A list of expected deliverables and explanation of their contents is listed below. Please note that you will need access to TestRail in order to create these artifacts.

Artifacts

Regression Test Plan

Collab Cycle:

Note: If you already have a regression test plan for your product's baseline in TestRail, you can skip this step. However, as your changes are integrated you will need to continue to update your regression test plan to reflect the new baseline.

Regression test plans should represent a basic suite of test scenarios that cover the baseline functionality of your product prior to changes from your current development effort.

Exploratory Test Charter

Not a part of collab cycle -- may be executed at any point in SDLC

An exploratory test charter is used to define scope of an exploratory test session as well as record the results of that session. The linked template includes all recommended aspects of an exploratory test session.

Test Plan

Collab Cycle:

You will create a test plan within TestRail. The test plan is a mapping of the functional changes being developed to test cases that verify those changes behave as expected per the user stories and acceptance criteria. A test plan may employ multiple testing techniques (manual, automated end-to-end, and load tests). If test cases do not exist for each change then they will need to be created.

Test Cases

Collab Cycle:

Test cases describe in detail the actions taken within the product that verify the changes made during development achieve the acceptance criteria defined in their associated user stories.

Test Results

Collab Cycle: Delivered for Staging Review

Test results include the outcome of the execution of the test cases. These results enable project participants to understand where successes and failures were achieved.

Reference Test Coverage Report

Collab Cycle: Delivered for Staging Review

This report provides an overview of which user stories are covered by your test plan as well as what percentage of your test cases are linked to a user story.
A link to your TestRail Coverage for References report or an export of your coverage map.

Summary(Defects) Report

Collab Cycle: Delivered for Staging Review

This report provides a summary of the defects uncovered during test case execution as well as a percentage of defects that were resolved vs. unresolved.
