Reporting multiple defects in a Test Result



When reporting defects in a Test Result it is only possible to link one defect report per TR.
If a Test Case reveals several problems that results in more than one defect report, a work-around
is to create one Test Result per defect but it seems a little awkward.

Is there a better way of reporting multiple defects in one TR?




Separate issue ids with comma works fine.




Hi Janne,

Yes, this is fully supported and you can simply add multiple issue IDs by separating them by comma. This is supported for both the Defects and the References fields.



Hi Tobias.
We do use commas and it works fine for us. The problem is with the generated reports - the defects summary shows only results containing single defect. For those cases with multiple defects, the defects column is empty.
