Importing Quality Center tests into a TestArchitect test module
Tests residing in Quality Center can be imported into TestArchitect. Each Quality Center test is mapped automatically to a test case in TestArchitect.
Ensure that the machine hosting the TestArchitect repository server has the HP ALM Connectivity Add-in installed, to allow for integration and synchronization between TestArchitect and HP Quality Center.
Ensure that you have already taken the following steps:
- Registered the Quality Center server with TestArchitect.
- Mapped the TestArchitect project containing the test cases of interest to the Quality Center project.
TestArchitect relies on test modules that are typically developed and executed as standalone units. Each test module is comprised of a sequence of test cases. By contrast, the standard unit of test development and execution in Quality Center is the test, which more closely corresponds to a test case in TestArchitect than a test module. Hence each uploaded TestArchitect test case takes the form of a Quality Center test. In general, the following correspondences are used when moving test assets between the two systems:
|Test folder||Folder (with subfolders representing TA test modules)|
|Test module||FolderOptionally, a ‘#’ test (QC test with ‘#’ prepended to the name) may also be created to hold essential test module metadata.|
You have two options when importing tests from Quality Center to TestArchitect:
Importing a Quality Center test
A test in the test plan of an HP Quality Center project may be imported into an existing TestArchitect test module, generating a new test case in the module.
Importing a Quality Center folder
A folder in the test plan of an HP Quality Center project may be imported into an existing TestArchitect test folder, generating new test modules and/or test folders.
