Do not use test suite as a general “bucket” that contains irrelevant test cases in order to automate the execution of those test cases. include only relevant requirements specific to the test plan. group related functional areas that need to be tested into its own test plans Each test plan should include requirements related to what the test plan covers.2. Therefore. Use Test Suite to group related test cases that can be executed as a unit. . when associating requirements to a test plan. Note: only requirements that are associated with a test plan can be associated with the test case.0 Link Requirements to Test Artifacts – Usage Guideline    When creating test plans.

0 Execute Test Script – process steps   RQM tracks the execution of each test case in a separate “Test Execution Record” (TER). To execute a single test case or a group of test cases. follow these steps in the RQM web UI: To execute a single test case -   Click on Execution icon and select View Test Cases Select the test case that you want to execute and click on the play button as shown below .3.

3.0 Execute Test Script – process steps  To execute a group of related test cases -  Click on Execution icon and select View Test Suites  Select the test suite that you want to execute and click on the play button as shown below. .

3.0 Execute Test Script – process steps  To execute a group of related test cases -  In the run test suite dialog. select the test suite and “Associate Results with a Test plan” checkboxes. Select the test plan and the associated milestone and click Run 8 .

0 Execute Test Script – process steps  To execute a group of related test cases  In the Test Suite Execution tab.3. click on the “Run Manual Test” link to start the execution of the test script associated with the test case. 9 .

0 Execute Test Script – process steps  To execute a group of related test cases  In the Test Case Execution tab.3. If the step fails. 10 . log a new defect (or link to existing) against the step. execute each step of the test script and capture the Actual Result.

0 Execute Test Script – Usage Guideline  The View Test Execution Records displays all the TERs that have been created for each test case that you executed.3. 11 .

12 .0 Execute Test Script – Usage Guideline  Each execution record points to an execution result record that you can open to find out the status of that particular execution/run by clicking on the link in the Last Result column of the View Test Execution Records tab.3.

0 Execute Test Script – Usage Guideline  Each execution record points to an execution result record that you can open to find out the status of that particular execution/run by clicking on the link in the Last Result column of the View Test Execution Records tab. 13 .3.

3. 14 . detail status of the execution steps.0 Execute Test Script – Usage Guideline  The execution result record (TER) shows the defects of the execution.

0 Log Defect – process steps  With the RQM-ClearQuest bridge.4. follow these steps. To log a defect when executing a step in the script.  In the Test Execution Record tab. copy the URL to the TER into the clipboard 15 . all defects are logged in ClearQuest as ADT_Defect from the RQM web interface.

4.0 Log Defect – process steps  In the test case execution tab. 16 . click on the defect icon for each step that you need to log a defect (new or link to existing).

17 . Log in using your ClearQuest credential as this will be used as the creator of the defect. Once authenticated. Fill out the required information as you normally would when using ADT_Defect in ClearQuest. RQM will display the log in dialog.0 Log Defect – process steps  If you have not been authenticated into ClearQuest. the CQ ADT_Defect form is displayed as follows.4.

18 .0 Log Defect – process steps  When you save the ADT_Defect. RQM displays the Test Execution Result of the script that you just ran.4.

0 Fix Defect  To validate a defect that is fixed.5. do the follow steps:  Click on the URL to the Test Execution Record from the long description of the ADT_Defect  Click Close and Show Results in the upper right hand corner of the failed TER 19 .

click on the test case that you want to re-execute.5.0 Fix Defect – Usage Guideline  In the Execution Result. 20 .

0 Fix Defect – Usage Guideline  In the Test Case tab. click Run to run the test case again.5. 21 . Note that this will create a new Test Execution Record for this test case.

6. In the CQ view. 22 . Notice that the link in the upper right takes you back to the RQM main view. you can run any queries that you normally do in ClearQuest such as a custom query that displays any ADT_Defect records that have state of validate_fix. etc.0 CQ Reports –  At this point. RQM displays the ClearQuest view.

g. select the reports that you want to run (e. do the following:  Click on the Reports icon and select All Reports.0 RQM Reports  RQM provides about 40 out of the box reports that test lead and testers can run. However.) 23 . The traceability of the TER (Test Execution Record) to the defects that are found during the execution are part of the RQM reporting.  In the reports tab. execution reports. you must use the ClearQuest view explained to run defect reports. keep in mind that since defects are created and managed in ClearQuest. reqs traceability.7. To run RQM reports. etc.
