Groups

Crystal Test allows for several grouping options; Releases, Sprints, and Groups. Groups can be thought of as categories. The purpose of a group is to allow easier and faster filtering of test cases based on functionality of a project. For example, all test cases referring to logging into a site may belong to a group called ‘Authentication’. Likewise, any other test cases that refer to authenticating a user would also belong to the Authentication group. You may also define a group to be a specific test type, such as ‘Smoke Test’ and add any test cases that should be executed during a smoke test to this group. Another possibility may be a web page group and any test case that would be executed to test functionality on a specific page may be added to that group. There is no limit to the number of groups a test case can belong to. Groups also allow you to view metrics based on the test cases belonging to the group. A group must be created in Crystal Test before a test case can be assigned to it.

Personal Groups

Personal groups are similar to regular groups except they belong only to a single user. Only the creator of the personal group will be able to see that group in the group lists. This can be helpful in many situations, such as when you have a select set of test cases that do not necessarily belong to the same functional group but need to be accessed quickly in the future.
