 Hi Paul,


As mentioned in your above comment if "total Run time" is not accurate then how do we get the accurate time for test execution...?

Thanks
Kunal

From a feature perspective, this is not supported.  Please open a RQM enhancement.  Of course, you could write a custom report to calculate the execution time for each step result of a test result.  For automated tests, there are options for including metrics in the test results (see https://jazz.net/library/article/809).

Thank you Paul.

We wonder why we need both and why all the summaries (for example, in the test plan) based on the user-entered value and not on the calculated value?

Thanks
Michal

We need both (and we summarize the user-entered value) since the run time for manual test scenarios is generally not accurate. For example, a tester may start a manual test execution and leave it for a period of time before completing the test execution.  In addition, the run time is not available for the offline test execution scenario.

Time spent is an user-entered value in the test case execution record and total run time is calculated total time of an execution result.
