Flexible FIT Software Modules
FIT offers additional modules that can be added to the base system to provide increased functionality.
FIT was created as a stand alone solution for quick and painless installations on customer sites. The base model incorporates a built-in web server and flat file storage system which allows it to be installed anywhere in just minutes. As the base model of FIT has matured, it has gained widespread acceptance as a robust and flexible tool. However, we have acknowledged that a flat file system is not always the desired method for data storage. In addition, there are a number of third party tools available with database extensions for graphing and reporting. We have developed a Database Module that allows database storage on any JDBC compliant database.
TestSpec is a test case management tool that controls and documents the test specification process. It allows you to define independent sets of test cases for multiple projects and then documents the results of test runs executed by the testing team. This gives you an accurate and up to date repository of information which is stored on a central server and available to all appropriate users, anywhere, anytime.
This module is built on top of the FIT | BugTrack, FIT Tracking Solutions’ web-based defect tracking tool. This integration combines the test specification process with a proven defect management process for a complete testing and quality assurance package.

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) allows a common set of information to be stored in one centralized location, rather than have the same information distributed in an uncontrolled manner over multiple locations for each application. The FIT LDAP module allows you to control the following information in a central LDAP location:
- Passwords for authentication
- User types (readonly, admin, normal)
- FIT security groups
- Email addresses
FIT will auto-create a user if they authenticate correctly within LDAP, and it can be set to synchronize all users between FIT and LDAP.
Controls are in place for creating all users within your system at the push of a button, or as scheduled in the FIT ldap.cfg file.
