XML based Test Cases to Quality Center
      #649032 - 11/16/10 11:35 PM

Hi,

Right now we are using Quality Center for Test Management. Before this tool I was using Test Link tool. In test link the test cases are stored in XML files.

Now I want to Import these XML based Test Cases to Quality Center.

How can we do that. Please suggest.

Thanks,

Nishant Jain

Create a Manual Test in QC and then upload the XML as attachment to the Test.

Do you mean you have exported the test cases from Testlink to XML files?

Then there are 2 ways.
1. Open these XML files in Excel file and get the testcases into excel.
2. You can write a macro which parses the XML file and arrange the test cases.

Once you get test cases into Excel you can use Quality Center Excel Add-In to upload your test cases to QC.

When I open the XML file in excel, I have to do a lot of formating. Any tool that convert XML to excel in exact format.

You have to put little effort for formattig or developing parser to read XML. Any tool would expect some input from user to format.
