Turning on/off automatic uploading

Controlling whether or not TestArchitect uploads tests to Quality Center automatically. By default, when you request TestArchitect to upload tests, you are asked, via a dialog box, to specify the destination folder in Quality Center. With automatic uploading enabled, however, if a mapping has already been established for the given TestArchitect project item, this step is bypassed.
Remember:
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:
TestArchitect Quality Center
Test folder Folder (with subfolders representing TA test modules)
Test module Folder

Optionally, a '#' test (QC test with '#' prepended to the name) may also be created to hold essential test module metadata.

Test case Test

To enable or disable automatic uploading of a given test to Quality Center:

  1. Close TestArchitect Client, if it's running.
  2. Using your favorite text editor, open the setting file abt.ini, located at:
    • in Windows: C:\Users\Public\LogiGear\TestArchitect\Data\abt.ini
    • in Linux: /usr/local/logigear/testarchitect/data/ws/abt.ini
  3. To enable automatic uploading, set the value of is auto upload to qc to true; otherwise, set the value to false.

    Note: is auto upload to qc is defaulted to false when the file is first created.
