Cloud-Based ALM Integration Hub Now Available for SpiraTest

We are pleased to announce the release of our new cloud-based data synchronization service that lets you easily hook up SpiraTest to your choice of cloud-based project management and issue management systems including Jira.

Background

SpiraTest was designed to be an open test management solution, with the ability to integrate with different bug-tracking and project management tools. Traditionally you would install SpiraTest locally and it would connect to other tools using it's built in data-synchronization framework.

However for customers that were using SpiraTest as a cloud-based service (hosted by Inflectra) they needed to use a standalone data-synchronization application (called the Desktop DataSync) instead. With the release of SpiraTest 5.0 this is no longer needed, you can now use our new 100% cloud-based data synchronization service and have us do the work for you. With cloud-based data-synchronization you simply need the URL and login credentials for the other tool.

Using the Cloud Based Data Synchronization

When you sign up for Spira as a cloud-hosted subscription, you have the option of including the Spira DataSync service as an add-on feature to the subscription:

Make sure you include the ‘Spira DataSync’ add-on with your subscription. Once your subscription is provisioned, you will be able to configure the connection to Spira by going to your secure Customer Area on our website:

Click on the ‘Configure’ button associated with the Spira-DataSync addon row:

Enter a login and password that can connect to your Spira instance. This user needs to be a member of the project(s) that will be synchronized with the external bug-tracker and needs to have at least Incident create/modify/view permissions and Release create/modify/view permissions in these projects.

Click on the ‘Test’ button to verify the credentials, and once they validate, make sure the ‘Active’ flag is checked and then click ‘Save’. You have now configured the synchronization.

You should now see a list of the plugins currently configured in your Spira instance:

If you click on any of the ‘Manage’ buttons you will be taken to your Spira instance where you can complete the plugin configuration:
