Editing manual test steps during execution

Miroslav Zaninovic (36723) | asked May 12 '20, 3:25 a.m.
Once, when we already applied execution result to test step and proceeded with next step, is it possible to edit description of previous step during the same execution?

It seems that we can edit test step description and expected result during the execution only before we apply execution result to step and proceed to next step.

Is it expected behavior?

Have you seen those limitations?

Note: You cannot update steps during execution in the following scenarios:

  • A test script is associated with the test data
  • The step is an execution variable step
  • The step is a keyword step
  • Columns contain execution variables
  • During mobile testing
  • During offline execution

It is the expected behavior.
It is documented here:
in one of the Notes:
"After you provide a verdict for the step, you cannot edit, add, or delete a step between the steps that are executed."
