Top 12 Best Jira Test Management Tools (2022)

Summary: In this guide we are presenting various top & some of the best Jira test management and best Jira test case management tools. Simply try some of these tools and then choose the one that works best for your team.

When choosing a new Jira test management tool for your team, there are a couple of important aspects you should consider. The best Jira test management tool for your team should be easy to use, should provide powerful test case management features, it ideally also supports test automation & exploratory testing, and it should come with a productive and fast user interface.

Of course, it also needs to feature great Jira integration so it works with your team's workflow! But what does great Jira integration mean? There are basically two types of Jira test management tools:

  • Jira-only add-ons that use Jira issues for test cases
  • Full test management tools with great Jira integration

Both options have advantages and disadvantages and we recommend trying tools of both types. You can also learn more about pros and cons in our article How to Write Test Cases in Jira. In the following list we are including full test management tools with Jira integration, as well as Jira-only test case management add-ons, so you can try both.
