Quality and Agile improvements

The following quality and Agile enhancements are now available:

Enhancement Details
Extended milestone support

Until now, milestones were displayed in the project timeline only. In this release, we've enhanced milestone usability to include the following:

  • Assign work items (features, user stories, quality stories, and defects) to milestones.
  • Filter and group grids by milestone.
  • Customize widgets with milestones along the x-axis or in a filter.
Sprint in test runs

We've added the sprint field to manual test runs and run plans. You can now:

  • Filter test runs by sprint.
  • Create custom graphs for test runs by sprint.
Splitting user stories When you split a user story, values of user-defined fields are now copied to the new story too.
Refined automation criteria

We have tweaked the definition of the Automation field in the Criteria section of the Quality by Application Module widget.

The field now represents manual and Gherkin tests set to Automated, in addition to automated tests, providing a more accurate situation report.

For details, see Quality by application module.
