Being new to test rail and having to jump right into testing I began adding testing cases to my base of test cases and the system automatically adds them to the regression runs that are already complete in the past, and then they show up as untested and my percentage complete on already ran test runs gets lower.
I’ve tried creating new runs with only specific test cases in hopes of being able to save all the new cases, so I can go back and delete them from the old test runs that I did not close. And then I had hoped to close them. I can then close them, but if I delete even one, it deletes them everywhere. Again, even if I select specific cases in a new and untested run, then go delete one from a previous test run that has been tested, the test case gets deleted across the board.
Can I close the test runs and then go into them and delete the untested test cases that again, were never in the run, to begin with? All the documentation indicates that once I close a test run, I can’t modify it. So, I am stuck, I either have to show test runs that were complete and done that I forgot to close, that now show a bulk of untested test NEW test cases, which looks terrible for reporting and other people checking to see how the test runs went, or delete all the test cases added step by step, close the test old test runs, and then re-create all the new test cases, which is very time-consuming.
I just can’t believe there is not a way to delete test cases from one run and not have them delete everywhere. Again, I even changed the selection to only specific test cases, copied in what I needed, deleted one and it deleted everywhere. Just as a test in hopes of saving them someplace literally safe, then deleting them from the old test runs so I can close those. But nope, the same thing happens, I delete one and it deletes it everywhere.
I just need them deleted from old test runs so I can close those runs and be done at 100%, which is now showing 84% because of new test cases being added to the old runs. It’s so frustrating.
All your help is greatly appreciated.
