RQMExcelImporter: where is the execution result description when specifying"executionresult.dc:description" in cfg?

Don Yang (7.6k21100135) | asked Apr 10 '15, 3:29 a.m.
RQMExcelImporter 5.x and 4.0.5 tried.
In Sample Execution Result.cfg, it is:
// this configuration file will create a static testcase linked to a static configured test case which links to
// several results
// static test case definition
// static configured testcase definition with link to testcase
// result definition starting at line 5 in the spreadsheet
//links all results to all of the configured testcases in the worksheet.
executionworkitem.dc:description=D2 (D2 in xls file is: This is a placeholder testcase)
executionresult.dc:description=C (C in xls file has various description, such as: This test reported fail, This test reported false and so on)
After exporting to RQM, I can see test case, TCER and test result are generated. However, I can not find any place in which descriptions for TCER and execution result are exported to.

In other sample with execution results such as [Scripts that create testcases with TCER.cfg/Scripts that create testcases with TCER.xls] etc, it all has executionresult.dc:description=xx, but there is no place for the execution result description(NOT step descriptions which have no problem) in the exported execution result.

Does anyone know what the result of executionresult.dc:description=xx is supposed to be in using ExcelImporter? Thanks

Hi Don,

executionresult.dc:description is a Read-Only field so it cannot be set. see

We have a defect opened to set the Result details content. Link for the same is RQMExcelWordImporter : Set Result Details content for Test Cases Results associated to Test Case not linked to any TestScript (135857)

Thank you very much Reshma for the info.
From defect WI, it seems that result details will be able to set in v6.0, is that correct?

No Don. You can try with earlier version also. In that WI I only modified the cfg of Execution Result sample.

The only change needed is to replace dc:description with er:details in the cfg file

Thanks Reshma. I tried with Execution Result sample as suggested and it works. I hope all the related places in the samples can be fixed in the coming release(not only Execution Result sample has executionresult.dc:description entry)
