Procedure documentationAssigning Testers at Test Case Level


You can assign a tester to test a test case in a test package. Only this tester can set the processing status of the test case. When testing, testers only see those test cases assigned to them, and those not assigned to any tester.

You can specify the tester's system user, or a business partner assigned to this system user.


  • You have created a test plan with at least one test package, in the test plan management, and have assigned at least one tester to the test package. For more information, see Creating Test Plans, Creating Test Plans for Projects, and Assigning a Tester to a Test Package.

    Note Note

    You can only assign test cases to testers who are also assigned to the test package.
