First, you need to have an active qTest account with access to qTest Pulse. 

Your qTest Site Administrator will need to create a new Admin User profile with qTest Pulse access selected. 


After the profile is created, they will need to assign this profile in the Licenses - Users tab.


Logging In

Once you have been granted access, you can access qTest Pulse from the 9-box icon in the top right corner of the navigation bar. 


2. Create Profile

When logging in to qTest Pulse for the first time, you will need to create a profile by entering your name.


3. Create a Team

In case you neither own nor belong to any team, the system will ask you to create a new team.

Otherwise, you will be automatically redirected to the Activity page where it displays the work items of the team to which you belong. 

You can switch to another team by selecting it in the Team dropdown right next to the qTest Pulse logo. Click here to learn more about the Activity page and Work Items.

If your CI tool is integrated with GitHub, test run results will be outputted in a test runner output and trigger new builds. Failed test cases will show as automated testing results and be reported in your build report. For configuration instructions with GitHub, click here
