We are excited to release today our new Quality Management page! Quality Management provides a new, modern experience for managing and organizing test cases and test folders in Agile Central. This page is available under the Quality Menu.
The foundation of the new Quality Management page, shown below, is based on two tables: one for test cases not assigned to a test folder and one for test folders and their descendants.
Figure 1: Modern tabular view of test cases and test folders
Each table provides basic functionality that our customers have come to expect: searching, filtering, sorting, column selection, bulk edit and delete, import, export, etc. But with this page, we have introduced new functionality such as:
Figure 2: Bulk copy of test cases
Quality Management also provides four different views through the view selector:
Figure 3: Choose Test Case, Mixed, Test Folder or charts view
Please see the Help article for more information at Quality Management | CA Agile Central Help.
We are excited to release this new page and eager to hear your feedback.
This is a GREAT thing! Thanks for sharing!
Product Announcement: New Quality Management Page
Like it! It exposes rather a lot of "Unparented" Test Cases from the bad old days.
I kinda knew they were lurking about and had tried and failed to do something about them in a quick and easy fashion. Look forward to having another go now.
Thanks Nev! We appreciate your feedback, keep us posted on your experience with the "Unparented" Test Cases. Our goal was to help you organize those unparented items.
New page looks great.
And it has a much better performance than the old "Test Plan" one for working with test folders !
I additionally asked for a couple of simple improvements on CA Agile Central Ideas :
Hi Agile Central Users! Thanks to your gracious feedback, we've decided to not deprecate Test Plan and Test Cases at this time. We will be examining the Quality Management workflow further in depth to better understand our customers needs.
You will now find that the deprecation message below has been removed from the Product.
In the event that you have further questions or feedback regarding this update, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team via the feedback channel within the Agile Central application.
Good! Before disabling an old page, I think it is important to make sure a new page has time in production to make sure it is as reliable and supports all the features of the old page.
New page is quite useful! The old Test Plan had the ability to Expand/Collapse all folders which was very helpful on multi-nested projects. Could this please be added to the new Test Folders?
Yes, we are also missing that feature, as well as the possibility to add test case results and defects directly from that page (which Test Plan allowed)
Hi @CarolCr, I think small details keep being slipped into Quality Management... (It can't be that I just didn't notice them till later, surely!)
When you have the Test Folder hierarchy expanded to show a Test Case, you can tick the box at the start of the row to select a Test Case, and (now?) get a set of action buttons at the top right of the screen. These include one with a 'play' triangle icon, which will take you to the familiar Test Run screen. This is exactly equivalent to what we can do in Test Plan.
(I always right-click it and 'Open in a New Tab' to avoid losing my place in the original Quality Management tab.)
Yes, @Chase.Fellhoelter! Though a lot of our Projects are so massive I must concede Expand All could be a massive hit on the server, and on the browser rendering it...I'd also really like it if the Quality Management view would expand one more level to show the latest Test Case Result details for the Test Cases within the area clicked -- like the Test Cases tab within a User Story or a Defect does.If it could go one further and include the Notes as a column as well, that would be brilliant.
You could add the the Last verdict column, at least. But there's no way we've found to see the Notes of the last TC Results..
When dealing with a project with multiple sub-projects, it is neat to see all of the child test folders and results rolled up when looking at the parent's Test Folders. However, this would lead to multiples of the same named folder, say 'Regression', per sub-project. It would be great to have the parent project with a single Regression folder that can hold each child project's tests. This is currently not possible because a test case cannot be associated with a test folder of a parent project; only its own project. Could test cases please be allowed to be assigned to a test folder from a parent project?
Would it be possible to copy a test folder along with test cases and test steps. When i try the copy next to the TFID i can only copy the test folder but the underlying test cases are not copied to the newly created test folder.
That would certainly be really useful !
Yes, it will really help to be able to copy a hierarchy of test folders and test cases. Could you also add a feature to ask to confirm before the copy and the possibility to rename the parent instead of (copy) ?
Thanks very much
