Pending Test runs

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Hi there,

We are looking for a way to configure the Pending Test Runs widget on My page.  The issue is that it provides very minimal fields and doesn't show the majority of the test case names.  Testers can have dozens of tests under their Pending Test Runs and it is difficult to know which one they are looking at.  If there a way to add a column or widen the column width or even word wrap that column?  When I click on the Settings icon for that widget, it tells me to configure it like I want and then apply but it is not giving me any option it seems...

Thanks in advance,

Hi Sacha,

The 'My Pending Test Runs' widget shows a single entry for a test set that could have 100+ test cases inside of it. So we don't display the test case names. That particular widget doesn't have any customization options.

Thanks Jim.

Another question ...We have Test Sets that represent end 2 end business scenarios - i.e. a sequence of steps that need to happen in a particular order.  That said, the Test Cases within the Test Sets can be assigned to various people.  I ran in a different thread that the way to set that up is to assign Test Case Owners in the Test Set itself.  We've got that working.  The challenge I can foresee however is that it seems that as soon as a Test Run is started for that Test Set, a Pending Test Run appears on both users.  How can the second person involved in the process know that the Test Set is actually ready for them to perform their part?  What process would you recommend they follow to know when it's time for them to go in to complete their assigned test case?

Hi Sacha,

That's a good question.  Basically, the testers have to communicate directly with each other, by whatever means is most convenient.
