Smartbear integrates test tools with the Atlassian ecosystem

SmartBear, the Massachusetts-based provider of software quality tools, has integrated its testing portfolio into the Atlassian ecosystem with tools like Jira, Bitbucket, and Confluence, according to a press release.

By leveraging Zephyr and creating new integrations, the company plans to provide Atlassian users with a native experience for their development activities.

According to the release, the new integration will enable test automation across UI, API, and data layers, as well as across a range of mobile devices and browsers.

The company also expanded its Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) capabilities with the introduction of a new Living Documentation Jira, which enables all team members to collaborate on projects more easily.

“We are excited to be following our acquisition of Zephyr so quickly to help Jira users extend their workflows,” said Justin Teague, CEO of SmartBear.

“With these new integrations, SmartBear continues to lead the way in software development and testing by being the first to provide a completely integrated test automation solution—extending the native Jira experience in Zephyr. This continues to highlight our belief in the Atlassian ecosystem and commitment to those 130,000 customers.”
