Overall Satisfaction with Zephyr Enterprise

Fidelity planned on using Jira for its Quality Assurance practices like logging Bugs, Quality Dashboard, managing releases etc.
Since Jira itself is not a Test management tool, hence our problem statement was to either buy a separate Test cases management tool and manage releases and add test cases there or to look for a Jira plugin for Test Case management.

Zephyr Enterprise addressed our need to create a test plan and traceability between Tests and Stories. It also eased our ability to execute test cases and monitor these test executions at a later date.

A library of test cases with a categorization like System Tests, E2E cases, and Integration cases and the ability to re-use them in each regression or sanity cycle.

Pros

  • Creation of Folders, Sub Folder and Releases for various Teams/Projects
  • Ability to create cycles and adding cases to these
  • Ability to copy/clone entire test cycles for regression/sanity needs
  • Linking of defects to Test Cases

Cons

  • Better Test case Upload Utility
  • Ability to quickly map test cases from excel to Jira fields
  • Time saving and productivity enhancement for QA teams by preventing context and tool switching
  • High observability to management via QA Dashboards

Yes

  1. Well suited for companies having several applications which need rigorous continuous testing cycles due to periodic upgrades to products/features.
  2. Ideally suited for use cases where there is a need to run sanity and regression suites very frequently.
  3. It is very helpful to have a traceability matrix across Stories/tasks and easy to link all the test cases to be covered to stories.
  4. Variety of reports for Quality Dashboard.
