    what should i do with other test case when there is a showstopper

    Hi all,

    and question is

    what should i do with the other test cases (like 21 test cases) related to this one

    should i map that defect to all the test cases(21 test case) or inform the developer, thats it is a showstopper and take an update

    Hello,
    if you can't execute these test cases then you need to put them in status "Can't Run" and then mention the major test case is fail.

    Thanks,

    Hello Friend,

    Use 'NE' status (Not Executed) against the column which you couldn't run.

    In my view all depends upon your company procedure. Just check the above replies both have their view and sharing what they are following in their company.

    Since you logged a defect for the functionality ,keep rest of the testcases in no run status and also since its a show shopper and the developer should have to fix and when we get a hot fix or next build you need to reexecute these no run testcases under new build and also you need to link that no run testcases with the defect you logged for the functionality .

    Hi,
    I think it is good idea to map bug id(Show stopper) against the test cases however you can mark the status of the test cases as failed. And report defect for only one(Show stopper) and put the reference of all the other into that. In this way you can avoid logging duplicate bug and also covering all the required tracking matrix.

    In some of the cases client insist to report all the bug irrespective of the behavior for analysis at the later stages and closing the bug at the end. So it depends on you which approach you are opting for.

    Hope this may help you

    Regards
