QC8 - deny delete of testset

Jump to solution

Hello all,

 

What would from your opinion be the best way to password protect the deletion of a testset in QC8?

 

It happened once the accidentally deletion of a testset with 1200tests and it wasn't funny in recreating the testset and rerun again.

 

Thanks!

Vincent

You are not able to customize the permissions of the builtin user groups directly. This is why you will generally want to create your own user groups and not use the built-in QATester, Project Manager or Developer.

An alternative option is to limit the deletion options using the workflow script.

Use the group permissions to prevent deletion of test sets and folders from other than TDAdmin users.

If you could even do that in QC 8.0... are you aware that QC 11.0 will soon be unsupported?

Hi Jan,

 

Thanks for the answer!

 

Group permissions seems to be the thing I need, however when I go to Permission Settings all checkboxes are grayed out and I am unable to change the value inside.

 

Do I need some extra rights to modify these?

You cannot change the permissions on a system defined group, like TDAdmin.  You will have to create a new group based on one of the system groups, and then you can change permissions.

 

Jan, you beat me by 13 seconds.  🙂
