Hi All,

I tried to use the RQM-Extras-RQMExcelWordImporter- plugin. I pulled a .rqms file and extracted test cases. In RQM it had 4 Test Steps. As a POC, I tried to add more step manually and export back to RQM.

Question 1


1. "Export to RQM" is plugin for excel Developed by IBM . Currently it is not able to connect to Server.


5/8/2020 12:00:56 PM: ERROR: <Unknown Caller Context>: failed to get from server: Unable to connect to the remote server

5/8/2020 12:00:56 PM: INFO: <Unknown Caller Context>: Send Status: ConnectFailure


Question 2

Our objective is to update the Test step of a test case. We have a test automation editor using which Test scripts can be created. It has captions which have the name of steps and expected Value ex :

 Set Voltage = 12

 Check Voltage == 12

Using a tool we can generate an XML file and push to Doors Classic Successfully. And Link via DXL Testcases and requirements. 

We want to achieve the same with Doors NG. Current Plugin of VtestStudio allows to put names of Testcases but not test steps of this. To make Testspec with Testcases and test steps, we made a tool which generates XML file. 

We can modify XML mapping, but No idea - how to push this XML to Doors NG, So that it updates the test cases with test steps.

Thank you very much in advance.

 Problem of login is solved by Installing " RQMExcelImporterSetupForDotNET45.exe" not the one mentioned in Question. Now I am able to login. But Unfortunately no projects are appearing. 

However, To our Admin Project are showing up and we modified the testcase ( .rqms file) with same copy of test steps only. It was success while exporting. Most strange thing - Not got updated
