Integrating Testworthy with 3rd Party Applications - Jira, GitHub, and Azure

To keep up with global technology disruption, businesses rely on various applications and platforms to manage their operations, span multiple departments, and enable collaboration. As a leading test management software, Testworthy integrates seamlessly with widely used platforms like Jira, GitHub, and Azure. These integrations allow teams to centralize QA efforts, trace requirements, and manage defects effortlessly between tools.

In this blog, we’ll discuss how integrating Testworthy with third-party applications like Jira, Github, and Azure can enhance your software testing workflows.


Integrating with Jira for Enhanced Traceability

Jira is one of the most widely adopted project and issue-tracking tools, especially among agile software teams. Integrating Testworthy with Jira provides enhanced traceability between requirements, tests, and defects within a central repository. Some key benefits include:

• Tracing tests to user stories/requirements in Jira for impact analysis.

• Maintaining bi-directional linkage when requirements change.

• Avoiding duplication of QA efforts and ensuring synchronization

This can be achieved using Testworthy’s native integration with Jira. When you link a test case to a Jira item, Testworthy automatically creates traceability, which can be visualized via traceability reports. Any updates to the requirement in Jira are reflected in real-time in linked test cases.

Similarly, defects attached from Testworthy are automatically synced to raise tickets in Jira. Fields like summary, description, attachments, etc., are migrated to the Jira ticket for faster resolution. Testers can track the status of defect tickets within Testworthy itself via the linkage.

Such end-to-end traceability ensures teams have complete visibility into the impact of changes across the lifecycle.

Leveraging Azure for Seamless Bug Reporting

Azure, Microsoft’s premier cloud platform, is widely used by businesses to integrate advanced, secure cloud-based capabilities into their development and testing workflows. Testworthy makes it easy to incorporate, link, and manage Azure work items to test cases. The Azure integration feature offers significant advantages:

• QA Teams can link Azure work items to test cases in Testworthy.

• Test run data and results are automatically fed from Azure services into Testworthy for reporting.

• A full-suite, transparent, cloud-based test management solution is provided on a single, unified platform.

In this way, Testworthy can seamlessly scale software testing using Azure without creating any data silos. Through seamless connectivity between Azure and Testworthy, software testers can benefit from comprehensive traceability across different functions, features, and requirements.

GitHub Integration

Engineering teams rely heavily on GitHub for version control, branch management, and code collaboration. For development and software testing teams relying on GitHub, Testworthy delivers an integration solution that bakes quality right into your development and testing workflows:

• Issues in GitHub can be linked to test cases in Testworthy to track test coverage.

• Requirements integrated with Testworthy can be connected to GitHub issues.

• Linking issues to test cases leads to instantaneous test validation.

Testworthy and GitHub allow QA teams to ensure comprehensive testing every step of the way rather than just at release time. By connecting issues directly with linked test cases within Testworthy, QA teams and developers can easily track tasks, changes, bugs, and other software testing activities.

Linking issues directly to mapped requirements attains full stack traceability. Moreover, as issues queue up across different active touchpoints, Testworthy seamlessly links with GitHub to automatically prioritize QA efforts to the highest risk areas.

Bottom Line

Integrating software testing tools with complementary systems enables enterprises to achieve better ROI from their technology investments. As discussed, Testworthy interoperates natively with the most popular requirements, project management, version control and cloud platforms.

By tracing tests to upstream QA efforts and downstream defects, Testworthy provides end-to-end visibility even across tools. Its scalable architecture leverages Azure elasticity for optimizing test runs without capital lock-ins.

Such out-of-the-box integrations result in higher quality, speedier delivery and enhanced traceability for enterprise-class testing needs. Software testers spend less time configuring toolchains and more time creating business value.Experience the seamless integrations and unparalleled benefits of Testworthy – sign up for a free trial today.
