Tips for the Test Runs List

  • For ALM users, the Test Runs list contains the list of all the tests you can include in your next run. Any changes you make to the Test Runs list do not affect the Test Lab module in Application Lifecycle Management.

  • When you click the Run button, only active tests in the Test Runs list are run. For details on how to activate and deactivate tests, see the description of the context menu (right-click) options in the Run Setup Area. Deactivated tests appear disabled (gray) in the Test Runs list.

    • After you run a test, the test becomes deactivated in the Test Runs list. To run the test again, you can use the context menu (right-click) options to:

      • Activate the test. In your next test run, the current run will continue.

      • Add a new run for the test.

      • Replace the current run with a new run.

  • You can indicate which columns to display in the Test Runs list and add columns to the display, by clicking the Select columns button or right-clicking on the column headers. You can also resize columns and drag columns to change the order in which they are displayed.

  • For ALM users, a warning symbol next to a test indicates a problem with the definitions for that test. When you select the test, the warning sign is also displayed next to the node that is causing the warning. Select the node and review the displayed definitions for any warning messages. For details, see the Run Setup Definitions Group

  • For ALM users, a lock symbol next to a test indicates that the test is currently locked. This occurs when the test or run is locked in Application Lifecycle Management.

  • For a full description of all the features in the Test Runs list, see Run Setup Area.
