Import and Export Parameters

Import Parameter

From the Parameters home page, click the Import button.


The Import Parameters pop-up window is displayed.


Select the projects where you want to use your imported parameters by clicking on `+ PROJECT` button. By default all projects that you are the members of are selected.


Unchecking the "All" checkbox will deselect all projects from the drop-down box.  However, since Project is a required field, you must specify at least one project into which the parameters will be imported.

Select the import file. The file must follow the sample template for qTest Parameters to recognize it.  As a best practice, you should download the template and include your own values in it.  You can either drag and drop the file or pick it from your computer.

Select the option to handle duplicate parameters (if any).  In case your import file contains identifiers which exist in the system, you can specify the way you want to handle them by selecting one of the following options.

  • Overwrite duplicate parameters: Replace an existing parameter in the system, and all of its values, with a new one from the import file.
  • Add data to existing parameters: Keep the existing parameter in the system and import more values (from the import file) to the existing parameter.
  • Skip duplicate parameters (default option): Do not import the duplicate parameter; leave the existing parameter in the system as is.

Import Parameter Result

The Import Parameter Result dialog box tells you the number of successful imported parameters, the number of failures, and the list of failed-to-import parameters.

For example, when you import a file with nine new parameters and one duplicate parameter (duplicated with an existing identifier in the system), and then select the option "Skip duplicate parameters", you will receive the following result after the import. 

Imported parameters


Skipped parameters


Export Parameter

When you click the checkbox to select all parameters or several parameters in the grid, the Export button is displayed.  Click on it to export your selected parameters to an .xlsx file.

NOTE: The system only exports the first 100 selected parameters at once, and archived parameters will not be exported.


When export is completed, click on Download exported file link to download exported file.
