Finishing Testing Cycles

Note: Before finishing a testing cycle, verify that the end date of the testing cycle corresponds with the current date. If not, ensure that you are able to finish the testing cycle on a different date.

To finish a testing cycle:

  1. In the menu, click Execution Planning > Manual Execution Planning. The Manual Execution Planning page displays.
  2. In the Testing Cycles area, in the header of a testing cycle, click ... > Finish Testing Cycle.

    If the testing cycle is not yet started, this action is disabled. A testing cycle that is not running displays Not Yet Started between the start and end date. A running testing cycle displays Testing Progress. A finished testing cycle displays Finished.

  3. The Finish Testing Cycle dialog box appears. Select the action you want to perform for tests that have not been executed and click Finish. The selected status change will only be applied to non-executed tests for which no status reason has been set.
Note: Finished testing cycles are locked. You cannot add/remove tests or testers to/from a finished testing cycle. You can copy a test from a finished testing cycle by dragging it onto another testing cycle or tester.
