Silk Central Feature Requests

  1. Test run status change

    SI #2653107

    Could we make a request to remove the option of providing a comment when a test run status has been changed. Or please make this optional.

    My Argument
    I agree that it is helpful to put in a comment. But If the comment is just that the script now passed, thats a useless comment. (I already know that) So I shouldn't be forced to to put in a comment when all we are typing in, is "it passed" or "it worked" which we already know. It should be optional, then if people want to do the "best practice"…

  2. Use LDAP as user directory back-end - not just for authentication

    Currently, SCTM is capable of using LDAP for authenticating users. However, one is still required to add the user(s) that should be able to log in to SCTM manually to SCTM.
    This is simply not a viable solution when dealing with more than, say, 20 users, or when you have new users requesting access frequently - the administration burden becomes too high.
    Also, it is not enterprise class.

    Instead, SCTM should allow one to set up LDAP connectivity so that one can allow all users that match a specific search criteria to be added as users to SCTM. Access rights…

  3. Possibility to import new tests when performing an update tests

    We would like to be able to insert additional tests under an existing hierarchy of tests. For this, we would need to be able to insert the additional tests via the "update tests" functionality, otherwise we would need to import the new tests, and then cut and paste them to re-position them under needed node. This would be painful when updating a huge hierarchy of tests. This would apply also for the requirements.

  4. 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

  6. Start time does not show execution begin

    In the activity view the start time is the time the run was added to SCTM . I'm missing the time the silkperformer controller starts execution of the testrun.

  8. Récupérer automatiquement Produit + Version + Build en RUN lors de la création d'un incident

    Lors de l'exécution manuelle d'un test, je souhaite déclarer un incident donc je le créé pendant le RUN.
    Serait-il possible de récupérer automatiquement le Produit + Version + Build sur les quels se déroule le test.

  9. Could the the SilkCentral import feature be enhanced?

    At the moment the mapping file can only map one spreadsheet cell into a corresponding field in SilkCentral.
    It would be a nice feature to have the possibility to concatenate the contents of multiple Excel cells into one (via the use of Logical AND e.g. &&) at time of extraction before storing the result in the corresponding SilkCentral field.

  10. SCTM: Assign user to execute test definition.

    SCTM: Assign user to execute test definition. After we have assigned tester 1 to test definition 1, then the test definition 1 should block to other tester.

  11. Allow to import execution plans directly to users in Manual Planning test Cycle

    In configuration suite we can create plans and assign people to them directly.
    So will be good to import execution plan to Test Cycle directly to selected user, not to "unassigned" list. Without drag-n-drop, etc.

  12. Remove the limit of 32767 rows in an export to MS Excel

    Exports from SilkCentral to Excel are currently limited to 32767 rows due to limitations in the Java library. This limit should be removed to accommodate typical volumes of data in the Issue_History table. Currently a typical issue has about 10 history records and we have recorded over 700 issues. Activity will increase during 2013, and we may reach 3,000+ issues during 2014.

  14. Ability to use data driven properties for a Test Package

    Suggested through case 2579730

    Ability to use data driven properties for a Test Package.

    This feature would be extremely useful as it would provide less overhead for executing many tests with various data.

    Tests that fail would not prevent the remaining tests from continuing to execute.

  15. Render the 'Timeline' information as Hyperlinks

    When using the output.xml file to input values in the 'Timeline' tab, we need to have the ability to render URLs as hyperlinks, either through XML tags or automatically.

    This is a continued issue from Incident #2667867

  16. Export/import SCIM project with option to link to SCTM project (test-defect associations)

    Export / Import SCIM project with option to work linked to SCTM project export/import capability.
    In some case we have the need to 'move' a SCTM project form a DB to another including the defect linked into SCIM project. To do that we need to have the import / export capability also for the SCIM Issue Manager project, working linked to SCTM project (test - defect associations).
    thanks

  18. Embed screenshots to allow them to be minimised/maximised on Manual Test Results

    The feature to allow embedded screenshots on the Manual Test Results page has been implemented for SCTM 16.0, it would be useful to have a feature to allow these screenshots to be minimised/maximised, possibly through a check box to either display the image on the results page or not.

  19. Embed screenshots on Manual Test Results page with image types other than .png

    The feature to allow embedded screenshots on the Manual Test Results page has been implemented for SCTM 16.0, the workaround only allows for .png images. it would be useful to have a feature to allow this to support other image types also such as .jpg and .bmp.

  20. Update numbers for tests returned in filter - document view

    A filter is used in the test specification document view so the display is not adjusted/tailored for Status values and assigned test specifications.

    We need a standardisation of the display in the requirements and execution areas.
