Easy exploratory testing with Behave Pro


Exploratory testing is an effective technique for testing user stories and complements test automation well. But how do you report the results and coverage of exploratory testing?

We are pleased to announce version 1.5 of Behave Pro now features Session-based Test Management (SBTM) for planning, tracking and reporting exploratory testing activities within Jira. To celebrate the release of the SBTM feature, anyone starting an evaluation of Behave Pro for Jira Server before Atlassian US Summit 2017 (before 12th September 2017) will receive a 10% discount off a full license.

Being agile with exploratory testing

If you’re a tester and haven’t heard of test sessions before, you might be surprised to learn that you’re probably already using them. That’s because test sessions aren’t new. They’re simply the periods of time, usually between 45 minutes and two hours, devoted to fulfilling a specific test objective. Each session has a scope (test objective and time period), which is called a 'charter' in SBTM.

Test Sessions are created and planned for individual User Stories, Bugs or Issues within Jira. Typically a Story/Issue would have many Test Sessions associated with it, with a simple change having one or two sessions and a complex change having many sessions in accordance to its risk. This risk-based and flexible approach to the testing effort makes Exploratory Testing using Session-based Testing fit so well into Agile projects. Find out more.
