Create Maintenance Item From Test

If an element fails a test, one likely consequence is that a Defect (Issue) item has to be raised in model maintenance to correct the problem. You can generate this Defect item directly from the test that failed.

Access

  • Select the element containing the failed test, then use one of the methods outlined here to display the Testing window or Element Browser

Ribbon

Construct > Testing > Tests > <test class> > Right-click on test > Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Start > Explore > Browse > Element Browser > Testing > <test class> > Right-click on test > Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Design > Element > Properties > Element Browser > Testing > <test class> > Right-click on test > Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Keyboard Shortcuts

Alt+3 : <test class> | Right-click on test | Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

Alt+9 : Testing > <test class> > Right-click on test > Create a Maintenance Defect from this test

The window shows a Defect item having the same name as the test.

Double-click on the Defect item to open it in the Construct window, and edit the item as necessary - you might provide values for the 'Reported By', 'Status' and 'Priority' fields.
