Would there be a way in RQM to perform a "Search & Replace" in all test cases of a project?

 One option would be to perform a Bulk Update

Updating multiple artifacts

From any list view window, you can make bulk updates to multiple test artifacts at once. For example, you can change all the test cases from the Development Iteration to the Integration Iteration. You can also change dependent category values.


  1. Open one of the list views.

    For example, click Construction Browse > Test Cases to open a list of the test cases in the project, or select Execution Browse >Test Suite Results to open a list of the test suite results in the project.

  2. In the listing, select the artifacts to change by inserting a check in the left-most column.
  3. To the right of the column heading whose values you want to change, click the Change icon ( Bulk change ).
    Note: There are column headings for any categories and custom attributes that you have defined and for Risk, State, Owner, and so on. The icon will be absent from attributes that do not support bulk editing.
  4. In the window that opens, select or type the replacement value. Click OK.

Hello, and thank you for your answer.

But that is not really the problem we have.

In fact the need is to change for example a part of the description, or the text of some steps.

And so, the need is to search a string and to replace its value by another string.

Do you think it is possible?
