This is very interesting thanks Carmen, one of our current user groups has opted not to use Defeciency Management but to raise issues or recommendations in the event of 'non-effective' test cases. We have found this to work quite well, but it can be confusing to still have the Defeciency field and associated drop dowm menu available in the test case, so we would prefer to have an option to blank it out or select a default value if configurable. Accordingly, I will be waiting with interest to see what changes the upgrade will bring us.
Dear Carmen, when do you expect the new release to be available?
I guess, we will release the new version end of this year.
it seems we have an opposite problem in the combination Testing Management <> Defiency Management. This could answer your question?
in our case, the test reviewer does not see the dropdown Deficiency field in the testcase (he can perform all test reveiwing actions, except the deficiency status is simply not visible)... and unfortunately... we would like to "activate" this Defiency status field in the testcase.
We're trying around to understand WHY we do not see this. Our latest guess is the fact that no deficiency managers were defined in ARIS Business Designer for these specific testcases.
This may be a workaround to solve your problem - if you would have any feedback on this idea we're happy to hear this as well
