We are using Jira software and I am researching test management tools that I can create manual and automated test cases and link to Jira issue tracking software. Can TestRail do this?

Hi Carol,

Thanks for your posting! Yes, TestRail has a very advanced integration with JIRA and you can learn more here:

https://blog.gurock.com/?p=3365

TestRail also fully supports manual/functional and automated test cases (and many other methodologies such as exploratory/agile testing and session-based test management):

You can quickly start a trial on our website and the trial is free for 30 days:

Tobias,
I looked on your site, but did not find pricing…possibly just missed that piece. Can you direct me to the pricing page?
Thanks,
Carol

Hey Tobias,

Thanks for answering my questions… I have a couple more….

We are also using Atlassian Service desk and want to be able to see testing results from the SD( in addition to the test management app and jira software)

I’m researching on how we can combine TFS/GIT/Atlassian Jira SD, Jira software, confluence, and a test management tool.

How would you see TestRail fitting into this configuration? What interactions with the other mentioned software could we expect to see?

Thank you,
Carol

Hi Carol,

Thanks for your feedback. As far as I know, Service Desk also uses regular JIRA issues to manage tickets and the JIRA integration should also apply here. We have more details regarding the other integration options for Confluence, Git, TFS here on our website:

http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-integration/tools-github
http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-integration/tools-tfs
http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-integration/dashboards-confluence
http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-integration/tools-jira

The JIRA integration is the most advanced (with a plugin on JIRA’s side as well) but TestRail also integrates nicely with the other tools and please let me know in case you have any further questions.

Cheers,
Tobias

Can we create automated test cases WITH TestRail?


#8

Hi Carol,

You would create regular test cases in TestRail for your automated tests and then submit test results and create test runs for those tests with TestRail’s API:

http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-api2/start

The usual approach is to run your automated tests outside of TestRail (e.g. as part of your build process or continuous integration system) and the results would be submitted afterwards with TestRail’s API. The advantage of this approach is that you have both your manual and automated test results in the same place and can run reports and have statistics for both in the same tool.

There’s a good introduction to test automation with TestRail on our blog and this demonstrates how other teams integrate their tests with TestRail:

I hope this helps!

Cheers,
Tobias
