Create Maintenance Item From Test

If an element fails a test, one likely consequence is that a Defect (Issue) item has to be raised in model maintenance to correct the problem. You can generate this Defect item directly from the test that failed.

Access

Select an element, then use one of the methods outlined here to display the Testing window and show the required class of tests. Then, in the Testing window:

  • Right-click on test | Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Alternatively, select an element, then open the Element Browser window and within the Testing folder:

Right-click on test | Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Ribbon

Construct > Testing > Test Windows > <test class> > Right-click on test > Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Start > Explore > Element Browser > Right-click on test > Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Keyboard Shortcuts

Alt+3 : <test class> | Right-click on test | Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Alt+9 : Right-click on test | Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Complete the Defect item as necessary - you might provide values for the 'Reported By', 'Status' and 'Priority' fields.
