Quick Execute

Applies to Zephyr Squad Server 6.2 and 4.8, last modified on December 30, 2021

A newly introduced feature to improve efficiency for power testers is Quick Execute. This allows users to now change the status of a test directly in the Test Cycle list or from where they are viewing an issue. Now it is easier than ever to blast through a whole bunch of tests without having to individually open each one of them just to change their execution status, plus you save on a large number of clicks.

Quick Execute is available from 3 locations.

From the test cycle list

Mouse-over the status for the drop-down icon (or click on status itself):

Test execution status dropdown menu

This then provides a drop-down menu of status and you can change the status of the test right there. Click somewhere else and your status selection is saved.

If you want to provide detailed test execution information, click on the E button and execute.

From the View Issue page for a given test

While viewing a test, navigate to the Test Executions section and when you mouse-over (or click on) a test status, you get a drop-down menu of all the test statuses. Selecting one and clicking away will immediately change the status of that test execution.

If you want to provide detailed test execution information, click on the E button and execute.

When viewing a set of results in the Execution Navigator (accessed from the Search Test Executions in the top Tests menu dropdown), individual tests can be quick executed.

If you want to provide detailed test execution information, click on the scheduleId in the list and execute.
