I agree, this should not be read-only when editing. I can understand the argument of preserving test run history and authenticity of results, but I’m looking for something simple for the developers to use without needing to think/spend much time on it. Therefore, I want them to be able to change a run to ‘Dev tested’ from ‘Untested’ as easily as possible.
This also impacts the reporting as it includes previous runs and not just the latest. I updated the ‘Activity’ of my run report to only include certain status’, but when viewed, they are still included.
I set my Test Case to a status of ‘In Progress’ while I test each step. Once I have tested each step, it would be great to then set the overall status to Passed, rather than adding another Test Result.
This is especially true of when you have many test steps in a Test Case.
At present, I have to create another Test Result and put a note to tell people to check the previous Test Result for details of each test step. The alternative would be copy and pasting in those test step results to the new Test Result which would be a pain, particularly if you have a lot of test steps.
I really like the fact you can setup your Test Cases with test steps and to be able to edit the overall status would be the icing on the cake!
It seems that this problem is also true for the general result itself. I notice that my created test results are editable sometimes (text only) and then other times they are not. Is there any reason why the case would no longer be editable? Is it time based?
