Incident Creation and Automated Tests

Tuesday, August 24, 2021


I noticed in the SpiraDocs that it is possible to create an incident via running manual test cases, but what about automated test cases? I am using the Remote LaunchX jar to run my tests. Is it possible for me to have an incident created automatically when my automated test case fails?

We have considered it in the past, but in general we have found that in reality logging defects for every automated test fail results in lots of unnecessary noise. Instead we recommend using the failed test runs that are currently generated to detect failures which can be investigated. Once those have been confirmed, you can then log a defect and link that to the test run.
