Refresh TestRuns


#1

Hello,
is it possible to refresh a TestRun Page automatically in the Client-Browser? How can I set this up?
The problem is, that new Changes in the TestRun are not published to the rest of the Test-Crew, they have to refresh their page manually.

Many Thanks

Hello Andreas,

Thanks for your posting. It would be possible to implement this (e.g. refreshing the page based on an interval) but we don’t recommend this as this might refresh the page while the user is actively using it (for example, while adding a test result or reading a test description). I’m happy to add this to our feature request though and we will make sure to look into this for a future version.

If you frequently have many users working on the same test run, you can assign different areas of this test run to different users (distributing the load) so that those users can work independently.

Regards,
Tobias

Hi Amol,

Thanks for your feedback, happy to add another vote. Have you already looked into the three-pane view that were introduced with TR 5.1? This makes it very easy to go through your tests, see the latest results and add new ones:

This was specifically added for users who like to go through the tests and add results on the overview pages without opening the actual test pages.

Cheers,
Tobias
