Requirements Management

Requirements Management

Wouldn't you like to be able to know how many of your requirements have actually been tested? Manage your requirements with confidence using SpiraTest. SpiraTest allows you to drill down from each of your captured requirements to determine how many test cases have validated the functionality, and status of each of the defects logged.

Release Management

SpiraTest provides the ability to manage the list of releases / versions of the software being tested. During the execution cycle, the Test Runs and Incidents are associated with a particular release. In addition, each release provides drill down capability to list the test runs performed with the associated bugs / defects.

Document Collaboration

SpiraTest includes an integrated web-based document management system that allows project members to upload documents in a secure, centralized location, with support for folder organization, documentation taxonomies and meta-tagging as well as built-in version control. Unlike a standalone tool, these documents can then be connected to SpiraTest artifacts (requirements, test cases, incidents) to provide the complete picture to users.

Test Management

Test Case Management

Tired of managing your project requirements and test cases in documents and spreadsheets. Empower your testing team and throw off the shackles of outdated methods, SpiraTest offers unparalleled functionality and usability combined with our award-winning technical support. Available as an on-premise installation or hosted service.

Manual Testing

SpiraTest provides the ability to execute groups of test cases using an easy-to-use test execution wizard that allows you to mark each step as pass/fail and optionally record a bug / defect. This provides complete traceability from a recorded defect to the underlying requirement.

Automated Testing

Wish you could manage your automated testing in the same environment as your manual testing? With RemoteLaunch for SpiraTest you can setup automated test cases in SpiraTest and schedule them against a master list of automation hosts for execution on either the local computer or remote machines. Available Plug-ins include: UFT, TestComplete, Ranorex, NeoLoad, and Selenium.

Exploratory Testing

SpiraTest includes a dedicated exploratory testing mode where you can create and edit your tests on the fly during testing. It also includes tools for tracking follow-up activities between the developers and testers.

Bug Tracking

Bug Tracking Software

Looking for a better way to track bugs and issues? SpiraTest offers a complete bug tracking solution that manages your entire testing process.Bug tracking features include support for customizable workflows and fields, flexible reporting, configurable email notifications, and fully editable statuses, priorities, severities and bug types.


Customization and configuration are critical for ensuring that a system integrates seamlessly your business processes. SpiraTest can be configured and customized without any coding or scripting. You can create custom properties throughout the system, customize all the incident fields (status, priority, severity, etc.), create customized email templates, and configure custom workflows for managing the testing process.

Build Management

SpiraTest provides the ability to integrate with continuous integration build servers such as Hudson and CruiseControl so that the status of builds can be recorded in SpiraTest and linked to incidents and test runs. This provides traceability for each build, so that you can see what was was tested in each build and what was fixed.

Notifications & Email

SpiraTest has powerful email integration capabilities that ensure that all users are notified about changes in the system, and allows users to raise incidents and post comments directly from their email system.

Reporting & Organization

Project Management

Wish you could see the health of your project on one page? Each project has a dashboard home-page that summarizes all of the information regarding the project into a comprehensive, easily digestible form that provides a “one-stop-shop” for people interested in understanding the overall status of the project at a glance. It contains summary-level information for all types of artifact (requirements, test cases, incidents, etc.) that you can use to drill-down into the appropriate section of the application.


Want a better way than printing out test scripts, recording defects/bugs on paper and then capturing it all back afterwards? SpiraTest includes an extensive library of printable reports and graphical charts. The reports can be customized through extensible XML based report templates. The supported report formats include: MS-Word, MS-Excel, HTML, Adobe Acrobat and MS-Project.


Mobile Responsive

SpiraTest has full support for all mobile and desktop devices with its 100% responsive web interface. SpiraTest supports all the modern devices and platforms, including iOS (iPhone, iPad), Android, Linux, MacOS and Windows.


SpiraTest has an extensive administration capability that can be accessed using just a web-browser. To reduce the burden on IT staff, you can delegate project administration to different users, allowing project managers to be self-sufficient.

Data Migration

Leverage your existing testing data with SpiraTest. Using our Add-Ins for Microsoft Word, Excel and Project you can easily import requirements, test cases, releases and incidents from your existing templates. In addition SpiraTest comes with an import wizard for easily migrating from HP Quality Center or Mercury TestDirector.

Electronic Signatures

In regulated industries such as healthcare, there is often a requirement for specific actions within the quality management system to be signed by an approver. SpiraTest provides built-in support for electronic signatures (digital signatures) out of the box.
