"The feature that I have found most valuable is the dashboard."
"From a testing perspective, the management is awesome. I am able to do testing and then add the reporting and the evidence. It is fair in terms of the price that you're paying. You get what you're paying for."
"The traceability is valuable. While managing the workflows, it was always nice to have that traceability from requirements and all the way through design. It integrates with Microsoft Test Manager, and you can have everything that is related to a requirement attached to it."
"The initial setup is fairly easy."
"The interface is easy to navigate."
"The most valuable feature is the backlog."
"What I like the most is that you can set permissions on just one folder."
"It's is a very stable solution."
"Good branching and labelling features."
"Basically, the capacity to construct various products is something I find handy."
"With TestRail, the APIs are there, but they may not be able to easily integrate with the Jenkins."
"I do see room for lots of improvement in it. In terms of usability, duplication with test cases and constant creation of projects isn't easy. There is also too much API integration into automation tools, which is not there in ALM with UFT. Instead of setting it up as a project and using it, we set it up as a system for usability. It also lacks in the traceability aspect. For traceability, you need to use the JIRA plugin and drag traceability on JIRA, but the functionality is still quite limited. The biggest gap is mainframe testing. It would be good if I could start with mainframe testing. Manual granting of access is another issue. There is no API that I could use with another system where it is automated. There is an API for loading somebody to a project but not for adding to the application."
"I would like to see the reporting features expanded so that I can see details on the users connected to all of the projects."
"The project management side should be addressed and the project and release planning should be somewhat extended."
"There are many things that I cannot do, and I have a lot of bugs."
"Currently, we are looking for a solution with which we can incorporate third-party development sites or third-party project teams into the system. Because it is on-premise, it is a bit problematic because we need to have a VPN or something else in the system. A cloud-based solution would be better for us, and that's what we are looking for. Our biggest problem is the external connection, which, of course, is limited by our own IT. It would be good to have some kind of publishing service for this external connection. It might be there, and it might be that our IT is making it impossible for us. Its template editor could be easier to use. Currently, customizing the project templates according to your needs requires some work."
"It has been really dated. When you start to work more in an agile environment, it is not really that flexible. They tried to replicate the look and feel of Jira, but it is not quite there. It was nice to use in the past, but it is not as flexible now with the changing development environments and methodologies."
"I'm looking for specific options that aren't currently available, such as active status, new status, or what's currently in progress."
"The reporting functionality is something that they should work on."
"The execution of test cases could stand improvement."
