Intuitive Test Status Calculation

The complexity of status calculation for test definitions has decreased. Instead of an aggregation of the results, the result of the latest test execution run is now used as the status for the test definition. A "Not Executed" test execution run can no longer overwrite a "Passed" or "Failed" status.

Pre SilkCentral Test Manager 2008 R2

A Test Definitions status is the aggregated result of the statuses of all assigned Execution Definitions, where the version and build are the same. For Example:

A Test Definition has 2 assigned Execution Definitions which have been configured with the same build and version number. Each was executed, one of which passed and one which exited with a status of "Not Executed". The Test Definitions aggregated results is "Not Executed" as one of the Execution Definitions current status for the last execution against that version and build of a product is "Not Executed".
