End of life for TestProject – what next for the community?
When Tricentis acquired TestProject and continued to offer it as a “free” tool for its customers, it seemed like a good fit, given the cost-effective nature of TestProject. However, after years of being “free,” the recent news announcement on “TestProject End of Life (EOL) on March 31, 2023,” has not really come as a surprise to many.
Acquisitions by larger businesses are usually done as part of the growth strategy, and it is therefore not always sustainable to continue keeping up with the free promise. And this really makes one ask the good old question – is free software free as in free beer, or free as in free speech?
And this is exactly why we decided to open source Testsigma earlier this year. We do have the cloud version that our customers sign up for and pay a subscription for. But if needed, one can always go to our Github project and not just use Testsigma for free, but also own it.
So what’s next?
If you are a TestProject user, I would love to invite you to check out Testsigma for your test automation needs. You have multiple options to get started –
- There is the open source version of Testsigma you can get started right away with
- And as I mentioned above, if you need to achieve the same with less maintenance, you can sign up for the cloud version
Either way, rest assured that you are in great company. Here is what one of our customers had to say about migrating to Testsigma.
We were looking to migrate out of TestProject because of stability issues and the fact that the tool was placed in maintenance mode – which meant it just wasn’t just as usable anymore. We are glad we found Testsigma – Testsigma is faster, way more stable and the QA team is now able to author test cases at a speed never seen before, thanks to Testsigma’s true no-code solution.
Testsigma is highly recommended if you are looking to replace Testproject.

(Migrated from TestProject to Testsigma)
Testsigma offers many (and many more) of the same features as TestProject. We have built it with an immense focus on user experience and quality. Plus Testsigma is open source – and we definitely are here to stay!
And for those who would like us to help with your maintenance, there is always the cloud version.
And we are happy to offer 1 year of free testing (local execution) with 1 parallel on the Pro plan for all Testproject users.
We are also working on a migration that will let you import all your TestProject data and continue where you left off, even finer.
With more than 5 million successful test cases created in a span of just 9 months, see for yourself how different Testsigma does the job from this Testproject alternatives Guide.
