SpiraTest Feature Reviews

Alejandra Gonzalez

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

2009-04-20

A concern is the security when using Jira integration, I don't think we need to personalize and configure every bit of the tool specially in installation files adding sensitive information should be left optional (like in other project settings).

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.

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.

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.

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

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

(Human Resources company, 501-1000 employees)

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).

Great value for money software with fantastic support

2018-04-11

Pros

It was already in use when i joined the company and i found it easy to use and feature rich. We use e seperate project for each or our customers & we can give them access to their own project to track defects during UAT.

Cons

Reports and workflows restricted to individual projects which gets really frustrating unless all work is done in a single project.

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.

Go ahead and give it a try. It is easy to learn quickly if you used any other test software before. You will know quickly if the program will meet your needs. Integrations can be a bit challenging, but the difficulies are really almost always with the OTHER end.

Spira Hosted Solution

2016-12-05

We were always looking out for a test repository that can help the team in sharing test assets and also produce reports. SPIRA lets us do both.

Pros

Ease of use and it's setup

Cons

Excel functionality to export test cases needs an improvement as we cannot export only a limited set of test cases.

Worth the money ;-)

2011-06-29

It would be nice to have a forum/wiki on your website, where people can exchange knowledge or problems with other users.

Pros

quite easy to create testcases management of releases is a good feature interfaces between ldap and jira work well clear structure (by folders) of testcases clear notion of testing progress good export features (ecxel, word, html) support is very fast, competent and friendly

Cons

If you comment on an issue that has already been synchronized to jira, this comment is not submitted to jira (it only works from jira to spiratest) Error messages within the windows event viewer are not easy to understand.

Great product at the price and brilliant support

2009-10-16

I'll certainly remember SpiraTest and consider it the next time I find myself going into a team that doesn't have a test management tool in place.

Pros

- Good integration with other tools provided by add-ons and the web service

Cons

- As a TD/QC user for 10 years I do miss some features, and the UI isn't as 'polished'.

Overall, SpiraTest gets a 9 out of 10 for its reach functionality and ease to use.

2009-06-12

Overall, SpiraTest gets a 9 out of 10 for its reach functionality and ease to use. 9 because there also is room for improvement and because, even though we consider it to be the best tool that fits our needs, we would have wanted functionality that allows us to reuse test cases easily.

Pros

Very good reporting options, migration options and e-mail notification options.

Cons

It is not possible to use test cases from one project to another, even though some functionality can be common. However, this does not happen in all the companies, only a few might need to use the same test cases when testing two projects with common functionality.

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...
