Merge test cases, with results and history


#1

[list=]
[
]One tester created a test case within a specified test suite.[/]
[
]A second tester created a copy and put the copy into a different test suite.[/]
[
]These are true duplicates; there is no difference between them, in the test case itself.[/*]
[/list]

I want to merge these test cases, and retain the history and the test results of both. Something like:

[list=]
[
]Click Merge.[/]
[
]Select a test suite, then select one test case, similar to adding test suites to a plan.[/]
[
]Select which test case will be primary.[/]
[
]Merge![/*]
[/list]

History would then list the original test case ID next to actions, and Test Results would show the original test case ID before the “in [Test Suite Name]” line.

Is this a possible enhancement? Or is this possible now?

Hello Christina,

Thanks for your posting. This is not yet supported but it is planned to add support for linking test cases eventually. This is a complex feature though and while we’ve already made good progress on the planning, we don’t currently have an estimate or expected release date unfortunately.

Regards,
Tobias

Hi guys. Has there been any more work on this feature in the past four years? This feature would be super useful. We have a lot of duplicate test cases as well, and a lot of disorganization of our test suites that is perpetuated by people wanting to retain history and results of every single test case. Being able to merge test cases would go a long way to helping us better organize our test suites and plans.
