Add Comments


Introduction

Adding comments to a test asset is a useful way to record additional detail about a test asset, and collaborate with your QA team members. Comments are shown in the Comments tab on the details page when you view a test asset.

Comments are maintained at entity level and not at version level. For example, if a requirement version is archived; you can still edit the Comment. The entire requirement is archived, then you can not edit the Comment.

Comments tab is available to enter the entity related comments. You can -

  • Add Comments to Requirements
  • Add Comments to Test Cases
  • Add Comments to Test Suites
  • Add Comments to Issues
