Creating a Test Session from a Test Plan/Test Objective

Creating a Test Session from a Test Plan/Test Objective

Is there any way to automatically populate a Test Session with all of the Tests that have already been added to a Test Plan or Test Objective. 

I feel like there should be a way, as otherwise, Test Plans seem a bit redundant (other than as a container for Test Objectives). Surely the use for a Test Plan should be to then go and perform the tests in the plan during a Test Session??

Re: Creating a Test Session from a Test Plan/Test Objective

You can certainly accomplish this via a trigger based on a state change or another trigger action on the item.  You may have a trigger script on your server called postLinkedIssue.js that could be used as a starting point to accomplish this.  

Conversely, if you dont have anyone with javascript skills you can simply select the Test Objective and say copy item (assuming this is a menu option you have) select test session and ensure the Tests field and any others of interest are in the copy fields dialogue box (this can be defaulted by an admin) and click OK and with a couple of clicks you now have your test session with all the tests from the objective.  

If you truly always have a session with all tests from a test objective then perhaps it makes no sense to even use the Test objective object?  What value is it providing at this point?  If its a few fields perhaps you can move them onto the test session?
