Making a field required for report generation

Thursday, August 18, 2022

I have a report for a Test Run Summary which I want the user to specify a release before running the report. There is a drop-down box for selecting a release. However, if the user does not select a release, it will generate the report for all releases, which is too much information.

Is there a way to make the drop-down box a required field? So that an entry must be selected before the test can be run.


Many thanks,

Hi Matt

I'm afraid that is not possible.

Hi David,

Thanks for getting back to me. In that case, is there a way to text for the selected Release value in the XSLT code?

I know you can read Custom Properties using the following method:

<xsl:value-of select='CustomProperties/CustomProperty[Name="Custom_01"]/Value'/>

Can I do something similar to read the selected Release value from the drop-down?
