I am just looking for some discussion on how others use and define their Type field when creating test cases.
For example, what type do you use when creating test cases based on documentation vs bugs/issues? Regression and Functionality seem to be the main types, do you use any others or custom ones? Or maybe that is just an issue that I have that I want to fit everything in to one of those two categories, so some information on how you define what type a test case is would be helpful.
Right now for regression I have anything that I would want to test after testing the bugs/issues to verify that the system as a whole works. As stated pretty much anything that based on a bug falls in to this category for me though.
For functionality, anything that isnt regression falls in to this for me, anything created based on a bug or issue mostly falls in to this.
One other note too, if narrowing the scope on what is defined as a regression test case, do you set up your sections/test suites differently to better define what you want to run for regression when not over-using the regression type label or am I over thinking that a bit?
Thank you for any feedback.
