Duplicating execution records to another iteration

You can copy a selected list of test cases or test suite execution records in a test plan to another iteration in that test plan or a different test plan that you select. For example, you might want to duplicate execution records that were deferred, inconclusive, failed or blocked in the current iteration.

Before you begin

Be aware of the following requirements:

  • The selected test plan and its project area must be set up to use iterations. This means that the test plan must include a test schedule section that associates iterations with the test plan.
  • Test cases and test suites that are parents of the execution records must be associated with the selected test plan.
  • All test case or test suite execution records that you want to copy to the next iteration must be associated with the same test plan.

About this task

Complete the tasks below to copy test execution records to another iteration:
Duplicating Test Case Execution Records to another iteration from a test case or test suite
Duplicating Test Case Execution Records to another iteration from a test plan

Duplicating Test Case Execution Records to another iteration from a test case or test suite

Procedure

  1. Open a test case or test suite to the Test Case Execution Records or Test Suite Execution Records section.
  2. Display the execution records that you want.
    • Configure the display settings to show the columns that you find the most useful, for example, Failed Points, Inconclusive Points, Total Points, Defects, and so on.
    • To view all of the execution records at once, select Show All in the Items per page field, or set the number of items per page to a different value.
    • Filter or sort the list, or use an existing query to show the execution records that you want. As an alternative, use the Traceability view by clicking View As > Traceability.
  3. Select the execution records that you want to copy to another test plan, test case, test suite, or iteration.
  4. Click the Action Menu (Expand/Collapse) icon for any of the selected execution records and click Duplicate Execution Record or Duplicate number of selected execution records Execution Records.
  5. In the Duplicate Execution Records window, next to the Test Plan field, click the Select Test Plan icon, select a test plan, and then click OK. In the Copy To field of the Duplicate Execution Records window, the selected test plan is displayed. Optionally you can select a test case or test suite to copy to. The test case can be associated with the selected test plan, be in another test plan, or not be associated with a current test plan.
  6. Select an iteration to which you want to copy the execution records; then click OK.

Duplicating Test Case Execution Records to another iteration from a test plan

Procedure

  1. Open a test plan to the Test Case Execution Records or Test Suite Execution Records section.
    Note: If necessary, click Manage Sections to add a section to the list of test plan sections.
  2. Display the execution records that you want.
    • Configure the display settings to show the columns that you find the most useful, for example, Failed Points, Inconclusive Points, Total Points, Defects, and so on.
    • To view all of the execution records at once, select Show All in the Items per page field, or set the number of items per page to a different value.
    • Filter or sort the list, or use an existing query to show the execution records that you want. As an alternative, use the Traceability view by clicking View As > Traceability.
  3. Select the execution records that you want to copy to another test plan, test case, test suite, or iteration.
  4. Click the Action Menu (Expand/Collapse) icon for any of the selected execution records and click Duplicate Execution Record or Duplicate number of selected execution records Execution Records to this test plan or Duplicate Execution Record or Duplicate number of selected execution records Execution Records to another test plan.
    • Duplicate Execution Record or Duplicate number of selected execution records Execution Records to this test plan:

      In the Duplicate Execution Record to this test plan window, by default, the current test plan is selected in Test Plan field.

    • Duplicate Execution Record or Duplicate number of selected execution records Execution Records to another test plan:

      In the Duplicate Execution Records to another test plan window, by default, the current test plan is selected in Test Plan field.

    You can accept the selection or select another test plan to copy the execution record to.
  5. In the Duplicate Execution Record to this test plan or Duplicate Execution Record to another test plan window, select a test case to copy to. The test case can be associated with the selected test plan, be in another test plan, or not be associated with a current test plan.
  6. Select an iteration to which you want to copy the execution records; then click OK.

Results

The selected execution records are copied to the other test plan, test case, and iteration, depending on your selections. All attributes of the original execution records are copied, except for time spent, result, associated defect, and originator.
