As a test lead, I want to clone a test cycle with its history

We need the ability to move test cases from one cycle to another. Tests which are in progress, unexecuted, blocked would be selected and bulk moved to another test cycle without losing test execution data.

Currently, the only capability is to add to new test cycle and delete from old test cycle. The system deletes all historical data which existed in the previous test cycle. This is not appropriate. We need this historical information to pass an audit.

    Hi Denise/Dien,

    Thanks for this feedback - I've not seen it suggested before but it's a valid point if you don't want to continue executing your current cycle with tests that are passing.

    Unable to track past items on the same thing. This is a necessity in my book.

    Yes we need to preserve information to hand off or spin up. In my experience trying to understand the issue is more than 50% of the game. Anything that can help testers/users to quickly understand the issues is very valuable.

    Yes it would seem only natural to be able to do this. Plus you don't do all that work just to through any of it away. And historically, if something seems to be difficult to perform, old test cycles may help to remember or understand how to do it
