Disconnecting from the Zephyr server

If it is no longer required, you may terminate the connection between the Zephyr server and your TestArchitect repository.
Tip: It should be noted that the following is not an essential process. A connection to a third party tool (such as Quality Center or Team Foundation Server) is only active when it is in use. Hence, leaving a tool "connected" only really means that the repository is configured to allow for such a connection to be activated when needed. Also, while it is true that only a single external tool may be connected at a given time, configuring a repository to connect to a new tool has the effect of automatically disconnecting any other tool that is already connected.
Restriction: Integration between TestArchitect and Zephyr has been deprecated since TestArchitect version 8.3 Update 2.
Note: At present, TestArchitect-Zephyr integration supports versions 4.5 and 4.6 of Zephyr.

To disconnect TestArchitect from a Zephyr server, do the following:

  1. In the TestArchitect explorer tree, expand the Administration > Tool Profiles > External Tool > Test Management node.
    Note: Only TestArchitect users belonging to the administrator group are able to view and modify the Administration node in the explorer tree.
  2. In the expanded list of options, double-click the Zephyr node. The Test Management tab appears in the editor.
  3. Clear the Active check box to terminate the connection to Zephyr.
  4. Click Apply.
TestArchitect terminates the connection with Zephyr, and is now available to connect with another external tool.
