Run multiple data rows
I have a manual testcase which has multiple rows of data(5 rows) maintained in excel. If i export this testcase in to QC and run it from test lab, how do i repeat the steps on multiple rows of data with out adding extra run for every row of data. This is not a good candidate if automation, so i have to run it manually.
Thanks in advance
Use Test configuration in ALM 11. see the overview from the help
When you create a test in HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), you can use test configurations to test various use-cases, each time with a different set of data. A test configuration represents a specific use-case of a test. For example, a test configuration can specify a subset of data or a run-time environment that the test should use. By using test configurations, you can create more generic tests and reuse them by associating a different set of data with each configuration.
When you create a test in the Test Plan module, a single test configuration with the same name as the test is created automatically. You can view this test configuration and add additional ones in the Test Configurations tab of the Test Plan module. You associate a test configuration with data in the Parameters tab of the Test Plan module.
To provide finer granularity for requirements coverage, instead of covering each requirement only at the level of the test, you can link a requirement to a specific test configuration. For example, you can use a single test to cover multiple requirements by associating different test configurations in the same test with each requirement.
After creating coverage, you define a test set in the Test Lab module. A test set can include any or all of the test configurations defined for a test, or it can include test configurations based on requirement coverage. When you run a test set, the parameter values are retrieved from the data set according to the settings defined for each test configuration.
