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 the element containing the failed test, then use one of the methods outlined here to display the Testing window or 'Element' tab of the Browser window

Ribbon

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

Start > Desktop > Share > Testing > <test class> > Right-click on test > Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Design > Element > Editors > Element Browser > Testing > <test class> > Right-click on test > Create a Maintenance Defect from this Test

Keyboard Shortcuts

Alt+2 > Testing : <test class> | Right-click on test | Create a Maintenance Defect from this Test
