#14116 new defect

Wrong Status of test cases in testplan is displayed

Reported by: Michael.Breu@… Owned by: Roberto Longobardi
Priority: normal Component: TestManagerForTracPlugin
Severity: critical Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 1.2



This Testmanagementplugin is excelent, and we decided to use it for our customers.

Unfortunately just after convincing our customers to apply it, we found a severe bug:

The status of the individual tests contained in a test plan are displayed wrongly, if these tests have not been worked on (i.e. they have an empty history).

In this case, the status of the previous testcase is copied. This renders the work in a testplan nearly unusable.

My environment:

  • trac v.1.2.3
  • testmanager plugin 1.9.1

Since we needed a fast solution, we debugged the plugin and found the culprit:

In method get_test_catalog_data_model (about line 1400) there is a loop

                            for ts, author, status in tcip.list_history():

If the history of the testcase is still empty, the variable status is not reset, the state of the previous testcase in the outer loop is used.

The solution is, to initialize the status here

                            status = ''
                            for ts, author, status in tcip.list_history():

Indeed it could be wise, also to initialize ts and author.

Best regards Michael

Thanks a lot Michael. I just integrated your patch and release it into 1.10.1.

Unfortunately I don't have a 1.9.x branch, but if you need the patch to be on top of the 1.9.x release, because you're not on Trac 1.4 or higher yet, please let me know and I'll make it.

I also released a 1.9.2 version with the patch on top of 1.9.1:

There is now a branch to continue maintaining Trac versions previous to 1.4.

Thanks again Michael for the patch!
