Efficient re-usability of action words, but better integration with the JIRA storyboard is needed
What is our primary use case?
The primary use case is tracking user stories with appropriate test coverage for them, using the BDD framework. Hiptest is mainly used for documenting all of the tests, which we can't do on JIRA.
Pros and Cons
"The data table that helps in converting a single script to multiple test cases is very helpful."
"The reporting needs to be improved."
What other advice do I have?
The suitability of Hiptest depends on the use cases. If you want to document manual test cases and the documentation should be as a programming concept, then you should use it. You can re-use test cases and you can also generate multiple tests from the dataset. My advice for anybody who is implementing a BDD automation framework is to write the feature files in Hiptest, which will help in designing your automation scripts. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
