  1. Exported data should be in order of table view, especially test cases

    I have a project whose test cases are grouped by their Jira Epic (custom field for Epic Link and subfolder under Test Cases). I'd like to be able to export all test cases for a project and have the output group the test cases by Epic. But, if I export from a sorted table view the output is (I assume) the order of creation in the DB. If I include test steps in my output it is impossible to sort the output by epic. The output should be in the order of the table view, not the DB

    • Bulk Update Start New Run

      I would like the ability to Start New Run for multiple test scripts. Sometimes we have a bug that causes multiple test cases to fail. I would like the ability to reset those back to not run once the bug fix has been released.

      • Create execution set from template

        An example scenario:
        In our script library, we keep a package called "sanity" that contains all of our sanity test scripts.
        Sometimes we create a "sanity" execution from the full contents of this sanity script package. This is easy enough, open the script package and create execution while retaining structure.
        But just as often, we want to create a sort of "light sanity" execution which is strictly a subset of the entire sanity script package. We want to do this without having to create another script package called "light sanity", since the scripts in that package would be duplicates of…

        • Allow setting the default filter on the Incident view

          I only use ET to view the list of Defects outstanding. Every time I open it, I need to double-click the Incident entry on the tree, click Filter, Manage, My Queries, then double-click the query definition I previously set up.

          I want to be able to open the Incident tree with my Filter already applied - the current way is extremely frustrating.

          • Allow custom fields on automated tests

            We need the ability to set custom fields on AutomatedTests. We use this for test classification and organization.

            • Able to edit the Execution Run Status list (Passed, Failed, Undetermined etc)

              I seem to be stuck with using Passed, Failed, Undetermined etc (awful status that undetermined!). I want additional fields such as In Progress so we know what tests are actually being tested at a point in time (some tests can take a long time). I want to remove Undetermined.

              • BUG Incident List has Test Case quick action bar

                When viewing the Incidents using a customer filter,the bar directly above the list is not applicable to Incidents - it appears to be for Test Cases e.g. the status drop-down contains "In Progress", "Blocked" etc.

                • Ability to retain custom column layout of Multi Step Execution window between Test Cases

                  While executing Test Cases with the Multi Step Execution tab selected if I change the columns displayed or the column size the changes are not saved when I open another Test Case to execute.

                  This would save time so users don't have to adjust or hide columns every time they open a test case to execute to get the most efficient screen real estate for their testing.

                  User changed columns are saved between test cases and sessions in the Test Case edit section and also in the Incident section.

                  • Click portlet bar graph and auto-filter on result set

                    You really need to add the ability to click on a bar in a portlet graph and bring the user to the result set. For example, the Execution Status portlet on the Test Execution view can show you X# of failed test executions, but you have to then apply a filter to see them instead of just clicking on the 'failed' bar in the graph

                    • Improve theJIRA Integration with a optional Link between requirement and Incident

                      If you import requirements from and export Incidents to JIRA it is not possible to see they are related without changing between the two applications. It would be great if the exported incident could contain a link to the underlying requirement. This would improve traceability a lot!

                      • Search & Replace across tests and packages with filtering for scope

                        There is no way to do a global search & replace across a collection of test cases which is... incredible !

                        This a such a basic feature to manage test specifications.

                        • Undetermined Status

                          Hi, could anyone give me some ideas on what the "Undetermined" status should be used for when executing scripts. The managers on my project seem to hate this status and go crazy when it's used. No one seems to know what it really means - a script should either fail or pass, not fall in between. Thanks!

                          • Replace the test results drop down (e.g. pass/fail) with buttons to halve clicking during execution

                            Replace the test results drop down with result buttons:
                            A green tick for pass
                            A red X for fail
                            Orange hand for blocked
                            White rubber for clear
                            etc.

                            The user need only click once to set or change the step result. This allows the tester to concentrate more on the execution and less on mouse movements and where they have to click.

                            As the user clicks on the result, set the background colour of the step row to match the result button for more obvious/clearer visibility of the result at a glance.

                            Additionally, if the user clicks a result at…

                              When doing bulk updates to test cases where I start with an export, I'm required to include test step information so it can be included in my import. When working within the spreadsheet, I'm unable to sort/filter the data because of the rows for test steps.

                              • New report - matrix of test results by build cycles for the past N builds

                                Not every test is executed each cycle. New builds can be delivered faster than full test cycles can be executed, especially towards the end of the project where test managers typically focus the team on new changes and selective regression over full regression.

                                This can result in a single build's test report showing gaps which can lead to less confidence in the build that is warranted.

                                A report showing a matrix of test results VS the past N build cycles provides two important bits of information quickly:
                                * The number of cycles since any given test was last executed. This…

                                  - be abble to customize existing items like Test Step attributes (also Test Plan / Test Execution / Test Result )

                                    i would ask to improve Configuration Management concept of the Test items to be able to :

                                    - create tests cases applicable over various projects and their several variants (System, Hardware, Software...)

                                    - create steps inside generic case that are applicable only on specific system configuration (System, Hardware, Software...)

                                    • Add new pass criteria for test step - not done

                                      I would find it useful if a test step could have 'Not Done' as a valid step done criteria. This would allow a user to consciously not executing a step within a test script when using a test script multiple times in different execution sets

                                      • Add a notes page to child package of execution sets

                                        I would find it very useful to have the ability to have a notes page for an execution set where I can add notes that are not necessarily related to test step notes. such as release concessions, observations etc.
                                        I would see this note as being either at the beginning or end of a script extract report.
                                        This could be an option selectable akin to 'Add Test Script Package'
                                        when added to a child package (or agile run) of an execution set, the user (tester) can add any information until it gets archived as script extract report.

                                        • Add ability to map requirements to Test Case steps.

                                          Currently requirements are mapped to a test case. This assumes that a test case covers only one requirement, when in reality various requirements can be tested during the various steps on the test case.

                                          Some may argue that you can map various requirements to a test case but then all those would be marked as failing when maybe one or more, but not all are really failing. This also impacts regression testing capabilities when a requirement is changed.

                                          This has been the main feature preventing me to introduce the tool at work.
