Test annotations not showing on kanban cards when linked from requirementd based suite in test hub RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Previously when creating a requirements based suite within a test plan in the test hub would create the links back to the requirement object in the work area and the test case annotation would display on the kanban board for the requirement card.

    This no longer appears to show the test annotation on the board even though they are enabled and the respective links are also present between the objects.

    When adding a test case directly to the requirement on requirement board the annotations are visible using this route.

    Has anyone else encountered this recently?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Thank you for the pointer, we had already reviewed the link you provided and confirmed our Kanban board settings.

    We can add inline tests directly to the cards on the Kanban board and see the test annotation as described in the original query however when we are working via the test hub and the testers are creating a requirement based suite within a test plan for a sprint and creating the test cases directly against the test suite these are no longer visible on the cards on the kanban board where by  these previously did display using these steps.

    Thanks

  • I am experiencing this too:

    1. From Board view, create new test in a user story

    result -> test is added as annotation as well as all other tests that have a test/tested by link with that story, requirements-based suite is created with all test/tested by linked tests

    2. From Test Plan view, add a requirements-based suite for a user story

    result -> suite is created showing all tests that are test/tested by linked to the story, but the tests annotations does not show up on the Board view

    3. From Test Plan view, add a requirements-based suite for a user story, then from Board view, create new test for same user story

    result -> first, the suite is created but annotations do not show up on the Board view.  After added the test in the board view, the annotations show up and the new test is added on both the story card on the Board, and in the requirements-based suite in the Test Plan view.

    The same problem.

    Is there any solution?

  • This is known limitation with the product that is documented here:

    Why doesn't the Kanban board show the status for test suites and plans already created in the Test hub?

    Test status in the Kanban board

    Test integration with the Kanban board makes it easy for teams to get started with manual testing and then take advantage of the full testing capabilities in Test Manager later, when required. When test cases are created from the Kanban board and updated afterwards in Test Manager, the Kanban board shows the correct status. However, integration is not optimized to work in the other direction; for example, when users create requirement-based suites with Test Manager instead of in the Kanban board. We intend to make some major performance improvements to this integration in future releases.
