At Provar, our teams are complex at work — continuing to innovate and improve our products and provide our customers with the best tools for quality control. The talented teams behind Provar Manager recently unveiled a series of significant updates to the intuitive and easy-to-use quality hub. 

Among the most exciting new features is the DevOps Center Plugin. Available on the Salesforce AppExchange, this free plugin for Provar Manager connects the Quality Hub to the DevOps Center, giving users a bird ‘ s-eye view of the quality of their work items as they move through the pipeline. This new plugin allows teams to analyze Apex and Flow unit tests with results from Provar’s market-leading automation testing, empowers users to review regression issues and coverage gaps in release quality plans, and helps teams understand which work items align with the highest priority business risks.

Details about Provar’s DevOps Center Plugin and other updates to Provar products are available below, so keep reading! 

Provar Director of SE Michael Dailey is presenting “Embed Automated QA into Salesforce DevOps Center Pipelines,” an interactive session on Wednesday, March 8, at 1:30 pm at Trailblazer DX 2023, that will show users how to manage quality in their DevOps Center.

DevOps Center Plugin for Provar Manager

Provar’s new DevOps Center Plugin works with Provar Manager, a robust test management tool allowing teams to plan, implement, execute, and analyze their Salesforce testing activities. First launched on the Salesforce AppExchange in January 2023, this update is Provar’s first Level 2 DevOps plugin, integrating test cases with metadata changes to identify which test cases to run and coverage levels to monitor. 

Provar’s DevOps Center Plugin connects Provar Manager to Salesforce DevOps Center, empowering teams to view and track quality in real-time throughout the pipeline and identify which tests to run based on metadata changes.

Key DevOps Center Plugin features include: 

  • Work Item Test Coverage: Users can manually select which test cases to run to verify that a work item behaves as expected.
  • Smart Testing: Teams can run only the necessary tests for a work item and automatically and efficiently check quality at any point in the pipeline — all critical in sprint testing, Continuous Integration, and Continuous Deployment. This increases efficiency, reduces testing time, and accelerates delivery.  
  • State of Quality: Stakeholders can quickly and accurately understand how quality is measured for each work item at each stage in the pipeline, compare projects, and measure improvements over time.  

The DevOps Center Plugin is designed for current and future Provar Manager customers, SalesforceDevOps users, and medium-sized to enterprise businesses that use Salesforce-native DevOps tooling. Provar Manager and SalesforceDevOps are required for this plugin.
