Test Management for Jira Server

Creating Live Reports in Confluence

We’re excited to announce that TM4J, Test Management for Jira, is now part of the SmartBear family. Learn more.

Use macros to expand the capabilities of your Confluence pages by adding extra functionality and dynamic content. Test Management Reporting for Confluence gives you real-time insights into your test management initiative with up to 60 out-of-the box testing macros. It’s a free app for Confluence, but it requires Test Management for Jira to pull data and render the reports/charts.

These macros give you the ability to create insightful testing reports to track coverage, progress, and quality across Jira projects, epics, and user stories. Then you can share the information with your colleagues for easier data analysis and collaboration.

This topic walks you through the following tasks:

Test Management Reporting for Confluence must be installed for Confluence, and Test Management for Jira 4.5 or newer must be installed for Jira. This functionality is only available for Jira and Confluence Server at this time.
