As a user, I want to delete the latest test executions

Copied from cloud ideas https://tm4j-cloud.ideas.aha.io/ideas/TM4JC-I-271

As a QA,

I want to delete the latest execution

So that I can remove executions created by mistake and ensure this doesn't impact reports

As a... Test Engineer
I would like... delete a test execution
So that I... So that the history doesn't contain incorrect executions and I can remove those that have been accidentally created

    There is a better approach if we are worried about deleting the current run.

    Zephyr scale can allow user to change the execution as Primary execution and then we can delete the execution which is not required.

    I want to this via rest API. I want to be able to delete test cases assigned to the test cycle.

    Working in Zephyr Scale 8.0.3/Jira 8.14.1, testers have been creating ad-hoc test executions (i.e. not in a test cycle), whereas as test manager I want all test executions to be part of test cycles (both for reporting purposes but also to have a clean administration).

    1) The is no way to enforce this in the GUI
    2) I cannot find a way to delete those test executions, the documentation only speaks about deleting executions from test cycles.
    3) Also the REST API does bot provide this option.

    Currently it's only possible to delete previous executions. From this feedback, I'm going to update this idea to "As a user, I want to delete the latest test execution", and I'll include the idea of removing ad-hoc executions too.

    Thanks all

    As Deita says, you can already do this so maybe people are just an on an older version of TM4J perhaps?

    We can not delete last execution record in test player. Also if we don't use cycles but ad hock testing from tracebility tab on jira issue view.

    it is only possible to delete old executions, not the latest one, which is usually created by incident

    Hi everyone. In TM4J, you can delete previous test executions in the test player.

    Could you let me know if there's additional functionality that you'd like to see for this?

    I need to update the title of this one to reflect functionality that doesn't yet exist.

    We would love to be able to delete any execution from the Execution tab of a test case
