How to find which test cases are not in any test cycle?

Is there any way to find which test cases are not included in any test cycle?

  • Hi Johan,

     

    It seems simple enough but I haven't been able to find a report or feature to achieve this.

     

    It's a hack but the way I managed to do this was to run the Traceability Report and filter by folder (selecting all subfolders - there's an icon on the right-hand side you need to click to activate).  Choose all test executions and run the report.  Once it's run you can use the browser Find feature to search for "none", and then scroll down the list looking for a value of None in the Test Execution Results column.  If you find one, it means the test case hasn't been added to a test cycle (because if it had, it would have a test execution result of at least Not Executed).

     

    In my test of the above process, when I ran the report I had 600+ test cases.  The report took a few minutes to load but the Find feature didn't work for about 5 minutes - there must be some indexing going on within the browser.

     

    Anyway, hope that helps.
