The Atlassian team is proud to present Atlassian Bonfire 1.4! In this release, we introduce tags for session notes.
Highlights of this release:
Atlassian Bonfire 1.4 includes updates to the JIRA server plugin, as well as major updates to client browsers. All browser extensions will need to be upgraded by visiting the "Get Bonfire" page from your JIRA instance after the server plugin is upgraded. For more information on upgrades, check out our Capture for JIRA Upgrade Guide.
Tags in session notes allow testers a quick and easy way to flag certain information during testing. With tags, you can raise a question, highlight a follow up, note down any key assumptions you took, or record any other ideas that you may want to refer to later.
Out of the box, Bonfire support these four tags. Use them simply by including (#?, #f, #! or #i) in your notes.
With tagged notes, you can come back to them and work through them. When you're done, simply check them off to mark them as done. That way, you can focus on the things that you need to follow up after your test session.
Bonfire 1.4 also introduces new views for you to focus on. Under your user profile screen, you now get a view of all your test sessions, as well as notes that you have raised in your test sessions.
With this release, Bonfire allows you to filter your session down to particular tags: What are the questions left unanswered from the test session? What assumptions have been made? Filtering also allows you to see only the defects found in the test session.
Notes are editable too. To edit a note, simply click on it anywhere you see one, and you can edit it right away.
We love to hear from you. To give us feedback, you can fill in the feedback form on any test sessions tab in JIRA.
