Timestamps on Run Steps

Friday, August 3, 2012
When you perform a Test Run, each TS becomes an RS (Run Steps) and is visible in the Test Run viewer.

However, there is no timestamp visible for that RS id. Is there a way to display this to the user?

I assume it would be very easy to return that value from the db based on the creation time of the RS identifier? Apart from running a sql query on the db, what can I do to solve this?

If not already planned, can you please add this to the roadmap? (And maybe accelerate it? It would appear to be a quick-win!!)

Hi Andy

Could you please elaborate what you mean by no timestamp available? If you go to Testing > Test Runs, there is a column for the date/time that the test was executed, do you not see that column?

Hi AQdam.

Yes, the TR is logged with a timestamp, I can see that.

However I'm talking about the RS - each individual step - which has its own id but, looking at the db schema, doesn't currently have a timestamp against it. I wonder if this is a 'quick-win' addition?

It has come about because we are running tests which create large log files, and it would be much easier for us to find the log event evidence that supports a particular Test Step if we could identify the time at which the Step itself was executed, rather than just the timestamp of the Test Run (which, because of the nature of the system-under-test and that each Test Run always takes hours, is effectively useless in this particular regard!).
