Mass Updates of Test Plans
Changes made to Test Plan Properties and Test Plan Property Sets can be updated at once in all related Test Plans where changed Test Plan Properties/Test Plan Property Sets are assigned.
When this function is run, the current, valid Test Plan may be marked with a Valid to date and a new Test Plan version may be created with a Valid from date. The new Test Plan version is a copy of the original Test Plan version. It will include all information for all other Property Sets/Properties and the updated information for the current Property Set or Property.
Update Test Plans
In the Test Property Card and Test Property Set pages, choose the Update Test Plans action to open a request page with several options.
The fields in the Validity FastTab are described in the following table.
|Active Version "Valid To"||Indicates the date to which the current Test Plan Version will be valid.
Typically, this will be the day before the New Version “Valid From” date.
|New Version "Valid From"||Indicates the date from which the new Test Plan Version will be valid.
Typically, this will be the day after the Active Version “Valid To” date.
|Use Record Selection||Determines if a page opens that lists all test plan properties and test plan property sets that can be selected for updating.|
|Copy From Certified Test Plans||Determines if the latest, valid certified Test Plans will be included in the update process. Otherwise, the latest version will be selected and status together with valid date period is not relevant.
This setting defaults from the Quality Assurance Setup page but can be changed in the request page.
Updating Test Plans from Test Properties
Although most settings in Test Properties are typically defined in the Test Property Sets, there are instances where a standard criteria is valid for all tests. If one of these criterion is changed, the Update Test Plan function will handle this change in all related Test Plan Property Sets in the Test Plans.
The actual Test Plan Property Sets are not changed with this function.
Updating Test Plans from Test Property Sets
In most situations, Test Plans should be updated from the Test Property Set because of the specifically defined properties.
