Nested Releases - Test results roll up

Friday, March 18, 2016

I have configured following hierarchy in Releeses tab:

-> subRelease 
---> Iteration

When I execute one testcase = create test run for the Iteration, I'm not able to populate the test results up to root parent which is Release. E.g. in Testcases tab I see just following overview

Release NOT RUN
-> subRelease FAULT
---> Iteration FAULT

I was wondering why the overall result of release is "NOT RUN"?. I have made sure the testcase are mapped to both releases and iteration.

In Spiratest forum, I have found out this related thread, with such statement:

> 31. Octobber  2011
> Currently the test results will only roll-up from Sprint to Parent Release. They don't roll-up from sub-release to parent release. This was originally by design because releases were considered separate from a test results perspective. However based on feedback from customers > we're planning on making this configurable.

Is there an already solution for this issue? I'm facing a consideration of designing/mapping of our Release/Iteration/Build hierarchy to allow scalable test result filter. I would probably don't use subRelease if there is such roll up limitation. I would not make sense

Than you,

Hi Josef

If you look at our recent blog entry on SpiraTest v5.0 - Releases that Roll Up, you will see  that v4.2 doesn't have support for the Release > Sub-Release > Iteration reporting that you are looking for, but that it is part of our v5.0 release coming up.

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for your quick and kind answer. It is nice to hear that heal is upcoming.

Do you have a rough expectation when the version 5 comes out? In a month, half a year, 1 year?

In case I prepare my release structure as Release > Sub-Release > Iteration already today, will I be able to keep my work and migrate my V4.2 project to V5 in order to benefit from the Release Roll up feature?
