During a TestRun review (for automation) we have a number of failures, a number of them which will be known and will have an assigned Defect against them in a previous testrun.
We can see these previous defects by clicking on the testcase result, and then clicking on the Defects tab at the bottom (it shows all the defects ever logged).
It would be really nice if we could have a column on the main page that would show any defects ever associated to that testcase; rather than having to click on the tab.
i’m guessing that this would be a massive load on the DB (search query); so if it could even just search back a few runs of the testcase. or if it was an option (warning: page will be slow).
in anycase, the use case here is that as testcases fail from build to build; it would be really nice to be able to see at a glance if there was a previous defect filed without having to go through the extra clicking to see previous defects. Or even if there was a way to move that defect information to the top or have that tab automatically selected (yup, more scripts to potentially write!).
