there’s a limit of how many statuses can be used - there’s a few “system statuses” and seven “custom statuses” that are initially disabled. There’s no way to add a new status. There’s the option of adding a new one through the database.
My question now is: are there any known problems that arise if I were to create a 13th status? I have already noticed an error (just a “notice”) on the “Test Runs & Plans” tab. But looking at the line in the source code makes it seem like something that has nothing to do with statuses?
I don’t think 12 statuses is enough. For example, if a testing strategy changes and different statuses are needed, you can’t just rename the old ones as that would also affect pre-existing test runs. I would disable the old ones and create new ones. But that’s not possible.
