linking test sets to a release

Friday, June 20, 2014

Hi im having issues linking test sets to a release

e.g  I create a release called  "Test Release"

I then go into the release and "Create Test Set From This Release"

This then maps say 40 test cases through and if i go to release it states 40 Not Run cases, so far so good.


Now I want to create another Test Set with say 200 regression tests for the same release.  If I go through above again then when I go into Release after all done then it states just the 200 not run, not the 200+40 i would expect


Can you please advise?.

Hi Alan

The option Create Test Set From Release will actually create a new test set each time, it doesn't add the test cases to the existing test set.

To do that, go to Testing > Test Cases, filter the test cases by Release and then choose the option Tools > Add to Test Set and choose your existing test set.

Hi Adam - thats not what im after here

I want 1 release with 2 test sets (one test set to have 200 test cases; the other to have 40 test cases)

When I then click on the release i want it to show 240 test cases not run

Hi Alan,

I'm going to take a stab at this one, since Adam's on vacation.

When you "Create Test Set from this Release", it simply creates a new test set containing all test cases that are currently mapped to the release. I'm having trouble understanding your question. What did you do between creating the first test set and the second test set?
