Is it possible to customise the Project Overview Report in SilkCentral Test Manager?

Problem:

Is it possible to customise the Project Overview Report in SilkCentral Test Manager?

Resolution:

It is possible to alter the Project Overview report. The report template can be retrieved in the following directory:


C:\Program Files\Borland\SC Test Manager \StandardReports

or

Download from SilkCentral Test Manager | Administration | Reports | Report Templates tab | Project OverviewReport (see below)

1. Copy ProjectOverviewReport.rpt and rename. (It is always recommended to keep a copy of the original template).
2. Open report template in Birt and make the necessary changes

Note: most of the texts in the report are localised and will be taken from a properties file.

e.g.

If altering the title "Project Overview Report" in the ProjectOverviewReport template and uploading back to SilkCentral Test Manager, no change will be seen. The entries for the Project Overview Report will need to be changed in the birtreport properties file. This can be found in C:\Program Files\Borland\SC Test Manager 2008\Conf\Birt\birtreport.properties.

These values in the properties file can be mapped in BIRT to the "Content Key" property in the "Layout" tab. (See Below)

3. Upload the report template back to Test Manager using the "Update Report Template" action.
