Will XML import allow updates to test case descriptions?


#1

I have been trying to upload an xml file which was edited - however, after choosing the file and selecting to update the test cases – nothing happens.

The only change in the xml is within the description - are description updates via xml import not supported?

Hi Jesus,

Thanks for your posting. Do you mean the section or case descriptions? The update mode only updates the test cases but this would include all fields as specified in the XML file. The cases are identified by the case IDs and updated to the current values in the XML file.

Cheers,
Tobias

Apologies for the confusion. I meant section descriptions. From your response - it sounds sounds as though they would not be updated :frowning:

Hi Jesus,

Yes, that’s correct and the import with the update option would only update the case IDs (and ignores the sections). Happy to look into this for a future update, thanks for the suggestion!

Cheers,
Tobias
