Ascential ALM

Zeenyx continues to build support for Application Life-cycle Management and Test Management into AscentialTest which is designed to make it easy to integrate test plans with test data, manual execution instructions and automated tests. AscentialTest provides features to manage test plans, test cases, test data, test execution, test results and defects.


Test Planning:

Test Planning


The Test Plan Editor is a planning tool used to describe test requirements in outline, list or scenario form. It provides links to manual and automated tests and to test data stored in built-in data tables.

    GreenCheck Link tests to plans via drag and drop
    GreenCheck Link test requirements with test data by point and click
    GreenCheck Test plan attributes provide the ability to locate tests using a powerful query tool
    GreenCheck Automatically generate test plans from test data tables
    GreenCheck Specify number of iterations to repeat tests n times
    GreenCheck Group test plans into suites for execution


Defect Tracking:

AscentialTest is integrated with Jira for defect tracking to provide a way to manage the relationship between test results and defects.

Defect Tab

Failures can be associated with defects so that testers will be notified when defects have been fixed and ready for re-testing.

Defects tab

    GreenCheck Create a defect
    GreenCheck Assign a test to a defect
    GreenCheck Get prompted to create defects for failed tests
    GreenCheck Check the current status of a defect
    GreenCheck Get prompted to re-run tests as defects are fixed
    GreenCheck Get prompted to close defects for ‘passed’ tests
    GreenCheck Access a defect to modify status and details

Version Control:

SVN Integration

AscentialTest offers several collaboration features by integrating seamlessly with other software development tools. By integrating with version control systems like Subversion (SVN), large teams can contribute to the test development effort. Integration with GIT and TFS will also be offered in the near future.

    GreenCheck Check out/check in components to SVN repository
    GreenCheck Merge files with integrated merge utility
    GreenCheck Review project history
    GreenCheck Restore to previous revision

Test Execution Management:

Test Set

Test Sets provide test execution management and reporting. A Test Set may be created for a build, a sprint, a test cycle or a project, depending upon how your organization tests and delivers software. Test Sets help manage test results.

    GreenCheck Combine automated and manual tests within a Test Set
    GreenCheck Manage test results in a centralized database
    GreenCheck Indicate and specify reasons for blocked and failed tests
    GreenCheck Annotate Test Set to explain test results
    GreenCheck Generate and export reports to PDF, HTML, EXCEL, RTF, TXT or TIF formats
    GreenCheck Email results automatically
    GreenCheck View real-time results in web portal
    GreenCheck Attach documents of any type to results
