When I generate a requirements report, how do I stop the 'Requirements' folder form appearing on my requirements report? Is there any way to stop folders from appearing on this report, and show only requirements?
I even filter 'Requirement Type' and the folders still appear in the report.
1 Requirements (folder)
1.1 Req ID : 365 - Demo (folder)
Could somebody let me know if there is a possibility of using the Mirroring feature on different browsers in the same machine.
For example, I want to test the web application on IE, Chrome and Firefox. I will be performing the test on Chrome browser and same user actions need to be replicated/mirrored on IE and firefox browsers in the same machine. Is it possible?
Appreciate all help!
in the send mails of requirements in the lower part there are the "Requirement Details".
Now we have the field "Rich Text" at the end of the mail which is very uncomfortable, because we have to scroll two pages down in fact of the "Comments" before.
So, my question: How can I customize the field order of these fields that for example "Rich Text" stands before "Comments"?
I had a question with respect to the HPALM software :
If there are certain number of requirements which are defined in HPALM and there are certain team members who have read access to this requirements. If in the future anz requirement changes how can i put notification so there is an auto email generated to all associated people about the requirement update.
I have tried to undo check out but still i get the error. Am new to QC.
I am a new user (no admin rights) and I've looked at the user guide with no luck. Here's what I was hoping to do with the Group requirement type. I wanted to create a Group with a custom name, in a Folder, and add my requirements to that Group. I envisioned the following:
My assumption was that I would be able to select a requirement, change the type to Group, somehow rename of the Group and continue to use that new name as a custom group for say 20 of my 60 requirements in that folder.
That did not happen. Is this possible? Or, is this some kind of admin thing?
When a requirement status is changed, I send an email using the "Mail" method. It's sysntax is:
I am able to send an email. However, the FromTo email, which is not part of the "Mail" method, is automatically set to the logged in user, who changed the requirement status.
I would like to default the "FromTo" email to a constant email address say "email@example.com".
Can I do that?
I referred an old post (URL attached below), where it says we cannot do it. However, since the post was logged in 2008, I was wondering if it can be done.
FYI: I am using HP QC Enterprise Ver 12.50
Please help. Thank you!
Hi ,Please help me with a Query to count and classify the requirement types in a requirement folder.
I have downloaded the excel add-on, which still only creates a flat file with the parent directories.
I have also attempted to create a template under the analysis view, however the 'Special Properties' selection of 'Keep Hierarchial' is disabled.
In the requirements module, I would like to disable the "Folder". it will be enabled only if the user belongs to the TDAMIN group. The "folder option" can be accessed in 3 different ways. Refer the attached screenshot for details.
For all the 3 options, for UserGroups apart from TDAMIN, I was thinking of trapping the "ActionName" in the Function ActionCanExecute() and then display a message that "You do not have this access". But the user experience will not be right. I would like to disable the "Folder" option, the moment the User logs in to QC.
Please suggest how can I do it for all the 3 options. Thanks!
I mistakenly added an approver to the list of approvers. All the approved approvers approved the requirement P04-PRO-15 (ID 118) of the project RP3_GRA_RPA but the status did not pass to "for quality approval". I changed the list of approvers to remove the mistaken appleter (Marianne Brodeck) but the status has not changed.Is it possible to switch the status of this requirement to "for quality approval" so that the quality approver can approve it?
Maybe we're using ALM incorrectly, but when we release a new version of our software, I go to Releases, then create a release, then create a scope item, then check the boxes next to the requirement that are part of that release.
I want a tabular report that shows requirement id with its release name. I think the information I want is in the tables named req, req_releases, releases and qpm_scope_item but I cannot figure out how to write an SQL statement in the Analysis View that extracts the information correctly.
SELECT rq_req_id, rq_req_name, sci_name, rel_name
as a test which works in a dummy project I set up, but not in the real project that we're using.
Is there a way to get what I want from ALM?
I have checked all filters, both in the report and requirements view - nothing is selected.
Thanks in advance
I click new field button but i see error pop-up. But i can create new field on defect module.
Error code : 0x800413EC
Thanks a lot.
So we have a script working that automatically goes down the list of tests in Test Plan (you have to supply the folder path) and links every test to a requirement. The tests have a custom field called Req Ref ID, which we populate with the IDs of any requirements, and the requirements have a required field of the same name. The script simply checks the two fields, sees if there are any matches, and performs the linkage. The problem is: it crashes if it hits a test that has existing linkage. The solutions I could think of range from complicated to dangerous. The best option I can think of is to have it check whether a test has coverage or not, if no perform linkage, if yes wipe out existing coverage, then perform linkage. I'm not great at VBScript, though, and don't really know how to make it remove existing coverage. If anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it... Here's the script:

I have 3 folder in requirements module. One of them has the all requirements within. Every each requirements has a field which keeps information about folder that the requirement will be moved. I would like to move all the requirement to related folder automatically.
Folder A -> 50 requirements
Folder B -> 0 requirement
Folder C -> 0 requirement
In Folder A, 20 requirements should be moved to Folder B, 30 requirements should be moved to Folder C. It will be specified by the special requirement field which should moved to which folder.
It can be SQL Procedure or action does not matter.
Thanks in advance.
Hello Good Day All,
In ALM 12.53 version Requirement module - when i change the status for any of the requirement type am getting the below error-
"You do not have the required permissions to execute this action . "
Its not allowing me to change even for the TD Admin , and for all other roles in project.
I have changed status from Any to Any , also workflow but still no clue for this .
PLease any one have any idea suggest me .
Thanks & Regards
Requirement user template entities - not visible or updateable in Requirement Module
A project was set up with RQ_User fields created and then requirements(2800) had been captured..
Later I decided to create a template project and copied the original project customisation as a basis.
I now manage all access permisions and entities etc through this template project (the original project now being linked to this)
- our Bug User _Template entities work just fine -
I now have added some new Rq_ User_Template entities and updated all the linked projects.
the problem is:-
1/ the requirement user template entities - are not visible in the Requirement details view at all
2/ Two of the new entities are Project Lists - and the list items/values are not visible in any of the requirement module views
3/ these new entities are not updateable in any of the requirement module views
4/ all the new User Template entities are visible in the Customize/Project Entities/Requirements/User Fields - so they have been rolled out to the project
5/ even with TDAdmin access - I cannot amend these fields
6/ the Template Project does have the original User Entities as RQ_User_01 - 10 as well
any suggestions please?
can I put some coding in the Workflow to make these accesible - if so please could you supply this
is it because I have a mixture of User Entities (created and populated in the original project) and new User Template Entities?
I will be grateful of some help please - I have 10+ projects linked to this and don't want to hard code this in each project, and iof course, any new ones. Plus I cannot lose any history/audit trail on any of the existing projects - so I cannot recreate/copy all the original fields/entities as template fields.
hope that is as clear as mud
if we changed somethink in an existing requirements and the "Assigned To" is filled in, automatic mails will send... all right!
But is it possible to script that the history, all comments and the actual attachments will send by default, too?
I know, that you can send all these points by checking the checkboxes for manual sending, but what is the script settings to send also for automatic mails?
