Import and Export Parameters

Import Parameter

From the Parameters Grid page, click the Import button.  The Import Parameters pop-up window is displayed letting you import your file.

Select the projects where you want to use your imported parameters.

Clicking the "Clear All Projects" link will remove 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 Manager 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 parameter (default option): Do not import the duplicate parameter; leave the existing parameter in the system as is.

Import Result

The Import 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.  

Click the SKIPPED number to see a list of duplicated parameters that were skipped during the import.

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.
