Specifying the Owner
You can select the owner of the test case from the
Owner
list in the
General
tab of the
New Test Case dialog box.
The Owner list contains the User IDs of the test users that were added to the project
through the Administrator. (For information, see the
Rational Suite Administrator's Guide
or the Rational Administrator Help.)
The owner is important for planning and tracking purposes. For example, you could
run a Test Case Distribution report to see the test cases distributed over the owners.
For information about reports, see Reporting Results on page 173.
