SpiraTest Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about SpiraTest's features:

Dave F.

Way better than Excel, Testuff, and other lower price point Test Management tools.

2017-10-18

Test data management without the risk of irreversible or unaudited changes.

Pros

So glad the all tests with tests steps view was added (Table view) Customisable reports are very useful once configured/scripted correctly (although the interface/mechanism is too complex for non-developers/non-technical people.

Cons

Data imported to the Excel template via the Excel add-on should arrive in a format that could be immediately exported back to Spira.

Low Priced tool, value for money.

2012-10-19

In all, the tool is almost there on top, but need some UI revamp which we are hoping in V4.0.

Pros

Good and simple UI, Rich features

Cons

Should have good reporting capabilities- Graphical reporting - (pie charts, bar graphs) Test case management is not very intuitive- Cut, copy and paste, move test cases across the test case folders, test sets is not easy Incident Management - multiple tabs are not too user friendly

Spira Test Version v2.1 has many functionalities of a Robust Testing Tool.

2009-04-20

It would be good to see a few more features and clean up the UI to be able to have a better feeling of the projects you are currently working on.

Pros

. - Integrated with third party software: Available Jira Integration - Available to Import test cases from excel with provided SpiraTestImporterTemplate.xls - Highlights changes to requirements and test cases in History - Changes can trigger e-mail alerts or notification of users set up. - Updates are available for download in the website. - Monitor Environment and Resource Usage: Available in Application event logs from server to administrator - Can add attachments to requirements and test cases, but need to click on it to open it and the description is an alt tag to the name of file

Cons

. - Need to update installation files (*.config) for each user that is using the tool. User setup and access process is too long.

Very simple tool that works well within our organisation

2018-02-04

The major benefit was the introduction of formalised test management processes that inherently increase the capability maturity of our organisation.

Pros

The requirement management is suitable and integrates well with test management and incident management (defects).

Cons

Custom Reporting would be nice and the reports in general need work; as does the exporting of graphs (which are all black).

It's nice, obviously could use some improvements but their team is always putting out updates and new content. Overall I think it's worth it to have.

Pros

SpiraTest Review.

2013-10-29

This is a fantastic piece of software, it was easy to put in place on our own server, has run faultlessly since its initial setup and any problems we encountered were taken care of by Inflectra's support very quickly.

Pros

allows multiple ways to setup tests to match different workflows. provides a very good reporting overview to help clarify what is going on with testing.

Cons

integration with bug tracking systems could be easier to get working and provide a better feature set, but this is not the end of the world as for what we want it works fine.

Excellent Product with Very Low Cost (ownership) backed by Top of the line Support.

2012-06-12

And this does all of those with good QA test management. This may be our product of choice.

Pros

Excellent integration to bug tracking tools. Great integration with automation testing for our needs - web, api as well as shell scripts.

Cons

In this budget range their reporting features are more than what we could expect (very good), though few additional improvements may be made.

SpiraTest compares very well to other well known project management applications.

2008-10-29

SpiraTest beats Quality Center in the ability to create different workflows for multiple incident types, and workflow customization is based on a simple interface rather than on VBScript.

Pros

- Fantastic ease of use once you get used to the workflow paradigm (change status, verify newly required fields, then update)

Cons

- mass updating of multiple artifacts (change all incidents with this type to that type) - update workflow transitions by user type instead of altering each transition

Easy to integrate with our workflow

I also like SpiraTest API so I can implement some custom features with my other tools.

Pros

Jira) so it's easy to integrate with our current workflow.

Cons

There is no way to customize the "Execute" under tools. For the Automated test sets, I hope to pop up the message to notify users the schedule of the automated testing for those test sets.

Spiratest is the prefect monitoring solution for our testing needs

2016-08-17

The easy to use presentation, the report generation, the overall test structure of using a Test Catalog (Test Scenario) to built specific group of sequential test cases (Test Sets) help me create the proper tracking for mastering of End-to-End Test Scenario (reusing single test cases as modular steps)

Pros

Easy to use and personalize dashboards

Cons

Addon (Excel / Word) not in synch with the version which cause a lot of rework. Upload/Download from Excel is only available at version 4.0 but doesn't work with the version 5.0 for Test Cases/Test Sets, etc...
