Regression Tests

This feature is available in Ultimate edition only.


Regression Tests are essentially templates for Acceptance Tests. They define the manual tests that can be organized and executed as part of regression planning activities. Regression Tests can be created from scratch or can be generated from Acceptance Tests that are defined on completed stories. Every time a Regression Test is added to a Test Suite or Test Set, it creates an Acceptance Test, with the parent story/backlog item or defect being the Test Set. 

The regression test repository can be organized using tags and then grouped into specific regression suites that will be used as templates to generate the executable acceptance tests on test sets. In this way, regression tests act as long-term templates for verifying previously delivered functionality that can be run repeatedly in the form of acceptance tests. 


In VersionOne, you cannot associate Tests with Backlog Groups. You can, however, associate them to a Test Set, as a parent Backlog Item for Regression Tests.

Accessing Regression Tests

To access the Regression Tests page from the main menu, select Product Planning. The regression tests in the current project and all of its sub projects.

Creating a Regression Test

At the end of each sprint, new regression tests are typically generated from the list of acceptance tests attached to a story or defect. The team decides which tests should be promoted to a regression test.

Unattached regression tests can also be created new using the Add button on the page, the Add New... function in the left navigation area, or using the Excel import.

  1. From the main menu, select Product Planning > Regression Tests.

  2. Click Add Regression Test.

  3. Enter the required information, and then click Save.

Note that Regression tests can also be generated directly from acceptance tests for previous stories.

Editing a Regression Test

  1. From the main menu, select Product Planning > Regression Tests.

  2. Click the Edit button next to the test. The details page displays.

  3. Click the Edit button to change test details.

    • In the details page, you can also participate in conversations, add links and file attachments, and  establish and edit relationships between the regression test and other assets in the system.

Moving a Regression Test to a Project

Edit the Project on a regression test to move it to a new project in the hierarchy. Use the multi-select feature to move multiple items at once.
