Silk Central Feature Requests

  1. 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.

  2. You should be able to select the number of items to be added to your dashboard

    At the moment when you ad a new item to your dashboard it will refresh your dashboard and when working with multiple items on the dashboard (20+) and you need to add 5 this is time consuming. I spent ~30-40 min to add 5 items on dashboard one by one. I would prefer to select the number of items I want to add and have one dashboard refresh instead of 5

  3. 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.

  4. LDAP Authentication and strong password policy

    Our objective is to connect Silk Central test manager platform on our corporate LDAP Directory which is based on the product ‘sun directory server directory 6.3’ (known nowadays as Oracle Directory Server 11g).
    The LDAP directory enhance the password policy which force password expiration every 90 days and blocks accounts after several failed attempts.

    SCTM v 13.0 doesn’t handle the error messages sent by the LDAP Directory when the password has expired or when the account is locked and therefore the user doesn’t get the reason why the authentication has failed ( “Vous avez entré un nom d'utilisateur ou un…

  5. Share a Manual Test between multiple projects with predefined information such as Attributes, steps, Properties

    As a Test Manager, I want to share a Manual Test between multiple projects with predefined information (Attributes, steps, Properties, data set, etc..) and search for them using filters. The shared tests should reside in a structure similar to Shared Steps.
    This functionality is not currently in Silk Central - this capability is a major sticking point for our customer.

  6. Update Issues Manager plug-ins

    Update all external Issues Manager plug-ins to contain all the same fields that are contained in the Issues Manager form. Specifically, update the TFS plug-in with all fields contained on the Issues Manager issues form. Then we can update our TFS bug form to contain the same fields and can synch them to Issues Manager. Otherwise, external issues must be managed in two places - negating any benefit from the external integration.

  7. 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.

  9. Allow users to create custom risk and priority values

    Remove default risk and priority requirement properties while the default lists of values of those ones don’t fit the customer needs. Creating custom risk and priority properties introduce confusion for users.

    About this issue, our customer would like to be able to define their own list of values (different values and different number of values than the standard lists) for the standard requirement properties Risk and Priority in SCTM 12.0.
    So they create custom requirement properties.
    However, doing so, they get 2 priority and risk properties on SCTM UI in the requirement workspace, the standard properties and the newly created…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Add a new Column type 'Project Name' in Cross-Project Activities, helps managers to see which execution are running for which projects.

    At the moment there is 'Project ID' as a column which can be displayed for Next/Current/Last Executions under 'Cross-Project Activities. But this doesn't mean anything for a Project manager / Test manager who manages multiple project. PM or TM have to go to the list of Project and then check what project it is that has executions running.
    If we can display the Project Name for Next / Current / Last Executions tables it will be very helpful for any business person to see what projects are running executions.

    Thanks,
    Micky Rathod.

  13. Allow custom mapping fields in SCTM - TFS issue tracking integration

    The need is to customize the mapping of the current hardcoded mapping between SCTM and TFS in the ISSUE integration profile, like the field description, severity.

  14. Add users directly to Projects rather than via Groups

    We would like to allow certain users access to only certain projects in Silk Central. I know we can create Groups and allow members of that group access to only certain projects but we were wondering if there is a way to do this without the use of groups?

    For example, it would be nice if there were a "Projects" drop-down list in the "Groups and Role Assignments" section of the User's Profile page. So that we could select specific projects for a specific user. The reason we would like to this is to avoid having to create dozens of…

  15. Show Silk Central Reports as a MS Word Document

    Request to add the capability to show reports in Silk Central as "Show as MS Word Document" inaddition to the current "Show as PDF Document". We have created many BIRT custom reports and have the need for the users to be able to download the custom reports as MS Word document via the web Silk Central interface. We don't want the general users to use BIRT viewer.

    Ongoing review of reporting capabilities is underway.

    Silk Central 13 introduced ability to have MS Word templates for generation of reports. This may be option which allows your users reports in required format. Some restrictions exist with MS Word on type of data which can be displayed which relates to charts and graphs – therefore consideration needs to be given as to data required.

  16. Create versions for all tests from test container

    Logged on Behalf of Johanna Bassil, when we want to version the test cases, we have to go through all the test cases and hit Create Version. It would be easier if we have this option on test folder or test container level to version all the test cases if need be.

  17. Floating license change

    SI #2649670

    Dear Colleagues, we have the following problem:

    If the floating user cannot log in due to unavailable license, then the following error message pops up:
    "License check failed. Please contact your system administrator."

    This message is misunderstanding and not user friendly at all.
    The floating user at least needs to be informed about who is using actually the license! Please, change the floating user handling accordingly. Actually many user wants to refuse using SilkCentral because of this missing functionality.
    The Floating users may cannot log out correctly by closing simply the web browser page of the SilkCentral. This…

  18. Need the ability to run Geb and Spock tests in addition to JUnit tests

    Geb and Spock are rapidly growing in popularity for automated testing. We just confirmed with SCTM customer support that it is currently not possible to kick off a Geb or Spock test from SCTM and record the results. We also don't see any way to wrap these types of tests in JUnit. Please add functionality to make it possible to execute Geb and Spock tests using SCTM.

  19. Manual tests which have been assigned to a specific tester will be deleted from a test cycle if that tester is removed from the test cycle

    When using the Manual Execution Planning component of SCTM 12.1, any manual tests which have been assigned to a specific tester will be deleted from a test cycle if that tester is removed from the test cycle. Logically, it seems, that tests assigned to a specific tester, who is subsequently removed from a test cycle, should remain in the test cycle and be assigned to the ‘No specific tester’ group.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Currently it is working as designed. The concern with this as designed feature is that after removing a tester from the test cycle, you then need to go and…

    Please can you provide further information. At this point the editting of tests at the point of execution cannot be performed within the manual test interface from Version 12 forwards. Editing of tests can still be performed within the full Silk Central then within the manual test interface the user can synchronise the test run to bring updates in to the test if required.

    Execution of tests many companies look to have a known point for execution and do not wish to allow users to modify scripts on the fly. Editing of tests within full silk central within the tests section of the tool – allows users with full permissions to make updates and choose which point these are synchronised throug.
