Why is there missing data in the Manual Test Definition Result Document report?


When I open the "Manual Test Definition Result Document" report from the Reports module in SilkCentral Test Manager by giving correct execution ID, the correct data is passed to most of the fields however Step Name, Step Description and Expected Result etc data fields are empty.

The reason the issue is occurring with this report is because of the use of linked test definitions. When executing such test definitions and viewing the report, the report does not find the steps to the manual test definition, because they exist just once and are children of the "real" test definition.

To resolve this issue go the Test Manager - Reports module of SCTM and select the "Manual Test Definition Result Document" report (which is in Test Plan/Manual Tests).

SQL Edit

Paste in the SQL query shown below (also in the attached text document SQL.txt).

SELECT node.Name AS "Test Definition Name",
node.Description AS "Test Definition Description",
mtd.PlannedTime AS "Planned Time",
