Don Yang (7.7k21112139) | asked Sep 25 '14, 5:02 a.m.
RQM4.0 and RQM5.0 tested.
We can rename execution state in Manage project properties > execution state
for example inconclusive to N/A(Following suggestion in
But when running script, I still see the step has the state as Inconclusive but NOT N/A I just renamed, only the script execution result will show the option N/A, is this limitation or something is wrong? how can we make the change apply to step level?
Please advise. thanks a lot

This is an enhancement (verified in RQM 5.0.2).  The new execution state should be propagated to all places it's used.

This is happening with few execution states. Other execution states like Passed, failed can be renamed.

Thanks Subhajit for the info, I haven't tried Passed Failed as these are still required but it is good to know.

 Paul , could you give me the Defect details logged in 5.0.2?

Don Yang commented Apr 14 '15, 2:31 a.m.

Although it was suggested that this should be a defect but the conclusion is this is still "working as expected" and the workitem mentioned by Paul( is actually an enhancement workitem now and still under consideration.
You should be able to access to the above public workitem.
