As a Test Engineer, I want to load and export previous versions of a script

Ability to load and export previous versions of a script

I want to load and export a previous version of a script or scripts in bulk

So I can execute a previous version of a test(s) or export them

I recall this functionality being available previously, unless mistaken.

This would be useful as we may have different scripts against different builds and we may need to use a previous one. I don't understand the benefit of versioning otherwise.

    Ah I see. So this is only possible when editing the test cycle - from the "Test Case" tab.

    Thanks for the info - so one need is to export so that customers can use the previous version, and the other is to add a previous version to a test cycle for manual testing.

    For the second - this is where you'd select the test case version to add it to a cycle.

    Does that make sense?

    Hi Dee, this is for manual, sometimes a previous script may need to be exported and executed.

    We're trying to improve our processes so the script variations that need to be executed again are designed as separate scripts. However in some cases even if there's newer versions we need to export previous ones for some customers.

    Regarding execution, yes being able to execute a previous version is important. I just tried quickly and couldnt see a way for doing this. After creating a cycle I tried adding another test case which has 2 versions and and cant select the previous. Couldnt find anything in the documentation.

    Regards

    Hey Ishtiaq,

    Thanks for this feedback.

    On executing previous versions, are you aware that you can add a specific test case version to a test cycle/execute it alone?

    Is this for automated or manual?
