Method to lock a test case



Is there a way to lock a test case to prevent it from being edited/deleted? The use case I am considering is having a test case template that the user copies when making new test cases. Having a safety net built in to prevent this test case from being deleted would be nice. Is there any way to do this? Or is there another method that works for creating test case templates?



Hello Chris,

Thanks for your posting! One option to implement this is to create those test cases in a special “template” project or similar and you can easily manage access & permissions via the project permissions in this case:

Permissions on the test case or suite level are currently not possible but the project permissions could be a workaround in this case.
