What does blocked test cases actually mean?

Thursday, July 28, 2011

I've just upgraded SpiraTest to the latest version, and I noticed that under the edit button on test cases screen, theres an option to block test cases. What does this status actually mean throughout the application?

Thanks in advance,

It means that the test case cannot be executed because of some external reason:

  1. The test environment is not ready
  2. There is a failure somewhere else that stops us getting to this test case

Once you have addressed these items, you can then unblock the test case and it will go back to "not run".
