August 2020 Updates

Last updated: August 31, 2020

Here are some updates from the past month


  • The QA revolution is here - don’t stay behind!
    Manage your entire process of automation, manual and exploratory testing - all in one place

    We have added new functionality to improve the management and coordination of your manual and automated testing efforts. We have added additional test types to cover different automation approaches (REST API, FireCracker, xBot and more), additional execution options, and better ways to view and report results.

  • PractiTest JIRA Integration just got much stronger Based on our clients’ requests, we’re proud to present two major improvements to the JIRA integration:
    • Synchronise additional fields from JIRA to PractiTest, and take advantage of PractiTest advanced Filters and Dashboard for end to end visibility
      PractiTest is now allowing users to bring the information from additional fields in Jira when linking Issues and Requirements between the two systems. This means users will have all their important data in PractiTest, allowing them to generate end to end visibility of User Stories, Tests and Issues in PractiTest, with the help of our Advanced Filters and Flexible Dashboard and Reporting options. Read more about it here.

    • Fill out additional Jira fields while creating a ticket in PractiTest
      In order to make the reporting issues from PractiTest to Jira simpler and faster, we added the possibility to include more fields when reporting bugs into Jira from your PractiTest runs. For more details, go here.
  • Issue’s age information
    From now on, every issue in PractiTest will have a new field displaying its age. This measurement helps organizations to improve their bug management process by providing more visibility into the time it takes to take care of your issues. In addition to the field itself, we have deployed a Defect Age graph on the dashboard to get a better understanding of this metric in your projects.
