In the test execution phase, the testing team executes test cases based on the ones prepared in the previous phase. Therefore, before initiating the test execution, it is imperative to ensure that your entry criterion is met. Once the test execution is done, the test case result, whether Pass or Fail, should be updated in the test cases.
The test result, including the defect report
, should be shared with the development team through a bug tracking tool like JIRA, Linear, or Trello to help them fix the defects on time. When the development team fixes all the identified defects, retesting should be performed. Entry criteria of the test execution phase include test plan document, test environment, test cases, and test data and the deliverables include defect report, test result or test case execution report, and traceability matrix with updated execution status.
