For a summary of items in this release, see the following highlights:

Link test cases to architecture elements of an OSLC AM provider

You can link Rational Quality Manager test cases with architecture elements of an OSLC architecture management (AM) provider such as Rhapsody Model Manager. To create these links, you must add an association between the Rational Quality Manager project area and the AM project area.

Architecture Elements menu
The Rational Quality Manager action bar menu now includes an Architecture Elements menu, which is hidden by default. To display the menu, change the setting in the project area editor, under Menu Organization > Main Menu. You can use the Architecture Elements menu to create or view architecture elements.

Architecture Element Links section
The test case editor now includes an Architecture Element Links section. You can add the section to a test case by using the Manage Sections dialog box. The Architecture Element Links section shows the architecture elements that are linked to the current test case. You can use this section to add, create, and remove architecture element links.

Validates Architecture Elements column
The test case table view now includes a Validates Architecture Elements column. You can add this column by using the Change Column Display Settings dialog box. The Validates Architecture Elements column shows the architecture elements that are linked to test cases. You can add and remove architecture elements by using the inline cell editing menu.

New SAFe 4.5 process templates

The following SAFe 4.5 process templates were added for creating a project area:

  • Quality Management for Essential SAFe 4.5
  • Quality Management for Full SAFe 4.5
  • Quality Management for Large Solution SAFe 4.5
  • Quality Management for Portfolio SAFe 4.5

Jazz Reporting Service reports include more artifact information

  • Total test script steps

Test cases

  • Total test script steps

Test case execution records

  • Is blocked

Execution results

  • Attempted script steps
  • Blocked script steps
  • Deferred script steps
  • Failed script steps
  • Inconclusive script steps
  • Passed script steps
  • Permanently failed script steps
  • Skipped script steps
  • Total script steps
  • Host name
  • Roll up
  • Total points
  • Custom properties

Suite execution results

  • Attempted script steps
  • Blocked script steps
  • Deferred script steps
  • Failed script steps
  • Inconclusive script steps
  • Passed script steps
  • Permanently failed script steps

OSLC asynchronous migration

OSLC asynchronous migration is a background process that runs after an upgraded Quality Management (QM) server is started. The migration manages migrators, which run a set of tasks on specific artifact types that require migration and publishes patch events in the Tracked Resource Set 2 (TRS2) feed that contains the changes. The execution is asynchronous and does not prevent the server from working or users from performing normal activities while the migration is running. Some features might not be displayed in Jazz Reporting Service until the migration is finished.

OSLC  migration status console
Administrators can use the asynchronous migration console to monitor and prevent a migrator from running. The console is available at the following location:
https://<domain>:<port>/<qm-context>/oslcMigrationStatus

In the table, each row represents a project area. The status and total number of migrated items are displayed for each project area.

Project area: Displays the project area name
Status: Displays the current migration status for this project area
Items migrated: Total number of migrated items

Migration status
Not started: Migration has not started for this project area
In progress: Migration is currently running for this project area
Complete: Migration is completed for this project area

Link Rational Quality Manager artifacts to Rational Team Concert files

You can now create related resource links of the type "References" from any file stored in Jazz source control to Rational Quality Manager test cases. Links are established through the Rational Team Concert Eclipse client.

SCM-linked files in the web client
If a test case is related to any source-control-managed (SCM) files, that file link is visible in the new Related Files section in the artifact editor's right sidebar. In addition, a new Linked Files column is available in the test case table views. In this column, you can see the linked files for each artifact resource in those tables.

SCM-linked files in PDF and CSV
When you export a test case table to a PDF or CSV file, the Linked Files column is included in the resulting document.

SCM-linked files in the Reportable REST API
The test case APIs were updated to include a new file element, which represents an SCM-linked file. These elements are included in the resource XML for these elements when the calmlinks=true parameter is used.

Rational Quality Manager Reportable REST API supports CRUD and query requests for custom attributes

The Rational Quality Manager Reportable REST API now supports creating, reading, updating, and deleting (CRUD) and querying a custom attribute type:

https://<server>:<port>/<context>/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/<project area>/customAttribute

For more information, see New resources in Rational Quality Manager Reportable REST API.

The query support includes fields selection and filtering:

https://<server>:<port>/<context>/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/<project area>/customAttribute?fields=feed/entry/content/customAttribute[title='custom attribute title 1']

For more information, see fields in Rational Quality Manager Reportable REST API.
