Defining Custom Attributes for Test Cases and Test Steps

  • RMsis provides a table, which can be used for managing custom fields for Test Cases.
  • These custom fields will be applied globally to all projects.
  • The attributes can be configured for display in the Test Case Data Table and are also included in the PDF reports generated for Test Cases.

Custom Field Attributes

A custom field has the following attributes:

  • Custom Field Name
    • This field specifies name of the custom field.
  • Field Type

    • This field specifies the field type of the custom field.

    • Just click on "Field Type" column against a custom field row to select its field type.

    • Possible values for this field are

      • Text

      • Integer

      • Real value

      • Date
      • Single select list

      • Multi select list

      • Rich Text Area
      • Hierarchical View
      • JIRA Data
  • Field Unit

    • This attribute specifies the unit of the custom field.

    • It is only applicable for "Text", "Integer" and "Real value" type custom fields.

  • Field Options
    • This attribute specifies the field options for the custom field.
    • It is only applicable for "Single select list", "Multi select list" and "Hierarchical View".
    • The options can be entered by clicking on respective cell.
    • By default, a blank option is added to the list.
  • Editable
    • Editable flag when set, implies that this custom field can be modified, even after the Test Case has been committed.

Custom Field Operations

The following operations can be performed on this table:
  • Add Custom Field
    • A new custom field can be created by clicking on the first row of the table under the "Custom Field Name" column labeled "< Enter new Custom Field >".
  • Edit Custom Field

    • A custom field can be edited simply by clicking on it.
    • Note: Once a custom field is associated with a Test Case,
      • then its field type cannot be altered
      • and associated field options cannot be deleted
  • Delete Custom Field(s)
    • Custom Field(s) can be deleted in the following two ways:
      • First select custom field(s) and then click on "Delete Custom Field" button to delete them.
      • By selecting context menu item "Delete Custom Field" to delete a single custom field.
    • However, if a custom field is associated with a Test Case, then the system will prompt a message and confirm deletion from the user.
  • Reorder 
    • This functionality can be used to reorder field options for a custom field.

    • It is only applicable for custom fields of type "Single select list" and "Multi select list".

    • In order to reorder field options for a custom field,
      • Click on the cell corresponding to the "Reorder" column for the custom field whose field options need to be reordered.
      • A panel "Reorder Options" will open up using which field options can be reordered (drag and drop to move/reorder field options).
      • Click on Save button after reordering the field options.
  • Enable
    • A custom field can be enabled by clicking on the check box on the extreme right.
    • Once a custom field is enabled, it appears as part of Test Cases.
    • If checked then any new projects created in JIRA will be having these fields enabled by default. Project manager has to explicitly disable those fields in their projects.

Deleting a Custom Field Option

A custom field option can be deleted by clicking on the Field Option and subsequently on the Delete Icon shown against the option. In case the option is already associated with an entity, the following dialogue box appears, which enables the user to specify an alternative option for all the linked entities.


Context Menu is accessible by right clicking on any table row. Operations defined in context menu will be performed on that row.

Status Computation Rules

RMsis provides an option to automatically compute the status of a Test Case, based on the statuses of it's Test Steps.

The rules can be specified as a set in the following format

  • IF
    • STATUS OF Any TS | All TS
    • EQUALS Pass | Fail | Pass with Exception | Blocked | ???
  • THEN
    • SET STATUS of TC to
      • Pass | Fail | Pass with Exception | Blocked | ???
  • Note : The system currently does not check for ambiguous set of rules.

Auto Compute Test Case State

When this option is enabled, the status of test cases within a test run will be automatically computed based on their test steps status when the test step window is closed.

Search within Test Steps 

  • The search in Test Case view in RMsis now includes test steps also.

  • By default, the search works only for test cases in the Test Cases view.

  • In order to enable the search in Test Cases view to include Test Steps also,

    • Switch to RMsis Administration > Configuration > Application

    • Scroll down and enable the "Enable Test Steps search for Test Cases" checkbox available under the heading "Search within Test Steps"
