  • Select List (multiple choices): field that stores multiple values in a select list view and the user is able to select one or multiple choices from the list.
  • Select List (single choices): field that stores multiple values in a select list view and the user is able to select one choice from the list. This is a drop-drop list.
  • Text Field (multi-line): field that allows inputs for longer text strings in a multi-line text box.
  • Text Field (single line): field that allows simple text input in a single line text box.

“Fields” custom field

  • After selecting the custom field type, users must provide a name for the custom field.
  • The name for the custom field is essentially the column header for the custom field.
  • The name of the custom field can also be search in test execution search using ZQL.
  • The keyword when searching for a defined custom field is ZCF.

Example

If you have a custom checkbox with the header called Custom Status and one of the options is Finished? and you want to search for test executions that are Finished?, use the following:

Custom Status = "Finished?"

When viewing custom fields for test executions and test steps. Use the Column button to display the custom field in the corresponding tables.
