About writing configuration file for excel importer

Abhishek Kumar (1317) | asked May 04 '19, 2:04 a.m.

 I want to import the excel file for test cases into the qm, for that i need to write the configuration file.

I am facing problem in creating attributes inside the test case design section.
Can you explain how to create attibutes or fields inside the section and populate that according to the excel sheet.
I read the explanation to write the cfg file in ibm site , but in there it was mentioned no where that how to write it for creating attributes inside the section.

Thank you

Testcase Design Section can contain only the RichText data, you can not insert attributes. Please refer 'Test Cases made from scripts.cfg' from sample folder where tesecase design section is updated from Rich Text data of Excel.

In case you mean to create attribute using configuration file from Excel sheet, then refer 'TestCases 001 with custom attributes.cfg' from sample folder for reference implementation.

 Thanks mehul,

But can we insert the part of excel file in the form of tables directly to test design section?

Yes Abhishek, you can use HTML() function in configuration file to prepare the table and assign it as test case design section, refer wiki for HTML syntax support.
