Execution custom field to auto populate from a test case field custom or default

Execution custom field to auto populate from a test case field custom or default

there usually custom fields added to test type issues, example test type - Automated / Manual

And filtering based on these attributes is not possible in Zephyr,

 

So is there a way that a custom execution field gets a value from jira field while adding to test cycle

Hi @anubhavb 

 

Custom fields are possible in Zephyr Enterprise. 

 

They are also searchable and can be used as filter criteria. 

 

Can you describe the full scenario you wish to achieve and I will point you in the right direction 

Be it Zephyr Enterprise, Zephyr Scale or Zephyr Squad. 

 

Given some of the verbiage you mentioned executing in Jira and test type I suspect you may be referencing to Zephyr Scale or Squad? 

 

For Squad I would recommend posting here : https://community.smartbear.com/t5/Zephyr-Squad-Questions/bd-p/ZephyrSquad

 

For Scale I would recommend posting here : https://community.smartbear.com/t5/Zephyr-Scale-Questions/bd-p/ZephyrScale

Re: Execution custom field to auto populate from a test case field custom or default

I'll try to explain further

 

there is a test case with custom field - 'Test Type' = Automated / Manual  [are 2 possible values]

when the test case is added to test cycle there is no way to filter the executions based on 'Test Type'

 

if there is a way to create a test execution custom filed that is linked to a Test case custom field and gets its value when the test is added to the test cycle then the required filtering will be possible.

 

hope this explains

Hi @anubhavb 

 

Ok I understand your workflow. 

 

So, given this is a Zephyr Enterprise thread, I will explain how this is possible using Zephyr Enterprise. 

 

Using custom fields, when configuring these fields you can declare if they are searchable or not. 

 

https://zephyrdocs.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ZE/pages/1558438823/Customize+Testcase+Fields

 

This allows you to built search criteria for use like in custom reports or in your example, test planning and cycle/phase creation. 

 

Now in Zephyr Enterprise, out of the box it differentiates test cases as manual or automated so there is no real need for a custom field.

 

In otherwords using ZQL you can use "automated = true" for automated test cases or "automated = false" for manual when building up a searchable query. 

 

This will provide you with what you need. 

 

Again if you are not using Zephyr Enterprise check out the relevant community threads I pointed to in my initial post. 

 

Hope the above helps
