How can I lock test cases for specific Configuration?



I would like to ask your suggestion regarding the best practices for test cases locking for specific configurations.
For example when in one Test Suite there are scores of test cases and part of them can be executed for one type of configuration and other port for another configuration. And I would like to prevent mistakes with assignment of test cases with configuration which does not support them.

Thank you.


Hi Fedor,

Thanks for your posting! One common approach here is to add a custom field on the test case level for the configurations (e.g. of type dropdown or multi-select). You can then use this field to filter cases on the Select Cases dialog when you create your test plan:

This can be configured per configuration so you can use a different case selection per configuration/run.
