Should sprints be under milestones?


So were using Jira to track issues/sprints etc… however test plans/UATP’s are kept in testrail. Im curious how the “milestones” should be used in this case? Should I use them as Sprints? and assign the test cases per “milestone/sprint” in that way?

or something else?


Hello Matt,

Thanks for your posting. We usually recommend test plans to manage sprints. You can further use milestones to group those sprints and this is useful to have all sprints for a release in a central location, for example, but this is optional. You can also learn more about plans, configurations and milestones using our training videos:

I hope this helps!
