I'm currently evaluating Zephyr and have hit a 'show-stopper' issue around vieiwing the assignee of a test in the Test Cycle Summary page and within the reporting gadgets.
I refer to the links above - Can you indicate whether this will ever be addressed? I can't find anything since these posts to suggest that this key requirement will be delivered.
We are creating test cycles and then assigning tests to individuals to run them. The ability to see which tester has outstanding executions (and therefore may potentially need help) is fundamental. At the moment I'm having to go into each test to see who it's assigned to. Likewise with the Zephyr Test Distribution Chart Gadget - this is only by the user that reported (or created) the test - this would be far more useful if it was by assignee. As things stand we will not be buying Zephyr, so if anyone can recommend a Jira test management plug ins that does allow you to assign the tests out I'd be grateful to hear from you.
Thanks for the clarification Emily. One way I can try and work around this is by using the executor - this is assigned once the test starts execution and the status goes to WIP.
I can then at least see who is actively working on a test, and run a filter in native Jira to see who is assigned the tests. We may be able to do something with a custom report to compare the two to see who has the outstanding tests to action. It's a bit messy though....
But in the long run it would make sense for you to include the funtionality. I can't think of any good argument why your Product Management Team would omit this ;-)
Please add the ability to filter by assignee. When a large number of Testers are working from the same Test Cycle, it is impossible to tell how many tests each person has left in a given test cycle. It seems like it would be an easy fix. A simple join on the two tables so that the one data element can be displayed.
