For anyone who has ever manually tested a web application, you know how much of a pain it can be to retrace your exact steps to reproduce a tricky bug. But that’s no longer the case when combining LogDigger and JIRA to do your testing.
LogDigger provides a browser extension and server application to make testing web applications infinitely easier by doing three things:
- Tracking usage
- Filing bugs [in JIRA]
- Capturing logs
LogDigger works like this..
Testing a web application
You (or your tester) add the plugin to your browser and a simple XML file to your web application (no code necessary). Then you enable and consent to tracking for the application or website you wish to test.
Then just start testing and LogDigger does the rest by tracing your steps for you.
Filing comprehensive bugs
This is the sexy bit… once you spot that tricky issue, just submit it via the browser plugin.
LogDigger automatically takes a screenshot of the page which you can crop and annotate. This is attached to the issue created in JIRA along with the issue details, the page and browser information, and a link to all the activity of your testing session.
For some Java, PHP and Python applications, LogDigger can even collect server logs for you.
Get back to it!
Using LogDigger with JIRA lets you file bugs quickly and get back to more testing.. a tester’s dream!
