Summary0006324: Execution via API should (optionally?) set test execution to user
DescriptionCurrently, (did not test with [^] yet!), when we execute via the API, everything works well - but as the test is not assigned to any user, it is not fully reported in all reports. We have to go and assign it post-execution, manually, via the GUI, to a user, so that it'll appear in all the statistics.
I believe this was requested in [^] - but perhaps was not fully understood.
As far as I could understand, 6185 allows to define a specific user, not the API caller, as the executing tester. This does not solve the above problem - the test will still not be reported in all reports, if it was not previously assigned to that user (or later on, fixed by assigning to that user).
Steps To Reproduce1. Execute a test case via the API, using a specific key.

IMHO this approach for a request is not polite.
With whate elements you said this?
If you have fully understood it, please explain it again with full details

Next time please just do a feature request without any other kind of misleading and wrong considerations.

Feel free to implement your self and contribute code to community

Explaining again:
Today you can, using the API, create a build, then execute a test, with a specific user, on that build. This is great, but since that test case was NOT assigned to that user (on that build or any other build), it will not be accounted for on some of the statistics (for example, it'll show in the charts, but not on the general test plan metrics. There is no way, from the API, to assign a test case to a user - before or after executing it.

Our current workaround is manually go to through every build, look for tests that either passed or failed there and that are not assigned, and mass-assign them to our 'automation' user.

As for 'feel free to implement' comment - I don't know PHP. Had it been other language, I might have been able to. All I can offer here are feature requests, bug reports and a bit of testing.

I'm still waiting for the explanation regarding note 20951, but I'm sure I'm not going to get it.
I would like to be clear that do not like the kind of approach you have used when reporting the issue, that I will continue to consider unpolite.

I'm going to reject this feature request because i do not think is the right way to go.
API has to allow (when possible) same actions that can be done via GUI.
Via GUI you can not execute and assign at same time, I do not think is a good feature.

If some feature request can be done IMHO, is to have the assign test case execution method.
