Milestone View: Include detailed test run results


#1

Sometimes we just want to take a screen print of a TestRail page to send to external parties that shows how we are tracking with our testing.

The Milestone page is often used to link multiple plans together, however the page only shows the percentage of completed tests.

It would be great if we could get a Detail view option to display the individual passed / failed / blocked / untested etc. lines on each Test Run entry within the milestone/view page.

Hi Glenn,

Thanks for your posting! You can already generate a Detail view using the print option. If you click on the printer icon, TestRail generates a more detailed view for the milestone including test run and test statistics. Would this work for you? Or are you looking for something else?

Cheers,
Tobias

Hi Tobias,

Not quite - with the detail view, the results are interspersed with the run names. The view of the report then ends up looking like:

Milestone name
Overall progress
Run / Plan A and percentage completion (no individual pass / fail etc. stats)
Run / Plan B and percentage completion (no individual pass / fail etc. stats)
Run / Plan C and percentage completion (no individual pass / fail etc. stats)

Run / Plan A overall progress inc. pass / fail etc. stats
Individual Run progress inc. pass / fail etc. stats
Individual Test progress

Run / Plan B overall progress inc. pass / fail etc. stats
Individual Run progress inc. pass / fail etc. stats
Individual Test progress

Run / Plan C overall progress inc. pass / fail etc. stats
Individual Run progress inc. pass / fail etc. stats
Individual Test progress

We are after a more succinct view that excludes the individual test runs within the plans and does not show the individual test results - something more like:

Milestone name
Overall Progress
Run / Plan A overall progress (not just percentage)
Run / Plan B overall progress (not just percentage)
Run / Plan C overall progress (not just percentage)

We would achieve what we want by having the additional line of information for each Test Plan within the Milestone view.

We will probably create a ui script to do this as we already have access to the figures we need in the DOM of the milestones/view page.

Thanks for the additional details, Glenn! I believe the milestone page already displays the details you are looking for, but only for active test runs/plans:

Can you confirm this?

Cheers,
Tobias

Thanks Tobias.

The Test Runs in this view are showing the equivalent level of information that the “Medium View” shows on the Test Runs & Results page. We’re after the equivalent of the Detail View:

Thanks, Glenn, got it :slight_smile: You can hover over the chart on the right to see those details but I understand that it’s more convenient to display them directly on the page.

Cheers,
Tobias
