Import and Export Parameters


Within Parameters, you can both Import and Export Parameters for testing. 

Import Parameters

To Import Parameters, follow these steps:

  1. Inside Parameters, select the Import icon. The "Import Parameters" dialog displays. 
  2. Select the Project(s) in which you want your parameters imported by selecting the +PROJECTS icon. In the drop-down menu, select your project(s).
    • Note: You can either search for a project in the search field or, select the checkbox(es) next to the project(s) you wish to choose.
    • Hint: Unchecking the "All" checkbox will deselect all projects from the drop-down menu. However, since Project is a required field, you must specify at least one project into which the parameters will be imported.
  3. Drag and drop your Excel file containing the parameters into the Drag and Drop field, or, select the "click here to pick a file from folder" link to choose your Excel file from your computer's storage.
    • Important: 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.
  4. Choose your preferred method of dealing with duplicate parameters in the field near the bottom of the dialog. The options are summarized below:
    • Overwrite duplicate parameters: Replace an existing parameter in the system, and all of its values with new values 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 to existing parameters: Keep the existing parameter in the system and import more values (from the import file) to the existing parameters
  5. Select Import.

Import Parameter Result

The "Import Parameter Result" dialog box tells you the number of successfully 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:import-prm-result-01.png

Export Parameters

AS well as importing parameters, users can also Export Parameters. 

To Export Parameters, follow these steps:

  1. In Parameters, select the checkbox(es) next to the Parameter(s) you wish to Export.
    • NOTE: The system only exports the first 100 selected parameters at once, and archived parameters are not exported.
  2. Select the Actions drop-down menu, and select Export.
  3. When the export is completed, select Download exported file.
