As we announced earlier this week, we’re dramatically speeding up development teams that rely on JIRA. test IO’s QA Service for JIRA plug-in connects JIRA Software users directly to our crowd of QA professionals worldwide.

One of the most valuable ways test IO’s QA Service for JIRA plug-in helps you saves time is by integrating user acceptance testing seamlessly into your development workflow. You’ll receive useful and detailed test results from our professional testers on-demand, right in the JIRA ticket or epic.

Based on a trigger you choose, like the end of a sprint, deployment, or status change of an issue, test IO automatically initiates a test cycle. First, an experienced tester reviews the test request for clarity. Then test IO matches testers based on the test’s requirements. These testers thoroughly examine the sections of app or software sections relevant to the release, as outlined in non-technical description in your epic or story. Details like test environment and device requirements come from presets you’ve chosen.

The result is a thorough, real-world examination of your app that shows you critical bugs that your development team or automation scripts are likely to miss: crashes, unanticipated user scenarios, and issues on devices that you don’t test internally.

Bugs that the testers find appear in your JIRA backlog and are linked to the epic, user story, or sprint. You can then review the detailed bug reports and feedback the testers have submitted. Selected recipients receive a summary of all the results by email.
