Problem:

Why do I get the error :Failed to add element to version control data base..when adding a test in Mercury Quality Center?

Resolution:

  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: All
  • Product Component: Integration
  • Platform/OS Version: All

Question:

When adding a test in Mercury Quality Center why do I get the following error?

"Failed to add element to version control database...;
Failed to get VC plug in object.
Failed to get connected plugin project.
Failed to create or connect to VC plug in object."


Answer:

One possible reason for this is that you are logged in using the Site Admin account of Quality Centre. You cannot use the Site Administrator to perform version control. A workaround would be to create a user in MQC who has Site Admin privileges and then add this user to StarTeam.
