I totally agree with the need of doing a search an replace of a word or expression on Test Cases, Requirements, etc.
But I do not understand the answer about 'batch update'. Is this action able to substitute just one word of the selected field? It seems to be dangerous if I replace the whole text content of several items wth a unique and same word.
Kristina, from my point of view this method (that we also are forced to use) is just a workaround for a JAMA limitation. If you are satisfied with it then Excel become a mandatory tool for using JAMA.
And this is just one example, editing test steps is even worse and again Excel is a must.
What's the update on Search and Replace? I was astonished to find (ha) that there is no search and replace capability in Jama. It's a very basic function of a database and would simplify the process greatly (the exporting/edit round-trip to Excel is awkward at best).
Case in point: We have a certain system component we are totally revamping (and renaming) for a next-gen project. I reused (without sync) the necessary requirements. Now to quickly search and replace the product name in the project... oh dang!
I would try to use the fix or change URL function as workaround for changing text. I have not tried that til now, but would give it a try when needing it badly.
Hi Cameron,Thank you for reaching out! Using the Excel round trip feature in batches is the best option for this process.We do not have a find and replace option in Jama. If you are interested in suggesting this as something you'd like to see in Jama, we would like to invite you to visit our Ideation module in the Community! This is a valuable space where we will be soliciting and gathering product feedback. You can go here, and use the search functionality to see if your idea is already in there. If it is, then you can vote and comment on the card. If there isn't, please post a new idea card!Please let me know if you have any questions.
