"My recent conversation with an auditor started with him selecting a Jira story ticket and asking me to walk him through our testing process, presenting evidence along the way. From the ticket, I clicked the test case link which opened TestRail. I was then able to show the evidence required. The evidence proved that no new code goes out to production without being subjected to testing in multiple environments and on multiple browser types. The auditor was very happy."

Get Full Control Of Your Test Management

As a purpose-built test management tool, TestRail makes it easier for your team to speed up test cycles, reduce risk, and release faster, while giving your team a single source of truth for QA.

Organize reusable test cases in a centralized folder-based repository. Create custom test case templates and fields to design more productive workflows. Centralization makes it easy to track your testing as a whole no matter what kind of testing you do — including automated tests and results.

That means you can get complete control over your team’s QA workflows without flooding your Jira instance with custom issue types or fields or slowing Jira down for the rest of your users.

Expand Your User Story Coverage

Expand coverage by linking requirements. Reduce defect leakage, find gaps in requirements, and ensure your test cases are actually covering your application’s features and functionality.

With TestRail’s Jira integration, you can link test cases to user stories, epics, or any other kind of Jira issue to make it clear exactly which requirement is being tested. And if multiple test cases cover the same user story, you can link all of them at once time simply by bulk editing test cases in TestRail.

Create new test cases and view linked tests from Jira issues to understand coverage in a glance. Or, generate a test coverage report for all of the user stories in a given sprint, epic, or release with the click of a button.

Build End-to-End Traceability

Keep track of and record the history of your testing. Link requirements to test cases, test results, and defects to trace where work originates right through to delivery.

Report on linked test artifacts from all types of testing, including results from test automation, with one click to manage the scope of your testing, reduce bugs, and minimize risk.

Leverage the TestRail Jira integration to meet compliance requirements and understand the riskiness of release in real-time.

Jira App

The TestRail Jira App gives your team visibility into TestRail test data and metrics from within Jira. Gain test visibility in Jira on issues, bugs, and requirements that were linked with test artifacts using TestRail’s integration for Jira.

Report Bugs and Link Defects

Link test results to defects or push bug reports directly to Jira as they are discovered without ever having to leave TestRail. When your team pushes bug reports they create a new issue in Jira that automatically links the bug to TestRail. The new issue will automatically populate with details and comments made in TestRail during testing.

Custom User Management

Customize TestRail’s access control for your needs regardless of user roles in Jira. TestRail’s roles and assignments system allow you to customize and extend permissions of individual users and groups globally and on more granular levels.

Integrate with Jira Cloud, Server, and Data Center

Easily integrate with any Jira edition and version. Link test cases to issues and bug reports to test results within TestRail to automatically create traceability.
