Test Status Types

All tests defined in the Testing window and Test Details dialog have a status value to show what point in the testing cycle the test has reached. The system values you can select from the test Status field are:

Not Run
Pass
Fail
Deferred and
Canceled

 

You can add to or replace any of these values with your own custom values.

This defines the ordering used in the test Status drop down combo boxes, and in sorting any report or list when the Test Status Type is used as the sort-by property.

For example: you have run several tests on a package, and you run a Test Details report; then you sort on the Status column. The report entries are grouped by test status, in the order you defined in this Type field.

 

 

Sort Alphabetically

Reorganize the entries in the Type list into alphabetical order.

 

 

Restore Defaults

Remove all customized Test status values and restore the system defaults.
