Update RFT test scripts automatically on all machines connected to QM

igor lyubin (131418) | asked Sep 27 '13, 7:55 a.m.
If we have a new version of our sctipts under the source control, we need to update (accept changes) them manually on all machines, connected to server with QM. Is there any posibility to update them automatically?

I would write a small script on the client with the necessary commands, I think the CCM commandline tool should do the update, but I don't know the syntax.

In RQM I would create a automated TestScript called update environment, which executes the above created script remotely.

But I've never tried it. ;-)

 Hi Igor,

This seems to be a good candidate for configuring to access the scripts from a shared resource rather than storing the scripts locally on the RFT machine.  Then you would only have to load from source control to this one area.

Shared folder??? It the same bad idea.

1. We want  do it automatically.  Can we update  our sources of tests from repository before running the  test without any handmade work?
2. For running the test from QM which using 3rd part libraries - it need to put this libraries in  customization folder [c:\ProgramData\IBM\RFT\customization\]. And the same question how we can update this libraries automatically?

RQM is not storing any scripts in the repository; it's only storing pointers to where the scripts reside.  You have to use whatever source control mechanism to update the location with the latest scripts. 

You indicated you had to do this manually on all machines.  Using a shared location would eliminate that part.  But to get them to automatically be refreshed with the latest version on some regular basis has to come from your source control tool.

We use Rational Source control tool - CCM  (other part  of JTS)... Via RTC. How we can automatically be refreshed with the latest version from  CCM  to some shared folder?
