Our Clubhouse test management integration brings both Clubhouse and TestLodge closer together by automating certain tasks which make QA teams more productive along with improving communication and documentation between software testers and developers.

Clubhouse test management

The integration itself allows for stories in Clubhouse to be automatically created when a test fails in TestLodge and the bug report includes all the information that a developer will need to replicate the problem. Once the bugs have been resolved by the development team, you can sync back the Clubhouse story state into TestLodge and update stories directly from TestLodge as each fix is verified.

How to setup the integration

Setting up the test case management integration is straightforward and should only take a couple of minutes, just follow these 3 quick steps:

  1. Whilst viewing the TestLodge project list, click ‘Settings’, followed by ‘Issue tracker integration’ from the sub menu.
  2. Select Clubhouse from the dropdown menu and then enter your API Token which you can easily generate from your Clubhouse account.

  3. Finally if you choose to edit your TestLodge projects (Edit link can be found when viewing a projects dashboard) you can choose to view a list of Clubhouse projects and select the one that the stories should be created in.

That’s it, once completed everything is setup and TestLodge will now start automatically interacting with Clubhouse.

Features of our Clubhouse Test Management Integration

Our integration with Clubhouse has been developed based on feedback from existing users and contains the following functionality:

Story / Bug Report Creation

When a test fails in TestLodge, a story will automatically be created in Clubhouse with all the necessary information, such as steps to replicate needed for a developer to replicate the issue.

Associate an Existing Story

Should you already have a story open for a known bug and you would rather TestLodge updated this instead of creating a new ticket, you can quickly associate it with the test case in TestLodge before failing the test.

Story Options

Before failing a test you will also have the option of setting various Clubhouse story options directly from TestLodge such as followers and labels.

Sync back Story Status

Once you have completed your tests and stories have been resolved you can sync back the Clubhouse story state into TestLodge. This will then allow you to select the tests which you’d like to verify based on the TestLodge result and the Clubhouse story status. For example you may want to create a re-run of all tests which have failed and have associated stories in Clubhouse that have a state of ‘Ready for Review’.

Verifying Fixes

When you are re-running any tests which have an associated Clubhouse story, TestLodge will update these by adding a comment to the story along with allowing you to update the Clubhouse story state directly from TestLodge.
