Summary0007145: direct link to test execution results page
DescriptionFor linking external applications (mantis,wiki,...) to testlink I need a direct link to the
"test execution results" page. The current linkto.php doesn't provide it yet.

The target page I mean is: [^]

The linkto call can be something similar to this: [^]

In linkto.php there is already a "version" argument, but I didn't know how this is related to the version_id.
I'm not familiar with all those id's so I'm sorry when I misspelled or misunderstood some of those arguments.

The prequesit of this is, that the user have to be logged in to testlink (as for the other "linkto"-links)

Why I need this feature?
I'm already using exisiting direct links provided by linkto.php for different tasks and this helped a lot.
In opposite to that, for the execution result page I have to navigate manually.
This is a time consuming task and unneccessary, when you do it often.
A direct link would be more efficient and time saving.

>> This is a time consuming task and unneccessary, when you do it often.
this kind of sentences add no value to issue reporting, then is clearly explained on all material available in internet that has to be avoided.
Then please avoid.
Try to stick on describing clearly how feature has to work (this is the reported responsibility),
instead of providing ideas about implementation and guessing about parameters.
If you plan to code the solution you have to do it completely, half baked solutions do not help.

(thanks for your advice, I'm a developer and not a tester. Normaly I want to look behind the scene and provide help to make things better... so here is my next try for a better report)

direct link to the "Test Results on Build ..." page with all surrounding frames for use in external applications.

- logged in to testlink
- you have a link to specific executed testcase
(to avoid "multiple requests" in that post, i won't describe who generating the link could work)

what should happen:
enter the link in your browser and the "Test Results on Build ..." page open with all the surrounding frames, like this happen when this task is done manualy.

To make it clear which "manual task" I mean, here the steps to show the desired page:
- select desired "test project" from the combo in the upper left
- click "execute tests" from the "Test Execution" panel (now treeview appears)
- select desired item from the treeview
- now the "Test Results on Build" page appears in the right frame

-> this manual steps should be accomplished within a single hyperlink that is usable from outside testlink

only thing that has not been implemented is to open the left side tree on the right item, but IMHO is a minor inconvenience that can be fixed in future
