Engineering Test Management is an integral part of the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) solution.

New in IBM Engineering Test Management 7.0.2

For a complete list of new and noteworthy items in this release, see the New & Noteworthy Details.

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

Simplified linking for OSLC link types

You can now drag-and-drop test artifacts from test artifact editors or test artifact list views into a work item editor in EWM or requirement editor in DOORS Next. Similarly, you can copy a test artifact link by using the existing copy option in the test artifact editor or test artifact list view and paste the copied test artifact link into other artifact editors. The link creation feature works between the ELM applications that are registered to the same Jazz Team Server.

Customization of execution states for test script step results

In ETM, you can customize the execution states under the Execution States section in the Manage Project Properties > Properties. Until this release, you were able to customize execution states for test case results and test suite results.

From this release, the support is now extended to include the following enhancements:

  • You can now customize execution states for the test script step results along with test case results and test suite results.
  • You can now see the scope of the execution states under the Execution States section in the Manage Project Properties > Properties page.
  • ETM Reportable Rest API now shows the customized labels of the test script step result verdict and execution schedule result.

ETM Excel/Word Importer Utility is now supported on desktop version of Excel and Word from Microsoft 365 Apps

ETM Excel/Word Importer Utility is now supported on the desktop versions of Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word from Microsoft 365 (formerly known as Office 365).

OIDC application password support is provided for the ETM Excel/Word Importer Utility

ETM Excel/Word Importer Utility now supports a new type of authentication process to connect to ELM applications that are configured for OpenID Connect (OIDC) authentication by using the Jazz Authorization Server (JAS).

You can use the new authentication process with the ETM Excel/Word Importer Utility to work in an environment that uses third-party identity providers, such as SAML or OIDC for authentication without any direct support for the protocol that is used by these identity providers. Instead, users receive an application password from JAS. The application password is generated by the configured third-party identity provider. For example, a user can select SAML with the two-factor authentication process and use the application password for authentication with the ELM applications.
