Integration with JIRA makes all test cases available to anybody in the company with JIRA access

What is our primary use case?

qTest is our test case management tool.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution's real-time integration with JIRA is seamless."
  • "qTest offers a baseline feature where you can only base sort-order for a specific story or requirement on two fields. However, our company has so many criteria and has so many verticals that this baseline feature is not sufficient. We would want another field to be available in the sort order."

What other advice do I have?

It's a simple tool. The usability is pretty straightforward. For a QA tester who is an active user, the UI is pretty simple, the linkage of requirements to test case is simple, and there is searchability of test case across the project. Overall, it's better than Quality Center in the ways that I have explained. My suggestion would be to always put your use cases up-front with vendors whose tools you're looking at. Ask for a demo and make sure that your use cases match up to the demo that's being performed. We had some challenges with JIRA and the Quality Center integration, real-time…

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…
