Test Suite Covered Requirement

Idea ID 1790076

Test Suite Covered Requirement

The Covered requirement field in a test suite can be contradictory to test cases

For Example:

Requirement Documents: "Visa", "MasterCard", "American Express"

Manual Test "Visa Card Checkout" -> Covered requirement -> "Visa"

Test Suite "VIsa Card Checkout Test Suite" -> Covered requirement -> "MasterCard"

 

You can assign a different covered requirement to a Test Suite than you can to a Manual Test. How can you cover a requirement in the test suite that wasn't covered in a test?

It seems the Covered requirement on the test suite should either:

1) be removed

or

2) be a reference from the test case and not a field you can populate

Status changed to: Waiting for Votes

I think this should be made possible with business rules.
For example, you should be able to add a business rule that collects the req. coverage from all tests and updates the req. coverage of the suite.

We have this on the roadmap. Changing to "Waiting for Votes" to see how common the need is.

Meanwhile possible workarounds could be
- make this field read only
- add a webhook that performs the update based on aggregated coverage, as mentioned above

There's not an option to make covered requirement a read only field. No Results are found.

We have a SAAS model for Octane, is a webhook still an option?

@kimblerc Sure, you can use webhooks both for Octane on SaaS and on-premise.

I also opened a defect re. the fact that Covered Req. is not available in the rule
