Test Management Reporting for Confluence (TM4C)

Using macros helps you to expand the capabilities of your Confluence pages, allowing you to add extra functionality or include dynamic content. By using Test Management Reporting for Confluence (TM4C) you can get real-time insights into your test management initiative with up to 60 out-of-the box testing macros.

By using the these macros, you'll be able to create insightful testing reports to track coverage, progress and quality across JIRA projects, epics and user stories . Also you'll be able to share them with your colleagues for easier data analysis and collaboration.

Test Management Reporting for Confluence (TM4C) is a free app for Confluence, but it requires Test Management for Jira (TM4J) to pull data and render the testing metrics.

Prerequisites

Test Management Reporting for Confluence (TM4C) must be installed on Confluence and Test Management for JIRA (TM4J) 4.5 onwards must be installed on Jira. It supports Jira and Confluence Server only.

Creating an Application Link (AppLink) between JIRA and Confluence

Application Links (sometimes called "AppLinks") allows you to link Atlassian applications to each other.  An AppLink between Confluence and Jira is required in order to use Test Management Reporting for Confluence (TM4C).
