  • Disable (all test runs) – The dialog will not appear after failed test runs for the current user.

    Tip: To turn this option on or off, go to  > Setup > System Configuration > System Options.

The Create Defect form

In the Create Defect form, you can edit the details of the defect and add the necessary information for your team. The value of the Steps to Reproduce field contains the following information about each step:

  • The number of the step.
  • The status of the step.
  • The description of the step.
  • The values of the Expected Result and Actual Result fields.
Note: For more information about the Create Defect form, see Add and Edit Defects.

Click Save after you specify all the necessary information. The new defect will be automatically linked to the test, test set, configuration, and release.
