Importing the test cases in XML to Testlink
We are planning to use Test Link as our Test Management tool for our project and currently checking all the possibility of using Test link for your project.
We have around 10000 test cases in XML format, divided into many test suites. I would like to clarify on possibilities to import the test cases with the format we have currently, since we have many other tags which are not available in TestLink. When we try to import the test cases (in the format we have) to TestLink, it throws the error message saying "xml_load_ko".
Our sample Test case is as below:
<TestCase Number="150-205-008" FileName="TestCase Name" Source="Requirement name" OS_Host_Support="Supproted OS" OS_Host_Exclusion="Which OS need to be excluded" Config="Simple configuration or Complex configuration" FOS_Support="what platform supported" TestType="UI or Functionality" Editions="All" Obsolete="True or false">
<Title>Test Case title</Title>
<Objective>Verification need to be done for this test case</Objective>
1) Steps to perform testing.
1) Verification need to be done for testing.
But when i went through the TestLink file format document, i found that the text case should be in the below format for importing. And it works fine when i took one of my test case and modify according to this format.
<testcase name="Verifying XML suite">
<summary>Verifying XML import is succesfull</summary>
<steps>Import the XML</steps>
<expectedresults>XML should import succesfull</expectedresults>
Could you please help us understanding whether we need to change all 10000 test cases to the supported format or we have any work around to import the same XML into TestLink.
Thanks in Advance!!
You can use the Excel format to import testcases to Testlink. All you need are these 4 columns in your .xls file (Name, Summary, Steps, Expected Results). Hope this helps.
