Gurock Software announced the release of TestRail 2.2, a new version of their web-based test management software. TestRail helps software development teams and QA departments to efficiently manage, track and organize their software testing efforts. TestRail 2.2 introduces improved issue tracker integration and comes with full support for Jira, FogBugz, Bugzilla and other tools.
The new TestRail release makes it easier to work with bug and issue tracking tools and integrates the test management software with popular third-party applications. While TestRail can already be integrated with almost any web-based bug tracking and project management solution, the new defect plugins improve the work flow of testers considerably as they don't need to leave the application to accomplish common tasks. TestRail 2.2 ships with ready-to-use defect plugins for Jira, FogBugz, Bugzilla, Trac, YouTrack and Gemini.
The improved integration support allows testers to push bug reports from TestRail to third-party issue tracking tools while reusing the entered test results and test case details. Testers can now also look up bug reports, issue details and defect statuses in TestRail without having to access the bug tracking tool. TestRail's defect plugins make use of issue trackers' APIs to implement a sophisticated and customizable integration. Gurock plans to offer defect plugins for additional third-party applications in the future and customers can build their own scripts to integrate custom solutions.
TestRail is installed directly on a customer's server or can be hosted online with most hosting providers. The software can be purchased for $239 (US) per user, with additional discounts available for multi-user packs. A free fully-functional trial of TestRail (either hosted or downloaded) and an extensive product tour can be found on Gurock's website.
