Converting shared steps into excel

Jump to solution

Hi,

I am trying to export all of my test scripts into Excel and the Shared steps are not being exported instead i see only the shared steps numbers. I am using an old version of the SIlk 12.1 and i am upgrading into the newer one soon. Is this feature available in the latest version?

 

Thanks

Hi,

Unfortunately this is not something that is possible in older versions, or in the next few versions going forward.

This is due to the way in which the exporting of tests work within Excel.

To get this functionality to work, it would involve having dynamic Excel sheets storing changing libraries and tests.

If you are wanting to export these across databases (eg from test to production server), instead of using a database copy, you can instead export and import your projects.

This will move all of your shared step libraries over to the production server.

You will also be able to copy and paste tests from one project to another, which will then link to the shared steps.

I hope this helps.

Thanks,

Conor
