Burnup Testing Gadget

Vansah’s Test execution Burnup Gadget is a visual representation of your testing progress which highlights:

Y-Axis – The Vertical axis represents the number of Tests expected to be executed (Red Line) for the date i.e. BASELINE

X-Axis – The Horizontal axis represents the total completed cases (PASSED AND FAILED) for the date i.e. COMPLETED

Baseline is calculated based on the following:

  • Total cases = Total unique cases linked to Issues in sprint (if selected) or across Test Folders (Cycles).
  • Total days = Number of days within the gadget duration. By default if you select a sprint then the sprint dates will form the duration unless updated.
  • Daily Baseline = Total Cases/Total days
  • Burnup Rate = Daily Baseline multiplied by Day Count (The day number)

Lets Imagine we have 34 Days as the Duration. The total number of unique test cases across all Issues within the Burnup configuration = 67, then we can use the following formula example to demonstrate how the graph is plotted.

Day Count Daily Burnup Rate (cumulative)
1 67/ 34 = 1.97 (Multiply) by Day Count i.e. 1 = 1.97
2 67/ 34 = 1.97 (Multiply) by Day Count i.e. 2 = 3.94
   
   
..  
34 67/ 34 = 1.97 (Multiply) by Day Count i.e. 34 = 67

Completed is calculated based on the following:

  • Daily Completed = All unique Completed Test Cases across your Gadgets configured for Test Folders or Jira Issues
  • Completed is either a Test Case with a Result Status = Passed, Failed or N/A for each date in the Gadget report.

Example: If we have Test Case VFJTM-C001 and VFJTM-C002 linked to Issue VFJTM-1257 and Issue VFJTM-1258 then lets see how this is calculated.

Day 1 Test Case VFJTM-C001 was Passed against Issue VFJTM-1257 and Failed against Issue VFJTM-1258.

Total Completed would be equal to 1 since the same test case was executed and completed on the same day regardless of which Issue or Folder it was tested for.
Day 2 Test Case VFJTM-C001 was Passed against Issue VFJTM-1257 and Test Case VFJTM-C002 Failed against Issue VFJTM-1258.  

Total Completed would be equal to 2 since we have two unique test case that were executed and completed on the same day

Day 30  

The chart makes it easy to track what’s been completed against planned tests. It can be configured to support a Sprint if you are using Scrum or simply use a date range and filter by Jira Issues. If you configured the Gadget to be linked to a sprint then the start and end date period will be identical to your sprint period in Jira.

Maximizing the Gadget displays a Data Table containing details relating to the data points which make up the report. Information such as Period, Total Cases, Passed, Failed, In-Progress, Linked Issues and Test Case details will be provided to help with Traceability and managing your testing.
