AscentialTest Enterprise Features

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Ascential Enterprise Edition extends the feature set of the Standard Edition to create a full featured testing solution to support small and large teams. This document provides a brief description of each of the following features:

  • Version Control integration
  • Centralized database storage and access for test results
  • Test Results Portal
  • Defect Tracking Integration

Version Control Integration

Version control is an important component for small and large teams alike to ensure the integrity of all of the shared test assets including test plans, manual and automated tests and test data. Subversion (SVN) integration makes it easy to check out, view and merge differences and check in files without leaving the AscentialTest environment. Support for TFS Version Control will be available soon.

Centralized Results Database

By storing test results in a centralized database, the task of running tests can be distributed to various team members and across many locations and computers. Reports and metrics can then be generated for the entire project regardless of when and where the tests have been executed.

Test Results Portal

There are many team members who require access to test results and metrics but who may not have AscentialTest installed on their workstations. The Test Results Portal is an IIS Intranet application that provides the ability for anyone on the team to generate reports using their favorite browser. There is no need to generate or email reports to project leads or managers when the portal is in place because everyone on the team can view the most recent status of a project. The portal also provides a convenient way for testers to check the progress of their test runs remotely with up to the minute results.

Defect Tracking Integration

By integrating tightly with Jira’s Defect Tracking module, users can manage the relationship between test results and Jira issues directly in AscentialTest, saving time tracking down issues. The relationship between test results and defect status is clearly depicted in the test execution module so that users can track and manage defects quickly and easily.

AscentialTest’s integration with Jira provides the following features:

  • Create a new defect
  • Assign a test to an existing defect
  • Remove a test from a defect
  • Check the current status of a defect
  • Access a defect to modify status and details
  • Mark tests for execution based on defect status and test result
  • Locate failed tests which require defects to be created

Support for TFS Defect Tracking will be available soon.
