JIRA with Trello™ integration – we did it, and it’s called Trello™ Sync

99% of what we do is based on our customers needs (discovered during dedicated development work carried out). There was a need to find a user-friendly frontend to inform people outside of JIRA on what level of commitment the project was. We have provided the opportunity for all issues set in specific JIRA filters to be now synchronized with Trello board, in any manner. The add-on created by us that provides this kind of solution is called: Trello™ Sync.

This whole idea of Trello™ Sync is very simple but it solves very common problems:

A revolutionary frontend for JIRA, specifically geared towards business

Whilst we have been working on customer assignments, we often receive queries in regards to the simplification of JIRA in terms of use as well as making it more business oriented. That is a natural consequence of an ever increasing number of JIRA users outside IT departments. Hence, our assumption based on this, was that a new frontend for JIRA was required.

Currently the most accepted method of organizing issues is Kanban board.

Kanban board

Where all issues are set in columns presenting the order of workflow. In this particular example: to do, in progress and done. It is not hard to guess ... Read More

TestFLO: How to integrate test cases with requirements and defects?

TestFLO for JIRA is the only software that enables smooth passage from test cases to integrated requirements and defects. What does that mean? To put it simply, test cases are created on the basis of certain requirements. That process includes creating a test specification and a test plan. Test cases are then used to prepare a list of defects. The teams we’ve worked with reported problems with a smooth transition between individual stages. That’s why in this video we explain how to integrate test cases with requirements and defects and how to use broad traceability metrics.

TestFLO: Reusable repository of test cases

One of the most often used JIRA test management software is TestFLO. During test management it’s often necessary to run the same test cases repeatedly.

We have created ‘Reusable Repository of Test Cases’ that you can enable for each project separately. In this video we explain how to use this functionality, and how to create the specification of a single test case.

Increasingly more companies are ordering projects to be completed the Agile way. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind that Agile methodology is a set of best practices in IT project management – not the sole recipe for the successful implementation of a project.

So it worth to ask yourself the questions:

  • How should the contract for the project in Agile look like?
  • What aspects of the contract should be thoroughly considered?
  • What are key success factors of an Agile project?
How should the contract for the project ... Read More
