Gurock today announced the release of TestRail 3.0, a new version of their web-based test management tool. The new version comes with an all-new reporting engine, a redesigned API and more integration options for bug and project management tools. According to Gurock, TestRail 3.0 introduces more than 100 new features, improvements and bug fixes and is available for new and existing customers as of today.
TestRail's new reporting engine introduces more than a dozen built-in reports to help teams answer important questions about their testing efforts. This includes reports to generate coverage statistics for requirements, test cases and defects as well as reports to compare the performance of specific test cases over time. Additional reports allow teams to gather and visualize statistics about the team's workload, to identify error-prone functional areas of projects and to produce summaries of their tests.
The new reporting engine also comes with functionality to schedule and share reports. This allows testing teams to automatically generate and email statistics to developers, the management team or customers. According to Gurock, it's now also easier for teams to customize and develop their own reports and integrate them into TestRail.
TestRail 3.0 also adds a new redesigned REST API. This API can be used to automate various parts of the application and to integrate automated testing tools such as Selenium. The new version also introduces improved support for bug and project management tools such as Rally, Assembla, Bitbucket, GitHub, JIRA and OnTime. Testers can now directly link test results and push new bug report to these tools:
- Rally test management
- Assembla test management
- Bitbucket test management
- GitHub test management
- JIRA test cases
- OnTime test cases
Gurock also implemented various additional improvements for the new version, such as full support for Microsoft's new web stack with Windows Server 2012, SQL Server 2012 and Internet Explorer 10. TestRail's new version also includes better support for mobile devices, adds more customization options and comes with improved navigation.
TestRail is used by software development teams and quality assurance departments to manage, organize and track their software testing efforts. TestRail is available as a web-based SaaS/cloud edition or can be installed on a local server. A free trial version of TestRail quality assurance software can be registered on Gurock's website.
