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.

Export Test Suites to PDF

You can export complete test execution details into PDF. The PDF document contains the test suite details with all the test execution details, test case and steps details, execution status, linked attachments, bug details, etc. This PDF can be shared as compliance and audit evidence. You can also choose details to be exported into PDF.

Use Case: From compliance and regulatory audience, it is necessary for organizations to prepare and provide validation documentation where users upload all the test executions along with their attachments. This requires all details exported to a PDF document and uploaded to the compliance documentation portal.
