If I delete a test case section, its associated subsections, and the tests inside Test Case view, does this mess up any test runs that are associated with them? I think it does. And now I just realized I kind of painted myself into a corner.
I messed up when I first imported my test cases. I imported every test that I have, and placed them in a section called Master Test Templates. Then I copied a subset of these into a different section/subsection (called Specific Releases/2.1). My idea was that I wanted to maintain a master repository of test cases, and then just inherit these into specific release testing efforts. I’ve been logging test results against the test run associated with the Specific Releases/2.1 test cases for a couple of days now. But I just realized that what I should be doing is keeping just a single copy of all the test cases (so I only have one place to make edits or to inherit from), and then pulling these test cases into individual test plans and test runs. Right?
So now I’m faced with several man-days worth of work being sunk into test runs that use the Specific Releases/2.1 test cases. Any easy way to get myself out of this mess? Can I ‘re-point’ the existing test runs to the Master test cases and then subsequently delete the Specific Releases test case sections?
