We are happy to announce the availability of Klaros-Testmanagement 5.4.0.

In total, this release contains 40 new features and improvements as well as 27 bug fixes.

In addition to a significantly improved user interface performance, the most important new features include scripts for the migration from TestLink, an enhanced issue management integration, additional options for importing test cases and requirements from external sources, and numerous other smaller improvements.

Migrations of TestLink projects

Migration scripts were created for the conversion of TestLink projects to Klaros-Testmanagement and published as an open source GitHub project:


Improved issue management integration

Managing issues and interacting with integrated issue trackers such as Jira or GitLab has been significantly enhanced.

New detailed views have been added for a more detailed display of properties and relations, and access to external systems has been significantly accelerated. Assigning an issue to multiple test cases and test systems at the same time is now possible.

Enhanced import capabilities with additional options

For importing test cases and requirements from other sources, additional options are now available. For example, requirements can now be directly linked to existing test cases during the import, and hierarchical classifications can be imported.

Merging user accounts

Klaros-Testmanagement now offers to combine several existing user accounts into a single account. This ensures optimal utilization of the accounts, e.g. when staff members change, or for simplification or troubleshooting purposes.

Email notifications

Automatic email notifications are now being sent whenever manual tasks are executed, for example, when the preparations of a test setup are completed and testing can be started.

Other improvements

- Increased performance by upgrading GUI libraries to PrimeFaces 11 / MyFaces-Next
- Enhanced change history for test runs, test case results and report templates
- Targeted creation of test suites for testing requirements coverage
- Additional options in selection dialogs through multi-level filters for better handling
- Enhanced visibility of unmet dependency relationships between tasks
- Improved automatic parameter selection of dashboard diagrams
