Talk Description

In this webinar, we'll learn the main concepts of exploratory testing and how it differentiates from other established approaches, such as scripted testing with step-based tests. 

We'll focus on performing testing as humans to uncover unknown risks in our products. 

During our exploratory testing, we can use tools, such as the Xray Exploratory App, to assist us with basic things, such as defining a charter, linking it to some existing requirement or story, taking evidence (notes, screenshots, recordings), and reporting bugs.

What you’ll learn

By the end of this masterclass, you'll be able to:

  • Understand what exploratory testing is and its core benefits
  • Learn how to perform exploratory testing assisted by the Xray Exploratory App
  • Learn how to share charters and findings with other team members

Xray is the #1 Manual & Automated Test Management App for Quality Assurance in Jira. Developed by Xpand IT, a Platinum Atlassian Solution Partner, it’s a full-featured tool that lives inside and seamlessly integrates with Jira. It aims to help companies improve the quality of their products through effective and efficient testing. They can plan, execute and track their testing with full requirements traceability.

Xray supports both manual and automated tests, including BDD using Cucumber besides JUnit, NUnit, Robot and others. It covers the entire testing life cycle: test planning, test specification, test organization in a flat or hierarchical way, test execution and test reporting. It does this by using special Jira issue types, so you can use all Jira benefits that you are used besides giving the flexibility to organize them in the same project or across multiple projects, for clear separation of concerns.

With Xray, managers can enhance Agile boards by tracking requirement status and test execution progress in real-time. It can also generate advanced reporting that can be exported to docx, xlsx or pdf using Xporter.
