Requirements management

SpiraTest streamlines requirements, features, and use cases management. Users can map tests to requirements to track test coverage and drill down from requirements to tests and bugs.

Moreover, it allows developers to organize requirements in a hierarchical structure. Teams can prioritize, estimate, and associate requirements with a specific release. Users can move, copy, and filter the requirements according to a variety of criteria.

Bug tracking

The platform presents a comprehensive bug-tracking feature that manages the entire testing process. It can track bugs, enhancements, risks, and issues. Development teams can link bugs to test steps during test execution for full test traceability. SpiraTest’s bug tracking capabilities include support for customizable workflows and fields, flexible reporting, configurable email notifications, and fully editable statuses, priorities, severities, and bug types.

Test case management

Test Case Management by SpiraTest supports test review and workflow management, test coverage for requirements, test scheduling, and Data-Driven Testing with test configurations. The software allows team members to create and manage test cases in folders with sorting and filtering capabilities. Teams can display different columns in a customized view, including both standard fields and any custom properties defined for the project. Users get to view the test cases planned for the entire project or drill down and display just the tests planned for a specific release, phase, or iteration/sprint.

SpiraTest brings a flexible workflow engine, enabling developers to assign test cases for review. Users can leave comments and feedback on the test cases until they are ready for testing.

Project management

The solution delivers a Project Dashboard that displays all artifacts so teams can see the health of the project in detail. It contains summary graphs and metrics for the entire lifecycle and provides a one-stop shop for people interested in understanding the overall project status. Team members can report on all projects in a specific organization, customer, or division. Users can see the aggregate status of the program as a whole and compare the relative health of the different projects.
