A Test Set was deleted and we would like to get more information about who did it. 


Release : SAAS



A Test Set mysteriously disappeared 


If you know one or more Test Cases that were associated to the Test Set you can view their Revision History for a recent entry like the following which would include the name of the user who made the change:

TEST CASE removed from TEST SET [Example]

This entry is made when ever a Test Case is removed from a Test Set though so you may also need to more information to confirm. If you know of multiple Test Cases that were associated you can compare their Revision Histories to see if they were all removed at the same time by the same person. Also, if you know the approximate time it was deleted you can look for an entry in that time range.   


The following unsupported python script can also help locate revisions that contain the "removed from TEST SET" text.

Once installed, set the search_string to the name of the test set in the square brackets, and set the number of weeks back that you want to search revision history.

* Note that this will not find a test set if it was renamed just prior to being deleted


Additional Information

If you are unable to locate who deleted the Test Set with the above steps it may be possible for us to locate this information in our logs. However, it can be difficult to locate specific events due to the amount of information in them. Because of this it helps to provide us additional information so we can focus our search. Some information that may help us locate an entry include the following:

The approximate date it was deleted. 

The URL of the deleted Test Set

The likely domain in the User ID of the person who may have deleted it.
