Working with integration test artifacts in HP Quality Center

You can create tests in HP Quality Center by using the GH-Tester test type. You can also link HCL OneTest API tests to HP Quality Center tests with the Quick Link tool.

Before you can use the links in the test output in Rational Quality Manager, you must publish the details of your results database connection from the HCL OneTest API project that contains the test case to HCL Quality Server. Do this task by clicking Publish results database connection in the Project Settings dialog. For more information, see Project settings. Publishing the results database connection is mandatory for every project on the following occasions:
  • After you configure the results database, but before you attempt to view results in HCL Quality Server. For more information about configuring the results database, see Configuring the project results database.
  • After updating the results database settings.
If you do not publish the details, the link (in the test output displayed in Rational® Quality Manager) to the Results Gallery in HCL Quality Server will not work.

Navigating HP Quality Center

You create tests in the Test Plan module, and then create test sets and add tests to them in the Test Lab module. Test sets are collections of tests, similar to test suites in HCL OneTest API. You also run tests and view the execution results in the Test Lab module.

Note: When the automatic deployment option in Quality Center is enabled, clients that are accessing the server must have local administrator privileges to download and install plug-in files. If the client browser fails to load these files or hangs, verify that the current user account has the appropriate privileges.
