Release Date: 2024-02-17

Summary: New Feature

  • Auto-Generate Test Case using QMetry Intelligence (Currently in Beta):
    Testers can now auto-generate functional test cases using QMetry Intelligence (QI) directly from the Story Page or the Test Case Module. Furthermore, testers can utilize QI to generate the test case description, pre-condition, and test steps in an existing test case, with options to either update the existing version or create a new version.
    Key Benefits:
    The auto-generation feature aims to expedite the test case authoring phase by quickly creating test cases with steps aligned with specified requirements. As a result, it effectively reduces the manual efforts required by testers, allowing them to focus more on test case execution and validation. This enhancement ultimately saves valuable time during the testing lifecycle.
    How It Works:
    The QI model extracts relevant details from either the story description or the user-provided description to generate modular functional test cases with adequate coverage, ensuring thorough validation of the acceptance criteria for the story. Testers can accept, modify, or reject the generated test cases before approving them for creation into the test case library. For optimal results, the story description must be clear and well-structured.
    Activation Instructions:
    To activate the 'Generate Test Cases with QI' feature for all QMetry users in QMetry-enabled projects, the Jira super administrator must enable it for the Jira instance

QMetry Test Management for Jira Cloud 4.8.0

Release Date: 2023-07-01

Summary: New Features, Enhancements & Bug Fixes

New Features

QMetry Intelligence

  • Introduced an AI-powered, innovative approach to assess the flakiness of test cases by calculating a "Flaky Score" derived from their execution history; this insightful feature empowers testers with an ability to identify test cases whose future execution status is nondeterministic. A flaky test case refers to one that exhibits non-deterministic behavior when executed repeatedly within the same code and environment, resulting in intermittent successes and failures. The crucial first step towards gaining control over flaky tests is identifying them. Flaky tests have the potential to slow down testing pipelines and erode confidence in testing processes. Today determining test case flakiness requires a manual comparison of test results from multiple runs, which is time-consuming. However, with QMetry Intelligence, this process is now automated, saving valuable time and effort for testers and developers. QA Managers can define and configure settings according to their specific testing processes for calculating the flaky score, ensuring its relevance to their testing methodologies.
  • Introducing the success rate for test cases, calculated based on their execution history, holds significant importance in the testing process. The success rate provides QA teams with a quantitative measure of the reliability and effectiveness of the test cases. The test case success rate is a crucial score for measuring test case execution performance, as a high success rate indicates a robust and dependable test case. On the other hand, a low success rate highlights potential issues or areas of improvement, signaling the need for further investigation and refinement.

Spanish and German Language Support

  • Users having their Jira language preference set to Español will see QTM4J in Spanish.
  • Users having their Jira language preference set to Deutsch will see QTM4J in German.

New Features on the Execution Screen

  • Introducing Bulk Start New Execution for Test Cases for the selected environment on the execution screen.
  • The Test Cycle > Test Cases tab and the execution screen now indicate the availability of a newer version of a test case besides the older linked version. Users will now have the option to sync the latest version of associated test cases individually or in bulk. This feature eliminates the need to manually unlink the older version and link the newer version of the test case for execution.

New Features on Test Cases

  • Introduced a new feature that allows testers to conveniently copy test case steps from an existing test case while creating or modifying a test case, using the option "Copy steps from existing test case".
  • Testers now have an additional capability to create parameters and corresponding values directly from the test case page, eliminating the need to always navigate to the configuration page.
  • Improvements to Test Case Import via Excel: Testers can now import test cases with parameterized steps using the Excel import feature. For scenarios where the parameters do not exist and, the user has the necessary permissions, the import process will automatically create the parameters.

Enhancement to Story Traceability

  • Bugs linked to a test case execution will be linked automatically under the 'Linked Issues' section of the Jira story related to the corresponding test case. Furthermore, a new configuration has been introduced in the project settings, allowing project administrators to manage the automatic linking of bugs to the Story and set the default relationship.

New Email Notifications

  • Assignee will receive an email notification for test cases, test cycles, or executions when assigned individually or in bulk.
  • Assignee & Reporter will receive email notifications for test cases, test cycles, test plans, or executions when the status is updated individually or in bulk.
  • Project Administrators can now enable email notifications on Assignee and Status changes.

QMetry Test Management for Jira Cloud 4.6.0

Release Date: 2022-12-25

Summary: New Feature and Bug Fixes

New Feature - Introducing Shareable Test Cases
In a project, multiple test cases share some common steps. QTM4J now allows testers to create shareable test cases with common test steps and reuse them into other test cases as steps. Any updates to the shareable test case are auto-synced in the associated test cases. This feature makes testers more productive by eliminating the need to author and maintain repeated test steps in multiple test cases. Here are the key characteristics of the shareable test cases:

  • Manage shareable test cases through a separate view within the test case module.

  • Create a shareable test case from an existing test case or independently from a separate new section.

  • Insert shareable test cases as steps into another test case of the same or cross-project to reuse common steps. Linking shareable test cases directly to a story or a test cycle for execution is not allowed.

  • Updates to the shareable test case for a linked version are auto-synced to associated test cases.

  • Sync the latest version of the shared test case directly from within the associated test cases.

  • A shareable test case displays the key, name and version of all the test cases using it to enable testers easily find the references.

  • During test execution, the test case containing shareable steps displays the steps as usual, along with a reference to the shared test cases.

  • Shareable test cases can have parameterized steps and will refer to the parameter values from the test cases reusing it. Defining parameter values directly on a shareable test case is not supported.

  • New import/reimport of test cases using shareable test case steps or independent shareable test cases is not supported.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that did not display the executed by value for some users in the exported execution summary reports.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented uploading QAF automation results when the metainfo.json did not contain a metadata group.
