Hi @sagard75,
Regarding your second comment on My Tasks not showing TER, the purpose of My Task is to list the quality task assigned to you. Often this task address the need where you want to assign construction of a stub artifact or specific section of a artifact. e.g. "Complete Exit criteria section of Test case Login as Administrator"
Such quality task has got a lifecycle and gets resolved and closed similar to defect in RTC.

However TER is conceptually different and it is a token to execute a testcase for a given test plan for a selected iteration, for a given Test Environment, This TER can be executed multiple times or just once. A user should often goto View Testcase Execution Record and filter it with Owner == his id, to figure out what TER is assigned to it. Moreover if looking for perticular iteration or test plan, can filter TER further.

RQM 4.0 also provides widgets which you can display on your dashboard. This widgets can list TER based on the shared/personal query. So may be create a shared query say "All TER assigned to current User for Test Plan abcd"
Each user can configure this widges on his personal dashboard or it can be deployed to shared dashboard by the lead. In either case it display TER's pertaining to the user logged in.

Hi Shiva,
You can create a Testcase Execution Record. The owner of the Testcase Execution Record is the one who execute it.
Goto Testcase section of Test Plan. Select testcases which you want to execute and then click Generate Execution Record. For more info please read Testcase Execution workflow

Hi Pramod,

Thanks for info. I creates test execution records and assigned owner to them. I have following observation

When I am assigning Owner to TERs, I can see all the users registered in RQM. I expect to see only those who are present in the team area associated to the test plan that I am using to select test cases. Could you let me know the reason behind this?

Moreover, after TERs are created, I expect that when the user who is assigned the ownership of TERs logs in to RQM, that user should see the assigned task of test execution in 'My Tasks' section in project dashboard. But, I do not see that. Please let me know the reason.

Hi @sagard75, No that option is not available, it does not filter user based on the team area users. Please raise  RQM New RFE
