test IO Launches QA Service for Jira
September 13, 2017
Service for Jirais a service that connects Jira Software users directly
to QA professionals worldwide who test features, verify fixes, and
ensure that software works on every device -- dramatically speeding
releases for fast-moving development teams that rely on Jira. test IO’s
QA Service for Jira works with test IO’s crowdtesting platform and is
available today as an app on the Atlassian Marketplace.
About 70% of test IO’s customers use Jira.
As software teams embrace DevOps principles to push updates to
production more frequently, they require faster testing and verification
of changes to their code. Crowdtesting meets this need by connecting
teams to professional testers who can quickly and reliably test software
changes, but many development teams don’t want to add new tools to an
already complicated stack. test IO has solved this problem by bringing
the power and flexibility of crowdtesting directly to Jira Software.
Without leaving the Jira Software
interface, development and QA teams will be able to:
•Run acceptances tests of user
stories and epics. test IO’s professional testers interpret the
non-technical language of stories and epics, removing the need to
develop formal test cases and facilitating real-world feedback from
•Verify fixes. Nothing slows
developers more than verifying changes to code, especially UI fixes that
affect multiple platforms or devices. test IO’s crowdtesters can act
automatically as part of a Jira Software workflow process, verifying and
reporting fixes using screencasts and retaining records in Jira
•Reproduce hard-to-find bugs.
Development teams fear and loathe “Heisenbugs” that seem to wink in and
out of existence. With a click of a button, test IO’s crowdtesters will
reproduce bugs while providing precise environmental information and
screencasts, so developers can focus on coding.
Teams can use test IO’s Testflow API to trigger preconfigured tests via
Bamboo and create customized workflows through Jira Software.
Test IO’s crowdtesters interact with the test IO platform, which
synchronizes communication with the Jira Software Cloud or Server
instance, so there are no additional accounts to provision or security
test IO, it’s as though Jira Software came complete with a thorough QA
team as well as an extensive device lab,” said Damon Lanphear, CTO of
98point6, a Seattle-based rapidly growing healthcare technology company.
“test IO has become a natural extension of our test automation strategy,
enabling our development team to stay focused on delivering features for
our patients. They allow us to stay lean while we build our product and
continually ship on iOS, Android, and web.”
“The push for developer-driven automation in software teams these days
masks the reality that a lot of development time isn’t spent designing
and coding; it’s spent checking and verifying,” said Philip Soffer, CEO
of test IO. “We help teams win back valuable development hours per week,
and we can do it without them leaving the Atlassian tools they love, or
changing their work processes.”
