What kind of syntax is it possible to use in HP-ALM string filtering?
For example something like this:
Software Quality Assurance & Testing Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for software quality control experts, automation engineers, and software testers. It only takes a minute to sign up.Sign up to join this community
As far as I know there are only locigal conditions and wildcards.
Maybe if you have a description like
This is my test-ticket you can search for it with something like
*test*. This works like if you use the SQL-Statement
LIKE with a front and a back
test* would not find the example as it does not start with
test. Same with
*test as there are characters behind it.
If you have whitespace in your search you have to put it into double quotes (
") like this:
And then you can combine those terms with
= (see list in the select filter condition dialog).
As far as I know there are not more regExs but I'm not sure. I didn't find anything in the documentation about it.
In addition to the answer from bish: You can also filter like this:
*text1*text2* - so you do not need to put the filter into double quotes.
Usually I filter on different fields like:
Assigned to - me Status - "not closed and not tested and not rejected" (without quotes)
Further information: After you have configured a filter you can save it as a favorite. Just click on "Favorites" and then on "Add to Favorites"
Either save them under private so only you can use it or save them under public so everyone with access can use it.
This allows you to easily switch between several filters and use the favorite and then adapt it to your current need.
