Question on reusing test cases across multiple releases

Mike Griffiths (345) | asked Jun 06 '13, 11:16 a.m.

I have the following scenario:
I have 1000 test cases, each test case has a test script. This covers testing for "Release 1" of my product.

When "Release 2" comes along I reuse the same 1000 test cases, but some features have changed so I add second test scripts to a subset of test cases.

I know in the TCER's I can specify the "Default Test Script".

Other than opening each TCER individually and setting the default test script for each TCER one by one. What would be the workflow so a tester could generate TCERs from a Plan, and set the correct test script to use depending on the release they are testing?

For example, I could add a Category to the test scripts to identify which release the script is for. But how would the user set the correct test script on thousands of TCERs?

@mike - keeping one test script per test case is straight forward (since you have 1000s). one way to do it is to duplicate the test cases for release 2 and add the appropriate test script as the default..
