AscentialTest is gradually extending its support for the application and test lifecycle.
The Test Plan Editor allows describing and organizing requirements as a plan, list, or scenario. It creates links between manual or automated tests, and data stored in AscentialTest tables.
- Add tests to plans by drag and drop
- Link test cases with data in just a few clicks
- Locate the tests with a query tool, thanks to test plan attributes.
- Automatically generate test plans from data tables
- Choose the number of times for which the same test will be repeated
- Group multiple test plans into a suite to run them
AscentialTest manages the relationship between test results and defects.
It uses Jira for defect tracking.
A failure can be associated with a defect. In this case, when the problem is solved, a notification is sent to have testers execute the test again.
- Create a defect
- Assign a test to a defect
- Invite to create tickets for failed tests
- Check defects statuses
- Invite to re-run the tests when problems are fixed
- Invite to close defects for "successful" tests
- Edit the status and details of a defect
Through integration with versioning tools such as Subversion (SVN), AscentialTest provides collaborative capabilities to help large teams manage their tests.
- Check-in / check-out objects in SVN
- Merge files with the built-in merge utility
- Review the project history
- Restore earlier versions
Managing Test Execution
Test sets help managing the execution of the tests and their results and generates reports.
Depending on how your company handles tests and deliveries, a test set can be a build, a test cycle, a project, and so on.
- Create a test Set combining automated and manual tests.
- Centralize test results in a database.
- Document the reasons why tests blocked or failed.
- Comment tests to explain their results.
- Generate test reports in various formats (PDF, HTML, EXCEL, RTF, TXT,TIF).
- Automatically send results by email.
- View results in real time on the AscentialTest web portal.
- Attach any type of document to the results.
- Run tests locally, remotely or on several machines.
- Schedule test execution with the "Test Scheduler."
You can use the command-line execution option to implement AscentialTest with continuous integration tools, such as Jenkins or TFS. You will be able to:
- Execute plans, suites, or test sets from the command line.
- Generate Reports after Command Line execution
