Attach Anything & Everything to Issues
Quickly add multiple screenshots and files to any JIRA issue using the Bonfire browser externsion. Use the "Next Screenshot" button to return to your web page and snap another screenshot. You can also drag and drop or use the multi-select file uploader to attach non-screenshot files.
The annotation tool has been completely rewritten making it quick and easy to communicate visually.
You can now:
- Move, resize and delete annotations
- Change the color of any annotation
- Blur with precision
Test Sessions and the Bonfire experience within JIRA has gotten a facelift. The browser extension has an updated look and feel, making it easier to find and share templates with your team.
Add Third Party Custom Fields
An "Advanced Fields" section of the issue creation tab is now presented when Bonfire detects any issue fields that aren't provided by JIRA itself.
For instance, here we see the Tempo "Customer Account" custom field.
Hide Fields on Templates
View only the fields that matter to you. Use the checkboxes on the template form to control field visibility.
Hidden fields will also apply for anyone using your shared template.
Specify Template for a Session
The test coordinator can now specify the template that everyone participating in the test session should use. Participants in the test session will have this template selected for them automatically when they join the test session
Test Sessions Fully Integrated with Your Issues
- Check the Test Session Status to find all the issues that still need to be tested.
- Configure your JIRA workflow to ensure all testing is complete before moving issues to the next step in your process.
- Capture environmental details automatically when bugs are raised with Bonfire.
Test Sessions in GreenHopper
Plan your Test Sessions while planning development work. Test Sessions and details display in-context on both GreenHopper Plan and Work boards, so it's easy to get an overview of how testing is going for any requirement.
Share & Join Sessions
Collaborate with teammates using Bonfire Test Sessions, the central forum in JIRA to track activity while testing a particular story or requirement. Anyone viewing the session can see who is participating, and you can find and join shared sessions from within JIRA or from within the browser extension.
Query Test Session Activity using JIRA Advanced Search
Use the Issue Navigator to search for all issues raised during a specific test session with the "Raised During" JQL clause. Aggregate results from a number of test sessions or compare the quality of releases over time.
Test Multiple Issues in a single Session
Teams with limited QA people may focus on testing only the high risk user stories. Create a test session which links to multiple issues - those high risk user stories - and focus on these. Of course this is isn't just for high risk user stories, pick any set of issues you wish.
You can also raise bugs as a sub-task of one of these related issues to keep track of the quality of individual user stories.
