Link Objects

Linking objects is a great way to show test coverage for test cases, requirements, test runs, and defects from qTest Manager. Below is an example on how to link you test session to a requirement. 

Link Requirements dialog will be shown for you to browse or search for requirements that are associated with the current project.

The system will show a dialog for you to confirm the action, select OK to unlink the selected requirements.

View in qTest Manager

Now that you have linked your objects, you can see each session in qTest Manager.  In this example, we linked our session to multiple requirements.  

Once I click on the requirement in qTest Manager, I can see a link back to my test session under the resource tab.

Attach Files to Session

To attach files to current editing session, you can do one of the following:

  • Drag files from your local machine to Attachments group OR

Annotate screens
