RQM: Description for multiple testcases

Hello,

we have always a set of test cases, where we need to add the identical description. E.g. Pin Assignment of DUT.
Is it possible to store this data in RQM without duplicating it?
Copy of an external document as attachment does not really help, since the data is not updated automatically if the source is changing.

If we group test cases under a test plan we could add some information there. But a test plan contains also other test cases where this information is not required (or maybe even wrong).

 thanks!

Hi Jörg,

You could have a try of group the test cases by category.  By assigning categories to your artifacts, you can set up a hierarchical directory structure that is useful for keeping artifacts organized, see http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/clmhelp/v4r0m5/index.jsp?re=1&topic=/com.ibm.rational.test.qm.doc/topics/c_organize_with_categories.html

Best Regards,

Hello Bing Dong,

thank you for the answer. we already group test cases with categories. The question is where to put general information/description for a group of test cases? It seems that we have to copy a description info each test case. Of course this is not manageable:-)

   Thanks, Jörg
