At this moment our testlogs are increasing within the Rational TestManager tool.
I was looking for a simple way to archive most of them (to an archive project?) but I cannot find any information how to to this.
We are not using UCM. The list of builds and logs is really getting to long.
Has anybody experience in archiving testlogs and knows how to do this in a good way?
I could export everything to another project and delete the logs from the original, but then I would loose some links to requisite pro.
We are using the sequel server (not the access database)
One ugly but workable solution is to create a new project in Rational Administration and use the import TestDatastore feature. First, save off the old project to tape. Delete the logs from the old project. Then create the new project and import the data store from old project. Give the project a new specific to your build.
Logs seemed to float into the new project, so I choose to clean up the logs first.
Like I said, it is a sledge hammer approach. I will be watching for better suggestion from someone else.
I agree with markf, we tried that.
It worked until we messed up one of our tds.* databases (the cause of much of the source control issues with robot.) These databases are located in several spots in the TestDataStore and I have never commited the time to figuring them out. It was just easier to back the whole thing up and delete the builds.
