Is it possible to modify artifacts and then import and recreate links ?


RICHA AWASTHY (18257) | asked Jul 19 '13, 1:56 a.m.
A client is using RQM 4.x and wants to achieve below :
1. Export RQM artifacts into a csv file.
2. Reorganize artifacts regarding the scenario using EXCEL with the csv file.
3. Import the reorganized artifacts from the csv file.
4. Recreate the links among test suite, cases, scripts and executed results.
Is it something which is achievable ?
I am not sure about the 4th step.
Appreciate inputs on this.
Thanks

 Hi Feng,
when creating testcase you can using the testcase.testscript=Link("internal id")
the internal id should be the id of the testscript.
i.e. you can check on the RQM web UI, if the id of the testscript is "23456"
then the internal id should be "urn:com.ibm.rqm:testscript:23456".

 by the way, you don't need to store all urn:com.ibm.rqm:testscript:23456 in the excel cell

just 23456 would be fine and you can use the config
 testcase.testscript=Link("urn:com.ibm.rqm:testscript:" & id)

Hi Hao,

Thanks a lot.
I am on behalf of Richa to reply the question you asked.

In Step 3, we use RQM Excel importer.
In Step 4, we are trying to apart a test case (there're over several hundred test cases to go) contains multiple test scripts, and make them one test case one script. Thus, the original test case will turn into a new test suite.

With csv export and RQM Excel importer, we get test scripts' titles and descriptions, and create new test cases based on that. (Use the RQMExcelImporter sample "TestSuite with TestCases 001.cfg".) But the imported new test cases don't link to anything by itself. It requires that manually assign related test scripts to the new test cases. Are there any tool can be achievable this?

 Hi Richa,
in your step 3, you mentioned import, are you using Excel Importer?
for step 4, my understanding is that you exported "test suite, cases, scripts and executed results. " to csv, and want to reimport them and recreate links, what do you mean by links? do you want new set of artifacts and linking them together?
