Problem:

How do I specify what Mercury Servers, domains and projects to display in the Quality Center tab of the traceability Modification window?

Resolution:

  • Product Name: CaliberRM
  • Product Version: N/A
  • Product Component: CaliberRM Server/Integrations
  • Platform/OS Version: CaliberRM 2005 R2 SP1

Description:

Can I use filters to specify the Mercury Servers, domains, and projects to display on the Quality Center tab of the Traceability Modification window?


Answer/Solution:

You will need to amend the QC_config.txt file by editing the Quality Center add-in in the Framework Administrator (please see the ?Integrating with Quality Center? pdf that is shipped with CaliberRM R2 SP1 for instructions on how to open this file for editing).

To define Quality Center servers available, you need to specify these servers first, each server on its own line.

To define filters, you need to specify the following string:

filter.=\\[;\\;...]

is an index of the Quality Center server in the list, provided in the first section of the config.

and are names of Quality Center domains or projects, or they can be asterisks ("*") if you want to include all possible domains or projects.

If you enable the integration for a CaliberRM project for which no filter is defined, all servers provided in the first section, as well as all domains and projects of these servers will be available. You need to provide separate filter string for each server in your servers list.

To define server versions, you need to specify the following string:

version.=[76/82]

Here, is an index of the Quality Center server in the list, provided in the first section of the config. After equality sign, you should specify either 76 or 82, depending on the version of the server.

Version 82 stands for Test Director 8.0, Quality Center 8.0 and QualityCenter 8.2, because they use the same interfaces. Note that you need only to specify version 76, because if you don"t specify version, 8.0/8.2 is assumed by default. You need to provide a separate version string for each server in your servers list.

Here is an example:

*** qc_config.txt ***

http://host_1:8080/qcbin

http://host_2:8080/qcbin

http://host_3:8080/qcbin

http://host_4:8080/qcbin

filter.Address Book=1\DEFAULT\QualityCenter_demo;2\*\*;3\DEFAULT\*

version.3=76

******************

This config means that you define 4 Quality Center servers available, and also define that for CaliberRM project "Address Book" the following Quality Center projects will be available:

server=http://host_1:8080/qcbin, domain=DEFAULT, project=QualityCenter_demo;

server=http://host_2:8080/qcbin, any project in any domain;

server=http://host_3:8080/qcbin, any project in the domain "DEFAULT"; the last Quality Center server will not be available for "Address Book";

server http://host_3:8080/qcbin is a TestDirector 7.6 server, other servers are Quality Center 8.2 (or TD 8.0 or QC 8.0).
