Exporting Test Suites

Introduction

QMetry allows its users to export test suite details out of QMetry in Excel file format and save the file on to the computer hard drive. Users with a User Role that has “Export” rights assigned for the Test Suite module can export test suites. Role based user access control for the module is managed under Customization > Roles. If the role assigned to the user does not have rights to export test suites, the Export option will appear in the disabled mode for that user.

Steps

1. Go to the Test Suite module.

2. Select the folder on the tree.

3. The content on grid pane at the right depends on the folder that you select on the tree.

You can apply Filter criteria to test suite records to export only preferred test suites.

4. Click on the cog icon at the top right corner on the toolbar and select Export.

 

The next screen opens.

Select Export as XLSX/CSV and click Next.

Step 2 Select records: Select test suites you want to export. Once you are done with selecting test suites.

Export All Records: Click on the Export All Records link to select all the records across pages to export.

Click Next.
