Owner of Test Sets reset to None after execution

Monday, August 15, 2011
When a Test Set is executed by an assigned owner, we are seeing the owner automatically reset to None.  Is this correct?  If so, what's the reasoning behind this?

Yes this is correct. It was requested a while back so that users can run the test sets in their assigned list and as they complete them, they get automatically removed from the list.

An issue that I see with this is the Owner goes to None when there are a portion of the TCs of the Test Set that are run; running Test Set Execution when TCs are selected within the Test Set.  I'd like to keep the Owner if user decides to run a portion and not all are executed.  Right now, if I select one of the TCs in the Test Set and execute it, the Owner field goes to blank.  This Test Set is no longer on his Test Sets to run and it's not complete.

There is an open enhancement to make this behavior configurable instead of always working this way.

Has this enhancement been implemented? If so, what version and where is the setting?

Brad - I spoke with Support today and wanted to relay the news to you.

This enhancement as been implemented in SpiraTeam v4.1 and newer (I believe).

  1. Go to Administration module. 
  2. On the left hand menu, under the System group, click the link called "General Settings".
Towards the bottom of the options (3rd or 4th section). There is an option called Auto Unassign Tests. Here you can choose whether or not a owner should be unassigned when a test cases passes as well as when a test set is completed.

Hope this helps!
