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.
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.
