5.2. Test Case Details

When you click on a test case item in the test case list described in section 5.1, you are taken to the test case details page illustrated below:

This page is made up of three areas; the left pane displays the test list navigation, the top of the right pane displays the name of the selected test case together with various operation icons, and the bottom of the right pane displays different tabs with information related to the test case.

The navigation pane consists of a link that will take you back to the test case list, as well as a list of the peer test case to the one selected. This latter list is useful as a navigation shortcut; you can quickly view the detailed information of all the peer test cases by clicking on the navigation links without having to first return to the test cases list page. The navigation list can be switched between three different modes:

  • The list of test cases matching the current filter
  • The list of all test cases, irrespective of the current filter
  • The list of test cases assigned to the current user

The top part of the right pane allows you to view and/or edit the details of the particular test case. You can edit the name and once you are satisfied with any changes to the test case, simply click either the <Save> or <Save and New> button at the top of the page to commit the changes. In addition you can delete the current artifact by choosing <Delete>, discard any changes made by clicking <Refresh> or print it by clicking <Print>.

Using the <Email> button on the toolbar, you can send an email containing details of the test case to an email address or another user on the system:

You can specify the subject line for the email, and either a list of email addresses, separated by semicolons, or an existing project user .The content of the email is specified in the System Administration – Notification Templates.

The lower part of the right pane can be switched between seven different views by clicking the appropriate tab. Initially the pane will be in “Overview” mode, but it can be switched to “Requirements Coverage”, “Test Runs”, “Releases”, “Incidents”, “Attachments” and “History” modes if so desired. Each of the views is described separately below. In addition there is a shortcut icon “Execute” that allows you to execute this test (see section 5.3) without having to return to the Test Case list.
