If a test is being executed outside of a test cycle, then it is termed to be executed in an ad-hoc fashion. By default, every version (or if one doesn't exist, "Unscheduled") will have an ad-hoc cycle. All tests executed in an ad-hoc fashion will have the results summary reported in the test cycle.
|The Execution Status of the overall test is NOT automatically modified based on the status of the individual test steps. You will still have to set the Execution Status of overall test manually.|
