Report of Test Cases and Test Results by Program

A customer asked us if we could provide a report of all the test cases and test results across all projects and programs. In the future we plan on having built in screens for quality managers to be able to see the test results and test metrics across all projects without needing to run a report. However this report will give you the information in the meantime.

Creating a Summary Report of Test Cases and Defects

Sometimes you want a simple test execution report that includes the list of test cases, execution dates and raised defects, without all the ancillary information in the standard Spira reports. This article provides an example of such a report.

The 'TestCaseWorkflowId' property on 'TestCaseType' could not be set to a 'null' value

When you upgrade from v5.4 to v6.0 upon opening a test case detail page you receive the error: "The 'TestCaseWorkflowId' property on 'TestCaseType' could not be set to a 'null' value". This article explains the cause and provides the solution

Fixing "The maximum recursion 100 has been exhausted" error in Spira 5.0 and 5.1

Customers running Spira v5.0 or v5.1 may experience an issue where the system will let you create test case folders that point to one of their children as parent. This causes an infinite loop which will break the system. This article provides a solution to fix the issue (though we recommend upgrading to v5.4 to prevent it happening in the future).

Test Set Execution Status Not Updating When I Run Test Cases

Sometimes customers will contact us regarding questions as to why the execution status indicator of their test sets is not being updated (i.e. everything still looks as not run) even after running some of the test cases. This article explains why this might be the case and provides solutions.

How the Test Set Execution Status is Calculated in Spira 5.0+

One of the limitations in SpiraTest and SpiraTeam v4.x was that for performance reasons we could not handle test sets with very large numbers of test cases and that the system was not able to display the counts of the test cases and the execution status for test set folders.

Creating a Report of Test Sets, Test Cases and Test Steps in Hierarchical Order
Sometimes you want to get a report of all the test sets with their included test cases along with their test steps with the tests organized by the order in which they are displayed in SpiraTest. The custom reporting system in Spira allows you to create a custom report of all the test cases (by test set) and test steps sorted by test case order. This articles describes the process for creating such a report.

(There are different versions of the ESQL query to use based on the version of Spira that you are using)
Best Practices for Test Folders and Test Sets
Several customers have asked us for recommendations and best practices for how to organize their test cases / folders and test sets / folders. This article provides some suggestions.
How to get the ID of a test case from it's name using SOAP web services
This article describes the process for calling SpiraTest / SpiraTeam using its SOAP web service API to query the system to retrieve a list of test cases that match a specific name so that you can obtain its test case id.
