So far, we have

  • manually invoked a GitHub workflow to publish pre-canned results
  • implemented and executed new test specs from scratch

This section of the tutorial walks through managing test failures and GitHub Issues.

Push New Issue

Let's now, on purpose, fail a test case, demonstrating how issues are auto-generated and managed using Testspace.

Click on Hello Manual and set the first case Test Case One to Failed. Notice the automatic settings for the ISSUES row. Feel free to add some textual description concerning the failed test case, such as This is a fake test failure.

Test Case Failed

For Failed and Blocked status options, by default, an issue will be generated:

  • The Do not report option can be used to override the default behavior.
  • The issue title is auto-filled using a combo of the Status, Spec and Case Names.

The Failed test case will be automatically generated in GitHub.

Issue Generated

Append to Issue

An existing issue can also be appended to during subsequent executions of the test case that is referencing it.

  • Run the Hello Manual spec
  • Set the test case status to Failed
  • Add a textual description - The test is still failing

The Github Issue will be updated with the new comment information.

Issue Appended

Close Issue

When an Issue is closed via GitHub the status is automatically reflected in Testspace.


Testspace supports issue management, which is essential when communicating with the development team. The following built-in functionality has been covered in this section:

  • When a test case fails the default setting is to Push new issue to GitHub
  • New test case execution information can be appended to an existing issue
