Copying Test Cases


I frequently copy test cases from project to project.

However, I’m wondering if anyone else has experienced the below?

I copy Test Cases: TC1, TC2 and TC3 (these being the test case Titles) from Project A to Project B.

But, in Project B, they appear in the order TC3, TC1, TC2. (Essentially not in the order they are in in Project A).

This can be a bit frustrating because my cases are in a certain, logical order and it throws me slightly when they’re then in a different order.

Has anyone else noticed this?


Hey Sarah,

Similar query was asked few weeks back here Test Case sort order not retained when copied to a new Test Case.

Could you please have a look at the same ? In case of any additional questions, please let me know.



Yes it’s the same issue as in the other post.
