Update from Test Steps with Roundtrip Import

  • 1.  Update from Test Steps with Roundtrip Import

    Posted 06-13-2019 06:09
    ​​Hi,

    We would like to make used of Roundtrip Import to update Test Steps from Test Cases.

    Currently I noticed, the Export from Items for Rountrip Import does not give out the Test Steps.  So it is not possible for user to update the existing Steps or add an additional Step to the existing Step list.

    Users muss enter all the steps manually in the exported Excel including the exisitng ones in Jama und the updated one. If users do not do so, after using the Roundtrip Import, jama removed the existing steps.

    Any modifications can be done on the Report  Template for the Export Excel (using Export using  Templates) being used for Rountrip Import?

    Thanks

    Hi Lien:

    I could not find any modifications you could do to make updating Test Steps work using the Roundtrip functionality. I would recommend taking a look at how you can execute tests using the REST API as outlined in our API Cookbook.

    Hi Lien -
    This statement caught my attention:
    "Currently I noticed, the Export from Items for Rountrip Import does not give out the Test Steps."

    When you selected "Export" from the list view, was the field "Steps" visible? In my experience all the information about Steps (Action, Expected Results, etc) will be exported when the "Steps" field is displayed.

    Thanks,

    Hi Theresa,
    with the normal  Export to Excel, yes. By selecting Steps in List View, I could get the Information about the Steps.

    But for the roundtrip, I would Need to use the "Export using template" Export. Unfortunately, this one does not give me the Steps .-(

    Thanks

    Hi Lien -
    Which version of Jama are you using? We have on-premises 8.36.0.
    For what it's worth, when I use the "Excel Export for Roundtrip":


    On this data:

    I get this spreadsheet with step information:

    Is this the step information you are looking for?

    Thanks,
