Hi @Jan , as a general practice, irrespective of the tool in use, if you are retesting and are spending efforts doing that you should create a new run (execution).

Advantages :

1. captures the history of executions

2. you can capture effort coz essentially you have spent time doing that

3. artifacts can be separated neatly aligned to failed and passed executions

Hi @Jan-Hendrik Rolf , welcome to the community.

There is insufficient context here for me to be able to offer some guidance. What exactly do you mean by test execution and are you using some ad on application to manage your test efforts?

Hi, 

first of all - thank you!

The context is about bug/defect handling and we are using xray in jira for test managment. In my case I created a test set, test plan, ... In this case I created a test execution. So the question are when do I have to use existing test exectutions and when do I have to cretae new test executions?

I hope you get what I mean.

Maybe some additional information:

The tester tested and identified a bug while test execution and reported it.

After that the development team fixed the bug.

For this case: Should i change the status in the existing test execution or should i better create a new one?

So in generel: When I have to use a existing test execution and when do i have to use a new execution

Hi @Jan-Hendrik Rolf , I have never used Xray app. I would recommend reaching out to their support. They may stop by here and comment. I will also flag colleagues to see if they have input to stop by too.
