Manage QA Test Cases


QATracker is a Trac 0.11 plug-in used to manage QA Test Cases via the native Trac interface.

  • Test Plans and Test Runs are managed by Milestones
  • Test Cases are managed by Tickets
  • Test Results are the Closed Tickets with some sort of resolution (Pass, Fail, Skip, etc.)

In other words, QA folks get all the snazzy benefits of Trac (reporting, transparency, usage patterns, etc.) that development is already enjoys.

High Level

The QATrackerPlugin does two things:

  1. Creates a new Test Run and populates it with Test Cases from an existing Test Plan
  2. Populates an existing Test Run with additional Test Cases from an existing Test Plan


Please note that QATrackerPlugin is currently alpha. Effectively, it only manages the "happy path" for usage. A more polished beta will be available by 2/28/09 that includes proper error handling as well as customization options.

Specific notes regarding usage plus recommendations will be added soon in the Example section. Screenshots too.


For the purposes of the QATrackerPlugin, the following words are defined and mapped to the Trac interface.

Test Plan
A collection of Test Cases, effectively speaking a template for a Test Run. Within Trac, this equates to a Milestone with unassigned Tickets.
Test Run
An instance of a Test Plan. Within Trac, this equates to a Milestone with assigned Tickets.
Test Case
Something to test. Within Trac, this equates to a ticket.
Test Result
Something that was tested. Within Trac, this equates to closed ticket (and/or their resolution).
