QA Testing this week  -  12/05/2018 - 12/12/2018*

For Sakai 19 QA this week, we will continue to focus on regression testing the following high-priority tools: Tests & Quizzes Exceptions feature, and Rubrics.  For medium-priority tools, we need testers for CKeditor/ElfinderSearch, and Preferences.  When signing up, include both your institution name and a contact name in the Owner column on the spreadsheet so that we can follow up on testing progress.  We need more than one institution testing Tests & Quizzes and Rubrics due to the complexity of testing those tools.

Sakai 19 QA Testing Signup

Steps for testing
  • All high-priority tools have regressions scripts that can be found in the regression script column.  Use this script for testing.
  • Test on multiple browsers.  Mobile is great if you can test there, too.
  • If you find new bugs, please create a new JIRA and add that to your testing results (see Reporting Issues below)
  •  For reference, all related JIRAs for a specific tool are listed in the JIRA column.

Server to use for testing
All testing is taking place on the Sakai 19 QA server - (refreshed weekly)
When testing notifications/email, you can check the Mail Catcher server to confirm sent messages -

Please feel free to reach out the to the QA team with any questions.  And join us for Test Fest this Thursday at 10 am EST in the BBB QA Room.

*QA testing is informed by updates on the Core Team call and QA planning sessions which are held on Tuesday every week.  Therefore, QA testing cycles run from Wednesday to Wednesday the following week.  Longer QA cycles may be held during QA for major releases to accommodate more in-depth testing such as regression testing.
