how to manage retest of defects in multiple workstreams
I have a problem with defects and need an elegant, simple solution if possible
What is the best way to handle retesting in several areas, for example development, data, transform, Integration and uat. We need to be able to signal that something is ready-for-test in a number of areas within a number of test stages.
I am considering seperate instances for each area, so that defects can be raised, promoted down therough each instance to the defect source. Then can be fixed,retested and closed within each area and to then promote across to the next stage as fixed until finally closed. I have also considered adding extra Statuses and building a workflow, but this needs to consider that there are several test stages, each with a slightly different number and remit of stages. So any defectprocess changes for one stage still has to be relevant to other stages
Re: how to manage retest of defects in multiple workstreams
It's depends of your next step, If you next step is Make some reports for each area, Maybe the simple solution is made several TestSet. This solution also provide you that you can made some test in parallel mode. And if you use more status maybe you can made test in parallel.
If your process is almost perfect and you dont have to made parallels test (For example data, intergration ) maybe it's a better solution use more status.
