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. ...

After doing a few such evaluations myself in the last five years I can share my experience. TL;DR - Go with PractiTest Main reasons for my recommendation: Ease of use Customisability Has all the right/needed features to manage a QA process Integrates well with JIRA and a few other defect trackers Pricing is affordable and it is a very scalable solution - ...

Another alternative could be XStudio. It is a free tool and comes with desktop (standalone) version and online version. We are using this tool in our organization for smaller projects (teams of 3-4 people) and it is satisfying our requirements. Few of the features that I liked most and are comparative to HP: Can be integrated with third party defects ...

You might want to look at QAComplete or ALMComplete by Smartbear. We implemented it a little over a year ago for a team of 10 and are quite happy with our choice. We purchased the SaaS, cloud hosted version and were up and working with in almost immediately. I've used QC at a past job and found it to be too big too expensive and an administrative drain to ...

We use a "check-in date" (estimated completion date) after the bug is understood and we start working on the fix to estimate when the work will be done. But we use the actual date the bug is opened until it is resolved to help us track progress against bugs and work items. In burn down charts, or glideslope graphs we track the number of active issues (bugs ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

In QC/ALM Test Plan and Test Lab are completely different. Tests are generated in test plan. Scripts are not executed from this location. This is where they are stored. Tests are run out of Test Lab. You map the test lab suites to pull the tests from test plan. The execution status is tracked in the lab. You can't change that status in plan. You ...

Yup, when I extracted data on reported bugs (or defects in QC/ALM), the BUG table is where I ran my queries on. Just to check, you can preview your query results when using the Query Builder, or just go right on ahead and generate the report. Then you can compare the content of the BUG table against what you're finding in the Defects module.

Yes, it is possible to do this. Within the Analysis View, go to "New Excel Report". Excel reports are the most flexible feature of the Analysis View, because they allow you to write SQL queries against the ALM database to extract any detail you want, at any level of summary. You can then use Microsoft Excel itself to generate charts (if you desire) or pivot ...

One of the good way of use : QC is strong to trace and show what it really append in the project. If you need to change the status of a lot of test (with step), normally you must execute (like real time) the run of all your test and put the right status (like this you can challenge the real duration of your test) and QC will trace the status of your step. ...

As I know there is no possibility with the built-in GUI filter function as all filter conditions are combined with AND. But you can help yourself with Excel reports and writing your own SQL statements. This is very helpful, especially if you like to do something more sophisticated like metrics. A very minimalistic example would be following. It selects all ...

This is how I do it: Login to Quality Center. Click Test Lab/Test Plan/Wherever you keep your test cases. After creating the test set, configure the columns to display in the desired order. Right click within the Test Set list and select Export > All. Name the Export file and click save. Exporting a test set is a lot easier than exporting from the test ...

I'm working on an open source project aiming to structure and industrialize functional testing activities witch is a good alternative to HP Quality Center for small business As part of the project, a new open source tool for test management is beeing developped. We realeased it's last stable version on may ! You can download it on the project site (http://...

In version 10 of Quality Center at least modifying input or expected results makes QC to ask whether you want to update the test case in Test plan. I'm not actually sure if this is the case with scripts, but I would be suprised if not. If you answer affirmative, the test case will be checked out for you and changes are updated there. You then need to check ...

Turns out this was easily done using the LINKS table - here's an example of query to retrieve all the RUNS a bug is associated with: SELECT DISTINCT LN_BUG_ID as BugId, LN_ENTITY_ID AS EntityId FROM td.LINK WHERE LN_ENTITY_TYPE = 'RUN' UNION SELECT LN_BUG_ID, ST_RUN_ID FROM td.LINK INNER JOIN td.STEP ON LINK.LN_ENTITY_ID = STEP.ST_ID WHERE LN_ENTITY_TYPE = '...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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....

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 ...

Have you considered Seapine TestTrack? It has a requirements manager, a test case repository, a test run repository, tasks and task assignments and reports. All this, without the bloat. It is easy to use, has a web interface (and not an ActiveX control) or alternatively a windows client.

Srihari... I'm also relatively new to QC. With regard to querying the QC DB, mostly I retrieve BUG data, and learned primarily through trial and error in the Dashboard module. Initially, I didn't know which columns to include so I just did a query to select * from BUG where bg_bug_id = <some bug ID I had logged> Essentially, my base query on BUG is ...


2

couple of points/questions 1) what number of defects are we talking about ? If it's UAT and you are getting too many defects to enter manually then maybe you have other problems ? :) 2) Maintaining the defects in QC means there is a history behind them, doing it in Excel loses that. So maybe you gain from ease of use by using Excel but you could lose out ...

What operating system are you using? If it is *nix, you could use html2text.
