Summary0001329: Create/Assign to User Groups
DescriptionAs well as assigning test cases to individual users, add the ability to create and assign to tester groups. Fr example, assign a test to a team and confirm that the test case works for all the testers in the team/group. Reports would then enable you to see the percentage of successful tests and narrow down where the problem might be.
Additional InformationMozilla's Litmus is a good example of a test case management tool designed for multiple users reporting on individual cases. However, I prefer testlink ;-)

Agree! Not so often, but sometimes could be useful feature.

Guys, how you expect that it should work?

I expect the next:
1. Admin can create a User Group available through all TL and define owner.
2. Admin or owner could add and remove users to a group.
3. User can be member no, one or more groups.

On which pages could be posible to use group to filter users?

I'm not sure, if it is good idea to assign to group of people, because there is missing personal responsibility. But I can imagine that you can filter according a group and reassign test to yourself.

Of course always should be personal responsibility. So in case of group of testers one person anyway will be leader - responsible tester for this case. From other side not so often, but sometimes really it is necessary that one test case is performed by group of testers.

In principle TestLink allows to perform test by more as one user. From that side it works already. So for my opinion what would be good to have it is again some reporting features. And other side is that tester should see that he has testcase assigned for execution.

Please consider two options:

System Wide Groups
TestProject related groups

using same concept already in use for roles, i.e:
we have :
system wide (assigned when user is created, i.e default role)
testproject roles
testplan roles

There would still be responsibility. Each tester would still have a test case assigned to them, but at the moment it can only be a maximum of one person per case. The system rules would state that at least one person has responsibility, but it could be many in a group. It would be up to a senior tester/admin to decide whether to close the case if he is happy that enough of the group carried out the testcase.

Fine with group setup in Admin backend, but each tester when logging in should be able to see cases assigned to them, either if specified individually or if they are part of a group. My personal preference is these two types of assignment should not be separated too much - as far as a tester is concerned, he just needs to log in and carry out a series of cases. Groups for me is more of an admin reporting type thing (ie we had 4 out of 10 testers fail testcase 1, further investigation needed)
