Getting Started with the SmartBear Community
Welcome to the SmartBear Community,
This Community unites the communities for all SmartBear products. Although the Community was designed with the SmartBear users in mind, we welcome everyone interested in QA, DevOps, or API to join us.
We want your journey in the Community to be as efficient as possible. For this, we have prepared this guide to help you get started with the SmartBear Community.
In the Community, you can find various resources where you can:
Start a discussion, search for solutions, ask your questions. We have Community Leaders and Heroes all around the world who will be happy to assist you.
Submit Feature Requests
Create a product feature request or vote for the existing ideas. Help us improve! If you feel that the SmartBear products lack some features - let us know in the the Feature Request board of your product community (where applicable).
Create technical articles
Technical Articles are a special type of community board where you can browse through dozens of useful articles written by community members or create your own. Share your wisdom with the SmartBear Community and earn awesome badges in the Technical Articles board of your product community (where applicable)!
Have fun in community talks
The SmartBear Community is so much more than just technical forums. Start a general discussion in the Community Talks board in your product community (where applicable) - this is a special board designed for that. There you can introduce yourself, find like-minded people or share a photo of your cat. Have fun!
