Can you provide an example of how I can preview a SilkCentral Test Manager report template in BIRT?

ANSWER
----------------------------------

  1. In SilkCentral Test Manager, go to "Administration > Reports" and download the "BarChart Template.rptdesign" and save it, see below:

  2. Open BIRT (double-click on BIRT.exe from the BIRT installation directory) and open the report (File > Open File, select the report you just saved in step 1).

  3. In the script tab you need to now uncomment the "var" section and comment out the "param" section as below:

    The important "var" that need to be altered are the host, port and sessionID.

    var host = "kdavis3"; - where kdavis3 is the hostname of the machine where you have SilkCentral and BIRT installed.

    var port = "19120"; - the port that SilkCentral uses.

    var sessionId = "6096370839277240121"; - To get the sessionID enter the following URL into your browser: :/services/sccsystem method=logonUser&painPasswd=&userName="> http://:/services/sccsystem?method=logonUser&painPasswd=&userName=

    You will need to alter the URL so that the host, port, username and password are relevant, for example:

    :/services/sccsystem?method=logonUser&painPasswd=admin&userName=admin"> http://kdavis3:19120/services/sccsystem?method=logonUser&painPasswd=admin&userName=admin

  4. Now you can preview the report by clicking on the preview tab:


Note:

If you download a template in SilkCentral Test Manager from the TestManager > Reports section and open it in BIRT, this will create a new template with the heading and the data ready to run in BIRT, but with actually no contents. These templates are used if you would like to create a new template, which you then upload to SilkCentral Test Manager for later use.

For information on how to download and install BIRT, please see resolution 23262.
