Copying Tests in the same project.
I have a set of Tests that I wish to perform to a number of different module within the same product release.
Each of these tests (obviously) is traced to a particular requirment.
When I copy a test (or set of tests) the link to the requirment is broken.
Has anyone found away around this?
Re: Copying Tests in the same project.
Haven't tried within a project so can't confirm if that is definitely the case but it seems reasonable that it would be. For copying from project to project I just wrote a tool to do the copy which could handle tests built from templates and optionally copy across linked requirements (and their parents) and linked defects. I had the additional complication that the projects had different db structures for user defined fields and different LoVs for those fields so I had all sorts of fun and games (stored the map between fields and LoVs in xml etc, etc and had a pretty little GUI for building the map which would take a guess at what the map should look like based on the list associated with the fields etc, etc). Not sure what I did with the tool though.
In your case the simplest thing to do would be to just use an excel macro and the OTA API to relink the requirements. Assuming the copied test cases are in a new folder they will have identical names to the original so it should be trivial to identify the source test and its linked required and add the link to the copied test.
