How to plan new version testing in Jazz

Itzik Levy (111) | asked Jan 19 '16, 9:29 a.m.
I need to manage testing of new version.
The version contain couple of dozen of new feature. Each feature has dozens of test cases.
During the time line of testing and developing the version I will get few builds. On each build few new features in a different state will be delivered.
In addition, I have to communicate a report for each feature. So I need to know the status of each feature during the entire version timeline.(how many test were run/ how many test still to run/how many passed and how many failed)
What will be the best way to manage test for it?

In your case, I would suggest to create a test plan for each version of your product.  Test cases can be reused across test plans or versions.  For each test plan or version, create a timeline for the testing cycle.  Finally, create test case execution records for each test case, tester, and timeline.  Test case execution records can be executed for each build of the product.

My recommendation would be (in order):

2. Read the RQM learning circle (,99fefaae-6bee-43e7-9fb1-6e019e92ed9c).
3. Experiment with the CLM standbox on (

 Thank you Paul for your answer. My problem is that each version contain few features and I need to be able to report an ongoing status ofr each feature (during the timeline of the version). I need to know what is the correct Jazz way to do that.

Thank you

Do you use RTC work items?

Yes, we have features and under each feature we have number of artifacts. Test Cases are linked to the artifacts.

Perfect!  Your test plan (per release) would be linked the development plan for the release.  Your test cases in the test plan would be linked to each feature/enhancement/task in the development plan.  There are a number of dashboard widgets (see to track status or you can create your own custom reports (see or
