5.8. Test Set Details

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

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

The navigation pane consists of a link that will take you back to the test set list, as well as a list of the peer test sets 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 sets by clicking on the navigation links without having to first return to the test sets list page. The navigation list can be switched between three different modes:

  • The list of test sets matching the current filter
  • The list of all test sets, irrespective of the current filter
  • The list of test sets 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 set. You can edit the name and once you are satisfied any changes to the test set, 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>.

Test Sets can be specified as being either for “Manual” or “Automated” test runs. If you choose Manual, then the test set can be executed by a tester from their “My Page.” However if you choose “Automated”, the test set will be executed by the automation host you specified. In this case, the planned date and time will be used by the automated test engine to know when to execute the automated test scripts. For manual test sets, only the date component is used. In addition, you can specify a recurrence schedule for the test set by changing the recurrence dropdown from “One Time” to “Hourly”, “Daily”, etc. so that SpiraTeam executes the same test set according to the specified frequency.

The lower part of the right pane can be switched between different views by clicking the appropriate tab. Initially the pane will be in “Overview” mode, but it can be switched to “Test Runs”, “Attachments”, “Incidents” 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 all the tests in the set against the release specified in the test set.
