Workaround: Generate fails for large number of test case execution records

Summary

If you attempt to generate greater than 600 test case execution records at once from a test plan, the generate operation can fail.

More Information

Problem

When you try to generate test case execution records (TCERs) in bulk for a test plan, if the count goes above 600, then generation of the TCERs fails with an "Operation Failed" message. Although it has been observed that generation fails when the count goes above 600, it could be a different number in other environments when TCER generation fails.

Workaround

Avoid the TCER generation failure by selecting a subset of test cases to generate TCERs for.

  1. Open a test plan that contains the test cases to generate TCERs for.
  2. In the Test Cases section of the Test Plan editor, select a subset of the test cases to generate the test case execution records in bulk. For example, if you want to generate 1000 TCERs, start by selecting 500 test cases.
  3. Run the Generate Test Case Execution Records wizard.
  4. Once you have clicked finish on the wizard, then save the Test Plan to create the first 500 Test Case Execution Records.
  5. Select the remaining 500 Test Cases and run the Generate Test Case Execution Records wizard. Tip: You can use filtering within the Test Case section of the test plan to limit the number of Test Cases to select.
