Silk Central 220.127.116.11 - Unable to import requirements from Excel where the requirement type is 'List'
Hi. The company I work for has created a number of custom Requirement Properties. When creating requirements via an import from Excel 2016 I appear to have encountered problem where the 'Type' of the custom Requirement Property is 'List'.
In this situation, I specify one of the valid values in my spreadsheet exactly as we have configured them against the 'List' type Requirement Property. Subsequently, the import appears to have worked successfully with all of the expected requirements being created, however, for these 'List' type Requirement Properties the fields are blank. The valid value I specified on my Excel spreadsheet is not populated in the corresponding field. I then have to go through and populate the fields manually.
Just wondering if there is something I need to do differently when populating the values on my spreadsheet for these 'List' type Requirement Properties. Some different formatting I need to use possibly? I've been through the help and had a look on the forums/wiki here, but couldn't find anything that helped.
Which hotfix version of Silk Central 17.0 do you have installed?
Silk Central 17.0 Hotfix 3 includes a RPI-Fix that sounds very similar to your problem
Thanks very much for the response. I've just asked and it sounds like we've not got hotfix 3 installed currently, but there are some discussions sheduled for next week about us taking some updates, which sounds promising.
No problem, you are welcome.
Btw, there is already Hotfix 5 available for Silk Central 17.0.
In hotfix 3 we fixed an issue with importing custom requirement properties of type list.
The property value of the parent node, on which the import was done, was written for the requirement instead of the value from the Excel file.
