I can't help but think that you are in some way related to the product you recommend and it may be the best thing since sliced bread, but with a bit of study you can really do a lot(!) within Jira itself.

Yes, you caught me  :P 

I am trying to promote ZenTao internationally. Back in China, we have a lot of users who make good use of our open source version. So why not bring it to the overseas markets and see whether they like it.
Thank you.  We require those that are affiliated with software to clearly state that and the affiliatiin clearly or remove the post in question. Could you please edit the first post to show clearly that you are affiliated with the comlany, and to state what that affiliation is?


I've changed and added a declaration part to the beginning of it. THank you :)

I work for Nature Easy Soft, and one of our products is ZenTao. It is open source and for Scrum, so I am trying to let more people know about it. Below is what I wrote for promoting ZenTao. Thanks:)


Jira, in project management, is claimed to be the number one tool used by agile teams. Teams using Jira could easily extend planning, tracking, and reporting with other products of Atlassian, such as collaboration tool HipChat, project planning tool Confluence, and continuous integration tool Bamboo.


However, Jira falls short in test case management. If you have tried Jira, you would know what I am trying to say here. Jira is not an ALM exactly. It is not primarily for QA management given basically anything to be created and tracked via JIRA is considered an issue. As the definition of QA, history, and execution are not separate in JIRA, the rework just increases when QA Managers are scaling QA efforts. Another downside of Jira is its inability to update execution results at each step of the QA. Consequently, QA Managers have limited visibility of the QA progress.


ZenTao, as an Application Lifecycle Management(ALM), covers the whole process of software development project. Its main modules are Project Management, Product Management, and QA management, and integrates task management, story management and bug tracking. ZenTao
 underestands that every development team is unique and each of them follows a different set of workflows. Within ZenTao, teams could use extensions to add features they need particularly.

Using ZenTao to do QA management


The basic bug workflow in ZenTao is,


bugs submitted by testers => bugs resovled by developers => bugs accepted by testers => bugs closed by testers.


If a bug did not pass the acceptance, it could be activated for resolution again,



submit bugs by testers => solve bugs by developers => accept bugs by testers => activate bugs by testers =>solve bugs by developers => accept bugs by testers => close bugs by testers.


If a bug recurs after being closed,


submit bugs by testers => solve bugs by developers => accept bugs by testers => close bugs by testers => activate bugs by testers => solve bugs by developers => accept bugs by testers => close bugs by testers.

Once developers have asked for a test task, the test task will be generated for them. Then the developers need to relate test cases to it. If the test task needs to be completed by several developers, test cases should be assigned or claimed voluntarily. Go to QA->Build, and choose a build to be tested and click the button to link to test cases.





This is a short introduction of QA management in ZenTao. If you would like to know more or to try it for free, you can go to ZenTao official website.

You want (or need) to host the solution yourself or not?

While not free or open source, I heartily recommend Jira. The other projects mentioned by wraith808 are very good and mature issue-trackers, but the interface and manageability of Jira is awesome. They have a cheap plan of 10 USD/month for a max of 10 users and prices go down if you need to add more people. There is also their solution that you can host on your own hardware.

In any case, Jira is already very feature complete and if you put in the time, you can manage every aspect of the workflow you like or need. And if things are still missing, you can make your own plugin(s) or get one from their shop. Which is mainly filled with plug-ins that other 3rd-party companies have made and they offer these either freely or with a commercial license.

Jira is a product from the Atlassian company and integrates very well with other Atlassian products. Been using Jira (self-hosted) for more than 10 years already and it is really an excellent tool for keeping track of issues, it integrates very well with 3rd party version tracking of files out-of-the-box, keeps track of time spent on issues, generating reports, graphical overviews and lots more. Never had one inkling of using anything else since.

Atlassian software, that truly is money well spent. No affiliation, besides being a happy user.

Thank you! It is a great answear:)
