Bulk Issue Editing

Testmo makes it easy to link to your issues in Jira, GitHub, GitLab, Redmine, YouTrack and many other issue tracking tools. For example, you can link your test cases, test results, runs, automation, milestones and exploratory sessions to issues. You can then directly reference bug reports, user stories, feature requests, sprints and other tasks.

With this week's update we are adding bulk issue editing to test cases, test runs and exploratory sessions in Testmo. This allows you to quickly assign the same issues to many test cases at once, or reference the same user stories or sprints from test runs and sessions. Simply use the existing bulk editing dialogs and select the Issues field to assign the same issues to multiple cases, runs and sessions.

Jira Issue View Improvements

Testmo comes with a best-in-class Jira Cloud integration to link, push and lookup Jira issues with Jira's native issue dialog. Additionally you can view linked Testmo test results, cases, runs, milestones and more directly from the relevant issue pages inside Jira. Our Jira add-on is distributed as an additional free add-on that you can install from the official Atlassian Marketplace and configure in Testmo under Admin > Integrations.

A popular feature request we've received from customers is to also show the latest status and recent test results for linked test cases in Jira. So with the new update we are now directly rendering the latest status next to all linked cases. And you can now expand a test case to show all recent test results. Additionally you can also navigate to all linked results in Testmo if you want to see all relevant result details such as notes or attached screenshots.

Better Issue Reporting

For test runs, milestones and automation runs Testmo provides useful issue reports to see all issues linked during test design and test execution, along with the current issue status for API-based integrations (e.g. Jira, GitHub and GitLab). The issue reports can be accessed via the tabs directly from the run and milestone pages.

With the new update we are including various improvements for our issue report in Testmo. First we've adjusted the table rendering to support longer issue IDs and made the issue tables responsive to adjust to the browser window size now. For issues linked from test cases we are also showing the latest status now, so it is easier to see the test coverage and status for issues.

More Improvements in Testmo

We've also added various other improvements and smaller new features to Testmo since last month's major reporting & PDF update. You can always learn more about all the new changes in Testmo in our up-to-date product changelog and we've included a few feature highlights below.

  • Open search results in separate browser tabs: When using the test (case) search from runs and repositories, you can now also quickly open multiple tests/cases in separate browser tabs. To do this, you can either right-click results or use Ctrl+Click to open them in new tabs, or you can select tests/cases with the keyboard and press Ctrl+Enter.

  • Separate test step editing improvements: When working with separate test steps in the test case add & edit dialog, it is now easier to add additional test steps. The Add step keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+E) also automatically focuses new steps now and supports test cases with multiple step fields.

  • Rendering of longer folder & case names: With Testmo's new update we are now rendering longer folder and test case names on the repository and test run pages. The folder tree on the left also shows longer folder names and supports right-click for its context menu now. As an additional bonus we are including the number of test cases for the current folder & filter result next to the selected group name.

  • Onboarding tour and permission hints: For users new to Testmo we are including a new onboarding tour in new trial accounts to learn about Testmo's main concepts. Additionally we are also including additional repository and permission hints for new projects in Testmo to address common permission questions.
