Oh, where to start ;)

  • relationship between Test Plan, Test Case, Test Script, Test Execution Record, etc.  Don't even get me started on Test Suites; avoiding them.
  • How to reuse test scripts.  Turns out we were using RQM wrong for years by assuming that multiple test scripts associated with one test case would all be executed for a TER.
  • Editing test scripts - still don't have the hang of it.
  • I still don't understand some ramifications of editing properties, e.g., what does it really mean if I archive a particular iteration.  I do it because the list is too long when I want to filter TERs or create new TERs - but am I breaking something I won't know about until later?
  • The fact that editing a test script, while it's being executed is NOT the same thing as actually editing the test script.
  • Accidentally 'running' a test script because you want to walk through the steps.  I'm constantly cleaning up TERs that newbie testers are creating.
  • I also find the doc next to useless because it's impossible to filter on just RQM.  For instance, when I do try to find help on something in the properties view, I end up with a bunch of stuff about other CLM apps - dont' need it, I just want to know about RQM.
