Simple Test Plans
Simple plans is the sweet spot between a complex QA solution and a simple test document.
Simple Test Plan is available in the project sidebar for all of your Jira Projects. The application is made up of two main parts
Test Plans - Documents that describe how to test various features in your application. Each plan contains a number of test cases with testing steps and expected results
Test Runs - Records of a particular manual testing session. Test runs allow a tester to execute one ore more test plans and record testing results. A test run can be associated with a Jira ticket or a particular release
Creating a Plan
Click the "Edit" button next to a test plan or click the "New Test Plan" button to open up the test plan editor.
This editor is structured like a document and allows you to define the testing plan for a particular feature. Use the text boxes to define test cases and their associated steps and expected results.
If you need to re-order the steps or test cases just drag and drop the handles on the left hand side.
Creating a new Test Run
Click the "New Test Run" or "Run Plan" button to begin a testing session.
Each session can run one of more Test Plans and it's possible to choose individual test cases to include in the run. You might select every plan when performing a large release to do full regression testing or you might want to test a single feature.
From this screen you can associate the test run with a particular Jira release or a Jira ticket.
Running the Test Plan
On the next screen a tester can record the results of each step in the selected test cases for the run. For each step you have the option of Pass, Skip or Fail and can record some detailed notes and screenshots about the test.
Test Run Reports
After submitting the Test Run a report will be created that can be exported or printed. The report summary displays
Who executed the test run
What date / time it was submitted
The number of passed, skipped and failed tests
The linked Jira issues and releases.
You can use the View Settings button to customise the report to view any screenshots or notes collected during the testing.
