Table of Contents


Release 1.16.12 August 6, 2018

Bug Fixes and Improvements

  • Ticket 17737: 3 new Rally fields are now available for selection within Explore Data/Defects (Linked) report. These include:
    • Rally Release
    • Rally Iteration
    • Rally Environment
  • Ticket 19169: The Explore Test Case query has been optimized to shorten load time. 
  • Ticket 19130, 19494, 18940: When a user was creating an Insights report for Test Cases the "Latest Results" field was always reported as "UNEXECUTED". This has been resolved so the latest result field populates with the result from the last test run execution.
  • Ticket 18597, 18034: When viewing an embed report in dashboards sometimes the wrong report was displaying.
  • Ticket 18722: Display the full name or projects, test cycles, modules, releases in global filter for selection.
  • Ticket 18718: Fix contrast on the background of data tables so the text is easier to view.
  • Ticket 16777: Selected values for Local Filters to charts of saved reports and saved dashboards will now stick.
  • Ticket 18594: Site fields for test run log currently show the latest value from test run which is incorrect. This issue has been fixed to pull test run log's value.
  • This release also pulls Test Suite Site fields (inherited by Test Run) to Explore Test Run Log.
  • Test Case Site Level fields are available again in the Explore Data/Test Run report. There was an issue where site level fields were released, rolled back, then re-released for Explore Data/Test Run reports. If a customer created a report during this time the charts were blank. This will allow customers to build charts with Test Case Site Fields. 

Release 1.16.11 July 4, 2018

Bug Fixes 

  • Ticket #17545: Chart "Latest Test Run Result" : Same test run status across projects of the site display multiple times in a chart. Fixed. Now each status display once.
  • Ticket #17621: Velocity Analysis Report (column Planned Test Run, Executed Test Run) did not show any test case when drill down. Fixed
  • Ticket #18290, #18317: Embed function in Saved Report/ Manage section broken. Fixed. User now can copy script from the Action/ Embed and embed to their website without issue.
  • Ticket #18388: Clicking on a requirement without test case association in Coverage table under Coverage Analysis report resulted in Access Denied error. Fixed. Now it will navigate user to the requirement detail page in qTest Manager.
  • Ticket #18496: Chart "Test Planned vs. Executed" : Changes in the "by" (Day, Week, Month) are allowed but not reflected in the chart. Refresh icon is not working. Fixed
  • Ticket #18549: Hard to see the total number in summary bottom row of crosstab created in Explore Data as its color matches with the background. Fixed. Modified the text color not to match the background.
  • Ticket #18607: Explore Test Runs > Explore/ Test Run: Column "Test Run" should point to test run name instead of test case name. Fixed
  • Ticket #18551, #18494: Existing Custom charts with site field display No data


NOTE: There was an error in 1.16.10 that caused custom charts with Site Fields to break. We temporarily removed this function which populates Test Case Site-Level custom fields into Explore Test Run to ensure that charts existing before 1.16.9 will work.

Please note, that as of the 1.16.12 release, existing custom charts using site fields which were created before 1.16.9 (Jun20) will continue to work, but charts with site field created in between  1.16.9(Jun20) to 1.16.11 (Jul4) may be broken. In such cases, when a customer reports an issue, we will manually fix the chart case by case. In the worst case scenario, where we cannot recover, we'll have to ask the customer to rebuild the chart.

Release 1.16.10 June 26, 2018

  • Ticket #18326: Could not close the release banner for trial customer. Fixed

  • Ticket #18091: Custom charts not loading on Insights dashboards. Fixed

  • Ticket #17431: Test Results by Day- Previously, the graph did not save a Custom Date Range or Last xx Days. Now, you can select any Custom Date Range and save the dashboard. The selected date range displays properly to the Saved Dashboard. This is fixed.

  • Ticket #17468, #17556, #17655: You can apply a Global Filter for Module/Release on Explore Data>Linked Defect reports. This has been fixed.

Release 1.16.8 June 6, 2018

New Feature

The following charts have been added to the Carousel Gallery on the Dashboard:

1. Test Run Status by Project: located in the 'Test Execution' category. This chart will leverage the test run status color which is defined in Manager.

2. Defects (Linked) Priority by Project: located in the 'Defects' category. Only available for Jira and Rally defect data. This chart leverages defect status color which is defined in Manager. Only users who are using the same standard defect status value with Manager can take advantage of the color setting.

3. Defects (Linked) Status by Requirement: located in the 'Defects' category. Available for all external defect data. This chart leverages defect status color which is defined in Manager. Only users who are using the same standard defect status value with Manager can take advantage of the color setting.

Note: These charts include an additional Test Cycle filter (at the chart level) which will display all of the parent Test Cycles for the projects/releases that are selected in the Global Filter. The Test Cycle filter selected in the Global Filter will not apply to these 3 charts because they include their own Test Cycle filter. If there are duplicate Test Cycle names in different projects/releases only one will show with aggregate data.

1.16.7 Release Notes-May 31, 2018

New Feature

Jira Requirement Fields

A new Settings tab is available that allows you to pull in all active Jira fields for Requirement objects (which integrate with a Jira instance.) You can drag/drop the Jira Requirements field individually from the Available column to the Selected column. The Jira Requirement fields placed in the Selected column will be available in the Explore Data>Requirements reports.

Additionally, you can edit the column heading, and column type for the Jira Requirement placed in the Selected column. 

To use this new feature, do the following:

  1. From Insights, select the Settings tab.
  2. Select the Jira Requirement Field option and the Jira Requirement Field page loads.
  3. In the Available Jira requirements field column, locate and click to drag/drop the chosen field to the Selected column.
  4. (Optional) Select the Edit option to edit the column heading or column type for the Jira Requirement. This will be the display of what is available in Explore Data>Requirements reports.
  5. Save to save the selected settings.
  6. Select Reset to reset the options listed in the Selected Jira Requirements column.



Unlinked Jira Defects

Insights can now report on unlinked Jira defects, which are defects created directly in a Jira project and are not associated with a qTest Manager Test Run, even though the Jira project is integrated with a qTest Manager project.

Before this release, in the Explore Data> Defects (Linked) reports, Insights would only populate Jira defects which had a test run link (we called them "linked Jira defect.") Now, Insights will populate unlinked defects into this report.

Therefore, 3 new fields are available in the Explore Data> Defects (Linked) report so you can filter if you would like to see your unlinked Jira Defects. The new fields are as follows:

  • Unlinked Defect
  • Jira Project
  • Jira Issue Type

Important: You will need to configure Manager to accept unlinked Jira defects. Those instructions can be found here.

Bug Fixes

Ticket #16485 - Unable to load panels in shared Dashboards - All of the charts in the shared tabs in Insights are not showing up. Fixed

Ticket #17309 - Getting error when filtering the field "automated" with data of Yes or No. Fixed


1.16.5 Release Notes-May 14, 2018


'Old' Report Scheduler Removed

The 'Old' Report Scheduler is now removed from production and all On Demand customers will be using the 'New' Report Scheduler that released with Insights 1.14, on November 8, 2017. 

If you chose not to migrate to the 'New' Scheduler previously, your Saved Reports are now listed as 'not scheduled' in the Schedule column as seen below.


To remedy this, read the Manage and Schedule reports with the 'new' Report Scheduler article.

Time Interval Increase for Synching Manager and Insights

The time interval for synching Manager and Insights has been increased from 5 minutes to 15 minutes in order to reduce the high load on the database server. Therefore, changes to the following in Manager will be reflected in Insights after 15 minutes:

  • Modules/ Test Cycles
  • color setting for Test Run Status
  • color setting for Defect status

Rally Defect Data now Available in Explore Data Reports

You can now pull Rally Defect Data into the Explore Data/ Defects (Linked) and Explore Data/ Manager Combined Reports. The following field values are available:

  • Rally State

Note: If a Rally defect is deleted in Rally, it will still be visible as active in Manager and Insights. Currently, there is no API from Rally to qTest to notify that a defect is deleted.

Label and Header Removed in Embedded Reports and Shareable URL Reports

The 'Embedded Viewer' label and 'Dashboard Viewer' label, along with the header bar, has been removed from reports shared with the Embed Script or Shareable URL option.

Before 1.16.5:


After 1.16.5:


Insights 1.16.4 Release Notes-May 8, 2018

Important Deprecation Notice for the 'Old' Report Scheduler

We have planned to discontinue the 'old' Report Scheduler in the next Insights 1.16.5 Release (slated for Mon/Tue, May14/15).

Please note, that the 'new' Report Scheduler was previously implemented with Insights 1.14, which released November 8, 2017. If you have already migrated from the 'old' Report Scheduler to the 'new' Report Scheduler this deprecation notice does not affect you.

On Demand customers who have yet to migrate your report schedules will be automatically moved to the 'new' Report Scheduler, which is more reliable and schedules reports to run in your local timezone instead of the previous UTC-0.

All of your saved reports will remain, but you will lose the report schedules. You will need to reschedule your desired reports using the 'new' Report Scheduler.

To easily migrate your current report schedules to the 'new' report scheduler, follow the instructions in this article.

If you choose not to migrate your current report schedules to the 'new' report scheduler before the 1.15.6 release, your Saved Reports will become listed as 'not scheduled' in the Schedule column as seen below.


To remedy this, read the Manage and Schedule reports with the 'new' Report Scheduler article.

Suggested Action Item: Note your existing report schedules (one way is to capture a screenshot) of your current schedule from the Manage Saved Reports screen. You can use your existing report schedule as a reference when implementing your report schedules in the 'new' Report Scheduler.

Added 2 new fields to Explore Data/ Test Runs.

Hot Fix Release Notes-May 3, 2018

Performance Improvement to Explore Data/ Test Cases

Note: Existing custom charts/ saved reports still work. However, to take advantage of this performance improvement you will need to remove old custom charts and saved reports which are built from the Explore Data/ Test Case then recreate new custom charts/reports. 

Ticket #16938, #16930 - Unable to work efficiently in Insights: Slowness - Performance improved.

Insights 1.16.3 Release Notes-April 24, 2018


Release Status now Included in the Global Filter

A new Release Status option has been included in the Global Filter, which now allows you to filter Releases based on their Status and their Release Name. 'Select All' is the default status value, however, you can choose one or multiple Status options. Once a Release Status is selected, the Release Selected (name) filter will reload and display only Releases that satisfy the selected Status. 


Release Date Option added to the Date Range Selector

Release Date option has been added to the Date Range Selector that will display once a Release is chosen in the Global Filter. The following panels will update the displayed start and end dates for the selected Release(s):

  • Dashboards>Dashboard Gallery>Tests Planned vs. Executed panel
  • Analysis>Velocity>Tests Planned vs. Executed panel

If multiple releases are selected in the Global Filter, then the date range displayed will be the earliest start date and the latest end date for the selected Releases.



Reason Field Added to Explore Data>Defects (qTest) Report

The Reason field has been added as a column to the Explore Data>Defects (qTest) report. This column populates Reason information that is entered in qTest Manager when a Defect is created. 

Updated Refresh Interval Times in the Global Filter

The Refresh Interval times have been updated in the Global Filter to allow greater flexibility. Now, you can choose from 1, 2, 5, 10 or 20 minutes. Previously, the time options were 30, 60, 90 or 120 seconds.
