Copying project properties to other project areas

You can copy the project properties from an existing project area to another project area on the same or different IBM® Engineering Test Management server by using the Copy Project Properties utility.


  1. On the Engineering Test Management server, go to the ..\tools\CopyProjectProperties folder in the location where Engineering Test Management is installed, for example, C:\Program Files\IBM\JazzTeamServer\server\conf\qm\tools\CopyProjectProperties. For more information, see Managing project properties in a Quality Management project.
  2. Extract all the files from the file.
  3. Before you copy the project properties, read the CopyProjectPropertiesUtility_readme.txt file.
    • Lab resources, channel properties, test plan environment types, team areas, timelines, and project execution variables do not support copying properties.
    • In the source project area, when you delete project properties that contain user-defined test artifacts, such as categories and custom attributes, the properties and test artifacts are copied but the test artifacts are deleted in the destination project area. That is, the deleted test artifacts can be restored from the Trash page. However, permanently deleted test artifacts are not copied and cannot be restored.


You can now copy the project properties to another project area on the same or different Engineering Test Management server.
