Silk Central Feature Requests

  1. Introduce a JIRA plugin that shows relevant information from SCTM

    Much like the Atlassian Greenhopper integration fetches relevant information about requirements from JIRA and presents them in SCTM, it would be really useful to have a JIRA plugin that does the same thing but the other way around.
    For an epic, story, or a defect, the plugin should present information about relevant tests for this epic/story/issue.

    The use case would be to allow for users of the issue tracker to view test related information in the context of the issue.

    Information to be shown would be all relevant information about a test case/execution plan, test results, status etc.

  2. Select List (cascading) field from JIRA not supported

    Support Incident: 2879672.

    We want to link Silk Central with Jira Server. In our Jira projects we have custom fields, which are selecting list (e.g. to select an OS, first you select Windows then you get all the existing Windows environment). When we want to create a new issue from Silk to Jira, when we have to use the cascading fields, Silk always gives an error. We are then unable to create the issue as these fields are also mandatory fields.

  3. Sort items alphabetically

    Sorting items (esp. testcases and their folders) is painful in SCTM. Even if I can drag and drop items in SCTM 17, I often wish items would automatically be sorted alphabetically.
    This could be solved by a click on a button or by a setting of the parent folder (e.g. "always sort items below alphabetically")

  4. Manual Test Results should embed images on PDF export

    I need the ability to generate test result docs that include the screen shots. I know it generates reports now, but the screen shots are not included (only a link).

    When you choose to view manual test results, it displays the results and provides options to print the results or download as a PDF. The images don’t display, only clicking the hyperlink to them does.

    When downloading as a PDF, the images should also display.

  5. Ordering Automated Tests and Execution Plans

    Currently there is the functionality to order Manual Tests, if we have an Execution Plan which has tests contained within it which other tests are dependant on, we need to make sure order is correct.

    Ordering within an Execution Plan would enable us to do this.

    It would be nice also to have the option to have execution plans run in a sequential manner, on dependencies so we can make sure each execution plan is in the correct order as well, rather than what one reaches the execution server first.

  6. Add custom fields for issue statuses in Silk to map to JIRA

    Currently SilkCentral does not allow to add custom fields for issue statuses in Silk to map to JIRA. It has the basic 5 statuses (Open, Fixed, Verified, Closed, Deffered). It would be very helpful if SilkCentral allows to add such as “In Progress”, “Ready for deployment”, “Failed” etc.

  7. Allow greater control of system email notifications

    Currently if there is an issue with an execution server, all users who have been assigned the SuperUser role with receive a notification.

    It would be better if you had the option to only notify the System Administrator(s), Having tick boxes in place would allow you to decide who should receive the notifications.

  8. Export tests to Excel - Option to decide whether or not the HTML tags should be exported

    When tests are exported to Excel, the formatting data are also exported for future import. As is, the exported data are difficult to read and to manage within Excel. It is requested to be able to decide whether or not the formatting data (HTML tags) should be exported with the test data.

  10. Possibility of recovering a deleted test case/container

    Is there any way to recover a deleted test case/container? The only option seems to be recovering with database backup!
    The recovery feature is available in requirements section and it would be really useful to have it in other sections of SCTM as well.
    If recovery is not possible, can there be a recycle bin activated in Test section so the deleted test would be temporary moved there before a hard deletion takes place?

    We have a item on our backlog which relates to deleted tests first moving to a ‘Obselete’ folder on first delete. This allows them to be reviewed prior to final delete. This is in line with how we handle requirement deletion.

    We will add your feedback to out item on backlog.

  11. Manage test result history indipendently from EP/ Test Cycle - #2583869

    The deletion of an Execution Plan / Manual Test Cycle will produce the deletion of all the the test history result.
    This condition is not acceptable, the test history is an asset of the test factory organization while the execution plan / test cycle is how you organize the work daily with your testers.
    This condition is improved also by other conditions:
    1. the number of test cycles will grow very quickly, due the fact that you have to recreate (correctly) new test Cyle for each new run (if you use the standard EP you can rerun the same EP). …

    Within Silk central 13 onward you have the ability to delete result files from execution plans this can be done on a date range ect and can be left to leave the last result file. This can be done on a project level or individual execution plan level.

    Silk Central 12.1 introduces capability to select which test cycles within the Manual Execution Plan are displayed. A new button enables selection for configuration. This enables flexibility for display and reduces volume of data.

  12. Manual Testing Applet - filter capabilities

    Allow tester to use filter in manual testing applet (continue manual test), to improve usability
    thanks

  13. Add NOT EXECUTED events to Test book (table TM_ActivityLogs)

    Test book (table TM_ActivityLogs) doesn't track NOT EXECUTED status and related status reason, useb by us to manage the NOT EXECUTABLE conditions, so the log is not true.
    Please consider to manage the NOT EXECUTABLE condition as a primary status (lile passed or failed) and/or ADD NOT EXECUTED info to test book.
    thanks

  14. Better management of column in the grid views - deselect all and save the current selecting

    Users spend a lot of time (we have 50 test attributes) to remove the not interested column, losing that selection at next login, frustrating.
    Please consider to add a flag to deselect all (like Excel filter) and a better way to save the column selection
    thanks

  16. Add datatime when finish execution to Datamart DM_TestStatus as in test book

    Datamart DMTestStatus doesn't have data time of execution (time of message 'status saved of manual test result set, get as dbchangedat in the testdefexecution and/or TMManualTestResults.
    The datatime shown are unuseful.
    For our reporting and metrics we need this information, so we cannot use the damart, we have generate a custom procedure to do the same dm task but this this info added.
    please consider this in next sc version
    thanks

  17. Connect Silk Central with Oracle DB, using the SERVICE_NAME, instead of SID

    It would be good to have the posibility to connect Silk Central with Oracle Data Base using the Service_Name instead of SID, since we have our DB in Oracle RAC (2 instances) and using SID we can connect just at one node. If something happen with this node, we don´t have a backup and contingency

  20. Import test results from Excel file

    We would like to import old test results that have been created without SCTM in order to create reports with historical statistics inside of SCTM.

    During the import of the old test results SCTM should:
    * create unknown test cases automatically.
    * create one new execution plan that is linked to all executed test cases
