Bulk edit selected test cases


#1

Hi,

Is there a way to bulk edit test cases and add same word in their titles without exporting them as excel and editing them and reimporting them.

Thanks,
Garima

Hi Garima,

This wouldn’t be possible from the Web GUI as any bulk editing as each field being updated will only replace data rather than append. Depending on how much editing is need it may be worth scripting this using the API.

Do note that while CSV/Excel is an export option, the two dimensional limits makes it impossible to properly handle test steps, you will see that test steps are clumped into a single cell. Therefore importing a CSV/Excel with test steps is going to be difficult. It is better to use the XML export, edit, then import with " Update existing test cases" selected.
