Perhaps I missed something in the use of the term "review option" but if you're trying to establish why the State of the test case doesn't change in accordance with the actions that might take place in the Formal Review section, the update of State is not intended to be automatic.  The approvers and reviewers from Formal Review section do their thing (approve, review) and notifications drive the test case owner to manually update the State as appropriate.

Hi Jerry

Thanks very much for the inputs.

I'm also curious to know the presence of the "Review Test Case" >> "Mark as Reviewed / Rejected" that we see when we browse the test cases via "Construction" menu in RQM ?

So selecting/marking the testcase as "Reviewed" / "Rejected" operate in the similar way as we do in the "Formal Review" section ??

In general, What happens when the reviewers and approver's approve the test case using this option from the browser test case?

Thanks in advance

Hi Jerry

Reason for asking this question is , we also see the Test case status info as soon as we open the test case as well as see the status info in the Formal Review section.? So is there a flow that needs to be followed while marking a test case as "Reviewed" / "Approved" / "Rejected" ??

Thanks Rajesh

The answer is really that it's up to you.   The only real "flow" through a testcase is governed by the changes you make to State through the Action values (ie ready for review, approve, reject, reopen, retire).   The criteria that drives these state changes is entirely customizable.    If that means a "Formal Review" must be conducted by multiple parties then that is your criteria for moving to the next state.  If that means all "Pre-Conditions" must be met then that's what it means.   This definition can be driven entirely by your (collective within the team) needs.

Hi Jerry

Thanks for the inputs. So, what is the purpose of having the review option in browse test case window?

Jerry Shengulette commented Sep 12 '12, 12:50 p.m.

The one on the pulldown that lets you do mass review or reject? If so, then it's to allow same action on multiple test cases at the same time.

When I select to review the test cases for which I'm not a reviewer, what happens ??

For Example:

  1. Assign user A as reviewer for 3 test cases.
  2. Login as user A and try to select 5 test cases and then try to review / approve them.
