Display User Full name

Status: Declined

User Name must remain by defalt as it's unique.

See status update history

 Can you auto populate user full name instead of Short name in QC fields?

for example if we create any new requirement/test case/defect for below fields it is showing users short name.

Requirements--> Author
Test Plan--> Designer
Defects--> Detected By

  • I have created some new template user fields for "User Name" which are filled by calling this function:

    Function Template_GetFullName(UserID)
      On Error Resume Next
             'Represents a single server connection to the ALM-Server
             Dim objtdc
             'Customization services Objekt
             Dim objcustomization
             'The collection of all CustomizationUser objects
             Dim objCustUsers
             'Represents a user
             Dim objUser
             'TD-Connection aufbauen
             set objtdc = TDConnection
             Set objcustomization = objtdc.Customization
             Set objCustUsers = objcustomization.Users
             Set objUser = objCustUsers.User(UserID)
             'Vollständigen Namen auslesen und zurückgeben
             Template_GetFullName = objUser.FullName
             Set objtdc = Nothing
             Set objcustomization = Nothing
             Set objCustUsers = Nothing
             Set objUser = Nothing
      On Error GoTo 0
    End Function

    This is call e.g. in Template_Bug_MoveTo, Template_Bug_New,Template_Bug_FieldChange(FieldName) , Test_MoveTo

        if Bug_Fields.Field("BG_DETECTED_BY").Value = "" then
           Bug_Fields.Field("BG_USER_TEMPLATE_03").Value = ""
        Elseif Bug_Fields.Field("BG_DETECTED_BY").Value <> "" and Bug_Fields.Field("BG_USER_TEMPLATE_03").Value ="" then
           Bug_Fields.Field("BG_USER_TEMPLATE_03").Value = Template_GetFullName(Bug_Fields.Field("BG_DETECTED_BY").Value)
        End if
        if Bug_Fields.Field("BG_RESPONSIBLE").Value = "" then
           Bug_Fields.Field("BG_USER_TEMPLATE_04").Value = ""
        Elseif Bug_Fields.Field("BG_RESPONSIBLE").Value <> "" and Bug_Fields.Field("BG_USER_TEMPLATE_04").Value = "" then
            Bug_Fields.Field("BG_USER_TEMPLATE_04").Value = Template_GetFullName(Bug_Fields.Field("BG_RESPONSIBLE").Value)
        End if

    Works for me

  • ALM/Quality Center use User Name as the unique name for all users.

    The Full Name is visibile when assigning users to any user field or as tooltip one hover
