Rerunning a Suite with same Assignee's



A question that has popped up here at work is when using the ReRun ability for ceratin testcases (failed, skipped, or whatnot) then the rerun should also copy the the initial Assigned To field.

This way when a testplan in general is created via a ReRun, all the original ownership is kept intact.

Is there a way to do this right now – I couldn’t figure it out. If not, can we add it to the myriad of future enhancements (a simple checkbox would work for this).



Hi Jim,

Thanks for your posting! If you used the Assigned To attribute on the test run level to assign tests, this will also be carried over/preselected when you rerun a run/plan. Manual changes to the assignments are not automatically copied currently. I agree that it would make sense to offer an option to do this and we are happy to look into this for a future version, thanks for the suggestion!
