I really like the Test Case filtering feature that was added in 2.5.0, but something it doesn’t do that I wish it did was reapply the filtering criteria for a reloaded Test Plan rather than using the previously selected cases.
For example, lets say I have a ‘System’ Test Plan that we choose to run as part of every Milestone. The first time I create this Test Plan, I load in a bunch of suites, and for each of them choose to Filter on the ‘Type’ field for the value ‘Regression’ and ‘Performance’, and continue on.
This works great for the first time I execute the plan, but by the next time I run the plan, I would have created more test cases of the types I was previously filtering on. If I were to reload the plan to run for the next Milestone, it would not include these new cases, but rather include the Test Cases that were included in the Test Plan when I originally ran it.
It would be nice if there were some checkbox option when selecting cases that re-evaluated test cases whenever you reloaded the test plan, otherwise I have to go through each suite and reapply the filter.
