Blocking defects in test execution records

Ranjith Parameswaran (12311215) | asked Sep 04 '12, 6:17 a.m.


Does blocking defect feature of the test execution record work if ClearQuest is selected as the defect provider. I was not able to find the option to add defects to an execution record neither was able to spot the manage blocking defects icon.

Any suggestions in this area is much appreciated.

Hi Ranjith.

The Rational Quality Manager integration with ClearQuest now supports automatic unblocking of test case execution records when a blocking ClearQuest defect is resolved. When you configure automatic unblocking, the change management integration service runs at a selected interval and checks for blocking defects that have been resolved. To use this feature, you must be using ClearQuest version or later with the OSLCLinks package version 1.2. Follow these instructions to configure the change management integration service:
  1. Click Admin > Manage Application.
  2. Under Configuration, click the Advanced Properties section.
  3. Scroll to the RQM Change Management Integration section and click Edit.
  4. Enter a user name and password for ClearQuest.
  5. For Delay, type a value, in seconds, for the interval at which you want the change management integration service to run. The default value is 500 seconds.
Hope this helps!!
