    Re ordering tests in execution grid/flow

    I have tests test1 test2 test3 ... test154

    Now test54 breaks. I fix it in QTP. I delete it from QC and add the fixed version, because QC doesn't allow 'save as'. How do I insert test54 back into the execution grid where it belongs?

    Dragging and dropping in the execution flow I have found to be utterly impractical. As well as drawing all of the lines. Selecting the tests before and after and then selecting 're order tests' does not work, it just goes back to the original order after I do that.

    Please, an answer like "use OTA" or "use OAM" is not useful to me, I need some actual instructions. Yes, I have read the doc and did not see anything addressing this.

    Re: Re ordering tests in execution grid/flow



    Since no one is willing or able to answer this enough for me to get going on it -
    can someone tell me if this feature is in 9.5?

    Re: Re ordering tests in execution grid/flow

    Hi,
    why do you delete your test from QC?
    You can open your original Test (The Test in Execution Grid is only an Instance of the Test in Test Plan) Test Plan Module, modify it and save it (Click on "SAVE"). When you try "Save as" you will have an other Test. But when you only "save" it, you have modified the current Test. Your Testinstance in execution Grid has changed too.

    Regards,

    Re: Re ordering tests in execution grid/flow


    Because I do my debugging in QTP and can't remember all of my changes to edit the QC script. This is because I frequently see problems in the QC, but not QTP.

    OR

    A new test becomes necessary that must be in a particular order in the test flow.

    You could set up one QTP test that calls test1, test2, test .... in order.

    Use a whole heap of insert call to existing action commands.

    That way you hard code the execution order within a master QTP test.

    Re: Re ordering tests in execution grid/flow


    Here is the workaround that I found was easiest/worked best.
    1) Name your tests in alpha-numeric order. No matter what alpha numeric ordering system you choose, leave room to be able to insert tests in case.
    2) Use the execution grid, select the filter by name. Now add your test. It will be in the alpha numeric order.

    Re: Re ordering tests in execution grid/flow


    Darn. That last solution will not always work because for whatever reason, in the execution flow tab the tests get ordered by their date stamp.

    Re: Re ordering tests in execution grid/flow

    Do you know about the feature on the Execution Flow tab where you multi select tests and then right click and choose "Order Tests"? I have found multi-selecting the tests dificult. Ctl or Shift seems to work only sometimes.
    And this method might also be a major pain for 150 tests.
    But this feature does exist.

    Re: Re ordering tests in execution grid/flow


    I've found you can use the mouse to "fence in" tests and then they will all be selected.

    However, I have 135 tests, so this is impractical.

    Then, even if I go through the pain of doing that, I have found that "order tests" - doesn't work! I suspect it may have something to do with having so many tests.

    Re: Re ordering tests in execution grid/flow

    I don't know if I can still post a reply to this thread but anyway here goes..

    Have you tried selecting the Test Set and then use/apply the "Order Tests" feature from the Tests menu bar?
    Because i observed that this doesn't work in the Execution Flow tab.
    Best Regards,

    Babette
