ALM 11 - TreeManager.getNodeByPath return incorrect node



I'm using TreeManager.getNodeByPath for verifying if a node path exists, if not I browse recursively the path up to find the node from where I need to recreate the missing subfolders.


Function GetParentNodeID(strFullPath) as Long
'''' ..some code before.. '''' On Error Resume Next Set objFolder = objTreeManager.NodeByPath(strFullPath) If Err.Number And Not Err.Number = ALM_ERROR_TEST_NODE_NOTFOUND Then Err.Raise Err.Number, Err.Source, Err.Description If objFolder Is Nothing Then nLen = Len(strFullPath) nPos = InStrRev(strFullPath, "\") strPath = Left(strFullPath, nPos - 1) strFolder = Right(strFullPath, nLen - nPos) nNodeId = GetParentNodeID(strPath) Set objFolder = objTreeManager.NodeById(nNodeId).AddNode(strFolder) End If GetParentNodeID = objFolder.NodeID End Function

In the Test Plan, I have the following folder structure:

------------>TT012345-PR0001-International Access ZYX
--------------->Change Scenario
------------------>Case01-Access creation using Wapz
--------------------->Sub Case 01 - Business User REP
------------------------>Client 01 - External Client

If I'm using getNodePath with the path "Subject\Product2015_04_JUNE_19\SAN\TT012345-PR0001-International Access ZYX\Change Scenario\Case01-Access creation using Wapz\Sub Case 01 - Business User REP\Client 01 - External Client\Components" (the top folder 0-LEGACY is omitted), the function returns the existing node "Components" from the structure above when I'm expecting an error "Node not found".


As an alternative, I also tried to use the function GetSubjectNodeByPath provided in the documentation but I face the same issue.


Any idea how to solve this issue?

Re: ALM 11 - TreeManager.getNodeByPath return incorrect node

There is a defect in the get_NodeByPath detected in Patch 12 for ALM 11.0 . However R&D has not scheduled a fix for it yet. You may wish to log a case with HP Support and enquire about a fix for defect with public ID QCCR1J72394 .
