Use Cases: Custom Reporting

Overview

This article provides four example use cases for Custom Reporting, in which you can learn how to build reports for the following:

  • Defects per Module
  • Test Cases Executed per Week and Month
  • Test Cases Created Within a Specific Time Frame
  • Count of Test Cases by Test Case Type

For more information on Custom Reporting, please refer to this article.

  2. Select the +Chart icon to begin building your Custom Report.
  3. Enter in the following information:
    • Label Column: Module (Level 3)
      • Note: Your Module "Level" depends on the project module hierarchy. For instance, in the "Jira Integration Project-My Online Shop" Project, there are three hierarchal levels:
        • Jira Integration- My Online Shop (1)
          • Imported From Jira (2)
            • Project Test ABC (3)
            • Ticket Booking System (3)
            • C1 (3)
            • C2 (3)
            • Team Integration (3)
            • Team Automation (3)
      • In this example, you want to view the Defects per Module Data for the Level 3 Module, so you select "Module (Level 3)."
    • Data Column: Defects (Linked); Distinct Count
      • Note: The Distinct Count option tells my Report to count all unique ID Defects linked to each Level 3 Module.
    • Bar Orientation: Horizontal
    • Relevance: Top Values; Automatic; Show: Others
