Test Step Custom Property on Reports

Monday, August 19, 2019

We added a Custom Property (List) to the Test Step for one of our projects.  When I run the Test Run Detailed Report and view the output as XML, I can see it is not returning any values for it.  I get this instead:




Will I need to use a Custom Report to get to the Custom Properties list values?

Hi Vanessa,

A test step is part of a test case, not a test run, so unfortunately the test step custom properties will not be included as far as I am aware in the XML for the test run detailed report. So you might need to use a custom ESQL style report.

Note: we are having a presentation on custom reporting @ InflectraCon in a few weeks if you available:
