5.3.1. Incidents

In this mode, the main pane displays a list of any incidents that are associated with this test step. They can either be linked indirectly due to being logged during a test run, or directly linked after the fact:

Each incident is listed together with the type, status, priority, name, owner, detector, detection date and a link to the actual incident details. You can customize the fields that are displayed using the “Show/Hide Columns” option. In addition, you can perform the following operations:

  • Refresh – updates the list of incidents from the server, useful if other people are adding incidents to this release at the same time.
  • Apply Filter – Applies the entries in the filter boxes to the list of incidents
  • Clear Filters – Clears the current filter, so that all incidents associated with the current release are shown.
  • Edit – Clicking the [Edit] button to the right of the incident allows you to edit the incident inline directly on this screen.

To create a new association between this test step and an existing incident, simply click the <Add> hyperlink which will display the “Add New Association” popup dialog box:

You need to choose the specific incident you want to link to, either by choosing the item from a scrolling selection box, or entering the ID of the incident directly (if known). In either case you can also add a comment that explains the rationale for the association.

Finally, to delete an existing incident association (except for those due to test runs) select the check-box next to its name and click the <Delete> hyperlink. This will only delete the association, not the linked incident itself.
