Dynamic Test Case Filtering not working for Sections

I’m trying the new dynamic test case filtering. My usage was to set a single section (i.e. test case folder) so that any new tests added to that section automatically appear in my test run. I assumed this was the intended behavior of this feature. But when I add a test to the folder my test run never updates its test cases.

Hi @asher - you can accomplish this by setting the filter to your desired sections, rather than selecting them specifically using the checkbox approach.

See the docs here for more info: Dynamic Filtering

I did set the filter. Then I clicked Set Selection (which then auto-checked the checkboxes). I also tried setting the filter without Set Selection but then nothing gets chosen and I can’t save the test run.
I recorded this behavior but don’t want to post that in the forum. I can send it directly to you if you want to see what I’m doing.

Hi Asher - sure, send me the details and we can take a closer look.

Hi Simon,

Here’s a loom video showing what I’m trying to do. Let me know if this is user error / mis-undertsanding or if the feature isn’t behaving correctly.

Hi @asher - I’ve attached some video demonstrating the dynamic filter functionality adding a new case to a filter defined by section. Hopefully this helps you, but please do let us know if you have any further questions or issues!

Hi Simon.

Thanks for the video. I replicated your steps exactly, and the first I did it the dynamic selection didn’t work. After I created a new test in the desired folder (just like you did on the video) it changed my test run setting from ‘Dynamic Filtering’ to ‘Select specific test cases.’ I didn’t capture that on a recording :frowning: However, on subsequent attempts the filtering all performed as expected. So for now I’ll roll with it (I understand it’s beta) but I wanted you to have the feedback.

Thank you getting back to me on this. I appreciate the customer focus.

Asher
