4.Editing Inherited Custom Fields

All Custom Fields you create in the Test Suite will be automatically added in the Test Run's Field Settings as Inherited Fields. So the total number of Custom Fields in Test Run must include Inherited Custom Fields from Test Suite and Custom Fields of Test Run itself.

    • You can only reorder Inherited Custom Fields' display in Test Run's Field Settings using Move Up and Down arrows.
    • You cannot edit Inherited Custom Fields in Test Runs. But you have to edit the Source Fields in Test Suite's Field Settings. Then they will be automatically updated in Test Run's Fields
    • To remove Inherited Custom Fields of Test Runs, you have to delete the Source Fields in Test Suite.
    • Currently, there is no option to hide Inherited Custom Fields from Test Suite in Test Run
