How to save testscripts to QualityCenter Projects
When QTP is connected to a Quality Center project, you can create new tests in QTP and save them directly to your project. To save a test, you give it a descriptive name and associate it with the relevant subject in the test plan tree. This helps you to keep track of the tests created for each subject and to quickly view the progress of test planning and creation.
To save a test to a Quality Center 10 project, you may need to follow the below mentioned steps:
*Connect to a Quality Center server and project.
*In QTP, click Save. The Save Test dialog box opens.
*Click Quality Center Tests in the sidebar and browse to and select the relevant subject folder.
*In the File Name box, enter a name for the test. Use a descriptive name that will help you easily identify the test. A test name
-Cannot exceed 220 characters (including the path)
-Cannot begin or end with spaces
-Cannot include the following characters: \ / : * ? ” < > | % ‘
-Cannot contain two consecutive semicolons
*Confirm that the Save Active Screen files is selected if you want to save the Active Screen files with your test. If you clear this box, your Active Screen files will be deleted, and you will not be able to edit your test using Active Screen options.
*Click Save to save the test and close the dialog box. Note that the text in the status bar changes while QTP saves the test.
The next time you start Quality Center 10.00, the new test will be included in the Quality Center test plan tree.
Please note, if you later need to save standalone, portable copies of tests stored in a Quality Center project, you can do so. For example, you may need to open or run a test while travelling because you do not have access to Quality Center.
