- Go to the task list for the upcoming release. (link in announcement email)
- Enter your name into the spreadsheet next to one or more tests.
- Follow the test plan for that task via the QA server. (link on task list)
- Following a test plan is like following a recipe, just complete each task as specified.
- If you do not already have a JIRA account, sign up for one via http://issues.collectionspace.org.
- If you encounter a bug, search JIRA to see if it already exists; if not, file a new JIRA issue. Not sure? Email the talk list.
- Make sure you're testing in a supported environment - the most recent version of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge. IE will not work.
- The test plan represents the minimum requirement for acceptance - any experiments that extend the parameters of the test are very welcome.
- Does everything (visually) look right? If not, consider this a bug if it interferes with your work, or file an improvement request if not.
- Is there anything that would enhance the user experience? If yes, consider this an improvement request.
- Is there anything that should be tested, but which is not? If yes, file a bug for this and assign to the program manager.
- Have you noticed an inconsistency / error in the test plan? Send a note to the talk list and it will be confirmed and corrected.
