testcases not added to any testplan

Postby ploinquer » Wed Apr 08, 2009 2:50 pm

I would like to organize my testcases in a testlibrary = test suite in the test specification tab (~500 testcases)
Then I will add seqences of these testcases to test plans (~ 50 testplans = user business cases)

Then I would like to know these testcases I didn't add to any testplan.

In the reporting tab I don't find any mean to get it.

Any hint how to get this information?

I try:
dealing with several hundreds of testcases organized in a testlibrary (= testsuite)
adding 10 or 15 of these testcases to a special testplan
after all test planning is done, i would like to know, which of my testcases I forgot to add/link to a testplan

in result tab there are 2 similar queries:
testcases not assigned to a requirement
testcases not assigned to a tester

i would like to get the information
- testcases not linked to one of my 50 testplans

Here you were speaking about two entities. We will take an example from your above statement

Entity 1: You assigned 15 test cases out of 50 in a test suite to a test plan. and you would like to what are the test cases that were not assigned.

Entity 2: Understand that results are based on the test plan and your execution part. So only those 15 test cases will be visible, but not on all of the your test suites

Your test suite/ test library is just a storage kind of a thing where you will be using when your you need.

Solution: If you go to the test plan you can see the assigned /linked one in coloured(yellow), and by this you can differentiate the both.

PLease let me know if anything else is reuired
Thanks,

you are absolutly right in case of one testplan, but we are planning to specify ~50 testplans for different business cases.
In the testlibrary (= 1 testsuite) we organize 500 - 800 testcases.
In the testplans we group some these testcase (10 ö 20) to a special business case (one testplan = one business case)

To step into each test plan and to explore, which testcase I forgot to add ist very timeconsuming.
therefore I would like a query result, which shows me only these testcase I forgot to add.

In this case also you can know wht you had done and what youd not.

Solution: : While creating atest plan you can copy the other planned test cases to your new test plan automatically. I think by this also your problem can be solved.

thanx for your suggestions to help me,
1 - but because of the fact, that I fear to loose the overview what I did or not while dealing with 500 - 800 testcases, this little feature would be nice.
2 - but we wil specifay testcases and testplans in a 5 person team and we need a overall overview, what we forgot or not

I think we are discussing a wish (new feature) for the future (to be issued in mantis)
