As you have mentioned that when you access the application without a proxy it works fine, but when using via proxy (recording script for JMeter) you are not able to access the application. From this I understand you are using JMeter's built-in script recorder. Well it does create some problems some times, because some applications don't work well on proxy. ...

If the "development side of the house" is already using TFS, then you would be crazy to consider HPQC. Both HPQC and TFS use per seat licensing, and you will have to pay double. TFS is a true ALM solution that includes source control, developer work item tracking, build support and everything that the developers need to do their jobs, and in the later ...

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 %. So test* would not find the example as it does not start with test. Same with *test as there are ...

Try this condition: "FoG*" Or "F&G*" ALM search does not support regular expressions. The expression above will return you all the records which start from FoG and from F&G

Since you tagged this question with Quality-Center I am going to assume that you mean a Call to Test as in the example test case below which has several steps that are calls to other Tests. There is no straight forward way to do this. However, you have either access to the database or a version of Quality Center which has the Dashboard you can query the ...

Yes, you can do that. For this you need to save your common/shared test steps in a new test case and then change it to a template using 'Mark as Template Test'. Then where ever you need these shared steps, open that test case and in the test step section of that case select the option 'Call to Test' and then select the shared test case template which you ...

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....

You asked about quality, but then you asked about performance, so I assume you are specifically interested in performance. The short answer is no. There are tools that will analyze performance while it is running to tell you which parts of the code are the busiest. Those tools will not tell you whether you are using slow algorithms. And a hot spot is ...

you can follow below mentioned step to create TCs with Steps. Go to Test Plan Select the Folder where your TCs are stored. Click on Analysis Click on Report Select Tests with Design Steps Please refer the screenshot for more details.

Quality center has possibility to redefine the workflow of any group of records, therefore it is hard to say what you should do. Probably you do not have the possibility to change it, indicating you are not an administrator of the project, so you should ask your administrator what is next step in the workflow. I can only guess, that the record has date of ...

I have to copy a test set in test lab of QC from one folder to another but I want to preserve the status of the test cases in the new test set. Unfortunately, there is no way to copy a test set and preserve the test execution data from the HP ALM Client. You have a choice to either move the test set to another folder which will preserve execution data or ...

The ISO 9126 has some kind of templates for its own implementation: metrics that can be used for each quality characteristics, guidelines for the measurement process and usage of the standard. You will need a full version of the standard to get it, because these are rarely described in the comments on the standard. So buy it, or grab a copy in your company ...

I would recommend Apache JMeter as it is: free open source can be used for load testing as well can be used for both RESTful and SOAP web services provides JSON Path Extractor and JSON Path Assertion for correlation and conditionally setting pass/fail criteria can be integrated with Selenium WebDriver so it will be a swiss-army-knife solution for all your ...

ReadyAPI/SoapUI Pros GUI based so non-technical members can use it fairly easily Assertions are built in so validations are available for the most part Majority of use cases can be implemented without customizations You can leverage functional tests for load/performance with additional LoadUI license Cons Cost - yearly license fee per user, per SmartBear ...

Follow the steps to get the Excel: Select the folder in test plan. Click on the Analysis > Project Report > Tests with design steps. This will generate the report in web page. On the top right corner you will see "Generate" option: Click that, and it will generate the HTML. Right-click and Export to Microsoft Excel.

It depends on the testing tool you use, if it creates a copy when you add the same test case to the suite or just link it. For example, in Microsoft's Test Manager you cannot verify in which testing suite was the test case created/used, only if the suite is a User Story/Product Backlog Item. I would suggest you to test first your testing suite with a simple ...

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but is the difference here that the requirement is not passed: ...don't have the run status 'passed' and the query looks for is passed TS_EXEC_STATUS IN ('Passed', 'No Run') If you change that line to omit the 'Passed' string, do you get the desired results? eg TS_EXEC_STATUS IN ('No Run')

I had the same error message when I tried to change the status of a ticket from (lets say) A to C in our tracker. The problem was that the workflow didn't allow to change from status A to C directly. I had to change it to B first and then from B to C. So I think the status "Watchlist" can't be accessed directly from "In progress" in your quality-center. ...

We have made rollback and reinstall HP ALM 12.20 on the server and on local machines, this helped to solve the problem.

POSTMAN is the defacto standard when it comes to REST API testing. Its pretty intutive GUI makes REST API testing pretty simple even for the novice testers. The only drawback for this tool is that you would have to do visual validation of your headers, response code, response body etc. There is no automated, batch type interface for creating batch tests. If ...

Testers should never delegate or assign defects to developers. The tester have a signaling function, you signal that something is out of order. Now someone else should decide what to-do with this signal, for example the owner of the product could prioritize based on risks and feature importance. Testers in a dev-team: When testers are working in a team then ...

If you don't have problems in using a external hosting system, you can use a combination of JIRA (bug tracking) and Confluence (team collaboration and requirements managment). For locally hosted systems, I would recommend Bugzilla or Redmine. Details of these tools and and a list of others can be found here.

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think there is such a feature. you can only link defects on the same level. Note And you can also link requirements and tests but that has nothing to do with this topic.

You can do that in a clean and bullet-proof way only if you enable (and license) the version control support in QC/ALM. Then, your user could check out the test, guaranteeing that nobody else can modify it. For the cross-project work you outlined, QC also has features in the release manager module, but for those to work really good you also need to enable (...

If the price is not a matter, then TFS. However, it is not a TM tool, it is a full development pipeline, management, CI, everything tool. I have been working with it for years and I found it a very good tool.

If you only need a few test cases, the following steps will work: Select the test cases you need. Right-Click on them Choose "Send by Email ..." and again "Send by Email ..." In the following dialog, there is an area with check boxes that let you include information. Mark the "Design Steps" check box, type in your email address and hit "Send". You will ...

If you have VS/TFS in house already, use the skills in the teams to help you set it up. Whilst QC is completely customisable, it is not real easy to customise the items you want My company historically bought QC back when there was a central test team across the whole group, and it worked well. Since restructuring the test teams have all kept with QC, but ...

If you're already using TFS in-house it makes a lot more sense to use the Microsoft toolset for ALM and issue tracking (although I'd look at upgrading to 2013 - TFS management has been made a lot easier compared to 2010, and builds the testing side into the web interface) That said, Microsoft Test Manager is (in my view) more geared to manual testing ...

I think the issue here might be in your recursive call to IterateOverReqs. You pass in the parameter tn which is the top node, therefore, all your requirements are being added to that top node. Instead, you should pass in the t node so that lower level requirements are added to the node just above it instead of the top node. private void IterateOverReqs(...
