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.
