Choose between three world-class solutions and find what’s right for your size and complexity.
Small, Agile teams
☑️ Test design
Zephyr Squad is the #1 selling test management solution for Jira. Over 7.5 million users across 100 countries rely on Zephyr Squad for flexible test management inside Jira. This tool is ideally suited for smaller, agile-focused teams looking to get started with test management inside Jira.
Zephyr Squad is a native Jira app that lets you add testing capabilities to your overall planning, development, bug tracking, and reporting processes in Jira. If you already use Jira for Agile release management, Zephyr Squad lets you easily add test management to the mix, and you don’t have to worry about working with “yet another tool or platform”. All the test management basics are present and accounted for – including test design, execution, and reporting – making it easy for teams already familiar with Jira to start testing immediately.
Mid-size, growing Teams
☑️ Reusability-at-scale features
☑️ Lightweight test planning
☑️ Automation and integration with BDD and CI tools
☑️ Cross-project reporting
Zephyr Scale is a scalable, performant test management solution inside Jira with advanced test planning, reporting, and reusability features. This tool is ideally suited for medium sized, growing teams that are looking for a more structured test management solution inside Jira.
What makes Zephyr Scale stand out from similar tools is that its test entities are linked, but not directly based on the Jira issue types. This lets you easily configure your own custom fields and statuses to a greater degree at a project level, without the need to involve a Jira admin. Zephyr Scale also comes with advanced reusability features, such as cross-project hierarchical test libraries, versioning, and parameters. Like Zephyr Squad, you have the option to scale your testing with BDD, CI/CD, and automation integration. To ensure the best visibility across teams, Zephyr Scale users can also take advantage of over 70 out-of-the-box reports and Jira dashboard gadgets.
Mid-Large, Complex Teams
☑️ Bi-directional Jira integration
☑️ End-to-end traceability
☑️ Enterprise-grade test planning and auditing
☑️ Flexible support for third-party automation frameworks
☑️ Legacy ALM migration path and transition plan
☑️ Premium enterprise support
Zephyr Enterprise is robust, standalone test management solution that offers the most comprehensive set of features in the Zephyr family. This tool is ideally suited for large organizations that most likely already use some enterprise-grade test management solution.
Not only can Zephyr Enterprise import data from Jira (such as defects, requirements, or test cases), but it can also connect and consolidate data from multiple Jira instances within your organization. Zephyr Enterprise meets the most demanding requirements around privacy and security (with enterprise-grade LDAP, SSO, Encryption in Transit and at Rest), provides enterprise-grade test planning, and offers support for multiple test automation workflows and frameworks, making it the perfect tool for consolidating teams that use disparate, homegrown automation solutions.
