Exploratory / Session Based Testing using SpiraTest

Wednesday, April 9, 2014
Does anyone have any experiences they could share regarding setting up and running session based exploratory tests in SpiraTest?

Key questions I have are as follows:

* Are there any 3rd party exploratory testing tools which integrate with SpiraTest?
* Is there a way of recording exploratory test results easily in SpiraTets given that this is a purely unscripted activity?
* Is it possible to customise SpiraTest to allow for 1 step to be created automatically whenever a new test case is created?

Hi Simon

Sirius SQA has a tool called TestExplorer (http://www.sirius-sqa.com/) that they were looking to integrate a while back, I'm not sure if they ever did though...

Independent of that, we plan on adding better inbuilt support for exploratory testing in v4.3.
