Update the test case status

After performing all tests in a test case, update the test case status.

About this task

Set the Execution Status on the Test Case form to one of the following values.

  • Passed: all tests assigned to this test case have a status of Passed.
    • The result is updated on the Test Plan form in the Test Cases related list.
  • Failed: one or more of the tests assigned to this test case have a status of Failed.
      • The result is updated on the Test Plan form in the Test Cases related list.
      • The Report Defect link appears next to the Execution Status field on the Test Case form. If necessary, click this link to create a defect. For more information, see Report a Defect from a Failed Test.
      • To link an existing defect to the test case, click the Assign Defect related link. For more information, see Assign A Defect to a Test Case. When you link a defect to a test case, a reference to the test case is stored in the defect record. The Test Case form displays a related list of defects and the defect record displays a related list of test cases.
  • Blocked: one or more of the tests assigned to this test case have a status of Blocked.
    • The Blocked Reason field is displayed on the Test Case form. Enter a reason why the test case is blocked before saving or updating the form.
  • Retest: a defect resulting from a failed test has been closed or canceled and the test is ready to be run again.

The status of a test does not affect the status of the test case. Setting the status of the test case is a manual operation.
