System Status labels


Hi I’m wondering how I can report on the system labels i.e. ‘Untested’ ( as an example). I am unable to select the ‘This status is a final status’ check box (see screenshot)…

However this is disabled yet when creating a ‘custom’ status the option mentioned is enabled. Am I missing something as in using the default system labels or is there a limit on how many of theses can be set to ‘This status is a final status’

Thanks in advance :pensive:


Hello maxjay,

The option “This status is a final status” is used to indicate if a test has been completed e.g. for the Progress reports. As an Untested test is not done yet by definition, this option is not available for this status. We provide the customization options so teams can also change the color for the Untested option as needed.
