Zeenyx Software, a testing solutions company, announced the release of AscentialTest version 7.2, which features integration with Jira for defect tracking and management. AscentialTest now provides a way for users to manage the relationship between tests, test results and defects. Users can create defects and assign tests to defects from within their test repository. By automatically keeping track of test results and defect status, AscentialTest prompts users to rerun tests to verify bug fixes and close defects based on test results. V7.2 also provides automated testing support for out of band/asynchronous events.
