Setting Up Automatic Test Case Suspicion

Creating Test Cases

The following table lists the inheritance rules for test inputs:
Setting Up Automatic Test Case Suspicion
TestManager can automatically identify and mark the link between a test input and a
test case as suspect, if a meaningful change occurs in a test input. You must set up
automatic test case suspicion in built-in test input adapters and in custom test input
adapters for TestManager to mark test case suspicion automatically.

RequisitePro requirements as test inputs
If you use RequisitePro requirements as
test inputs, you can mark requirements types for external traceability. If a
requirement that you mark in RequisitePro for external traceability changes,
TestManager automatically marks as suspect the link between that requirement (test
input) and its associated test case. For information about setting up RequisitePro
requirements for external traceability, see external traceability:marking requirements
in
the RequisitePro Help.
Test Input Inheritance Rules
If
And Then
You associate a test input
with a test case
then you create a configured
test case
the configured test case
inherits the associated test
input from the parent test
case.
You create a configured test
case
then you associate a test
input with the parent test
case
the configured test case
inherits the associated test
input from the parent test
case.
You remove a test input
association from a test case
that has a configured test
case
the inherited test input
association is removed from
the configured test case.
Note:
You can only remove
an inherited test input
association from a
configured test case by
removing it from the parent
test case.
