Cons

Our organization needs to run test on weekly basis and we lost lot of time redacting them on the interface that can reject the input for any hidden reason.

Really slow to use, the integration with JIRA leads to data loss. Hard to link snapshot, zip and other precondition or result artifacts and access it on execution.

Zephyr really helped us work in a scaled agile way as well as integrating our automation framework.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Where did we expect Zephyr to do well - JIRA Integration Scaled Enterprise Agile - Automation execution - Global metrics - Tablet and mobile test execution and real time metrics What did leadership get - On the go metrics at group level and product level - Integration with Confluence for JIRA and Zephyr metrics - Reduced cost as man hours are reduced, because all QA activities can be done via one tool - 100% integration into all products

Pros

It allowed the entire project team to work together on all aspects of their testing within the context of their specific software releases, while keeping a global view. Using structured and freeform test execution cycles, and the ability to run manual or kick-off automated tests in the automation tool of our choice allowed greater scalability. All the results get updated in real time to dashboards...

Cons

There were some bugs found after major releases, but these were always turned around and resolved very quickly after reporting them. If we found areas that required new feature requests or enhancements, these are generally delivered in a 4 or 8 week cycle

Test Management System of Choice for our DevOps Journey!

Reviewed 3 years ago

The benefits are truly amazing! We can now "see," in real-time, the progress of all our testing and release pipelines. The integrations to other software development applications is excellent, via the API's or plug-ins. We can now quantitatively make release decisions, and assure upper management that the product we are pushing to production has been thoroughly tested.

Pros

Robust two-way synchronization with Jira. Automatically sync's with sprint stories and bugs. Ease of use with solid API integrations and plug-ins with other major release pipeline applications. Customer support and interactions have been outstanding. Zephyr has a Customer Advisory Board, which meets twice a year, to listen to, and respond to the industry. The product and team have advanced rapidly, allowing our organization to accelerate our DevOps initiative. Zephyr continues to be on the foreground of innovation, as seen by their latest release named "Maestro," their DevOps plugin that takes Zephyr to the next level, as a qualitative test management solution. Very satisfied with all aspects of the product and its future road-map.

Cons

The only con to Zephyr, is its ability to manage role-based securities. However, through an engagement with our top executives, and the senior executive team from Zephyr, they now have this concern vetted and will be working to incorporate this capability into a future release. Zephyr actively listens to its customers, so any (and I mean any) concerns you have, they truly listen and actively work to satisfy the need.

Used to work with Jira.... now you constantly can't login!

Reviewed a year ago

I have been a longtime Jira Capture user and at some point Zephyr replaced it. For a longtime it worked seamlessly... then all of a sudden we would get a constant "Invalid Login" when trying to login with Atlassian credentials. After contacting support several times I was told we had to create an API key. After going thru the pain... it would work for a week... then right when you urgently needed to take a screenshot it forgot the credentials and you are forced to create a new API key ... which takes over 15 minutes each time. Worked. Forgot credentials. Create key. Over and over. You have to pay for each user and after awhile it just got so frustrating it was no longer worth it. I wish Jira capture still was around. That worked flawlessly for years!

Pros

Integrated with Jira, allowed QA to easily capture screenshots

Cons

Cant login, login errors, can't use standard Atlassian credentials and forces you to create API keys, constantly forgets credentials but doesnt tell you until after you have filled out a full bug report so you end up losing all your work

Slow, buggy when integrated with Jira

Reviewed 2 months ago

Our organization needs to run test on weekly basis and we lost lot of time redacting them on the interface that can reject the input for any hidden reason. Navigating through collections of test was buggy and frustrating.

Pros

- few steps to create and execute tests - few boilerplate jira objects (execution are on zephyr side, not on jira side) - the "blocked" status

Cons

- Really slow to use, the integration with JIRA leads to data loss - Hard to link snapshot, zip and other precondition or result artifacts and access it on execution

The ease of use and the look of the overall system.

Good functionality, but the it's not so reliable.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I worked mostly with Jira Plugin and it's pretty easy, obvious software, although Zephyr Teams & Enterprise more powerful. Easy to monitor testing process, schedule testing and making adjustments.

Cons

Even it's a testing tool and team should know everything about quality - they push releases not fully checked, so we tired to have problems one-days a release.

Vendor response

Test Management & Execution Software

Reviewed 3 years ago

Creation and execution of test cases/test steps.

Pros

It is integrated with JIRA which allows us to associate the test cases and execution with our sprints and user stories which are located in JIRA. It is very easy to associate a test cases to various sprints. The tool provides visualization of where the test case is in our process. The reporting of the test cases is great as well. It provides visualization of the # of passes and failures within a given sprint. It also provides the ability to import test cases/steps from an excel spreadsheet.

Cons

It seems like a lot of the information we have to enter for each step within a test case is very repetitive. I have not found a way yet where you can clone the information from a previous step so we do not have to enter the same information over and over again.

Vendor response

hello, Thank you for your response and Review. We appreciate your feedback and love hearing from our customers, so we can gauge what our customers are thinking. Please reach out to Matthew.King@getzephyr.com to learn more about the tool and the cloning options we have availability. Thanks much

Nice product but the worst support

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

easy to create a test plan and traceability between Stories and Task. Easy to execute test cases and monitor daily test executions . Also, you can assign test cases to testers and Tracks bugs vs Test iterations

Cons

it is supposed to be a Testing tool, but... every release ( 1 month approx) is a pain, Always you will find a problem and not able to use Zephyr for 3 / 4 days, Looks like a testing tool, does not have a tester to test it? They do not have a Sanity Check to make sure to run a Smoke test and see how is Production. So disappoint it with the Roll out releases and support. The functionality looks right but... they need to fight for the great quality.
