Verifying about the required access permission for using different actions of the Test plans feature

  • 1.  Verifying about the required access permission for using different actions of the Test plans feature

    Posted 09-06-2021 03:49

    Hi,

    I want to verify about the access permission required for using Test plans feature

    Nr.

    Action

    Required Access Permission

    1

    Execute Test run

    Read Only Access Permission at Project level

    2

    Start Test Run as well as Save and Close for a Test run

    Read Only Access Permission at Project level

    3

    Log a Defect as well as Save and Close for a Defect

    Read Only Access Permission at Project level as well as other levels under Project

    4

    Test Cycle | Actions | Assign Test Runs

    Read & Write Access Permission at Project level

    5

    Test Cycle | Actions | Make Test Runs Current

    Read & Write Access Permission at Project level

    6

    Test Cycle | Actions | Batch Update Test Run Status

    Read & Write Access Permission at Project level

     Is my list correct?

    It is confusing for our team, the expectation was someone having only "Read Only Access Permission" shall not be able to edit any content. It is not the case here for the action (1),(2) and (3).

    Was the implementation as intended? But why?

    Hi,

    that's something I'd like to know too.
    I have not found anything in the official documentation about permission required in Test plans.

    Hi all!

    There is a diagram that I've found very helpful - Permissions by License Type.

    This breaks down most of what you seem to be asking for. From what I can tell, it would seem that the actions you've details would need Read/Write permissions but please let me know if I am missing anything.

    HI Decoteau,

    thanks for the diagram.
    What Florian and I were focusing on is the Permissions for the Creator License.
    The fact is, there are the differences between the given documentation and what I have in our instance.


    In the documentation, it is said - Creator needs Read/Write Permission to Execute Test runs and Log defects( from Test run windows).
    In my test, I see the Creators needs only Read Permission to Execute Test runs and Log defects (from Test run windows).

    Hi Lien,

    Thank you for clarifying. Yes, I can verify through testing that a user with a Creator license and Read-Only permissions to a Project can Execute Test Runs and Log Defects (from that window.) 

    I believe the intent behind that graph was to show how those actions may be more restricted with other non-Creator licenses. However, it could be made more clear that Creator licenses have those additional abilities.

    I will file a request to add this note to our User Guide. 

    Please let me know if you have any questions!
