how can I create a tree like view of test cases? Is there a better way to organize testcases other than the 1 big case bucket?

During the demo there is a drop down for cases. I can't see any other way to organize the defects. Is there any other way? When I create a set I would like to drag a folder. I'd like to organize testcases into folders based on product/features. Is this possible?

  • I said organize the defects, when I meant to say testcases.

  • I don't find organizing into sets useful in terms of test hierarchy (I use sets differently)

    Rather, try organizing them into custom tags to create your hierarchy.

    create a new test case and in tags enter "top suit, level 1, level 2"
    as the three tags. the test case will belong to all 3. you can drag and drop tests.
    so it top suite it will display all test cases that belong to all 3. and in tag level 1 and will display level 1 and level 2 test cases.

    Pretty close to a traditional hierarchy.

    the paradigm here is tag based and a bit different, but you definitely can organize your test cases meaningfully.

  • Thanks for you help on this. I'm trying to re-think how I do this. A further question. When someone new comes into my organization how would they know what tags to use? In a tree like structure they can browse and learn the structure. With just tags and filters it seems like there would be a longer learning curve.
    I added a tag in a testcase. How do I filter on that tag? I entered the tag name in the case filter and it didn't appear.

  • ooh, it's been a while since I used Tarantula.
    If you are working in a very 'traditional' sort of structure, something like TestLink (open source) works well. But Frank, the right tool for the right job...

    I found that when I trained people to used tarantula or testlink, the learning curve was same and tarantula is less fussy to use (unless they are quality centre/QTP monkeys in which case they couldn't get tarantula paradigm).

    The case search box doesn't search it by tag, but by testcase name. Click on tag to see all testcases belonging to it.

    You can see how it works in their demo:

    http://pts.tarantula.fi/t/home/login

    name:user
    pass:user

    you should be in project AulisPro (check top right corner)
    click on Design Tab
    Click on the security tag under cases , you should see ALL testcases which have that tag (there are 2) and another sub tag User
    Click on User
    you should see a single test case under it and the "path" to that tag list:
    Security>User (right under cases)

    very similar to hierarchy, nay?
