Show attachments from a testcase in a testcycle execution

Show attachments from a testcase in a testcycle execution

In zephyr scale you add an attachment to a testcase via the Attachments tab near Traceability tab.

If you add this testcase to a testcycle and execute the testcycle than I don't see that attachment.

See video in attachment of this ticket!

 

Is there a way to see the attachments also in the testcycle execution?

Re: Show attachments from a testcase in a testcycle execution

Hi Nancy,

I'm assuming attachments in that space are for something other than execution and that is why they don't appear in the test player.  However, there is an attachments section in the test player and you can add them there.

 

Hope that helps.

Re: Show attachments from a testcase in a testcycle execution

How can we attach than a file and that we also can see during execution without going back to the testcase itselves?

Re: Show attachments from a testcase in a testcycle execution

Hi Nancy,

 

Sorry, perhaps my explanation wasn't very good - I was in a rush 🙄.  There are 2 options:

 

Attach files to the whole test case, or attach files to test steps in the Test Script:

 

Test Case

In the Test Player, for each test case there is an option to attach files.  To get to the test player you only need to click on the Test Cycle and you're there.  I've attached a screen print showing the location of the Attachments feature where you can add files into the test player.

 

Test Script (Steps):

Another option that is useful is to add files into the Test Script (which shows as the test steps in the lower section of the Test Player).  The advantage here is that you could show for example, screen prints to support expected results , etc.  To add attachments into the Test Script steps, go into the Test Case where before you were clicking on the Attachments tab, but instead of doing that, click on the Test Script tab.  In there, for each step, you will see an option on the right-hand side of the step to Attach Files (screen print also attached for you).

 

Hopefully one of these options is what you're looking for.

 

Best, Andy

Hi,

 

Thanks to help me, but in the testscript tab I don't have the option 'attached files' like you showed in your screenshot (see my screenshot).

 

Do you know how we can add this option? This will help us.

Hi,

 

I guess you cannot see the option because of permissions.  I'm not sure but it could be fixed in your project's settings: Boards > [select your project] > Project Settings (bottom left corner), go to Permissions and take a look at Attachments Permissions - maybe something is not right here and your role does not have access to create attachments?

 

If this doesn't help I think you will need to raise a ticket with SmartBear support - it's not something I am very familiar with.

 

Hope that helps!

Re: Show attachments from a testcase in a testcycle execution

Hi, the permissions are for Jira itselves not specific for zephyr scale.

 

I raised a ticket.

 

But can you tell me that you are using zephyr scale on Cloud?

Hi.  I'm on Server so that might be why there is a difference.

 

Good luck!
