Given failedCases / executedCases = defectRate, do any of you use this metric as a measure of quality? If so, has anyone found a way to display the cumulative, project-wide defect rate in TestRail?
What I mean is… on any given day… I see that TestRail has a chart that shows me what percentage of executed tests are in the failed status right now. Once all defects have been corrected and all tests have subsequently been executed and passed, however, there is no longer any evidence of defect rate. TestRail simply displays “100% passed”.
Clearly, before I reached “100% passed”, I executed N test cases, and may potentially have re-executed subsets of those N tests multiple times as fixes were attempted, but failed and perhaps fixed again.
So if I wanted to show the total defect rate of the project or release (Test Plan)… including all executions + failures + re-executions… how do I do this in TestRail?
Is anyone else interested in this metric?
