Summary0008100: Need ability to control testing under multiple different platforms
DescriptionI run the testing for a complex product which is a host - client scenario. I have severe need of support a test tracking system which tracks multiple different platforms. Previous person in my position was using testlink, it seems like a good idea to stick with his previous choice but it has proven problematic.
The server is supported on multiple Operating systems (Let's say 6 different types for now), the client is supported on 6 different operating systems. This specialized server has special hardware which completely changes the possible outcome of the test(Let's say 3 different types of hardware).

This means, of the 80 actual test cases I have. I either have to make 108 different platforms to describe the exact nature of what is being executed, or I need to make test cases in duplicate. Making the test cases in duplicate is what the last employee did which resulted in 8640 test cases with only about 80 unique.

This is so infuriating as a tester because it is soooooo disorganized.. It also makes soo much sense as to why the last guy was let go.

What needs to happen is that each test plan should have a list of added platform types associated to it. Each platform type should have a list of plaforms that the test plan will associate with. I realize that many people don't have such complex products that might only require a single platform, but for those of us who do have such complicated projects.. this is a god send.

PS. We are currently adding a GUI to our product which will mean that each of those 80 test cases would have been copied again making a total of 34,560 test cases based on 432 different permutations of different platforms or combonations of plaforms.
Steps To ReproduceFeature request.
Just make a project that needs more than one type of platform.
