Our client for this project was a renowned software development company with over 40 products and a global presence with a focus on B2B customers. We have completed several other projects for this client and were excited to contribute to another project, which was testing a well-known test management tool.
The client’s product for this project, a test management tool, was designed to be integrated with Jira and other issue tracking applications. After a series of updates, the client needed to make sure that the updated version of the product could be released and retained all of the functionality users had come to expect. Specifically, our scope of tasks included:
- Verifying the existing functionality
- Checking the presence of all UI elements
- Making sure that each UI element delivers the anticipated response
- Testing the compatibility of the solution with different platforms
- Confirming the correct localization of the product in four new languages
- Ensuring proper integration of the solution with third-party tools
The major challenge on this project was connected within its timeline constraints. For example, our team had to create a large number of test cases (200+) from scratch in limited time. Another challenge was to plan and test all the possible integrations of the product with third-party solutions.
Having collaborated with the client on multiple projects in the past, we were able to build effective collaboration from the start within time constraints. We appreciated the availability of comprehensive documentation that allowed us to quickly get the hang of the features that needed to be tested.
We started by enhancing the existing test suite, making sure that every possible feature of the product is covered by our testing efforts. Then we moved on to following our initial test plan. We also paid special attention to all the possible integrations of the product with third-party services to ensure the correct operation of the solution across all potential combinations.
The team for this project consisted of four manual QAs and one part-time QA lead. The types of testing we performed included:
- Smoke testing
- UI/UX testing
- Functional testing
- Confirmation testing
- Cross-browser testing
Through weekly meetings with the project stakeholders and the development team, we achieved complete transparency and were able to quickly remove any roadblocks and get timely feedback to move forward with the project.
