Is it possible to genrate history records, for test steps, in the Test Plan module? I notice all the system fields, in 'TEST STEP', for Project Entities, can not have history turned on. Even user fields can not have history set. If I set field to 'Y' through SQL, will that cause an issue?
In QC 9.2 the history of a field is a kept in a combination of two tables: AUDIT_LOG and AUDIT_PROPERTIES. We track history on some fields in the Defects module, and the record of these changes can be found in these tables.
I think you'd have to find a way to write the history of design step changes to these two tables - outside of what is available in QC - which is something I haven't heard of or seen done before.
You might also search TDForums, as that is another very good resource for HP testing tools.
I posted the same scenario to TDForums also. So, far not much response. I don't know if it's based on how audit records are created, but from what I've gathered, no system or user field, created in the 'Design Step' Entities , can have history. I'm curious as to why, since it would be good for us to be able to track step changes.
