Tag Support in Test Case

Ang Yi (1123) | asked Jun 10 '15, 10:32 p.m.
We want to put some tags, or similar attributes for a test case, for example, A test case cover 1K, 10K, 50K,...5M document, and touch pdf, msdoc, txt, jpg etc. file format... How to describe these kind of attributes for test cases in RQM? Ideally, we also want to search test cases & execution records based on these attributes ... please advise. thanks!

You can create custom attribute(s) for tagging purpose or use the existing Test Description section for Tags.
You can search for those tags as well:

Thanks for quick response!

Yes, you're right. we may create custom attribute for tagging purpose, but the scope of this attribute is only for test cases, and when we kick off a testing in RQM, which will generate a execution record, the new record don't have the same tagging attributes with the same value, correct ?  Do we have any other options to link the custom attributes between test case and execution record ?

Unfortunately there is no concept of global attribute in current RQM, you will have to create the same attribute and set the same value in TCER.
You may consider to use custom category for test case and TCER. While it is the same that you can not have a shared category for both of them, the values are shared so once you define the category and values in test cases, you can see those values when you define TCER and set the same there. You will still need to manually set the value in TestCase and TCER separately though(you have the same value sets hence can select the same one manually).
