Revert test execution status back to 'Unstarted'?


Hello, I’m executing a test run, it’s late at night and I’m also watching the Olympics. As a result, I accidentally mark the wrong test as ‘Passed’ in TestRail. So I want to change the status of that test back to its original state ‘Unstarted’ (or something similar). But I find I cannot do this, as the original state is not one of the available statuses to choose from. Is this really the case?

Moreover, it seems that even when I can edit a specific test execution result, the one thing I cannot edit is the status itself.

Am I missing something?!



Hi Simon,

Changing tests back to Untested is not possible but you can simply change the status to something else (such as Retest) with a comment. Would this work for you?
