How can I export test cases belonging to one test cycle?
we were running our tests on squad for quite some time. At the time of delivery, I exported all the test cases that we used during the testing of this release as an xml and delivered that to the customer too. Since every test case had a solution version it was easy to filter out the test cases in Jira.
Now we switched to scale, and I cannot do the same here as it seems. In the cycle I see all the testcases we use and can select them too, but I cannot export from here. In the overview of test cases on the other hand I can export the cases, but I cannot filter on the solution version because that is a trait of a cycle.
So now the question arises how to do my export.
I could use a custom field in the test cases to track the covered version but that is not very practical for several reasons.
I hope some one can point me to a easy to use solution 🙂
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you're looking to get the cycle version for each test case in that cycle, you can get this data by running a report like 'test execution results (list)', then export the data to Excel. The export has a lot of data that is not visible in the on-screen report, including cycle version.
Let me know if that doesn't help what you're looking for?
thank you for your reply. The export that I have to do ist the test cases themselves. I have to export the textcases as xml so the customer can import the cases to their system.
In order to do this I have to know which testcases where part of the test cylce for this release.
I can look at the cyle and see all the testcases but I cannot export from that view.
I can see why this is a challenge. It's a shame this functionality doesn't already exist as it seems a logical thing to have. I'm trying to think of a way to work around this issue and am wondering if a combination of the report I mentioned plus the API might help. You'd use the report to get the test cases within a test cycle, and then use the test case data (e.g. key) as criteria to pass into the API to get the test case/script data that your customer needs.
I don't know what version of Zephyr you're using but have posted links to the Cloud & Server versions of the API - they're similar but not identical:
Hope this helps. There's always the support team too who you can reach here: Support Portal
thank you for your help. I already thought of the API but it could work easier in combination with the report you mentioned.
I will let my dev colleagues try this.
I just wanted everyone to know the situation. It was unfortunately not a feasible solution to work with the API and the report. I contacted the support and got the answer that they are sorry for the lack of this important feature.
They recommended to use my workaround with the checkbox or multi-select.
They also suggested to open up a feature request, which I did:
Thank you for your help!
But maybe I’m misunderstanding something about your question as you mentioned executing from a Jira ticket?
