Description Matt Zywusko 2010-05-24 14:37:12 UTC
Description of problem:

Would like a point and click mechanism for finding groups of tests. For example, it would be useful to search for (or easily add to) the Kernel Tier 1 or Tier 2 tests. Now you have to search through the test sources to find those tests. This would be useful so users could define (create, add and remove) suites and tests to suites. 

Use cases would include:

Create a suite or group of tests (e.g. "HBARegression") 
Add a test to a group or groups
Remove a test to a group or groups
Search for groups of tests (should show what the group contains)

This would give users the ability to organize their tests better, better enable developers & QE to contribute to groupings of tests (like regression suites per area of functionality)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Beaker Version - 0.5.38 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Beaker UI
2. Look in Task Library
Actual results:
No groupings of tests - even though groupings might be in the test metadata

Expected results:

Managing test metadata is outside of Beaker's scope, please use an external tool such as TCMS for this.
