JIRA can be integrated with any of the following test case managers:

Table of Contents


ApTest Manager

Pitch: Affordable test management for software and hardware QA projects to improve consistency, organization, and control throughout the testing process.
Integration: Uses the JIRA SOAP API to automatically populate a new bug with information from the execution of a test and links the test execution to the associated JIRA issue. Integration module is included at no charge - see the ApTest/JIRA FAQ entry for details.

More details on Aptest Manager integration here.

Borland Silk

Pitch: The Go2Group JaS Plugin allows collaboration between Atlassian's JIRA issue management system and Borland's SilkCentral test case tool.
Integration: When editing an issue, JIRA will display a list of available Silk test cases in the custom field called SilkTestCases. Select one or more test cases to associate with the issue. When viewing an issue, JIRA will display information about each associated test case in an issue tab panel.

More details on Borland Silk integration here.

Enterprise Tester

Enterprise Tester is a fully integrated, web-based test management solution, which provides a world-first integration with two award winning products; Sparx Systems' Enterprise Architect and Atlassian's JIRA. The solution, which derives test cases from UML models and allows test management, has been developed for use both as part of this integrated toolset and as a stand-alone tool, facilitating traceability from UML requirements through to test cases and defects.

Pitch: QaTraq is the world's most popular test management tool. QaTraq provides a solid foundation for teams to create and update scripts, cases and case results, with instant access to a variety of reports, improving visibility of your testing and pin-pointing test case execution progress.
Integration: No direct integration, but you can enter the URL for one or more JIRA bugs directly in the test case.

More details on QaTraq integration here.


Pitch: QMetry is a comprehensive Test Management Platform equipped with JIRA integration. Our Metric-Rich Dashboard enables real time views into the quality of your software application. The live metrics provide insight to testers showing them up to date information on their JIRA issues, Test Execution Progress, Testcases, and Requirements.

More details on QMetry integration here.


Pitch: Complete Quality Assurance solution that manages requirements, tests, bugs and issues in one environment, with complete traceability from inception to completion.
Integration: With the JIRA connector activated, any defects logged during a test execution get routed to JIRA using the SOAP API. Any changes to these issues in JIRA then get synchronized back into SpiraTest using our SOAP API.

Pitch: Testuff is an on-demand test management service that integrates with JIRA. Amongst the standard features, it also includes a test video recorder. The recorder captures bugs as they happen during testing and allows you to send the videos to your developers, making the "works for me" excuse obsolete.

TOSCA Testsuite

Pitch: Software test automation without scripting enabled by TOSCA´s unique "Business Dynamic Steering". This highly innovative and paradigm-shifting approach allows business people without any programming skills to run a highly automated and top efficient software test. For the first time it is possible to run test automation with business-testers using a standard tool only. The necessity of individual test framework programming is gone forever. Tricentis employees have been working intensively in quality assurance, software engineering and with methodical test procedures for more than ten years. For more than seven years our know-how and experience have been applied in our TOSCA Testsuite. This unique combination of software company and service provider-enabled Tricentis to develop TOSCA Testsuite - that many call "The Test Automation of the 3rd Generation".
