0001208: Updating Testcase within a Testplan without dropping the results gained so far
When a testcases is changed/updated/corrected, i want to be able to test this newest version in the testplan without losing the results of the tests which have been run already. Currently, if i understand it right, to bring a new version of a testcase into the testplan the testcase is already linked to, it means to cancel any test execution done so far.

Testplan 1
... Testcase 1.0
... Testcase 2.0

I run the tests with Result X

Now testcase 1.0 gets updated to 1.1

Here i want to be able to - from now on - test

Testplan 1
... Testcase 1.1
... Testcase 2.0

but without dropping the executed test! I would not want to be forced to create an exact clone of a testplan only because a testcase was updated or changed... after all it is still the very same testplan i want to execute. Like it was in 1.6.2, if i am not mistaken. ;)

Not possible without big re-write

There is no missing update in tesplan.
TL 1.7.1 is very different to 1.6.2 in the testcase link to testplan feature.

Please never submit two issues in one.

Francisco, what you think? I know that it is difficult to implement. But it is request of logical and natural behavior.
I think that we could accept it for some later release

@fman: isnt this issue resolved with versioning of the test cases available in the current system?

2009-05-12 19:45   
this must be fixed.
Please test with user example on 1.8.2

>>> isnt this issue resolved with versioning of the test cases available in the >> current system?

the requested feature is working in 1.8 version. I tested it (include reports).

I find out a problem that execution history shows the current version only. It could be fixed under this issue. It could be closed after it.

1. I think I've developed it
2. would you mind give detailed steps to reproduce new issue (than IMHO must be coded as a NEW one)
