  • Added the Ability to Associate a Version of Test Case to a Cycle and/or Release help icon QMetry Release Notes
    QMetry allows users to test against different versions of a Test Case. When updating a Test Case users have always been able to let past Cycles and/or Releases keep the older version of the Test Case associated with them (e.g. don't update Test Case in all builds). Now users will be able to select a default version for both older and new Releases and Cycles. This is designed primarily to help companies that need to test updates to hardware or software versions that have different functional Requirements that change Test Cases over time.
  • Added the Ability to Name a Version of the Test Case (Enterprise Edition) help icon QMetry Release Notes
    Test Case versions can be named and a comment can be added to help track versions. This helps those customers that need to test against multiple versions of a Test Case. Customers can tag each version of a Test Case and display it in the drop-down list to identify correct versions to test.

  • The Names of the Linked Requirements (or Linked Test Cases) are Now Available on Export help icon QMetry Release Notes
    "While the grid view only shows the number of linked Requirements (or Test Cases) to avoid delays in rendering, QMetry has enabled the names and ID's for export to CSV. The CSV file puts the names and ID's into the "Linked Requirement(s)" or "Linked Test Case(s)" cell (e.g. If a Test Case had 3 Requirements then the "Linked Requirement(s)" cell for that Test Case row would have 3 Requirements listed - separated by line breaks)".
  • Improved Organization of Assets Within Project, Release, Cycle and Backlog help icon QMetry Release Notes
    Test Cases and Requirements have always been linked to projects; however, when creating new Test Cases and Requirements they were previously forced to be associated with a Release and Cycle (Sprint). Now Test Cases and Requirements can be placed directly in the Backlog by associating them with the project only, or with a Release, but not a Cycle. This allows users to plan ahead and create Test Cases and Requirements in the project before a Cycle has been identified.
  • Improved the Performance of the Tree View help icon QMetry Release Notes
    Performance of expanding the Tree View has been improved using AJAX.
  • Improved the Export/Import Mapping help icon QMetry Release Notes
    When QMetry exports to a CSV file, the column names are now the same that are used in importing using the 'Auto Map' feature.
  • Improved Color Coding of Dashboard to Provide Better Differentiation help icon QMetry Release Notes
    Additional colors have been added to the palette to make it easier to identify the different values.
  • Added Support for Different Ports from Default 80/443
  • Enhanced Free Text Fields to be Resizable help icon QMetry Release Notes
    The objective field is now resizable.
  • Added Two (2) New Jasper Reports Showing the Test Runs Performed (Enterprise Edition) help icon QMetry Release Notes
    The reports provide the following information: 1. A summary of Test Suites showing the number of Test Runs organized by status for each Test Suite, and the total number of Test Runs for each Test Suite.
    2. A long form Test Suite report showing all Test Runs organized by Test Suite.

  • Improved Consistency of Dashboard Coverage Status help icon QMetry Release Notes
    PREVIOUS BEHAVIOR: When a Requirement is linked with a Test Case, but the Test Case is not linked with a Test Suite or Platform, then the "Requirement by Coverage" Dashboard shows Requirement as "Uncovered". This was wrong since the Requirement is covered but not executed. NEW BEHAVIOR: If a Requirement is linked with a Test Case, but is not linked with a Test Suite or Platform, then it will show the Requirement as "Covered - Not Run" while the Requirements which are not linked to any Test Case should be shown under "Uncovered".
