Changing the testcase means changing the previous testexecutions?

We have the situation that we have a running testexection. After this testexecution we changed the testcase (e.g. testdata). This Change also changed the existing testexecution. That means that the testexection is not maintained and does not reflect the situation while running this test. How can this be avoid?

Hi Petra 

As per the testing methodology or process a test case data once written and added to the test case cycle,once executed maintains its relation to the test data present at the time of execution.Changing the test data means it doesn't maintain the relation with previous execution as the test steps related to previous executions have changed.Therefore editing a test case doesn't preserve the old execution details.This is by design.If you have to change the test case we suggest you to clone the test case and add to a new test phase cycle.

Hi Arun,

this sounds not good sad. That means that the results of the testexections can be manipulated after running and there is no possibility to maintain the Situation for this execution.  For our planned environment it is not realy feasible that the testcase should be cloned for each change as this is a manuel process.

Do you plan any change on this issue?
