Summary0008497: Execution notes and status are lost after importing test suites.
DescriptionExecution notes and status in execution history are lost by importing test suites.

Can I salvage losted execution notes and status?
Steps To ReproduceThere are some history of execution that is including execution notes and status.

I did "Test Suite Operations"-"All Test Suites" with default settings.

And I edited a test case which is not tested yet.
(I found mistake in the test case before testing.)

And I imported by "Test Suite Operations"-"Import" with following settings.
 File type: XML (default)
 File: (selected a XML file)
 Consider Test Case as duplicate if: has same name (default)
 Action for duplicates: Update data on Last version

After that, execution notes and status in execution history were lost! Boo!
TagsNo tags attached.

Sorry, database in issue is wrong. Correctly it is MySQL 5.5.59-0+deb8u1.

It seems that inconsistency between tcsteps table and execution_tcsteps table occurs when importing test cases.

When importing a test case and updating the step it seems that new steps will be added after the step has been deleted from the tcsteps table, regardless of whether the contents of the step have changed.

For this reason, it seems that the link between the step and the execution result (tcstep_id in the execution_tcsteps table) has expired and it is no longer displayed.

Please get latest code from github,do fresh install, retest & provide feedback.
Anyway import will not compare contents, and will update using delete + insert.
Need to understand if will be better to update content and if this is possible with a moderate effort.

You are free to implement a solution, and create a Pull Request.
