Should be able to copy Manual test to another workspace

...to other workspaces which user has access to.

Makes life a lot easier and testers will be very happy with this functionality

Hi,

What is the use case behind this? 

1. be able to copy so that you can create another similar test more easily
2. be able to use the same test in different workspaces (sharing)
3. other?

Thanks,

Yael

Hi

1. Yes

We have workspaces in which the different applications are maintained. But these applications are reused for different customers which are maintained in other workspaces. So copying a MT from one workspace to another would be very helpful.

But since you're asking number 2 would also be very nice - to create som Manual test template which can be reused in other workspaces but only updated in 1 place:)

thanks

Thanks Jesper.

This is in our backlog, but I am also opening this for voting to see if there are many users interested in this.

 

P.S.
I know it's not a real solution, but you can very easily copy the script itself from the script editor - perhaps this can help with use case #1

For us, this is more than a nice to have, this is a must be.

We chose Enterprise in order to use Shared Space, and we need to share more than parameters and forms.

The use cases are 1 and 2, mostly 2. We use workspaces for transversal projects, projects that involve multiple products. We need to be able to copy MT (including regression tests) from the workspaces of the products to the workspace of the transversal project.

Any idea of when it will be available ?

Thanks,

Eric

@Jesper No updates on the ETA of the full solution (sharing tests) but we are working on a few initiatives which might provide an intermediate solution. One of them is making the Excel export-import much easier.

Agreed.  This functionality is desperately needed as soon as possible.

@Jesper @BToms 
In the next SaaS release (hopefully 15.1.26) we are introducing a much better support for export and import tests via Excel. You can export tests in a format supported for import, including suites and manual test steps.
Please check this out and let us know if it helps.
Regarding the full copy test capability - no updates at the moment.
