail is my first choice at the moment. I’ve been trying it out and I must say that I like it a lot.
I would like the community’s advise on something:
What is the most efficient structure I can setup in testrail for software tests across multiple devices and OS? A typical project would look something like this (fictitious):
- softwareX Brazil web application:
IE, google chrome, firefox, …
safari, chrome …
- softwareX Bzazil phone application:
For android, iphone ios, Windows phone, …
How would you organize this in testrail?
I was thinking of creating:
- 2 separate projects for the web and phone apps
- milestones for the different releases for the different platforms
- test suites for the main features of the app
- test cases for shared elements
- subsections for elements that are different depending on the platforms (android, ios, …/ IE,chrome, …)
Is this a good way to organize testing in this scenario, or do you think their is a better way? I would love to create test plans that creates test runs for multiple platforms as shown in testrail’s video guides
Your advice is much appreciated, thanks in advance,
