TestRail JIRA 7.0 Test Management Add-On & Updates

header

Just a few weeks ago we released our new JIRA test management integration with full JIRA add-ons for cloud and server instances as part of our TestRail 5.0 release. The feedback (and adoption rate) has been great and we are happy to see that hundreds of teams already installed and successfully use the new add-ons every day.

Today we are announcing that we have updated our JIRA add-ons to work with JIRA 7.0 (released this week) and added the ability to limit the integration to select projects (for Servers and Cloud), or user groups (JIRA Server only), among other new features. This makes TestRail the only test management tool that integrates JIRA add-ons per project.

Start Your Migration: CSV/Excel Import in TestRail 4.1

header

We’ve always offered options to import and migrate your test cases to our test management tool TestRail, so you could continue using your existing projects after making the switch. We have import scripts for select legacy tools and offer an advanced migration tool for Excel/CSV files. Our existing migration scripts work great to convert your tests from various tools and formats, including other test management tools and spreadsheets. This is especially useful if you want to customize and adjust the migration for your specific file format.

Not all teams need this level of flexibility and not all file formats require custom logic to map your data to TestRail’s test cases though. Before adding a direct CSV import option in TestRail, we wanted to make sure that we have a very flexible design that allows users to import a wide range of files and formats. And all this without having to adjust or prepare the files first. With today’s TestRail 4.1 release we are happy to offer such a direct CSV import option that will make it much easier to import existing test cases from third-party tools, issue trackers and spreadsheet files.
