  • Iterative Test Setup in Test Plan and Test Lab
Question ID: 106366

We have a test script that would like to run for 10 Iterations with variant data combinations.
We don’t use BPT but would like measure test progress using Dashboard. Can you guide how to setup the structure in HP QC?

I have listed the steps below as explained in the User Guide for Test Configurations, which can also be located on pages 492 and 493 of the HP User Guide. The User Guide can be downloaded from the following location:

1. Define test configurations
In the test plan tree, select the user_type test and click the Test Configuration tab. Rename
the existing test configuration to test_user_1. Define the following test configurations:
test_user_2 and test_user_3. In the Data tab, for each test configuration, specify
the data to be used for testing each scenario.

2. Create coverage
In the Req Coverage tab, create requirement coverage between the user_type_req
requirement and the user_type test. Click Add to Coverage. The Add Configuration
Coverage dialog box opens and displays the available test configurations. Add the test
configurations to coverage. The Test Configuration Settings tab lists the test configurations
included in the coverage.

3. Define a test set
In the Execution Grid tab of the Test Lab module, create a test set based on your coverage.
Add the user_type_req requirement from the Requirements Tree pane. Note that the Test
Coverage pane lists the tests that cover the selected requirement. The Execution Grid displays
the test configurations included in the test set.

4. View test results
After running the test set, view the results. The Test Runs tab indicates that the test run with
the test_user_3 test configuration failed, and that the test run with the test_user_1
and test_user_2 test configurations passed.
