A recursive query has encountered an infinite loop condition

Friday, March 23, 2012

New to Spiratest, ghaving trouble getting started. Requirements & and sample Test Cases have been created. There are linkages between Req, TC and Releases. If i go to test steps, they are grayed out. Clicking Execute generates a pop-up with this message.

Creating the Test Runs for this Test Case. Please Wait...

Looking for suggestions on how to move forward.

This particular issue has been resolved as there was indeed a Test Step that had a link (call) to the Test Case it was in. The SQL database sends this error back to Spiratest if there is any recursive link in Test Case/Steps even if it is in a different project.

The online demo software doesn't allow creating a recursive link. Perhaps the issue is now eliminated by an update later than V3.2 (005).
