The response to Zephyr for JIRA has been amazing! We appreciate all of the feedback we’ve been getting from everyone who has been evaluating the product. With the release of Zephyr for JIRA 1.1 we are pleased to announce new customer requested features and limited time introductory pricing.
NEW FEATURES IN v1.1
1. Ability to clone entire test cycles:
You can now clone an existing test cycle and do so very easily. Cloning essentially copies an existing test cycle and all the tests that it contains. It zeroes out all execution status, comments, attachments and defects filed. This is a great way to very quickly set up a test cycle based on planning that was previously done and is a great time saver.
2. Linking test execution to defects:
When executing tests and creating a new defect (or an existing one is associated to this test execution), a remote link is created in that particular defect under the “Links” section. It shows the test with a link to this execution, the test cycle it was a part of and its current test execution status. This allows developers to instantly get a sense of which and how many tests are being blocked by this defect as well as the latest status of the execution once a fix has been applied.
3. Support for PostgreSQL and SQLServer 2008:
We are now adding support for PostgreSQL and SQLSever 2008 database support to the existing HSQL, MySQL and Oracle databases that Zephyr for JIRA supported.
Upgrade and installation of the new version is simple enough to do right from JIRA’s Universal Plugin Manager.
As a way to show our appreciation to all of you that have evaluated Zephyr for JIRA, we’re providing a whopping 50% introductory discount to the purchase of Zephyr for JIRA licenses. We’re not quite sure how long we’ll keep this discount in place so its definitely worth jumping in now!
