Hi, An OnDemand version of Zephyr for JIRA is being seriously considered right now as it has to be built for the new Atlassian Connect framework. We should have a better understanding of timelines before the end of the year and will make an announcement. We understand this might not be the answer you were looking for but its the best we have at this moment. The Team at Zephyr
by T. L. on 09 Dec 2013
Zephyr have a few design flaws which at first I thought they were defects - and I actually logged issues for the Global Admin to contact Zephyr's support team. But I was told they were by design! 1) If executed test steps are all Passed or all Failed, it automatically shows 'Passed' or 'Failed' respectively in the overall execution status. If executed test steps are not all Passed or all Failed, the overall execution status is shown as 'Unexecuted'. I wish to see the overall execution status displayed the 'Failed' status if any step in the test case fails. 2) A test case is always in the 'Open' status in the workflow. I have no idea why there is a workflow there - even though there is no option anywhere to go to the next step in the workflow?!? 3) In the Test Details section, both 'Test Step' and 'Expected Result' field are quite narrow. I wish to see the width of these fields user-customized so that we can expand to write more text in the field without going to the next line. (Maximum is only 46 characters per line.) 4) No version control upon modifying a test case. If the requirement changes from a release to the next, and you want to modify the test case, the old version is overwritten by the new version with the new text. There is no way to go back and see what was changed in the test case - and what test step had that change. History tab provides the general information - having the time stamp when the change was made and who changed it. And that was it. I wish that Zephyr history tab could capture the steps where modified text were made in a test case and have some sort of crossed text for the old test case version. 5) All test cases display in a flat list. If you want a folder structure for your test plan, you need to use 'Structure' grid to organize your test cases (We have around 3000 test cases.) Overall, I would say that Zephyr is ok for our QA team to use but it lacks of the usability concept. It serves the basic need of creating a basic test case and test execution cycles.

Very promising tool, great to use from within Jira, our customer has decided to buy it for all-enterprise use. The lack of two major features is however quite painful: it would be really appreciated to have the possibility for bulk execute test cases and introduce hierarchy between test cases. We plan to use the tool for huge projects in the banking industry with hundreds or even thousands of test cases for each project. One blocking error may cause hundreds of test cases to go to "Blocked" state in a cycle, and it is really painful having to click through all of them. Otherwise the concept is great, looking forward to receiving new features in the future!

Brigitta - your review is timely. Today at the Atlassian Summit we announced Zephyr for JIRA 2.0 (see http://blogs.yourzephyr.com/?p=2859) and it now supports bulk execution of tests, besides a host of other features.

Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

How do upgrades and renewals work?

You can upgrade your Atlassian host product license to increase the user tier for add-on licenses any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula, and are automatically reflected in your cart. View an example of the JIRA upgrade price matrix here.

Add-on licences for downloaded Atlassian products are perpetual. Your original purchase includes 12 months of maintenance. To continue receiving upgrades and support after the initial 12 months, you can renew your maintenance for 50% of the original purchase price. You can purchase maintenance for up to 36 additional months at any time.

OnDemand add-on subscriptions renew each month and can be canceled any time.

How do I determine my pricing tier?

Choose the same user tier you pay for in the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a JIRA download license for 25 users, you should purchase this tier.

Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

What's the difference between OnDemand and download pricing?

Just like your Atlassian host application, there are two pricing models. Pick the model that matches your Atlassian product, and the same rules apply:

Subscriptions renew every month
Add-ons and instances are hosted by Atlassian
Licenses last forever, support and upgrades last for 12 months
Instances and add-ons are hosted on your servers
Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

Add-on purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application.

Add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses.

For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

Do you offer enterprise pricing?

Choose enterprise pricing if your Atlassian host application is billed for enterprise licenses.

Enterprise pricing includes 24/7 phone and email support, access to training through Atlassian University, and other perks. Learn more.

Can I extend my free trial?

You can extend your add-on trial up to 5 times – in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Free Trial and you'll be directed to generate a license at MyAtlassian. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

Alternatively, if you remove your expiring trial license from your Atlassian host application, you can re-add it back for another free trial.

What are legacy pricing tiers?

If you bought your Atlassian host application during or before February 2012, you qualify for legacy pricing tiers.

  • JIRA tiers are 10, 25, 50, and 100 users. The legacy unlimited tier was 100+ users.
  • The Confluence legacy tiers are 10, 25, 50, 100, 500, and 2000 users. The unlimited legacy tier was 2000+ users.
  • There are no enterprise licenses prior to and including February 2012.
