Modify Test Case during execution from Test Set RSS Feed

Friday, September 7, 2012
We have several Test Cases attached to a Test Set.  We execute from the Test Set.  During the course of running the Test Cases we find that one of the Test Cases is missing a Test Step.  We want to be able to correct this (add the missing step) in the window where we are executing the Test Case (from the Test Case attached to the Test Set) and have the changes saved to the Test Case.  Can this be done?  If not, what is the recommendation for completing and saving this type of change?

I'd be interested in the answer to this also

We need this feature badly!!!  The test case appears to be locked down once you start execution!

I open the test case in a new tab and edit it so that the next time the test case is executed, it is run with the changes.  When executing a test case (making it a test run), my understanding is that effectively a 'snapshot' of the test case is taken when you click on 'execute' - so can only make changes for the next test run of the test case.

Yes this would be nice, I understand the need to restrict the possibility but on the other hand many of us have a more flexible approach to testers creating and editing test cases, personally I have created a custom role with extended rights for my testers so it would be really nice to have a custom right that allows editing a test case & steps during a test run and assign it to the necessary role.

We miss this too !!

When executing older test cases, the content needs to be updated continuously. This change is typically only seen during execution.
If it is not possible to update the test case during execution, we have to read and update it before executing it. This takes more time (and time is always the limiting factor in testing teams).

What I need:
testers (everybody or via role permissions) able to:
- edit test step description and expected field
- add a step even during execution
- remove steps during execution

thanks for considering this change in the next version. You will make many of your users happy.

Hello folks,

I just wanted to let you know that this enhancement is definitely under consideration for a future release of SpiraTeam. I don't have a definite schedule for it though.

Hi,

Does Inflectra already have an idea in which release this will be included?

Thx

Regards

Currently, there's no firm schedule for providing this functionality. We're looking at ways to incorporate support for exploratory testing. One option is to add an Exploratory Testing feature, where you start with an empty test case and end up with a test case that is passed.

This sounds like a very useful feature indeed. Keep us all posted about how this progresses in your internal discussions. I would definitely use this feature.
