We're spending less time trying to find defects and doing manual testing

What is our primary use case?

We have licenses for qTest Manager and Flood. We use Flood for performance testing. We use the Manager on a day-to-day basis for storing the test cases and linking them with the NPM, with the Selenium automation test cases, and we schedule runs through qTest. We also have Jira Cloud and connectivity using the CI/CD pipeline. We connect qTest with Jira and set up our runtime and regression automation. Manual is done using just the Manager and the automation is done using Selenium and Selenide. All the user stories are done in JIRA. We take those user stories from JIRA and input them into qTest… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The most important feature which I like in qTest manager is the user-friendliness, especially the tabs. Since I'm the admin, I use the configuration field settings and allocate the use cases to the different QA people. It is not difficult, as a QA person, for me to understand what is happening behind the scenes."
  • "As an admin, I'm unable to delete users. I'm only able to make a user inactive. This is a scenario about which I've already made a suggestion to qTest. When people leave the company, I should be able to delete them from qTest. I shouldn't have to have so many users."

What other advice do I have?

Go for it, take a shot at it. Try it out with the 30-day free trial. If you really find it to be a good fit for your company, the productivity and the cost, go ahead and choose it. It's definitely a good tool. The biggest thing we've learned from this tool is the ease of using it. It is easier. There is a possibility of creating the entire application lifecycle management by moving around different tabs and moving around different options. With one screen it is easy for a QA person to get into it. We have not used Insights that much. We have used it to some extent but we haven't gone into the…

Useful for test case management and automation integration, but it should have a utility for automation integration

What is our primary use case?

We have been working with DFS for almost six or seven years. We have a lot of automation in our own framework, and DFS is supporting that framework. We have integrated DFS with our automation framework. We moved to JIRA because of the cost. We needed a test management solution, and we are in the process of finalizing Zephyr for that. The management is yet to decide whether we move to Zephyr or continue with DFS. We are still using DFS for most of our projects. For some of the projects, we are using Zephyr. We are using continuous integration while doing the deployment to Bamboo.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has many features, but the main things that we need are the test cycles and integration with automation because we have automation for the web and mobile applications. We use it for test case management to run the test cases and get the results. At this moment, it is fulfilling our requirements. We are able to get the test execution report and the test pass and fail report. This summary is delivered to our management."
  • "We have a lot of automation for our products, and we require a utility for its integration with automation. Currently, we have to write this utility ourselves. It would be great if they can provide such a utility."

What other advice do I have?

My advice is to go for a tool that meets or fulfills your needs. I am currently exploring how to shift the test cases from DFS to JIRA or Zephyr. If we decide to go with Zephyr, we have around 3,000 to 4,000 test cases written in DFS that need to be shifted to Zephyr. I would rate Zephyr Enterprise a seven out of ten.
