Test case execution always removes the Owner and changes the last updated column

Thursday, October 2, 2014
We observed during our test case execution, that each execution update the test case as well. The owner will be set to None and the Last Updated date is set too. This happens after the test execution has been finished.
Is this an expected behavior? We have now trouble to find out which test cases have been really modified (means name, description or steps) since a last defined date. This is not possible now, because the execution always changes the updated date.
We need a report of all test cases which have been modified within a given time frame. So far we did it by selecting the by updated date of the test cases, which now not longer works.

Any ideas how we can handle this? We are using SpiraTeam v4.1.0.4.

Hi Kai

You can change this behavior by simply going to Administration > General Settings and unchecking the option:

: Passing a test case unassigns it from its owner

Funny, because my testers' test cases are only unassigned if the test run is Passed - not if it is completed with one step failing.
It is very annoying, because it confuses the testers.
