Overall Satisfaction with HipTest
HipTest is being used in my company mainly for running automated regressions for scenarios with different levels of priority in our test environments, but also we use this tool to track the progress of the testing of the stories during every sprint (we work with SCRUM methodology). We have this tool linked to JIRA so in this way we can see in JIRA the progress of the testing in HipTest for each ticket but in HipTest we can see a general overview of the progress of all tickets included as part of the "test run" ("test run" is the term used in Hiptest to make reference to a set of tests).
- Good integration with JIRA
- Includes integration with different tools for different porpuses
- You can build your own framework to automate scenarios and make it work with Hiptest
- UX is not too obvious and easy (like generating a data table in a scenario or including a scenario in a test run) but you can get used to it relatively easy by playing around with the options, also the documentation is helpful.
- To get extra functionalities you have to pay for them separately.
- It helps to have organization in our scenarios.
- It helps to get regressions done faster than doing it manually
- It helps to graphically see the progress and results of executions.
The tool includes a basic but complete documentation that can be very helpful to get started using the tool. The UX sometimes does not feel very easy to understand but after some use you can get familiar without reading the documentation. The webinars are not very useful for using the tool, I have seen a couple of them and they are actually focused on promoting their HipTest product to new users instead of being useful and educational for current users.

HipTest is good and helpful to create and run functional regressions but it is more complicated to use this tool to create and run API testing scenarios (it does not mean it can not be done). This tool is definitively not appropriate for running performance testing scenarios.
