Extracting Data from Silk with SQL


We are attempting to create a simple issues (bug) report in Silk to give us details on issues found within testing cycles.

The reason for this is the issues report that fetches data from JIRA currently pulls in all issue types, not just 'Bugs' and 'Sub-task bugs' that we would like to report on. Also, the widget on the Silk dashboard is very simple, only returning issues logged on the project per tester, for the entire period of the project.

We attempted to create some SQL by looking at the tables within the .png images in Help > Documentation > Silk Central Database Schema. This proved very difficult as you cannot search for fields and we could not establish which fields were the key or linking fields between tables that hold issue details and tables regarding testing cycles.

> To help us create this report could you advise what tables/fields link issues to testing cycles?
> For future reports would it possible to get more details on what the key fields are and any linking fields between tables?

Any help would be appreciated.

there is a similar question and a sample SQL to query issues found during a testing cycle in community.microfocus.com/.../13813.aspx

Specifically, the table TM_Issues contains the ID of a test run that can be associated to a testing cycle:

SELECT tse.TestID "TestDefID", tse.TestName, i.*, tse.ProjectID_fk "ProjectID"

FROM RV_TestStatusExtended tse

 INNER JOIN TM_Issues i on i.TestDefExecID_fk = tse.TestRunID

WHERE tse.ExecutionParentFolderID = ${execNode_Id_0|3|Testing Cycle ID}
