I have multiple tester based around the UK, testing at different times. I have set x-ray tests and created multiple test executions per test. My thought being that each tester would be able to complete a test execution in the hope that only once all the test executions have been set to "Pass" would the x-ray test then change to pass
From my point of view:
The testcase itself is "just" a description of "which steps needs to be done" to test a special feature/functionality.
The test execution is then an abstraction of the testcase for a special setting (eg. version --> I execute the steps from a testcase with application in version 1). The testcase then reports the "current" status.
So if the test execution with version 1 passes the testcase would say "green - passed". After deploying version 2 of the application, creating and executing a new test execution for version 2 that fails the test case will say "red - failed" because the current state is that this feature is (obviously) not working with the current version (2) proved by the test execution.
