Re-Run test cases
accelQ provides a facility to rerun test cases as needed, for a given test execution effort. Consider you are running a test suite with hundreds of test cases, for a specific intent such as "Release 3.0 Regression". It is possible that some of these test cases may fail either due to application configuration issues, or other environment issues. Some times, application slowness could have caused failures due to timeouts.
accelQ provides an ability to select a subset of test cases from existing test result and repeat the execution.
To rerun a test suite or a scenario, open the existing test result from the results list. On the top right corner, click on “Re-Run” button.
System presents a list of test cases that were part of the original run indicating the pass/fail status as well as identifying if a test case was not run. All the failed test cases are pre-selected by default. Review the selection list and kick off the test again.
Consolidated test report
Consolidated report refers to an automatically generated view of test results from multiple re-runs. From multiple re-run reports, for each test case, system picks the latest run and pulls into the consolidated report. This makes sharing and analyzing the test report very seamless and gives unified view to the test execution status.
When you open the report of test run from the result grid, consolidated view is opened by default. From here, it is possible to navigate to one of the individual rerun reports by clicking the link on top right corner.
Note: It is important that all the reruns are aimed at a particular execution effort which requires unified view from analysis perspective. Do not combine multiple unrelated test execution requests with this feature.
Differentiate between a Re-run and a fresh test run
Re-run capability is intended at re-executing failed test cases belonging to a particular execution effort or to repeat execute part of the test cases for whatever reason. Do not use this feature to repeat the executions that are not related or to execute the same test against multiple environments or browser/OS combos.
Configuration changes across multiple re-runs is not allowed. Consolidated test report is not possible when the test configuration is different for each constituent run. With this same intent, following parameters are not allowed to be modified when you are doing a Re-run from an existing report.
- Browser & OS
- App Environment
- Schedule for future run
