We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Reusability and integration capabilities which make it a great choice for organizations that use a variety of development tools and platforms.
Latest features include versioning of testings which can be great when used for multiple releases of a product.
It allows user to add whichever widget (predefined) based on the need. It has integration with CCM and RM to achieve traceability.
Integration with Confluence and JIRA.
The API to support integration of the homemade automated testing tool.
Reliable and stable. It is important that TestRail be up and running 24/7 as we have users around the world using it.
You don't need to follow complex procedures to create a test run, test case, etc.
The ability to time test runs gives the tester the ability to compare calculated times to actual times it takes for a test case to run.
Most valuable features are the ease of organizing test cases and a great API for sending results from automated test run results into the database.
Mainly Quality Assurance and DevOps, but of course the whole company and management areas with more knowledge of quality and client success approach.
Integration capabilities with other vendors' tools should improve.
Organizing the test cases is tedious. There is no mechanism to keep and maintain the test cases as hierarchy. This should be seriously addressed.
Better prediction of text.
The TestRail API to integrate reporting of automated tests is complete, but requires many requests to identify the appropriate entry.
There are a number of improvements that have been requested. While I don't have a list of these requests available, many can be found on Gurock's forum.
It would be nice if they would add an export to Word.
It would be nice to have a description section when creating the test scenario itself so I can indicate what the configuration should be.
Reporting could be more flexible regarding repeating reports.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Each license includes 12 months of customer support. A free 90-day trial of the software is also available.
The licenses of these tools (the whole CLM package) is very costly as compared to other vendors' tools.
Pricing for small teams seems correct with respect to competitors.
Negotiate the best deal you can.
My advice to others is to shop around for the best deal. Some options out there are free in cyberspace.
Use TestRail Cloud (online TR hosted server) and don't worry about maintenance or scalability. It saves a lot of cash and time.
